Native to the Peruvian Andes, the maca plant has been cultivated for thousands of years for nutritional and medicinal purposes.
Boasting essential nutrients, minerals and vitamins, it’s dubbed as the ‘Superfood of the Andes’, because according to legend, Incan warriors would consume maca to increase their fighting spirit before charging into battle.
It’s packed with vitamin C, vitamin B6, riboflavin and iron, which help to reduce tiredness and fatigue* – helping to power you through your day.
