Maca is an energising and revitalising superfood of the Incas. Jam packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and all the essential amino acids. The plant grows at 4,000m above sea level in the Andean district of Junin by the Pumpush people who have been cultivating and consuming Maca as a staple food for thousands of years. It contains unique alkaloids, which help stimulate the master glands that in turn may help optimise and balance the entire endocrine system. Maca is rich in vitamin B12 and protein, which is very helpful for vegans. It also keeps you healthy by providing vitamins B1, B2, B12, C and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.
