Maca Extreme

September 1, 2007

Sun Nutrition, San Diego, CA, has unveiled Maca Extreme, a nutrient-dense powder that boosts performance. Cultivated sustainably in the harsh high-altitude climate of Peru, Maca Extreme is a raw, organic and concentrated form of the maca root that is easy for the body to digest (therefore less flatulence). A low temperature process juices the maca root, removes its excess fiber and concentrates the nutrient rich compounds into a potent fine powder. Maca is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur and iron, and contains trace minerals, including zinc, iodine, copper, selenium, bismuth, manganese and silica, as well as vitamins B1, B2, B12, C and E. Maca also provides 18 amino acids, seven essential amino acids and is also a rich source of sterols and fatty acids.
