Certified Organic Raw Maca Powder.
Organic Maca Powder is a root vegetable which is grown at high altitudes in the mountainous regions of Peru. This certified organic maca is carefully hand selected, dehydrated at low temperatures and then milled into a powder to preserve the integrity of this precious root. Maca is a valuable food which has been used amongst native Peruvians as an important stable since pre-Inca times. More specifically, it has been used by native people for thousands of years for nutritional balance of hormone function.
As an adaptogen and tonic, maca may boost your overall health in a number of ways. It’s packed with iron and vitamin C and contains all the essential amino acids that we require to thrive. Iron helps restore red blood cells, which aids in avoiding anaemia and cardiovascular diseases. Maca is also believed to promote prostate health. The nutrients in maca have also long been valued for keeping bones and teeth healthy and helping wounds to heal more quickly. Other benefits include increased fertility in both men and women, hormone balance, strengthening of the immune system, and increased energy, stamina, memory and focus. Maca’s ability to balance hormones is often credited to its stimulation of the hypothalamus and pituitary glands due to the large quantity of phytonutrients it contains.
Also known as a Peruvian Ginseng, maca powder is free from artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners and preservatives. With its mild nutty taste and hint of butterscotch flavour it's the perfect health booster in smoothies, cooking & baking.
