Bio Maca, Powder
A root, dubbed "Peruvian ginseng", that fills you with life energy and provides hormonal balance.
Maca is an extraordinary plant that grows at an altitude of 3800 m in extreme acid volcanic soil rich in minerals and other important active nutrients. It has been discovered and used in everyday diet by the Inca who also gave it its name. Fresh or dried maca root has been used in Peru for centuries, and it represents an important part of local cuisine. Maca is rich in minerals, vitamins, essential amino acids (it contains nineteen out of twenty amino acids), unsaturated fats and other substances important to our organism. It contains calcium, selenium, zinc, sodium, iron, potassium, magnesium, silicon, iodine, phosphorus, manganese, copper, vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, and D3, unsaturated fats omega-3, -6, and -9, and many active substances that have positive impacts on our body (saponins, sterols, tannins, and alkaloids).
Numerous researchers have proven the influence of maca to the endocrine system, in both men and women. It has positive effects on the hypothalamic-adenohypophyseal axis and adrenals, it regulates the function of the thyroid and parathyroid glands, encourages human gonads functions, and improves immune system.
Picked and dried in a traditional way, carefully prepared powdered Bio Maca preserves all its natural nutrients and ensures high quality of the product. Due to its strictly controlled harvesting method, Bio Maca is a certified organic product.
Our Bio Maca product contains roots of gold, red and black maca which have different flavours. The mixture of all three provides a full and unique flavour to the product. The gold maca tastes sweet and is the most widely used and the Peruvians’ favourite; the red maca has a mild and tender flavour, and the black maca with its bittersweet flavour contributes the highest energy value.
