MACA powder is the Superfood of the Incas where it was revered for its hormone balancing qualities. It’s a root veggie that’s also used to improve stamina and libido. It is grown at 4,000m above sea level in the Andes. Look for ‘raw, organic, maca powder’ in your health food shop, or on line. Loving Earth have a lovely one.
Maca doesn’t mind being heated so add a tablespoon or so to your baking, or to keep it raw add it to your smoothies (about 1 tsp), biscuits, Bliss Balls, ice cream and raw chocolate. It has a lovely malty taste.
Not a lot of research has been done on its safety during breastfeeding and lactation but yes it looks to be safe.
