Maca is an herbaceous plant native to the high Andean Mountains of Bolivia and Peru. It is one of the only food plants in the world able to thrive at such a high altitude. Maca, and more specifically the root of the plant, has a long history as a superfood. The maca root was prized throughout the Inca empire for its adaptogenic-like qualities that enable it to nourish and balance the body’s delicate endocrine system, and to help cope with stress. It also energizes naturally, without the jitters and crashes of caffeine, and it can aid in reproductive function, helping to balance hormones and increase fertility. Navitas Naturals Maca Powder is the natural form of this special root.
The rarified air and organic soil produces a powerhouse of nutrition building both body and mind. Maca root is a nutritional storehouse of minerals, vitamins and fiber including vitamin C, proteins, and tannins. Maca powder is also rich in quality carbohydrates and alkaloids which when combined together can form the basis for sustainable energy and potency.
