Maca Powder

Grown in the Andes, maca is a root vegetable that is picked, dried, and processed into a powder. Although reports of its health benefits are mixed, maca has been used to boost energy, endurance, and libido. “It’s also what’s called an adaptogen, which means that it can undo damage from fatigue and helps with regeneration and repair,” says Bellatti. With its rich earthy flavor and nutty taste, maca powder can be incorporated into baked items and smoothies or just sprinkled over cereal.
