Authentic Vitamins Organic Premium 4 Root Maca Powder - 250g (Certified Organic)

Maca is a plant grown in the Peruvian over 4000m above sea level.

Its root and hypocotyl –the bulbous stem below the leafy growth – have for centuries been part of the diet and

culture of people in the region.

 Legend has it that Incan warriors consumed it prior to battle

to increase their fighting spirit, and it has historically been used to enhance strength,

stamina and libido.

It presents a broad spectrum of nutrients, which combine to produce an

adaptogen – something that helps the body balance its endocrine hormone and immune systems.

It does not target specific symptoms but instead has an overall optimising effect on

the body, helping it deal with adverse physical, chemical or biological influences.

For this reason Maca is increasingly popular with athletes.

The vitamin content of Maca is significant, too.

It contains Vitamin B1, necessary in our diets for proper function of both the muscles and the nervous system.

 Vitamin B2 helps us extract the energy from Maca’s carbohydrate content, as well as producing red blood cells.

 Vitamin C helps heal wounds and regulate blood flow, but is also highly antioxidant.

A signature component of Maca is dietary fibre, an absolutely essential part of our intake

and one which many modern foods lack in sufficiency.

 Fibre stabilises blood sugar, fluctuations in which have a significant impact on performance during sports.

 It helps prevention of and recovery from gastrointestinal problems, and helps lower blood pressure.

Lack of dietary fibre is associated with heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity.

There are several slightly-differing variants of Maca, which express themselves in the colour of the root and hypocotyl.

Maca can be cream, yellow-gold, green, red, purple, grey or black.

Fundamentally these have the same basic nutritional profile, but they exhibit small shifts in the proportions of secondary phytonutrients they present.

 Scientific study has begun to confirm the dietary opinion that different colours of Maca have slightly different beneficial properties.

Authentic Vitamins Maca powder is a yellow-gold Maca, chosen because it represents the optimum spread of benefits for active and athletic people.

Authentic Vitamins Maca powder is antiseptic and antifungal.

As an integral part of a healthy diet, it can help you maximise your energy,

optimise your health and recover rapidly from exercise to function constantly at your peak.
