Maca contains over 50 beneficial phyto-chemicals (non-nutritive plant chemicals that have protective or disease preventive properties), which include hormone precursors and nutrients proven to enhance human health. It is also a rich source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and all the essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and very few foods contain the 8 essential ones that our body does not produce. Thumbs up to the maca plant.
In addition to its impressive nutrient content above, Maca is known for its ability to help enhance strength and endurance. It helps to build energy, muscle and stamina, overcome fatigue, improve mental ability and concentration, and improve mood. Maca is particularly nourishing for the hormonal system and helps balance irregularities. Finally, it stimulates the immune system and blood circulation. All that goodness in a convenient powder form.
I add it to my superfood smoothie. How about you?
