Maca: boosting your energy!

Updated: Jul 24, 2020

One of the seven wonder foods of Peru, Maca has been traditionally consumed as a root vegetable in the Andean region. Its energising, sexual function and fertility benefits suit both men and women. You will find easily this marvellous food as a supplement in capsules or powder. It is cultivated exclusively at an altitude of 4000-4500 meters in the Peruvian Central Andes around the Lake Junin. There's been a large research done on lab supporting the traditional use by humans living in the Andes. Overall, scientific evidence shows that Maca has nutritional, energising and fertility-enhancing properties. It improves sexual dysfunction, osteoporosis, memory and learning and protects skin against ultraviolet radiation. Something not to be missed heading the summer. Is also the perfect allied to fight Asthenia or Spring fatigue.
