Info: 150g Jar of Powder
A root vegetable (somewhat akin to radishes) which grows in high elevations in central Peru (where it has to be very hardy to survive), Maca is becoming increasingly popular, not only as a means of promoting energy and alertness levels, but also for a variety of hormonal effects. Rich in antioxidants and certain minerals (especially iron), it is considered to be an adaptogen, which can not only have an energizing effect but may also be able to reduce the effects of stress hormones. This premium wholefood version comes in a powder which can be easily incorporated into your diet in a number of ways.
Fermented Organic Yellow Maca powder.
The Organically Certified Maca in this vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO product was grown 12,000 feet above sea level on the Junín Plateau in Peru; harvested with Fair Trade and Socially Responsible methods; and initially prepared using the traditional sun-drying method to keep it pure and to preserve its nutrients. Then it was fermented to make it easier to digest, quicker to absorb, and richer in nutrients.
Mix 2 teaspoons (8.4 grams) into a hot or cold beverage (including juice blends or smoothies), or add it to your meals.* Store in a cool, dry place.
Fermented maca has a light, nutty flavour with just a hint of bitterness and no discernible sweetness. Some easy, delicious ways to consume it as a food include: stirring a teaspoonful of it into a bowl of cereal, soup, or pudding; or adding a teaspoon into a butter-coffee or hot chocolate drink.
