Can children take Maca?
YES! Maca Root is a food that has lots of nutrients – rich in essential amino acids, complex carbohydrates, vitamins (including Vitamin B12 which is hardly found in plant foods), calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, selenium, zinc, iodine, sterols, and many more. In a 1997 study done in Peru, children aged 1-6, who suffered from malnourishment and anemia, showed marked improvement in their conditions upon taking maca for a period of 1 month. Maca is also known to improve mental clarity and concentration. Add a little Maca (one-quarter teaspoon for example) to your child’s breakfast to improve his/her energy and concentration level.
