Did you know there’s a Peruvian root that’s been cultivated for thousands of years that can help with energy, fertility, hormonal dysfunction, depression, circulation, mental acuity, and more?
There is and it’s called maca.
Mark Ament (owner of The Maca Team) has made it his life’s mission to source the best quality, freshest Peruvian maca while keeping it as affordable as possible for all of us. He’s doing a great job — his maca is truly the best. I can feel the difference in my vitality and I eat it regularly in smoothies.
Today, Mark is my podcast guest and we’re talking about:
- what the superfood maca is
- what maca can do for your vitality and health
- why it’s important to get fresh, high-quality maca (otherwise, it’s a waste of money)
- ways to eat maca
- the difference between raw and gelatinized maca
- the intrigue that surrounds Peruvian maca and what The Maca Team is doing about it (hint: it benefits all of us)

Tip of the Week: Easy Soft/Cottage Cheese
I’ve been making a really easy cheese lately. It takes me about 15 minutes over the course of 2-3 days. I explained how in the podcast. Traditional Cooking School members, you’ve got this on video in the members area (look in “Fun Stuff” when you’re logged in).

I remember reading a post of yours about making your own supplement capsules with things like Maca but I now can’t find the post. Could you link it in please? X
