Maca (Lepidium Meyenii)
Also known as: Lepidium Meyenii, Maca Root, Peruvian Ginseng
Maca is a root herb similar in appearance to radishes or turnips. Just as much a superfood as an herb, it has many healthful benefits. Maca is an adaptogen that helps the body adapt to stressors. It’s also used to boost energy, support a healthy libido, promote balance for women during menopause, and boost immune health. Research shows it may also benefit reproductive health for men. Maca is widely available in maca powder, maca capsules and maca liquid extract form, making it easy to work into your daily routine however you see fit, whether as a food or beverage additive or to be taken on its own.
