Maca Powder | Organic
Maca is known as the superfood of the South American Inca and it has been used for over 2000 years to promote physical and mental vitality in humans and animals. It is a good source of healthy carbohydrates, it has low-fat content, and it contains a lot of fiber in addition to the many vitamins and minerals.
Yellow maca, also called Cream Maca, does much for hormone health and overall balance. The proteins in yellow Maca are bioavailable, which means the body is better at absorbing them than proteins that are less so.
Vegans and other non-meat eaters will find yellow Maca powder beneficial for reaching their daily protein requirements.
Besides being a good source of protein, yellow Maca also has very high amounts of vitamins and nutrients, such as amino acids and free fatty acids, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and C, iron, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and calcium. Also, yellow maca is thought to be the most beneficial for improving mood and alleviating stress because of its positive effects on hormonal balance, especially for women.
Maca has been shown to:
increase fertility, improve muscle growth, boost stamina, alleviate some of the symptoms of menopause, raise energy levels, improve prostate health, build bone density, ease symptoms of depression, enhance libido, and stabilize hormone levels.
Also, the compounds within the root give the body what it needs to handle daily stressors better and lower cortisol levels, which can exacerbate the effects of aging.
