Navitas Naturals - Maca Power Powder - 7.1 oz. (200g)
Maca is a root vegetable that is rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Peruvians have used Maca for generations to enhance general health, increase energy and stamina, and to help treat the symptoms of menopause and low libido. It is believed Maca achieves this by regulating the body's glandular function and promoting hormonal balance in both men and women.
Gelatinization is an extrusion process that removes the starch from Maca, making a more concentrated powder, with more active ingredients per unit, that is easier for the body to digest and absorb.
