Raw Maca Powder



I meant to order match green tea, but accidentally ordered raw maca powder instead and I could not be more thrilled to stumble upon a fantastic new product from Navitas Naturals.


Well, technically it is not a new product, just new to me. In fact, maca (pronounced ma-kuh) has been around for ages, steaming from the indigenous Andean culture. 

Benefits of Maca:

Increase stamina, boost libido, fights fatigue, regulates stress, nourishes the endocrine system

Interestingly, according to Navitas Naturals, Peruvian lore tells of maca’s use during the Tahuantinsuyo Empire. The root was prescribed to warriors in preparation for battle to increase their strength and endurance. However, outside of war-time, warriors were banned from maca as the leaders knew (and modern scientists have confirmed) that maca can increase the libido. 

Since I am new to maca I am excited to start experimenting with different recipes and creations. Can’t wait to share them with you!

You can find more information on Navitas Naturals website.
