Maca, also known as Peruvian Ginseng, is the superfood of one of the oldest, most advanced civilizations on earth- the Incas. It has been cultivated for 2000 years in the high plateaus of the Andes mountains in Peru, and was once given to Imperial Inca warriors before battle. OHP_Maca_Powder_400gOrganika®’s Maca powder is made exclusively from the yellow Maca root, most used by Peruvians in daily life. Maca is a nutrient dense, adaptogenic, cruciferous root. Adaptogens are a biological substance found in rare plants and herbs that help the body adapt to change and stress. In fact, repeated use of Maca is like exercising- the body not only adapts, but becomes stronger. It’s traditional use is as a natural energizer, stress- reliever, and aphrodisiac; it nurtures, restores, and enhances stamina.
