Maca is produced from the root of the Lepidium meyenii plant, a native to South America. Stories of ancient Incan warriors eating maca root before going into battle are easily believable, as this powerful root is now proven to enhance stamina, performance, and power. Maca root contains a high content of adaptogenic compounds, improving hormone balance, metabolism, libido, and more in both men and women. These roots are dried and crushed into a fine powder, which can be encapsulated or added to any number of foods and liquids for a healthy boost in overall well-being. Today’s athletes are confirming what history has to say about this incredible superfood.
Maca is an adaptogen, helping the body adapt to stress, internal and external, physical or emotional. Adaptogens help balance hormones, stabilize moods, boost immune function, increase energy, and modulate many organ systems within the body overall.
Additionally, maca contains higher lipid content than other root crops, giving the body a healthy dose of linolenic, oleic, and palmitic acids – the primary omega fatty acids needed to fight inflammation and support a healthy brain and heart. Maca is also is rich in many trace minerals lacking in the modern diet.
