Description

In the heart of the majestic Peruvian Andes, where the air is pure and the mountains whisper ancient secrets, maca root emerges as a nutrient-packed treasure trove from the heart of nature itself.

For thousands of years, indigenous Peruvians have used maca as food and medication. Legend has it that warriors consumed it to harness otherworldly strength, while mystics indulged it to tap into the wellspring of vitality. Today, this enchanting root is embraced by those who seek not only physical vigour but also a connection to the ethereal energies of the Earth.

A complete protein, maca provides 19 amino acids, 4 different alkaloids, 20 different fatty acids, an abundance of calcium, and an assortment of antioxidants and vitamins including C, E, B1, and B2. The word "superfood" does not do it justice.

Our maca is a mixture of 4 different royal maca roots: 25% each of black, red, purple, and yellow offering a unique nutritional prole. Selected by hand, it is cleaned in water then dried and ground into new powder.

Certified organic and free of pesticides.

Blended into your morning honey water, it provides an energy boost into your day. Its adaptogenic qualities respond to the body's unique needs, promoting resilience in the face of life's challenges. Beyond the kitchen, maca is celebrated for enhancing endurance in the bedroom, balancing hormones, supporting fertility and overall well-being.

Origin

Maca, scientifically known as Lepidium meyenii, has a storied history dating back thousands of years. Indigenous to the Andean mountain range of Peru, maca has been revered by the Inca civilization and other ancient cultures for its medicinal and nutritional properties.

Maca belongs to the Brassicaceae family, which includes cabbage, broccoli, and radishes. It thrives in the harsh conditions of the Andean highlands, where extreme temperatures, high altitudes over 4000m, and nutrient-poor soil create a challenging environment for plant growth.

 

Uses

In accordance with EU directive 1924/2006 we are unable to make any health claim about any of our products. The information given below is scientific research findings about maca. It should not be inferred from these studies that our maca automatically possesses the same qualities or provides the same benefits as the one in these studies.

Libido and Sexual Function

A 2008 double blind randomised study at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA found that 3g of maca root taken daily enhanced libido and improved sexual function in both men and women.

A 2003 multinational double blind placebo-controlled, randomised, parallel trial at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima, Peru, found that 3g of maca root taken daily for 12 weeks increased sexual desire in men aged 21-56.

A 2020 double blind randomised controlled trial at the University of Barcelona, Spain, found that 2g of maca root taken daily for 12 weeks significantly increased semen concentration.

Mood Enhancement and Energy Boost

A 2013 study conducted by the Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, found that maca root decreased corticosterone stress levels and displayed antidepressant like effects. Athletes looking to boost energy and endurance may benefit from maca supplementation, as indicated by research in 2019 from the Department of Sports Science at the University of São Paulo.

Fertility Benefits

A 2011 study at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima, Peru, found that 5g daily intake of black and yellow maca root increased sperm count and motility in three weeks. These findings are supported by a 2020 study conducted by the Department of Reproductive Medicine at the University of Buenos Aires.

Menopausal Symptom Relief

A 2017 study by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Barcelona suggests that maca may help reduce menopausal symptoms like anxiety and depression in postmenopausal women. Additionally, research from the Department of Women's Health at the University of Sydney indicates that maca could help balance estrogen levels during perimenopause.

When considering the benefits of maca root, it is important to refer to the specific research conducted by reputable institutions to understand the scientific basis behind these claims.

 

What Is The Best Way To Take Maca Root Powder

How to use: for best results mix one teaspoon of maca root powder into a glass of warm water (max 37C) along with a teaspoon of raw organic honey; drink daily on an empty stomach before breakfast. Do not exceed more than one teaspoon per day. If unsure, always seek medical advice before adding maca to your diet.

Based on our research the best way to take maca root powder is mixed in warm water with raw organic honey. Water activates the living nutrients of maca and raw organic honey and amplifies the effect they have inside the body.

And when the maca powder is taken in its unprocessed, natural state, the body is able to extract all its bioactive compounds easily.

Take a teaspoon of raw organic active honey and mix into a glass of warm water (maximum 37C). Add one teaspoon of maca root powder to the mixture then drink it on an empty stomach 30 minutes before breakfast.

If you wish you can also add two tablespoons of raw organic apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of organic psyllium husk powder to the mixture.

The 30 minutes allows the honey and maca root powder mixture to be fully absorbed by the body before anything else enters it.

Taking raw organic honey by the spoon or by any other means does not have the same benefits as taking honey mixed in warm water.
