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
As an adaptogenic root, maca reduces anxiety and improves our ability to adapt in stressful situations. The rich iron content of organic 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
Organic maca powder 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 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.
