The Incredible Benefits of Maca


Peruvian superfood Maca root has been popping up everywhere. Even in our most popular smoothie “The Sh*t”, but why? It's simple - The incredible benefits. Firstly, Maca is an adaptogen, a food that aids the body in adapting to stress caused by internal imbalances or external factors. 

Because of these properties, Maca can be used for:
-improving sexual function like boosting libido and increasing endurance,
-alleviating menstrual cramps, hot flashes, mood swings and other symptoms relating to women’s health,
-improving the look and feel of the skin,
-mood balancing

In addition to all of these amazing benefits, Maca is also rich in vitamins and minerals like vitamins B,C, and E, calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and amino acids but you should avoid maca if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
