ORGANIC MACA ROOT POWDER
One of the first superfoods in human history, maca is a yellow cruciferous vegetable that belongs to the same family as cabbage and broccoli. Maca root powder is derived from the fleshy, radish-like taproot of the Lepidium meyenii plant. Sometimes referred to as “Peruvian ginseng,” this remarkable root crop is capable of growing in harsh terrain, high in the Andean Mountains, at altitudes of 8,000 to 14,000 feet.
Maca is also known as the “Incan superfood” due to its robust phytonutrient content and health-promoting properties. For over 3,000 years, the ancient Peruvians used maca root for both nutritional and medicinal purposes. Today, this potent superfood is widely consumed to support natural strength, endurance and stamina.
MACA POSSESSES POWERFUL ADAPTOGENIC PROPERTIES**
Adaptogens are natural substances, such as herbs, that help the body naturally adapt to various stressors. They can also help your body achieve homeostasis or balance. One good example of a powerful adaptogenic herb is maca.
According to a study published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, maca root has powerful adaptogenic properties that help promote a healthy stress response. These properties likely stem from maca root’s high levels of vitamins and unique alkaloids.
Maca root can also help your body handle stressful situations better by nourishing your adrenal glands. As a potent adaptogen, maca root supports a healthy immune system on top of clearing your mind and helping you achieve inner focus.
A RICH SOURCE OF ANTIOXIDANTS**
A 2014 study that appeared in the journal Carbohydrate Polymers found that the polysaccharides in maca root extract have high antioxidant activity. Maca root also contains other antioxidants, such as phenols, flavonoids, glucosinolates and vitamins C and E, and can even support your body's production of natural antioxidants like superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione. By regularly consuming antioxidant-rich superfoods like maca root powder, you can help protect your cells from oxidative stress and promote a healthy immune system.

It also contains 18 amino acids and 20 fatty acids, including linoleic acid, palmitic acid and oleic acid.

Maca is an herb well-known for supporting optimal reproductive health in both men and women. Even the Native Peruvians used maca root powder as a natural aphrodisiac. It is believed that maca owes its fertility-supporting properties to the compound, p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, which can only be found in maca.

WHY CHOOSE GROOVY BEE

Hence, you'll find high levels of these toxic contaminants in many low-quality maca products grown in contaminated soil.
