This organic maca root is harvested from the Peruvian mountains, where it serves as both an important food source and a traditional herbal medicine. Ground into a powder, maca can also be brewed into a high quality herbal tea.
Grown and harvested for the nourishing root it produces, maca is a relative of other known root vegetables, including radishes and turnips. Known for its rich nutritional content and mild nature, maca is often referred to as Peruvian Ginseng, even though the two roots are unrelated. With a pleasant earthy, somewhat nutty taste, maca is enjoyed as a root vegetable, as well as brewed into an invigorating herbal tea.
