Our new 54% Peruvian Maca Root slab is not only super delicious, it’s a super superfood! Maca has a number of health benefits that improve your overall well-being, ranging from mind to body. It fits right in with the natural ingredients in our bean to bar chocolate that not only enhances the taste and experience but gives you peace of mind about what you are actually putting in your body.
What is Peruvian Maca?
Maca is a caffeine-free, plant-based superfood that grows in central Peru. Maca looks similar to radishes or turnips and the roots can be various colours such as yellow, purple, or black. This versatile adaptogenic herb helps the body adapt and deal with different stressors so you can live a well-balanced life, and it’s safe and easy to use in your everyday routine.
We source organic peruvian Maca from local superfood legends Soaring Free Superfoods, who deal directly with the suppliers in Peru.
Maca has great health benefits but it also has some flavour benefits. It adds a lovely maltiness to the chocolate – it gives our Oat Mylk chocolate a slightly softer warming flavour. There is also a bit of texture in the chocolate from the maca, but we love the feeling.
Peruvian Maca Root Health benefits
Boosts Energy and mood
Maca root has been shown to provide sustained energy throughout the day without the jittery crash of caffeine, which helps you feel more awake so you’re able to focus on the things that matter. Maca also may help improve depressive moods, according to a study published in Climacteric in 2015.
Improves Male and Female Sexual Health
Maca is known to support a balanced transition through menopause. Studies have shown that Maca may support psychological health and sexual function in postmenopausal women. Maca also enhances fertility in women and their overall reproductive well- being.
Being an aphrodisiac, Maca also supports men’s health and optimises healthy performance. This includes healthy sexual libido, reduces erectile dysfunction as well as normal prostate function.
Not only does Maca benefit what’s on the inside, it’s also packed with vitamins and minerals like vitamin C and zinc which are known to be the top beauty ingredients when it comes to anti-aging and fighting free radicals that can cause everything from skin damage to inflammation.
With an impressive list of benefits, Maca root can help complement a healthy lifestyle. This superfood is easy to add to your daily life one slab at a time.
