Ancient Inca warriors are historically known to consume Maca for strength and stamina before battles due to its powerful energy-boosting properties. Maca, popularly regarded as the Peruvian Ginseng, is a cruciferous root vegetable grown in the Andes mountains. Both men and women in Peru have been consuming this superfood for centuries to improve energy, vitality, libido and fertility.
Maca root nourishes and rejuvenates the endocrine (hormonal) system, thus balancing and regulating the production of hormones in the body naturally.
Known as an adaptogen, Maca responds to different bodies' needs individually. Adaptogens increase immunity by gradually improving the overall ability of the entire body to take on challenging and stressful situations. Maca's energizing effect is due both to its rich nutritional content (proteins, vitamins, minerals, etc.) and its adaptogenic effect on the adrenal glands (part of the endocrine system).
Maca also helps alleviate symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, insomnia, fatigue experienced during menopause. Addiitonally, it prevents osteoporosis and anaemia - the high levels of absorbable calcium and magnesium in maca helps improve bone density.
