Originating from the high mountains of Peru, the Maca fruit possessed powerful energising and body regulation properties. No wonder the ancient Inca warriors consumed it before going into battle!

Its natural butterscotch taste allows it to be easily mixed into cakes or a plain glass of cacao milk (not the unhealthy one for kids!)

Origin of the Maca Root

Originating from the high Andes of Peru, this Maca (also known as Andean Ginseng) is made from the grounded root of Lepidium meyenii. This root has special properties in reducing both physical and psychological fatigue, as well as helping to alleviate hormonal imbalances in both men and women. All in all, it makes one feel more alive and energised.

Legends have it that the ancient Inca warriors consumed maca roots before entering into battle as it provides them with super human strength!

Health benefits of Maca root

The Maca root has been used throughout history to:

  • Increase energy
  • Improve stamina and endurance
  • Reduce chronic fatigue
  • Improve libido, sexual function & fertility
  • Regulate hormone levels and associated symptoms such as mood swings, acne, fatigue, etc.
  • Reduce symptoms of depression thanks to the hormone balancing properties and macamides
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Enhance cerebral performance
  • Improve the circulation
  • Strengthen teeth and bones as well as prevent osteoporosis thanks to its high calcium content
  • Gain muscles thanks to its anabolic properties by balancing our hormone levels.

I'm amazed about this product's properties as they are very much sought after by modern young professionals working busy hours.

Recipe ideas: baking with maca powder

With a sweet taste of vanilla, chocolate and butter, Maca powder is extremely complementary when prepared with cacao powder! Simply mix 1-2 table spoons in your favourite muffin mix, sponge cake dough, glass of milk, yogurt, soy milk, almond milk and protein shake.

My personal favourite: A powerful smoothie consisting of 1 cup of soy milk, 1 banana, 1 tablespoon Maca root powder, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and a hint of maple syrup. Perfect as a pre-workout cocktail for an intense workout regimen!
