“The Power of Maca – Peruvian Superfood”

The Power of Maca

I recently read the book “The Power of Maca” by Lorrie Ingram (www.lorrieingram.com).  Although I have known about Maca for a while now I was surprised at how little I actually knew about this amazing superfood from Peru.

 What is Maca?

Maca is a cruciferous vegetable that grows in high altitudes in Peru. Often compared to a turnip or radish, Maca is a small root vegetable that packs a whole lot of punch.  Containing an impressive nutrient content of amino acids, minerals, sterols, 20 fatty acids as well as vitamins A, B1, B2, B3 B12, C, D and E and much more, Maca just might be THE most powerful superfood on the planet!

Forms of Maca

Traditionally Maca is a food that is part of everyday life in Peru.  It is used in soups and stews, ground and added to baked goods, made into tea as well as brewed in alcoholic beverages. Maca is enjoyed by all the ages and is considered a household staple. Since Maca cannot be grown in Canada due to the unique growing conditions required, we can get Maca in capsule, powder and liquid forms.  Maca is definitely increasing in popularity in Canada as people continue to learn and reap its amazing healing benefits.

 Healing Power of Maca

Due to Maca’s nutrient dense composition, it boasts many health benefits for both men and women including:

  • Improve libido
  • Increase Energy
  • Enhance sexual stimulation
  • Assist to overcome depression
  • Immune Booster
  • Hormone Balancer – Help with symptoms of PMS and Menopause
  • Decrease stress and anxiety
  • Enhance Fertility
  • Improve Concentration

Another wonderful thing about Maca is that it is a food so you needn’t be concerned about taking it with other supplements or medications.

Brad King’s Ultimate Maca Energy capsules, powder and liquid can be purchased at your local health food store. This line is superior in the fact that the Maca is ethically farmed, sun dried, free of common allergens and non-GMO.   To quote Lorrie’s book: “As my dear friend always says; If you do not take time to care for your health now, then you better make time to be sick later.” 

So what are you waiting for?  Start today and discover for yourself the amazing powers of Maca – You’re worth it!!
