Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is an herb native to the high Andes of Peru and Bolivia. Even though it is not part of the ginseng family, it is often called “Peruvian Ginseng” for its similar benefits. The fleshy tap rootÂ is very nutritious and used as a root vegetable.
Medicinally, maca root is pulverized and used as a powder to increase stamina, promote hormonal balance and to Â provide relief from menopausal symptoms.
Maca root is also said to boost libido and sexual performance and to enhance fertility in both men and women.

Valentine’s Day certainly takes center stage this month and many hearts beat faster….
But February is also the month when the American Heart Association reminds us that heart disease is the leading cause of death in this country for both men and women. It is a somber reality, but there are simple steps we all can take to avoid becoming part of a statistic. Aside from reducing stress in your life, eating a well-balanced diet and making time for exercise, many research studies have shown that drinking three to four cups of tea a day can keep your heart and cardiovascular system healthy. The regular consumption of black and green tea has been associated with reduced risk for hypertension, stroke and atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. Some studies suggest that the poly phenols in tea may improve blood vessel function and help to control blood clotting, thereby supporting healthy blood flow and circulation.
Even though scientists and regulatory agencies are reluctant to give their seal of approval, the evidence seems to point to what Chinese healers have known for millenia – tea is not only a tasty but also a healthy beverage.
So this Valentine’s Day take care of your sweetheart’s and your own heart with a nice cup of our special Souvia blend
