Country of origin: Peru
Maca is a native Peruvian root vegetable that has been used for centuries to promote health and balance hormone levels, helping women with conditions like PMS, PCOS and oestrogen dominance, as well as improve fertility, libido and stress management.
It packs high levels of iron and iodine to promote healthy cells and to help keep your metabolism on track. Its big doses of potassium help digestion and make muscles happy. Maca is also rich in calcium, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.
A traditional whole food of the Incans, Maca is a root vegetable from the Brassicas (cruciferous) family.
