Legend has it that Incan warriors used to eat maca before going into battle – they believed it gave them invincible strength and stamina. Yellow maca is the mostly widely available type of maca root, which has thyroid modulating and hormone balancing properties. Maca provides excellent support for your body pre- & post-exercise. Blend into smoothies, hot chocolate, desserts, snack bars and sweet treats. Maca has an incredible synergistic effect when combined with raw cacao, so add it into your chocolate creations.
