The ‘superfood’ concept is fairly recent, but people have known for a long time that there is something special about maca. The Incas ascribed such energising and aphrodisiac properties to maca that they are rumoured to have eaten it both before battle and before bed. Modern research has confirmed that the root’s unique alkaloids act to promote proper function of the endocrine (hormonal) system that regulates metabolism and sexual function. Loving Earth gets its maca from the indigenous Pumpush people of the Peruvian Andes, who grow it at altitudes of over 4,000 meters just as they did long before the Incan Empire even existed. It’s guaranteed fair trade, but thanks to Loving Earth’s low mark-up, still considerably less expensive than other commercially available maca powders.
