SCIENTIFIC NAME : LEPIDIUM MEYENII
Maca mainly grows in the Andes of central Peru, in harsh conditions and at very high altitudes: above 4,000 meters. It has a similar appearance and size as radishes with green tops and roots that range in color from yellow to purple and black and is completely gluten-free. Maca is a natural source of healing nutrition and contains a high value of proteins, fibers, and vitamins not to mention that it has nearly ALL the existing amino acids: 18 out of 20!
As if it wasn’t enough, it’s also considered an “adaptogen,” a name given to certain herbs, plants and natural substances that help the body naturally adapt to stressors like a busy schedule, demanding job or illness. Not only that, but maca provides a host of important micronutrients and is jam-packed with antioxidants, and it has been shown to improve sexual health, balance hormone levels, and improve energy, mood, and memory.
