Maca is rich in the dietary minerals calcium and potassium (with low content of sodium), and contains the essential trace elements iron, iodine, copper, manganese and zinc, as well as fatty acids including linolenic acid, palmitic acid, oleic acids and 19 amino acis. I consume it in smoothies, cereals, soups, cakes, cookies and raw bars. It contains selenium and zinc, minerals vital to mens health. Eating this food can improve your immune system and boost your vitality. I miss this rare food when it’s unavailable.
