Maca Powder (Gelatinized)
MACA powder has been used in Peru for 1000's of years for energy boosting, hormonal balance and increasing libido. We love it!
ENRICHD Team Personal experience: "It's like a balanced energy boost but without the jitters. To me it feels like a more sustainable, nourishing boost!"
It's even more awesome because there are some high quality studies behind this almighty root, exploring the health benefits claimed by the Peruvians (See references below)
WHY GELATINISED MACA POWDER?
Gelatinised Maca is more easily digested and some of the nutrients are amplified, making it more potent = awesome!
(It is easier to digest than raw maca because some of the starch has been removed).
Gram for gram gelatinised maca powder is more concentrated than raw maca, which means it is more potent. Also, because this maca has been heated some of the nutrients are amplified! Pretty awesome right!
