A staple food in Peru, Maca is renowned as a nutrient dense food that delivers natural energy support and may also support cognitive health. Maca is also traditionally used to support normal female and male sexual function.
Domesticated by the Incas 2,000 years ago as a nutrient dense food, Maca continues to be harvested today by local Peruvian peoples. Growing well in the extremely harsh conditions of the Andes, Maca is a low growing, small tuber like root. It is a staple food of the Peruvians that offers proteins, sugars, starches, vitamins, and essential nutrients.
