~ What is Maca ? ~

Maca is one of the top ten Super Foods and highly
recommended for anyone who suffers with low energy or depression

I bought some Maca root powder. My husband and I both have little energy and this is supposed to be one of the top ten super foods. It enhances energy and mood also is high in iron which I desperately need. It has a distinct flavor that needs to be hidden in something like raw chocolate pie. I have been adding it in my chocolate pies and my son has not noticed. I have been also adding it to my husbands fruit smoothies and it is amazing to watch the results . It works directly when you put it in your body. You need to be careful taking this food not to overdue it. In order to be balanced it is recommended to take if for three or four days then stop for a few days before taking it again. Too much of this awesome food could cause you to crash. Begin slowly with 1 tsp a day then up to 1 tablespoon ...
**If you suffer with liver or kidney conditions or if your are pregnant and breasfeeding consult your medical doctor before you take this product...**
