Maca has been cultivated for thousands of years in the Andes Mountains of Peru. It was used by the Incas as a medicine and energy booster, and is now widely regarded as a super food.

Maca comes from a root, which is typically ground and sold as a powder. It can be added to smoothies or dessert recipes and adds a nutty or malty flavor. Maca is sold online and in some health food stores.
