Organic Maca Powder
Organic maca powder comes from 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. Maca powder can add a powerful dose of calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium and seven essential amino acids to your diet.
Benefits of Maca
As an adaptogenic root, maca reduces anxiety and improves our ability to adapt in stressful situations. The rich iron content of maca powder supports the formation of hemoglobin: the red blood cells responsible for delivering oxygen throughout your body. Iron keeps us feeling energized and helps fight fatigue throughout the day. 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.
Maca Powder: Tastes and Uses
Maca has a mildly sweet and pleasant butterscotch flavor, which makes it an easy additive to everyday 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 over popcorn, sliced fruit, or soups, or combine it with our organic cacao powder for an extra-energizing maca supplement.
Maca Powder: Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
There are 4 grams of fiber in just 1/2 ounces of maca powder and maca powder is known for its energy boosting properties. Plus, the powder has a mild flavor that doesn't overpower other tastes. Our Health Nut and Registered Dietitian says maca powder is a great way to boost the nutrient content of baked goods, such as breads, pancakes or muffins. When baking, add a few teaspoons to the flour mixture in the recipe to ensure it's mixed well throughout the batter.
Origins of Organic Maca Powder
Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a finicky root, similar to a turnip or radish, 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.

“I loved everything about ordering with this site. I really liked the graphics on the bag when I received the Maca. It was so cute! And I really like the feeling of being appreciated as a customer. The emails were friendly and warm, and that really made a huge difference. I will surely be shopping with this site again.”

“Thanks for your top tier customer service and high quality items!
I ordered a few days before Christmas so was aware of the potential for a delivery delay. Nonetheless, the customer service rep was spot on with the time frame of when the order should arrive. I was so satisfied with the level of customer service that arrival became less of a factor.
My initial order was one pound each of Moringa powder and Maca powder. I'm very pleased with the quality and look forward to ordering in the future. In addition, I'm heavily involved in the hectic new world of health care reform with a focus on helping people to realize the importance of taking responsibility for their health, apart from a focus on "insurance". I hope to send people your way for a Nutty experience that will translate to seeing the doctors less and enjoying life and good health more!”

“I am addicted to the odor of your maca powder! LOL. My wife is constantly finding me standing in the kitchen with my nose stuck in the bag sniffing the intoxicating odor. She thinks I'm nuts. (Nuts, get it?) Anyway, the effect it has on both of us is extraordinary. I use it in smoothies twice a day and I feel like what the Energizer Bunny must feel like--furry with ticks--JUST Kidding! Awesomely energetic! Who knew you could get that in a small bag? You guys are great!! Thanks.”

“The first thing I want to say is: You guys are Nuts!!!! lol. The package came way sooner than I expected, fast delivery! And the packaging, you guys made my day :) So much so that I walked it over to the business next door to me and showed it to everyone there and now they all want to order something from you. I ordered some Maca powder which I will mix with a Thai coconut and some coconut milk and yum yum yum. I know it will be good! You guys are great!!! Made my day and a few other people, I will be ordering again for sure. Some people just do it right, I ordered the product but didn't know I would get a smile along with it!!!!! Love it!”

“I am very impressed by my order of goodies. I can't wait to try all the yummy snacks. The sample pack is awesome and very generous. Thanks, for the extra goodie. I had some oatmeal today for breakfast with the Maca Powder, Organic Cacao Nibs, Organic Hemp Protein Powder and Goji Berries. It was awesome! The reason I ordered from you was I wanted to imitate an Oatmeal that I thought was to expensive to purchase. Your ingredients are what I was looking for. I have already recommended your site to my daughter. She plans on ordering from you, also. Thanks! I will definitely will be ordering from you again. Love the packaging too!”

“I recently ordered maca powder for the first time and I am obsessed now! I put it in my green smoothies and it leaves me feeling so happy and energized with just a teaspoon. I always read about the benefits of maca powder but never believed the hype until now! I also am slightly obsessed with this company now because everything is organic and it seems like a company that actually cares about its customers and not just sales. Thanks guys! <3”
