Black Maca – Peruvian Root Powder
Legend has it that Inca warriors used to eat maca before going into battle – they believed it gave them invincible strength and stamina. Black maca is the rarest of the maca roots with antioxidant-rich black colour pigments found primarily in the skin of the roots.
Black maca provides excellent support for your body pre- and post-exercise. Blend into smoothies, hot chocolate, desserts, snack bars and sweet treats. Maca has an incredible synergistic effect when combined with raw cacao, so add it into your chocolate creations. Start with 1 tsp a day, and gradually move up to 8 tsp or more.
Maca grows high up in the Peruvian Andes mountains where the extremely mineral rich soils account for it high levels of energy, protein, minerals and dietary fibre.
