Maca, a root vegetable, is an ancient superfood of the Incas rich in calcium, potassium, iron, essential fatty acids, and protein. Raw Maca is a blend of all 3 raw root types: yellow, red and black. Each Maca colour has different properties.
Maca is a nutritionally dense perennial tuber that absorbs and stores nutrients. Maca is native to the Peruvian Andes and belongs to the cruciferous vegetable family. It is typically grown as a root vegetable in harsh weather conditions and high altitudes.
Maca is sometimes referred to as “Peruvian ginseng” and was highly revered by the Inca for its wonderfully rich nutritional properties. Maca is an adaptogen, known for its ability to increase energy, build physical strength, improve mood, reduce anxiety and heighten libido. It is rich in essential minerals, EFAs, amino acids and polysaccharides. Maca root contains over 55 naturally occurring, beneficial phyto-chemicals that work in tandem with the body’s natural rhythms. Maca root helps rebuild weak immune systems, re-mineralize poorly nourished bodies and increase energy and endurance.

This Maca product does everything I was hoping for. I started using it about two weeks ago. Contrary to what I read about the taste, it smells and tastes really good. I started with the recommended daily amount and never experienced any negative effects. Within a week, I was waking up feeling less tired and having more energy during the day. At first I thought it was because I wanted to feel less tired with more energy and maybe it was all in my head and I needed to give it a little more time to be sure. Not so. I really do feel more energetic during the day, already, after only two weeks. There are many good reasons for useing this Maca, not only for energy. To me, the other benefits are just added bonuses. If I continue to feel these wonderful effects, this product will be something I will be useing for many years to come.
Wish I had known about this superior superfood before now.
I use it daily in my smoothie.

Nice product. I am not usually sensitive to any foods or supplements.. but this does not do well with my stomach! I've found that not taking the full amount at once helps. I take smaller amounts throughout the day mixed in with shakes.. and always with food! That seems to help.
