Maca has been traditionally used for centuries as a food source and as a general energy tonic. Maca may help to support a healthy reproductive life for both men and women. For thousands of years, the Peruvians and Incas used maca root for its healing and nourishing powers. Today, maca powder is one of the world’s most popular, versatile and nutrient-rich superfoods. A tuber, much like the potato, maca is rich in calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. It’s commonly referred to as Peruvian ginseng and is used to support reproductive hormones and libido, as well as all-around energy.
