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. Organic maca powder can add a powerful dose of calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium and seven essential amino acids to your diet.

Health Benefits of Maca Powder

1) Increase Energy and Stamina - If you're tempted to pour yourself that second cup of coffee, consider maca powder instead. Maca powder works by nourishing the adrenal glands, which regulate the hormones involved in energy production. It has none of the negative side effects associated with caffeine so you can say goodbye to feeling jittery and experiencing that dreaded caffeine crash.

2) Relieve Stress - As an adaptogenic root, maca powder strengthens our ability to deal with stress and manage anxiety. Stress often impacts our ability to think clearly and can lead to health-related problems such as a weakened immune system. Adding a few teaspoons of maca powder to your diet can help balance stress hormones when they're out of whack so that you're able to handle obstacles more effectively.

3) Boost Your Mood - If you're feeling a little blue, maca powder is one of those foods that will make you smile. The endocrine system secretes hormones that affect mood and behavior, and sometimes those levels can become imbalanced. Maca powder naturally stimulates hormone levels that are too low, and regulates those that are overactive. It's the perfect cure for a bad day!

4) Nutritional Powerhouse - Maca powder is a good source of B-complex vitamins and minerals like calcium, zinc and iron. The high fiber content in maca supports a healthy digestive system and helps stabilize blood sugar levels. With seven essential amino acids, maca powder is a nearly complete source of protein. This energizing superfood is a great way to amp up your nutrient intake!

Maca Powder: Serving Suggestions

Organic maca powder has a mildly sweet and pleasant butterscotch flavor, which makes it an easy additive to everyday drinks and food. You can start out by using ½ teaspoon of maca powder in your diet, and gradually increase the amount to 1 tablespoon a few times a week. 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. Many of our customers enjoy mixing maca powder in smoothies because it adds plenty of nutrients without overwhelming the flavor. 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 organic 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.
