Grown organically on the high plateaus of the Andes Mountains, Maca has been cultivated in central Peru for 3000 years. Full of antioxidants and vital micronutrients, this adaptogenic root vegetable has been proven to increase energy, reduce anxiety, balance hormones, and improve immunity. Maca has even been shown to act as an aphrodisiac.
Why we love it:
- Increases stamina in the bedroom AND in other athletic endeavours
- Works as an excellent coffee substitute, offering sustained energy without the jitters
- Boosts the immune system to help fight colds and other ailments
- Subtle, nutty flavour makes for a great addition in baked goods and smoothies
