Root of Strength & Balance
Spanish conquistadors recorded in their journals that when they arrived at the puna of Junin in Peru, the babies were well-fed and adults were tall, attributing these characteristics to the diet of maca. The Quechua Indians in the central highlands of Peru continue to consider maca a highly nutritious food with a range of physical benefits and they include it as a regular staple in their diet. Navitas Naturals Maca Powder is loaded with nutritious vitamins, minerals, amino acids and plant sterols, including vitamins B1, B2, B, C, D, E, iron, potassium, copper, magnesium, selenium, phosphorous and calcium. It's a fiber-rich food and a good source of plant protein (about ten percent). Maca root is also a source of fatty acids, and it contains four unique alkaloids (Macaina 1, 2, 3 and 4).
