Raw, organic Red Maca root powder from Peru
Since the Food Movement began bringing this potent superfood to the US, it has become one of the most popular varieties of Maca root - also known as "Brazilian Ginseng".
Red Maca root is grown organically in the Andes Mountains at heights of 13,000 feet. It belongs to the mustard family and has been used for thousands of years by natives of central Peru.
Red Maca root has been shown to have a balancing effect on the human endocrine system, through improved hormone balance. This may be the reason so much research has been done to assess Red Maca root’s role in the balancing the prostate, as well as treat natural body conditions such as menopause and premenstrual syndrome. *
Available from the Food Movement in raw powder, the Red Maca root in its raw, organic form is the strongest Maca source for phytonutrients such as alkaloids, tannins and saponins.. Red Maca root may be beneficial for men seeking prostate support, women seeking increased fertility and libido and men and women seeking improved bone density, as referenced in 2010 research conducted at the Universidad Peruana.
