What is Maca Root Powder?
Our organic maca (ma-kuh) root powder is often called the perfect adaptogen (a natural substance that normalizes and regulates the systems of the body). This sweet and spicy nutrient packed root is one of the best natural stress relievers on the planet, allowing the body to adapt more easily to life’s challenges. A more effective adaptogen than goji berries and ginseng, maca root powder stabilizes all of the body’s systems, rather than focusing on one particular system. Our maca root powder provides overall well-being for cardio, lymphatic, nervous, and endocrine systems. It gently energizes, yet does not overstimulate. Maca root powder, also called Peruvian ginseng, has been used for centuries to increase libido and is used to treat fertility and men and women. It can be taken daily in smoothies or added as an ingredient to a variety of foods.

Energize Naturally and Maintain Optimal Wellness With Our Maca Root Powder
Our Raw Organic Maca Root Powder is one of the best defenses against stress, naturally bringing the body back to a state of optimal performance. Scientists have identified four alkaloids in maca root powder, which nourish the endocrine system and stabilize the body’s hormones. In fact, maca root powder is used as a hormone replacement therapy for women and to treat menopausal symptoms.

The History of the Peruvian Super Root
Since the times before the Incas, natives of the Peruvian and Bolivian highlands have known the secrets of the sacred maca root. Warriors consumed maca root before battle to give themselves increased energy and stamina, and to sustain themselves on long journeys. Maca root has been used as a powerful treatment for low libido and infertility in the Andean culture for more than 500 years. The Spaniards valued the medicinal qualities of maca root so much that they used it as currency.

Maca root powder is still a treasured food and medicinal staple in the harsh climate of the Andes, where it grows at elevations of 11,000 to 14,000 feet. This unassuming root is a member of the cruciferous family, resembling a radish with low-growing leaves that produce off-white flowers.

But it is the root that packs the punch in our Raw Organic Maca Root Powder. Maca root is the highest altitude food crop in the world, and takes on its characteristics as a powerful adaptogen because of the extreme climates in which it grows. This makes maca root powder a wonderful supplement for those living a lifestyle where endurance and the ability to adapt to stress are necessary.

How to Use Our Raw Organic Maca Root Powder
Today, athletes, raw foodists, vegans and vegetarians, outdoor adventurers, and culinary professionals enjoy our maca root powder. It has a flavor that is both spicy and sweet, and is considered a delicacy when added to desserts like puddings and chocolate, or to teas. When roasted, maca root is sweeter than cacao and has hints of butterscotch. Our maca root powder comes from roots that are dried at low temperatures to preserve vital nutrients. The root is then gently ground into a powder for use in a variety of foods. Boil in water for use in pastries or spoon into smoothies and yogurt to turn any meal into a “supermeal.”
