Organic Maca Powder
Maca is a root vegetable native to the high Andes. It is extremely hardy and can survive at very high altitudes and very low temperatures where little else will grow. The root is a storage organ for nutrients and when taken from the earth comes in a variety of colours. Maca is a source of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, calcium and iron which all contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism. It also contains zinc which contributes to normal fertility and reproduction, as well as normal levels of testosterone in the blood. Riboflavin and zinc additionally support the regulation of hormonal activity and help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
How to use maca: Add to baking for a smooth malty flavour, or smoothies for a tangy taste of Peru. Enjoy as a part of a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet. Add to smoothies, milkshakes, warm drinks, energy bars, biscuits or brownies. We recommend up to 10-15 g per day.
