What is Maca Root?
Maca Root has been used traditionally as a natural alternative for centuries. Maca Root has been harvested in Peru for over 3000 years and is found in the Andes Mountains. It is also used as an adaptogen to help reduce stress. Adaptogens are herbal remedies that can help with physical, chemical and environmental stress.
Maca is often considered the ‘superfood of the Andes’. It is popular amongst the indigenous population of the Peruvian Andes. Cultivated in spring, Maca is a small root vegetable from the maca plant grown at altitudes over 3500m. Maca is also rich in alkaloids, saponins and tannins.
Traditionally integrated in the nutrition of natives, the maca root has evolved to a modern day ‘superfood’.
