Maca was traditionally used as an energy-booster by the indigenous people of South America, and is packed with phytonutrients. It is known as an “adaptogen”, a name given to certain herbs reputed to help the body adapt to stress. Studies suggest that maca provides natural relief for PMS and menopause as well as encourages a healthy libido for both men and women.

    Suggested use: With its slightly malty flavour, maca tastes great in smoothies, energy drinks, yoghurt, oats and food bars.

It aids the body in reacting and recovering from physical and mental stress. Adaptogens like Maca can boost stamina, vitality and immunity. Furthermore, it can alleviate depression, anxiety and fatigue.

    There are various types of Maca roots, which are identified by their respective colours. Black Maca is the strongest energy producing Maca of all varieties. It has strong effects on sperm production and is used to increase male fertility. Although unrelated to Ginseng, Maca is sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng because of its similar properties.  Sfera Maca Noir capsules are created from the rarest Maca roots, which are light to dark grey in colour. These roots account for less than 20% of the harvest.
