Maca is an adaptogen which helps the body to cope when under stressful situations and brings the body back into balance. It is nutrient rich, containing amino acids, minerals such as calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and zinc, certain vitamins such as B1, B2 and C, as well as iodine and several essential fatty acids. Maca is a plant that is very beneficial for strengthening the body. It has been taken for thousands of years in the high altitude climate of Peru to support strength, stamina and vitality, and can help to nourish our adrenals and endocrine system, as well as containing nutrients which help to balance hormone production.
Maca has been used for generations in South America and is mostly consumed cooked, and often fermented into a drink called maca chichi. Highly prized in traditional Peruvian culture, Maca was once considered sacred in it’s fermented form. It was used in ceremony to bring power and health to all those that consumed it. We use gelatinized maca which we ferment into a much more nutrient rich and potent form. We use 3 different types of maca- yellow, red and black- to make up our organic herbal supplements, and combine with Amazonian Camu Camu berry for a good source of natural vitamin C.
Give this smoothie a go and get your morning off to a great start.
