Maca has been cultivated in Peru for 2000 years.

Maca has a high mineral content, in particular iron, potassium and calcium. Iron contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, normal oxygen transport in the body and normal function of the immune system.

Potassium contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system; normal muscle function, and the maintenance of normal blood pressure, while calcium contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, normal energy-yielding metabolism and muscle function.

Maca is also a source of Zinc, which contributes to the normal functioning of a range of processes, including normal fertility and reproduction; normal testosterone levels in the blood, and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

It is thought that the minerals found in these cereal grasses classifies them as alkaline foods, allowing them to counteract acidity in the body.

Maca also contains prostaglandins – messenger molecules which act like hormones to mediate physiological effects within cells, and plant sterols. Chemical analysis has also identified biologically active aromatic isothiocyanates.

Can be added to smoothies.
