Organic Maca Powder
Country of Origin:
Our organic maca powder is a nutritional powerhouse, providing key macro and micronutrients, and unique plant compounds to support an active human body. As far as micronutrients go, maca powder is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, copper, and zinc.
Maca powder has a sweet nutty taste with hints of butterscotch. It can be mixed easily into healthy smoothies, shakes, cereals and warm drinks, and can be added to desserts and baked goods. Add some to your favorite pancake batter to create an energizing breakfast.
Farmers have cultivated the Peruvian plant for more than 3,000 years in the Andes mountains, but the radish relative has recently popped up in everything from lattes and smoothies to capsules and even beauty products. It was used by the Incas in traditional medicine. Most of its medical benefits have not been clearly proven but none can neglect its very good nutritional profile.
Proponents allege dried, powdered maca can help with everything from low energy levels to menopause. Its most famous claim to fame, though, is as a natural libido booster in men and women.
