MACA ROOT POWDER
Sometimes referred to as “Peruvian ginseng,” maca is a yellow cruciferous vegetable in the same family as cabbage and broccoli. For over 3,000 years, the ancient Native Peruvians utilized maca root for both nutritional and medicinal purposes. They even used it as a form of currency in pre-Incan times. By the time the Incas reigned over the Andes region, only the royal court and the imperial family had access to this South American root.
Maca root powder is derived from the edible roots of the Lepidium meyenii plant. When dried and ground into a fine powder, it can be added to hot beverages and baked desserts to give them a boost in both flavor and nutrients. Today this potent superfood is widely consumed to enhance natural strength, endurance, and stamina.

Why choose Groovy Bee

Many products that claim to be "safe" are actually tainted with lead and other heavy metals that can endanger your well-being.
