Impove Your Body’s Natural Balance
Maca is a root vegetable that has been cultivated in the Peruvian Andes for over 2,600 years and is now considered a superfood that improves energy, stamina and libido.
A powerful adaptogen, maca improves the body’s natural balance or homeostasis and supports the endocrine system, the adrenals, and the thyroid, improves mood, and helps support healthy hormone production.
Typically recommended for relief from hot flashes, maca is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur, sodium and iron as well as vitamins B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), C and E. It also contains zinc, iodine, copper, selenium, manganese and silicon.
When buying maca, look for the organic, raw, dried, powdered root.
