What’s the Maca Root Secret? Dense Nutrition.

Maca root is best known to deliver its many benefits through its dense makeup of alkaloids, amino acids, beta-ecdysone, calcium, carbohydrates, fatty acids, glucosinolates, iron, magnesium, p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, phosphorus, potassium, protein, saponins, sitosterols, stigmasterol, tannins, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc.

Maca root is also known to contain the chemical p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate. It’s considered to be one of a collection of biologically active aromatic isothiocyanates and is where the aphrodisiac qualities of maca come from. This is not found anywhere but in maca, and is why each cup of our Macaccino organic energy drinks do more than most energy drinks could only dream of.
