They say maca is an acquired taste; I absolutely love it, I could just smell it all day. It is a member of the cruciferous family of plants, which includes cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and kale. Maca is a powerful strength and stamina enhancer; like the goji berry it is an adaptogen. It is also a wonderful libido-enhancing superfood.
Maca has been known to improve conditions such as Anaemia, Chronic fatigue, Depression, Stress tension, Menopausal symptoms.
And it contains five times more protein and four times more fibre than our humble potato.
Maca is generally purchased as a dried raw, organic root powder. Add it to smoothies, teas, nut milks, salad dressings, or any beverage you can think of.
Until next time,
Take care beautiful one xo
