Maca root is a legendary Peruvian staple food prized for its superior nutritional value and for its positive effects on mood, energy, fertility and libido-according to both modern in vitvo clinical trials and routine maca eaters across The Americas.
Introduced to the world food stage in the late 1980s, maca's centuries-old journey of nutritional, cultural, and socio-economic importance in Peru has been revived by scientific nutritional analysis and favourable findings. Enough research to help maca shed its 'fringe food' image and take its rightful place as a super food of the world.
In Peruvian cuisine, it's common for maca root to be prepared and eaten like a potato; but here in Canada, we enjoy maca in a gently dried, finely milled powder form; expertly prepared for safe consumption and maximum nutritional value. To avoid eating a poor quality maca that might also make you sick, it's important to always know your maca brand well for maximum food safety, after-prep nutritional content, and nutrient bio-availability since not all maca powders are created equal.
