save with subscriptions
A potent superfood and adaptogen. Our organic maca is carefully hand selected and milled into a powder to preserves the integrity of this precious root. This arid mountain food has been consumed for ages in central region of the Andes: in the pre-Incan age, it was considered as a gift from the gods and offered to them in many of their ceremonies.
Part of the native Peruvian biodiversity, Maca is a very special root cultivated in the high Andes. Maca is an adaptogen, which means it strengthens the body by providing it with defense mechanisms to fight against stress and fatigue. It is also a great source of plant-based protein, fibre, iron and vitamin C. The Incas recognized its benefits, using it to improve physical and mental performance.
Our organic maca comes from a very resilient and adaptable tubercule that grows in the high Andean mountains of Peru, between 3,800 and 4,200 meters above sea levels. The carefully hand-selected maca is ground into a fine, silky smooth powder.
Maca root can cause an allergic reaction in some people, according to the Physicians' Desktop Reference. Signs of an allergic reaction include tightness in the throat or chest, trouble breathing and chest pain. Maca root allergy can result in a rash or hives, as well as itchiness or swollen patches of skin. People who tend to suffer from allergies should consult with a doctor before starting any new drug or herbal regimen.
If you have a history of diabetes, hypertension or cardiovascular disease, it may not be safe for you to take maca. Use of maca has the potential to cause goiters if you suffer from thyroid-related conditions.
The powder obtained can be added to smoothies, teas, plant-based milks, coffee, juices, yogurts, desserts and baked goods. Maca is also excellent when mixed with cacao and carob powder.
For consistent use, it is recommended that you consume 1-3 teaspoons each day and take a week off every month.
