Grown in the Peruvian Andes 

Maca is a root vegetable that only grows at very high altitudes – between 3000 and 4000 metres above sea level – high in the Andean mountains of Peru away from environmental contaminants. The robust root battles extreme conditions and is able to withstand high winds and temperatures as low as -10°C.

Warrior Food

Used for centuries by the indigenous people of the Andes. The Incas found maca so potent that the root was prescribed to warriors in preparation for battles to increase their strength and endurance.

The vitamins and minerals in this powerful Peruvian root will help boost your immune system, stimulate energy, improve fertility, balance hormones, increase libido and provide a nourishing boost.

Energy Enhancer

The minerals and vitamins in our maca root powder help to reduce tiredness and fatigue, as well as contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism which makes maca a great superfood for endurance whilst working out.

Heart Health

Potassium helps maintain normal blood pressure, which aids in the normal arterial and cardiac function not being compromised.

Digestion

Calcium and vitamin c helps the normal function of digestive enzymes and assists in breaking down foods. Digestive enzymes are protein molecules that catalyse the breakdown of large food molecules into smaller molecules to facilitate their absorption by the small intestine.
