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 have placed several orders with Nuts.com and they have amazed me every time. They have speedy service and everything comes packaged in such great packaging. I have not had one bad thing since I have ordered with them. I enjoy their products so much. It is easy to go to the whole foods store to purchase things, but you really don't know if you are going to get good quality, but with Nuts.com you know you are getting what you ordered with such detailed information. Hearing other peoples' reviews is such a great help, it gives a better understanding to what I am wanting to order. I will always continue to use this website for my health food needs. Thanks again Nuts.com for all that you are as a business. :)”

“This site is amazing! I got a nutribullet for Christmas and some of the ingredients are difficult or very expensive around my area and can only be found at health food stores..nuts.com had every ingredient nutribullet recommends at a very good price. I made my order during the holiday and it was delivered in 3 days (I'm sure the holidays slowed it down) I was amazed how fast delivery was even during the holidays! Thanks you guys for the free sample as well I will be using Nuts.com for reorders and other orders as well and highly recommend this site to anyone! Thank you for being in business!! ”
