Maca powder comes from a root vegetable that grows in the Andes mountains of Peru. Maca powder is full of vitamins, minerals and protein, containing many of the essential amino acids, and is particularly rich in calcium and magnesium.
Maca powder is very popular among both men and women. Maca powder contains plant sterols, the natural form of steroids, and is particularly popular amongst supplement savvy athletes to improve energy levels without over stimulating their body.
In Peru, Maca powder is considered a staple part of the diet: the potato like tuber can be baked, or the ground up powder is added to meals, and the Peruvians have been using it as an energy enhancer for over 2000 years. No other food plant in the world survives at such high altitudes - up to 14,000 feet above sea level!
