|What is maca?|
Maca is a root from Peru. It looks like a little turnip or radish. Its Latin name is Lepidium Peruvianum Chacon, but you don't have to remember that! It's also known as Peruvian ginseng, Brazilian ginseng or Amazon ginseng, but isn't related to ginseng at all.
Our Maca comes dried and ground into a powder and is not cooked. It is non-toxic and contains no dangerous side-effects or withdrawal symptoms.
What's so special about maca?
It is so full of wonderful nutrition, that once you start eating it, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner! Maca contains high amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and all the essential amino acids. In fact, it has about 10% bioavailable calcium and about 12-14% bioavailable protein. It contains nearly 60 phytochemicals. It's an adaptogen so it "adapts" to your body's metabolism, working with your body on to repairs. This little unsuspecting root can help you achieve your optimal level of health and energy.
Natural physicians and healers such as Dr Gabriel Cousens MD use and recommend Maca to their clients.
