Maca is a cruciferous vegetable that’s grown in the Andes Mountains of Peru and has been cultivated for thousands of years for its medicinal properties. This plant is packed with vitamins and minerals and contains very high levels of vitamin C, iron and copper. Maca is also loaded with protein, fiber, antioxidants and amino acids (including the 8 essential ones), so it’s no wonder that it’s considered a superfood. On top of that, maca is also an adaptogen since it naturally helps the body adapt to surrounding stressors; another reason why it’s such a powerful supplement.
