Maca is a plant which grows naturally at high-altitude, in the Peruvian Andes. For many centuries it has been a central part of local diets in Peru and Bolivia, where almost every part of the plant is used. Also known as “Peruvian Ginseng”, Maca is a nutrition-packed root vegetable, flourishing in environments often 4000m above sea level. Plants at this harsh altitude have to take in as many nutrients from the ground as possible to survive, hence why Sevenhills Wholefoods source this product for its impressive nutritional content. Maca Root Powder contains a wide range of amino acids in its protein, plus carbohydrates and fibre. A complete protein, Maca provides 19 amino acids, 4 different alkaloids, 20 different fatty acids, an abundance of Calcium and an assortment of vitamins including C, E, B1 and B2. In addition to Maca’s antioxidant content, keeping the body’s cells free from oxidative stress damage, the Root Powder also has been known to keep our skin, nervous and immune systems, and psychological function healthy, as well as helping to keep tiredness and fatigue at bay. We recommend adding 1-2 teaspoons of powder to milk, juice or smoothies, or alternatively sprinkle on to food within a healthy, balanced diet.
