Nature's love drug


Maca is an organic superfood treasure that derives from South America, which has a nutty, earthy taste with a sweet caramel hint. It is arguably the most famous natural superfood aphrodisiac, which has been used for centuries for increased energy, stamina and endurance, and hailed for balancing hormones, boosting the libido and increasing sexual function. This is largely due to it’s potent adaptogenic qualities that support and foster the body’s adrenal glands, which are responsible for regulating hormones.

More so, it contains alkaloids which promote a healthy mind, destress the body and provide a overall feeling of wellbeing. Maca also has over 20 amino acids and boasts a wide range of essential vitamins and minerals including Vitamins B1,B2, C and E, iron, selenium, potassium, calcium and magnesium for extra nourishing goodness.

Enjoy it by adding to smoothies, raw desserts, baked goods and hot cacao drinks.


Speaking of hot cacao, another libido-boosting superfood is Cacao Powder. Chocolate is one of the most sensual foods around, and for good reason. Cacao powder is the most natural, potent form, which contains a number of phytochemicals that contribute to improved mood and the release of serotonin and dopamine – the “pleasure” transmitters. It is rich in magnesium which relaxes muscles and eases tension in the mind, as well as phenylethylamine, a compound we have been shown to produce when we are in love. Cacao also contains arginine and flavanols which are known to have similar effects to viagra as they help relax blood vessels and increase blood flow…to you know where.

Enjoy cacao in raw desserts, baked goods, hot cacao drinks, or make yourself or your lover some of our libido-boosting maca raw chocolate bark.
