Maca Powder Organic


Price per oz.

Maca (
lepidium meyenii) is an adaptogenic root known for its dynamic natural effects--users tend to experience a big boost in energy, relief from stress and even an increase in libido. While it is sometimes prepared and eaten as a root vegetable in the few areas where it is available fresh, its nutritional and medicinal assets are concentrated in our raw organic maca powder.

By sprinkling a few teaspoons of this powder over food or stirring it into juice, smoothies or yogurt, you can prepare a concoction with a powerful dose of calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium and seven essential amino acids. And beyond its noticeable effects on energy and endurance, a daily maca supplement regimen can promote better endocrine system health and may relieve ulcers, mild depression and menopause symptoms.

Origins of Organic Maca Powder

Maca is a finicky root that only grows well in the cold, arid climates of high mountain plateaus, and in soil that is inhospitable to most other crops. It is native to the Peruvian Andes, where it is still cultivated and carried to the villages below to be dried and ground into organic maca powder.

The root has a rich history in Peruvian culture and is believed to have been traditionally consumed by ancient Incan warriors just prior to battle, giving them superior endurance and strength. Its use as an aphrodisiac and fertility aid is also a time-honored Peruvian tradition. Maca benefits have historically been so sought-after and well-known in the area that the root was accepted by the Spanish as a form of currency during the colonization of the Inca Empire.

Powdered Maca in Your Diet

Our powder has a mild, pleasant flavor that makes it an easy additive to every day drinks and food. It's a great complement to oatmeal and other hot morning cereals, and powdered maca is even sweet enough to blend into milkshakes or stir into hot chocolate. Sprinkle a few teaspoons into cookie or bread dough to create baked goods with a punch, or combine it with our Raw Cacao Powder for an extra-energizing maca supplement.
