POWERFUL ADAPTOGEN: Peruvian, gelatinized, certified organically-grown, sun-dried maca root (Lepidium meyenii). Sometimes unofficially referred to as “Peruvian ginseng,” maca grows in the harsh and extreme conditions of the Andes Mountains of central Peru. The uniqueness of Peruvian maca is the fact that it is cultivated agriculturally at the highest elevations on the planet of any crop. Maca has been consumed for centuries in the Andes and has had a great recognition amongst the indigenous peoples since pre-Incan times.
GELATINIZATION PROCESS: The maca gelatinization processes came about in the 1990s to make “raw” maca powder, a cruciferous root, easier to digest. Boiling and pressurization is used to greatly reduce the starch content thus creating a more concentrated maca than “raw” maca.
VITAL HEALTH BENEFITS: Adaptogens, by definition, are powerful botanical allies which work on the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis helping us to adapt to different kinds of stressors thereby supporting our innate resiliency and state of balance in already healthy individuals.* Adaptogens are also known to support a healthy endocrine system, be able to modulate the immune system, and support one’s inner vigor and energy levels in already healthy adults.*
