Maca powder originates from the Maca root that has been used in cooking in Peru for many thousands of years. In the Maca root there are significant amounts of amino acids, carbohydrates and minerals like calcium, zinc, magnesium and iron. Besides that Maca contains the vitamins B1, B2, B12, C and E. The Maca root is a potato-related root and has been used by Indians in Peru to boost energy levels in the body, strengthen mental health and to balance hormones in the body. Maca also contains compounds that increases stamina and muscle mass and is for this reason often used when training. In some ancient text Maca is referred to as the “Peruvian Viagra”.
The nutritional value in Maca is impressive. Maca contains at least five times more protein then rice and four times more fibre then potatoes.
Maca grows in the Andes Mountains at an altitude of 4000 meters. The taste is similar to parsnip or horseradish. You can mix the Maca powder in smoothies or with water.
