OVERVIEW:

The maca plant is sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng and is a cruciferous vegetable and therefore related to broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and kale. It comes from a mildly sweet, earthy and pleasant butterscotch flavor root. This adaptogenic root is a great way to boost the nutrient content of smoothies, oatmeal and baked goods, such as bread, pancakes or muffins.

 

Maca root powder is high in carbs and rich in a number of nutrients, including vitamin C, copper, and iron. It is recognized for its ability to increase energy, reduce stress, and even boost libido. It also contains many bioactive plant compounds which may improve your mental well-being and mood by reducing depression and anxiety, especially in menopausal women.
