SunFood Raw Organic Maca Powder Description
Maca is a root vegetable grown in the Peruvian Andes. It was sacred to the Incas and has been used as a food and medicine in South America for centuries. As a powerful adaptogen, maca has a reputation for balancing hormones and increasing fertility and libido in both men and women. It is well known for its ability to help enhance strength and endurance. In fact, Incan warriors would often consume maca before long journeys and battles. Today's athletes are confirming what history has to say about this incredible superfood.
Our maca is grown at high elevations in areas untouched by pollution where it is sun-dried & low-temperature processed into a fine powder. Inferior maca products are grown at lower elevations and processed at higher temperatures. Sunfood maca powder has a unique nutty flavor that goes well with sweet or savory dishes.
Suggested Use: Add 1-2 teaspoon of maca powder to smoothies, or try in your favorite recipe!
