Maca is a root vegetable grown in the Peruvian Andes. It was sacred to the Incas and has been used as a food and medicine in South America for centuries. It is well known for its ability to help enhance strength and endurance; in fact, Incan warriors would often consume maca before long journeys and battles. Maca Extreme is a micro-pulverized, highly absorbable, 4:1 concentration of the most important elements in maca — a little goes a long way! Maca Extreme contains less starch than standard maca, making it ideal for those with difficulty digesting certain types of vegetables.
The Sunfood Difference:
Traditionally, maca powder is made by grinding up sun-dried maca roots. Our Maca Extreme is created using a cold-drying process with fresh maca roots, generating a uniquely powerful concentration not found anywhere else. Sunfood Maca Extreme can be used in place of or in combination with regular maca powder in all recipes.
