Found high in the remote Andes Mountains, Maca, also known as Peruvian Ginseng, is a small tuberous plant native to South America. Grown in extreme conditions, at altitudes of 3500 – 4000 meters above sea level, it is dried at low temperatures and converted into Maca Organic Root Powder.
With its intense malty, caramel flavor, this nutty-tasting superfood’s active substances come from the root. Maca root powder contains minerals, and may help to act as an energy enhancer.
The ancient Incan warriors consumed Maca, believing it would provide them with enhanced endurance in battle. The indigenous Incan people revere Maca as their most sacred root plant and they call it the “food of the brain” – believing that it brings them happiness and balance, while alleviating stress. Over the years, its reputation grew and many Peruvians consider it a good source of energy that can help combat fatigue and help to balance the body.
