About Organic Red Maca Powder
Red Maca Powder is native to the Peruvian central Andes, and used from pre Incan times for both nutritional and medicinal purposes. Maca is a tuberous root vegetable resembling a turnip which is naturally processed into a flour-like powder. It is richly endowed with essential nutrients, renowned for its reputed fertility enhancing properties and considered to be beneficial for hormonal balancing. Sprinkle liberally on muesli, in smoothies or add to other raw / home cooking recipes. Red maca powder is made purely from the red maca root. This means that it is stronger and a purer powder.
Traditionally, Maca is taken in powdered form, a little like flour. Make muffins or bread and replace a couple of tablespoons of flour with Maca. Maca can be sprinkled over cereal, porridge or muesli, mixed into yoghurts and smoothies or simply try stirring it into soups or drinks. Three or more grams of Maca per day are usually recommended.
