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.

“Service is great, I'm happy with my order. The sample sizes are actually a beneficial size. I was expecting the sample to be the size of a tea bag, but it's actually something I can use for a while to see if its for me. Thank you. As I explore your site even further, you have something of everything. ”

“I received my order as promised. You carry lots of items that just are not available locally or if they do they are a lot more expensive. Take Maca powder for example, it cost about 1/3 the cost to purchase it here in a health food store.”

, Las Vegas, NV November 7, 2010

“The order arrived much quicker than I expected and everything was copacetic. I've been using the products for a week now and am very satisfied. The packaging is top notch and keeps the maca, chia, chlorella, and spirulina fresh. Also thanks for the sampler of Goji berries! I will have to order a larger package of them. They were great!”

“The order arrived quickly and on time as estimated. I love to use maca for a smoothie recipe. The organic chia energy squares were absolutely delicious and delightful... just the perfect blend of dates, seeds and coconut!

I will be placing another order with you soon. I just looked and found out you sell organic, raw, unpasteurized almonds - great for making almond milk. Very difficult find in Calif.”

, Brea, CA October 31, 2010

“My body was reacting to everything I ingested including my supplements causing a lot of pain. Someone had told me about the maca and you had the best price...by the fourth day my symptoms had disappeared so I tried eating all the things I couldn't tolerate before just to see what would happen and I didn't react anymore...my chiropractor was surprised and tested me just to make sure it was the maca and it was...great product...my only problem was that my two ordered bags got divided up between all my friends
...thanks so much!”

“It's amazing that Maca powder is nowhere to be found in local retail stores! Not GNC, nor the vitamin section at my pharmacy. Thanks for carrying this and other quality products, and for making the ordering process so simple! I received my order exactly when you said it would get to me!!! ”

, Middletown, DE September 25, 2010
