Peruvian Maca and its wonderful properties.

Updated: May 22


Organic Peruvian Maca, is sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng. It mainly grows in the Andes of central Peru, in harsh conditions and at very high altitudes — above 13,000 feet (4,000 meters).


Maca is caffeine free, and contributes to overall well-being and it can balance hormone levels, as well as boosting energy, and supporting healthy libido. This versatile adaptogen herb helps the body adapt and deal with different stressors so you can live a well-balanced life everyday.


Maca works very well to reduce all uncomfortable symptoms of menopause and perimenopause including insomnia, mood swings and in particular hot flashes. These benefits come from Maca’s amazing ability to support healthy hormone balance. Maca does not contain hormones, but merely stimulates the body to balance the endocrine system. It works as a mood lifter due to its high nutrient content combined with its energizing properties.


Maca is widely categorized as a superfood; very nutritious, and high in micronutrients, that are needed in small amounts and are essential to the production of the enzymes and hormones in the body. It also has essential vitamins and minerals with the power to strengthen cells and cellular response.


Like other root and cruciferous vegetables, maca is low in fat and contains a lot of fiber, offers plant-based protein and important vitamins and minerals, like calcium, potassium, copper, magnesium, iron, B vitamins, and vitamins C, D, E, Omegas fatty acids like 3, 6 and 9. Maca root also promotes natural antioxidants in the body, such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase.
