Maca is a plant which grows naturally at high-altitude, in the Peruvian Andes. For many centuries it has been a central part of local diets in Peru and Bolivia, where almost every part of the plant is used. Also known as “Peruvian Ginseng”, Maca is a nutrition-packed root vegetable, flourishing in environments often 4000m above sea level. Plants at this harsh altitude have to take in as many nutrients from the ground as possible to survive, hence why Sevenhills Wholefoods source this product for its impressive nutritional content.

Value and quantity good, however hadn't anticipated the taste which I dislike but have got over this with adding to fresh orange juice. It does appear to have given me more energy and slightly lessened night sweats, so will keep going with it for a while

I add it to my morning coffee shake and since taking it daily I have had 90% reduction in my menopausal night sweats. I have taken it for 3 weeks and it looks as if the pack will last several months. I will continue taking it and have recommended it to friends. I have not experienced any problematic side effects.

Tastes a bit more pungent than some of the other versions I've tried so I use a little less.
Great for energy stamina and male and female fertility. I put it in almond milk or smoothies.
