Maca is grown at high elevations in the Andes region of central Peru. It is a complex, nutrient-dense whole food source of vitamins, amino acids, plant sterols, essential minerals and essential fatty acids.
It has been used for centuries by indigenous Peruvians as a food source, as well as for increasing stamina and energy.
Maca powder can be blended into smoothies, drinks, baked goods, chocolates and cereal. It can also be taken as a supplement in capsule form.
