Maca Root Powder

I had ordered some Maca Root Powder a while back.  The powder has a strong taste.  To me it is similar to molasses.  I was not a big fan.  But Maca has some pretty good nutrients going in its favor.

It is made up of

60-75% carbohydrates
10-14% protein
8.5% dietary fiber
2.2% fats.

Maca is rich in the dietary minerals calcium and potassium, and contains the essential trace elements iron, iodine, copper, manganese, and zinc as well as almost 20 fatty acids including linolenic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acids, and 19 amino acids. Maca also contains selenium and magnesium.

So quite a punch for that root! I have read that it helps with physical endurance.  We shall see.

I’ve begun adding in a teaspoon to my morning smoothies.  I will eventually work the amount up as I become more accustomed to it strong flavor.
