Sunfood Superfood Red Maca Ancient Peruvian Superfood - 8 oz (227 g)

Sunfood Superfood Red Maca Ancient Peruvian Superfood is a superfood-food-herb with an outstanding ability to increase energy, endurance and strength. Sunfood Superfood Red Maca Ancient Peruvian Superfood is a favorite of raw-foodists, vegetarians, adventurers, extreme athletes, dessert chefs and food alchemists. Sunfood Superfood Red Maca Ancient Peruvian Superfood is a member of the cruciferous family of plants. Sunfood Superfood Red Maca Ancient Peruvian Superfood is a distant relative of the common radish. The maca plant produces leaves that grow close to the ground and the plant produces a small, off-white flower typical to the cruciferous family. The main part of interest for this plant, however, is the radish-like tuberous root.

Why Red Maca?

Sunfood Superfood Red Maca Ancient Peruvian Superfood has the same nutritional profile and all of the same beneficial properties as regular (white, yellow or black) maca, but it appears that phytochemical analyses showed red maca to have greater amounts of the compounds responsible for antioxidant and antitumor activity than other types of maca. This has implications for men and women of any age who are looking to maintain their vitality and energy.

Archeological evidence has been found, that maca was domesticated over 2,000 years ago by the predecessors of the Incan people. Even today, for many indigenous inhabitants of the Andes, Maca is still one of the most vital and valuable of all commodities. The maca root has been used over the ages for its nutritional and herbal qualities. Once harvested, the maca root was traditionally dried, then powdered. Once powdered it was either eaten or put into sacs and traded for other commodities. Oftentimes cacao nibs and beans (raw chocolate) would come up the Andes from the jungle and in exchange maca would go down from the Andes into the jungle. These two foods (maca and cacao) have a unique affinity and history which is evident when one tries eating them together. Both cacao and maca were used as money by ancient indigenous peoples.

Maca's Remarkable Reputation

Maca's reputation as a powerful strength and stamina enhancer as well as libido-enhancing food-herb stretches back into prehistory. Maca, like goji berries and ginseng, is a powerful adaptogen, which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body's systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). As an adaptogen, maca can provide more energy if it is needed, but if it is not, it will not overstimulate. Adaptogens also boost immunity and increase the body's overall vitality by 10-15% according to most studies. Rather than addressing a specific symptom, adaptogens are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole body to diverse and challenging situations and stress.

During the height of the Incan Empire, legend has it that Incan warriors would consume maca before entering into battle. This would make them fiercely strong. But after conquering a city the Incan soldiers were prohibited from using maca, to protect the women from excessive sexual impulses.
