Maca powder is great for you and is made from an adaptogen

There's a good chance you've never heard of maca. Maca is a tuber that originates from Peru and has been cultivated there for over 2,600 years. Maca is available as a powder, which comes from the plant's roots. After being harvested, it is boiled, dried and ground up. Its colour ranges from yellow through to red, purple or black and it has a slightly sweet taste that somewhat resembles butterscotch.

The health benefits of the adaptogen, maca

Maca is packed with good things: full of fibre and protein, vitamins (B1, B2, C and E), minerals and trace elements as well as fatty acids and sterols that bolster your resistance. Maca is an adaptogen, which means that it regulates your hormone levels, your blood sugar levels and your blood pressure.

This is exactly why it is so powerful, as it reinforces your body's adaptive capacity. An adaptogen is especially beneficial when faced with stress or situations where you body is out of balance. Thanks in part to this, maca is an excellent supplement for women during menopause when the hormones are fluctuating dramatically.
