The root vegetable Lepidium meyenii (maca) is a member of the cruciferous family that also includes broccoli, cauliflower and kale. In the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains where our maca root is grown, the harsh environment has shaped this superfood to be tough enough to withstand any environmental challenge. It passes its strength on to you. The roots are carefully selected, then washed before they are cut, cooked, dried and made ready for milling.
It is widely recognized that maca can help to support the emotional aspects of sexual health and libido, which are vital for fertility and a healthy sex life. It lowers inflammation while efficiently invigorating, boosting and elevating a healthy lifestyle.
In women, maca supplementation has been studied to help normalize the symptoms of premenstrual/menstrual symptoms as well as the symptoms of menopause including hot flashes, night sweats, cramps, fatigue and lethargy. Stress levels and emotional states are also balanced. Maca supports healthy bone structure, which can decrease with age and lowering estrogen levels.
In men, maca is used to promote healthy testosterone levels, which helps improve strength, vitality, hair health, higher bone mass density and sexual drive.

Q: Does your maca contain gelatin?
A: Gelatinization does not mean there is “gelatin” in it. It is the name of the process used to remove the starches to make the maca root more digestible. It is still vegan and vegetarian friendly.
Q: Is your maca powder a raw food?
A: Our maca is not considered to be “raw” because it goes through the gelatinization process, which includes a slow cooking process.
Q: I’ve had problems with other maca powders giving me gas and bloating. Will I get that with your product?
A: No. The gelatinization process can make it easier for those with sensitive digestive systems to handle due to the removal of the starches and the pre-digestion of cooking.
Q: Am I adding a lot of calories to my diet when I add maca powder to my smoothie?
A: Maca is a great source of copper and manganese, and a good source of B1 and iron and the phytonutrient macaridine. Besides all the fantastic vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, for every one teaspoon (5g) serving, you get 20 calories, one gram of fibre, and one gram of protein.
