Our organic raw Maca grows 14,000 feet high in the Peruvian Andes mountains. Maca has been used for thousands of years by the Incans and was known as warrior food since it gave the men energy to prevail in their physical pursuits. It has been used as an aphrodisiac and in husbandry since it boosts libido and physical stamina in both men and women, it's known to increase fertility in women and sperm count in men. It's know as South American Ginseng. Athletes love it for the increased stamina and endurance it gives them.
Maca does more than just boost libido, it's know as an adaptogen which nourishes the entire endocrine system with over 65 phytonutrients. An adaptogen is something that nourishes the body so it can adapt to stress instead of being depleted by it. Maca supports the adrenals and nourishes the pituitary to regulate hormones within the system. Women have had remarkable results in reducing hot flashes with regular use of maca.
Add 2 teaspoons of maca to your favorite smoothie or recipe. We love it with chocolate which is why we love our Maca Sqarze!
