What’s so good about Maca? Our Maca contains a spectrum of vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and Vitamin C plus a high amino acid profile. It is an ancient superfood adaptogen (which means it adapts to your body’s needs) and can support adrenal function, increase energy and stamina (great for althetes) and reduce stress.
How is Maca powder made? Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a root vegetable from the broccoli family that looks similar to a turnip. The root is harvested, washed, ground, dried (slow at low temperatures) and then milled into a fine powder.
How do I use Maca? Add a heap teaspoon to your smoothies for a nutrient boost. Add to your baking or raw treats - bliss balls or brownies
What does Maca powder taste like? Given that Maca is a root – it has an earthy taste. Some describe it as nutty with a slightly bitter note. The fresher your Maca the better it tastes. Again, we only use the freshest, best quality Maca grown and harvested in Peru!
