Maca is a root that comes from South America and has a taste like chicory, similar to coffee. It is known to regulate the hypothalamus gland’s production of cortisol, the stress hormone.
Maca is a root grown in the Andes. It is renowned for its ability to increase both sexual desire and fertility. In a study published in the medical journal ‘Andrologia,’ it was reported that men taking maca root experienced a higher rate of fertility and sexual desire than men taking a placebo. And many herbalists, including Chris Kilham, the author of ‘Hot Plants’ recommend it as a treatment for low libido in women, as well.
How can you use maca powder? I’m glad you asked! Maca is the secret ingredient that adds a malt-y flavor to my raw Chocolate Malt. This frosty treat, made with hemp milk, bananas, and unsweetened cocoa powder, will crush your chocolate cravings without spiking your blood sugar.
