The Magic of Maca

As a daily food, Maca is a nutritional superfood powerhouse. The peoples of the central Andes attribute their ability to work vigorously at high altitudes and their renowned strength and vitality to eating maca. Maca has often been touted as Peruvian ginseng, owing to the root’s traditional uses for fertility, libido, mental and physical energy, and conditions of menopause, among others. Peruvians attest that it works equally well for both men and women, especially in terms of increased libido and fertility. Its nutrient-rich profile gives maca its broad-based healing or adaptogenic properties. Adaptogens, like Chinese ginseng and Peruvian maca, are hailed for their ability to reduce the effects stress hormones can have on the body. Adaptogens support and rejuvenate overwhelmed, tired adrenal glands, providing more energy, stamina, clarity of mind and an ability to handle stress. With this superfood, it is best to begin with a conservative amount and work up slowly until one notices an increase in energy, usually occurring around 1- 3 teaspoonfuls taken daily. It may take a few weeks to reach the effective dose.
