Maca grows in South America at higher altitudes than any other plant in the world, anywhere between 7000-11,000 feet. No wonder the root of this plant translates into more mental and physical stamina for us. As an adaptogen it strengthens our endocrine and immune systems to help battle the constant stressors in our busy lives. So enjoy one or two of these for energy and stamina during that afternoon lull or before your workout.
