Maca is a root that grows in the extreme weather conditions of the Peruvian Andes. These roots are grounded into a highly nutritious powder containing many minerals, and was an important source of food for indigenous Peruvians for centuries.
It is an excellent superfood to increase energy levels, promote mental health, and balance the hormonal system. It helps regulate the menstrual cycle and minimize its symptoms. During menopause, Maca can reduce hot flashes, anxiety, and sexual dysfunction, and even combat osteoporosis. Maca is also well known for stimulating libido and spermatogenesis, increasing fertility.
