MacaLepidium Meyenii, is the root of a vegetable native to the Andes region of Peru. Also known as "Peruvian Ginseng", Maca is a plant-based superfood easy to add into your everyday routine.

Maca root has a high nutritional value and is especially rich in calcium and potassium. It contains 19 amino acids and fatty acids including palmitic, oleic and linoleic acids. It also contains zinc, iron, copper, iodine and manganese and selenium among its constituents.

One of its chemical constituents is p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, which has been credited to be responsible for maca’s aphrodisiac reputation. Maca has also been found to be beneficial to balance hormone levels, boost energy, for hot flashes in menopause, and may support hormonal and reproductive health. Maca has also been classified as an adaptogen herb: it helps the body to adapt and deal with different stressors so you can live a well-balanced life.
