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. 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.

“I use Maca Powder in all my baking. I even put it in pumpkin pie, meatloaf, spaghetti sauce, just to name a few things. It gives a feeling of satisfaction after eating something with it included and takes away the munchies. To get the full benefit mix it with juice and within 5 - 10 minutes after drinking it a sense of well being floods over you that is unexplainable. Another feeling can happen too . . . . but I'll keep this testimonial G-rated. If you want relief from stress this could help and it happens so naturally you will hardly notice that it's happening until you say "Hummmm things aren't so bad after all. I wonder why?" MACA powder!!!!!”

“When I was placing my order, it was said that the product would be delivered the next day. First, I did not believe it, but now, I do! Wonderful experience with you. I am planning to buy more for retail, but would rather be interested in 1/2 lb bags.
Thank you again and than you for the extra sampling bag!

“I received my first order yesterday and was, first, pleasantly suprised by the cute and fun packaging of the box and products, not to mention the free sampler, which I've been nibbling on since, along with the Goji berries:); thank you.
I ordered Spirulina, Cacao and Maca powder, as well as a sampler of the Goji berries, for starters. The spirulina will make a nice addition to my home-cooked meals/shakes, the cacao to desserts and the maca, well, to both;); because of its delicious sweet/nutty/smokey smell and taste, I can't wait to try it on oven-cooked fish fillets and definitely in bread pudding, custard/pumpkin pies and much more.
Will definitely be sharing this with friends; you've got yourself a new nuts.com fan/customer. Thank you!!!. ”

“Wow! This is my second time ordering. I was impressed with just your adorable packaging on my first order. That alone makes you smile and feel good, but your products are awesome. We use the acai berry, goji berry, maca, chia seeds, and cacao powders in our morning smoothies, which are made with fruit, nuts, and greens. We are feeling great, more energy, better health all around. I am so glad that when I was searching for these powders, I lucked up and found your website!! Even give us a free treat to try. Thank you:)”

“I could not be happier with my order! After seriously narrowing down my selections (there are SO many delicious-looking items to choose from!), I purchased 10lb of goodies, and they are WELL worth the price! My favorite things right now are the natural papaya (try it if you've never had it!!), organic mango, and maca powder, which I've never tried before but am loving! I will definitely be placing more orders in the future! You guys rock!!!”
