Maca powder is ground from the maca plant, which has grown in Peru for thousands of years. The ancient root may help with energy, hormones, mood, fertility, and libido.
Maca has a predominantly earthy, nutty taste with hints of malt and caramel.
From a nutritional perspective, maca root is a good source of carbs and protein, as well as a fair source of fibre and iron. Maca is also higher in a number of nutrients including over 20 amino acids, vitamin B, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium and copper, just to name a few.
