QUICK OVERVIEW

Maca is an amazing superfood grown high in the andes.  It has been consumed for centuries, originally by Incan warriors to gain strength and endurance before battle.  With a complex flavor with hints of butterscotch, maca is part of the rarest food group on the planet, adaptogens.  This class of food does something amazing inside your body.
 
Adaptogens have "double directional" activity.  In other words, maca helps to strengthen weak and underperforming organs/tissues and helps to calm down overactive ones that may contribute to hormonal imbalance or energy highs and lows.

World Health Club sells 2 kinds of maca, raw and gelatinized. The gelatinized maca has been slightly processed to remove some of the starch and leave more of the nutritious material behind containing the amino acids, minerals and phytochemicals.  Raw or gelatinized, maca is an amazing food that mixes well with any flavor of health smoothie.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

*Gelatinized Maca is raw maca that has some of the starches removed to concentrate the power of the maca.  This bag contains 90 conservative servings or 60 liberal servings.

Maca (ma-kuh)

a herbaceous plant native to the high Andes of Bolivia and Peru. It is grown for its fleshy hypocotyl, which is used as a root vegetable and a medicinal herb.

Incan Strength

The root of the maca plant has been used in indigenous Andean cultures as a source of nourishment and healing for many millenniums. A radish-like root, maca is indigenous to the mountainous and ragged terrain of the Peruvian highlands. Although its foliage may be small and unassuming, the harvested root of the maca plant was traditionally used by Incan warriors in preparation for difficult expositions and battles, and was consumed to increase stamina and energy. So esteemed was this special root, that it later became used as a form of currency by the Spaniards -- a practice which still carries on in some areas of Peru even today. Enjoying a massive resurgence in use, maca continues to be one of the most appreciated superfoods on the market.

The Power of Maca

Maca has long been used to increase stamina, boost libido, and combat fatigue for good reasons. The root is a superb adaptogen, as it enables the body to more easily adapt to and regulate stress factors imposed upon it. Studies have also identified four alkaloids present in maca, which are known to nourish the endocrine system (the system in the body which is responsible for the production and maintenance of hormones). Maca root is a nutrient-dense whole food, contains vitamins, plant sterols, many essential minerals, amino acids and healthy fats. This is a particularly powerful and balanced food for athletes and those who are looking to combat stress or increase stamina.

Energy Food

Maca is a very potent food, and just a little maca sprinkled into recipes turns any meal into a supermeal. With an earthy taste that is mildly nutty with a hint of butterscotch, maca is easily blended into superfood smoothies, various milks, chocolates, or mixed into flour for dessert recipes. Alternately, use maca straight by taking in a capsule form, and enjoy its benefits anytime and anywhere.
