Native to the Andes of Peru, maca is a root vegetable that has stood the test of time. It looks like a radish, and it’s been used for centuries in Traditional Medicine as a way to promote sexual wellbeing, energy, and stamina.*1 These small but mighty root veggies are harvested, and then made into a powder or capsules for easy consumption.
Maca has a nutty, earthy taste with a hint of butterscotch, making it a nice addition to oatmeal, cereals, smoothies, and drinks. Just be sure to pick a maca powder that’sgelatinized, which means it’s been cooked down, and easier to digest.
