Maca root has been used by native Indians in Peru as a vital ingredient to health for thousands of years. It grows in the mountains of Peru at high altitudes of 7,000 to 11,000 feet, making it the highest altitude growing plant in the world. Chemically Maca root contains significant amounts of amino acids, carbohydrates, and minerals including calcium, phosphorous, zinc, magnesium, iron, as well as vitamins B1, B2, B12, C , E. and a number of glycosides. Nutritionally it’s 10% protein and 60% carbohydrates and fatty acids.
Maca root contains 18 of the 20 essential amino acids which are crucial for synthesizing protein, but which are also important for fighting disease, moving oxygen through the body, growing healthy hair and nails and alleviating symptoms of anxiety and depression. It’s an adaptogenic herb, great for balancing hormones and achieving balance in the body.
Maca has a tonic effect on the biochemistry of the body. Chief among these effects is the enhancement of the endocrine function.
Maca increases energy and stamina and gives a feeling of mental clarity and general well-being. We suggest adding a teaspoon to your cacao, mesquite,vanilla powder, banana smoothies.
