Widely considered a superfood for its health benefits, Maca is a root that has been cultivated in the Peruvian Andes for over 2000 years. It was consumed by the warriors and priests of the Incan empire because of its energizing effects and also fertility raising effects. Maca is a well-known adaptogen like Ashwagandha. Adaptogens increase the body’s resistance and help it to react better when dealing with stress.
