The YogaEarth community has fallen in love with Maca. We just can't get enough of it's energizing, balancing and nourishing effects. At the office we're adding it to everything from raw cacao tortes to summer berry smoothies!
The decision to include Maca Powder in our lineup of organic superfoods was based on input from our hard working, athletic and health-conscious consumer community. From yogis to runners, rock climbers, skiers, hikers and bikers, the desire to include a natural endurance and strength-boosting superfood was across the board.
While there are many other “energy-boosting” powders to choose from, we decided to include Organic Maca Powder because of it’s pure, single-ingredient power that has withstood the test of time.
