Maca is a potent, ancient Peruvian superfood highly prized by Incan warriors to increase stamina, boost libido and combat fatigue. It’s nature’s highest concentration of proteins, calcium, vitamins and 18 amino acids. In its powder form, it can be easily integrated into your current diet; add a few tablespoons to baked goods or stir it into your breakfast cereal or morning smoothie for a gluten-free source of fibre and protein.
Just one teaspoon in your smoothie once or twice a day can do amazing things. Once you’ve acquired the taste, you can also sprinkle Maca powder onto foods like non-dairy yogurt, salad, oatmeal or add it to your baking! Here are just a few of the things you can expect Maca to help with:
Energy: Most people feel their mood and energy level lift almost instantly.
Vitamin packed: Maca includes 55 phyto-chemicals, including vitamins B1, B2, B12, and Vitamin C, zinc. It has amino acids, calcium and phosphorus as well.
Sex Drive: Maca has been shown to increase not only the male sex drive, but the production of sperm as well.
Immune Booster: Maca’s 22 fatty acids function both as a fungicide and as a local antiseptic. These actions, along with natural Vitamin C and zinc are believed to help aid in overall immunity enhancement.
Stress: Maca can help lower high blood pressure and how the body burns and utilizes food.
