Maca Root Edmonton?

I have been reading about Maca Root powder as a supplement, but I am not terribly comfortable taking supplements in general. I figured if maca root is so good for you, why not eat the real thing? Anyone know where I could get it in Edmonton and how I would prepare it?

  1. You can buy maca powder at Planet Organic (at least in the Calgary location). The powder is just a different form of the root so I think that's as good as you'll find.

      you can add it to a smoothie or something along those lines (in powder form). be prepared, its super expensive. You can also get liquid supplements that have it in it.

      you can also try most larger health food store such as Optimum Vitamins.

    2. saw it at Bulk Barn this week

      1. I have bought some from Planet Organic, I have also seen them at the vitamin section of Superstore.
