Red Maca is a root vegetable grown high in the Peruvian Andes. It is well known for its ability to help enhance strength and endurance. Maca root is a premier endocrine regulator, and red maca in particular has been shown to have excellent results in supporting a healthy prostate due to its high bioavailable zinc levels. Our red maca is premium quality with a delicate flavor and a light, fluffy texture. And it is an excellent adaptogenic food! Adaptogenic foods are native to extreme environments and have adapted to thrive in extreme conditions; this ability to manage stress is transmitted to our bodies when we consume them. A SUPERfood, indeed!
