Maca powder is made from grinding up the maca root. This truly amazing additive provides your body and mind with a healthy kick. Maca powder is packed full of vitamins and marvellous minerals. This prosperous powder also boosts energy levels and is known for its amazing ability to regulate hormone levels. You can find a bag of maca powder in health food stores all around the country when you’re out shopping for your groceries.
All year round
The maca root that maca powder is made from comes in three different types, identified by colour:
Yellow Maca Root:
- Yellow maca root powder is the most commonly used out of the three different variants. Not only is it known to provide large energy boosts throughout the day, but it is also known to boost focus and memory.
Black Maca Root:
- The rarest of the three root types, black maca root is known to boost endurance and hone mental focus.
Red Maca Root:
- Red maca root powder is the sweetest tasting out of the three and contains the largest amount of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, one of the three main energy sources your body relies on to build muscle. It has been known to balance hormones and help with all-around health.
Maca powder can be added to your heart-healthy, get-up-and-go smoothies, or to your delicious granola side bowl. Whether you are a fan of smoothies or scrumptious baked goods, maca powder will add a heart-healthy and nutrient-packed element to whatever it is you are tucking into.
Store your maca powder away from direct sunlight in a non-humid place. The fridge is as close to perfect as you are going to get. Once you have opened your maca powder bag, be sure to put it into an airtight container before you store it – we’d suggest reusing an old Flora tub.
