Maca powder comes from a root vegetable that grows in the Andes mountains of Peru. No other food plant in the world survives at such high altitudes - up to 14,000 feet above sea level!
In Peru it is considered a staple part of the diet: the potato-like tuber can be baked, or the ground-up powder is added to meals, and the Peruvians have been using it as an energy enhancer for over 2,000 years.
Like Aloe vera, maca is an adaptogen and can be used without any harmful side effects.
Maca is full of minerals, vitamins, and protein, containing many of the essential amino acids, and particularly rich in calcium and magnesium.
Maca is very popular among both men and women. It contains plant sterols, the natural form of steroids
