the power of Maca

I thought I'd add a little note here about Maca. Adrian swears by it and now he is regularly having green smoothies, he puts a huge teaspoon into it. He reckons its like having a liquid power bolt. it has a caramel type taste - but I find it a bit rich and strong... but perhaps its just me....

Anyways..... Peruvian maca root has been dubbed "Peruvian ginseng," even though it bears no relation to ginseng. But like ginseng, the maca plant is employed into a Peruvian maca extract to increase strength, energy, stamina and libido. It comes in a powder form and needs a fair bit of mixing otherwise its a bit lumpy! It seems that during the height of the Incan empire, Incan warriors would consume maca before entering into battle. This would make them fiercely strong. Whether this happens to you or not is another thing....
