Otherwise known as the ‘superfood of the Andes’, Maca is an ancient Peruvian root crop that is popular among the indigenous population. In fact, the Inca Warriors consumed it to boost endurance, energy and vitality. Growing at altitudes of over 3,500m, Maca is a small root vegetable that belongs to the radish family.
Traditionally, it was an essential part of the natives’ diet and has since evolved into a modern day superfood. With a butterscotch flavour, Organax Maca Protein Powder comprises a range of nutrients including calcium, vitamin C, B2 and B6.
