Organic Red Maca Powder
Organic red maca powder (raw) is an adaptogenic root that may enhance your ability to deal with stress while boosting energy, endurance and performance. Red maca is packed with even more vitamins and nutrients than regular maca. In traditional Peruvian culture, maca is believed to be an aphrodisiac. Find out for yourself, and blend a spoonful of this sweet powder into your smoothies, or mix with our organic cacao powder for a delightfully energizing effect!
While this is organic red maca powder, please note that it is tan in color and not red. Our organic maca powder is never heated and is considered raw.
Health Benefits of Red Maca
Organic red maca powder balances the body to create sustainable, balanced energy, though it is not a stimulant. It boasts an impressive nutrient profile with 60 potent nutrients, including beta-sitosterol, glucosinolates, and fatty acids. As an excellent source of protein, red maca contains 18 amino acids, including 7 of the 9 essential amino acids. Since maca is an adaptogenic root, it supports the normal function of the endocrine system, which regulates the secretion of hormones into the bloodstream. Proper hormonal balance can reduce the severity of menopausal symptoms, enhance the body's ability to deal with stress, boost a weakened immune system, and ward off mild depression. As a natural source of energy, maca can support weight loss goals by increasing metabolism and helping the body burn more calories over time.
Why RED Maca?
Organic red maca powder contains the same nutrient levels as other maca varieties, and then some. Compared to other varieties, red maca powder contains higher levels of phytochemicals. Studies suggest red maca may promote good prostate health, combat osteoporosis, and support bone regeneration.
1) In a study published in the Journal Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology 2005; 3:5, researchers reported that red maca significantly reduced ventral prostate size in rats. This effect was exclusive to red maca, and was not the case for either the black or yellow varieties.
2) Another study published by researchers from the Universidad Peruana, Lima in 2010, found that red maca had protective effects on the bone structure in rats with osteoporosis. This research has positive implications for the effect of red maca on bone health.
Red Maca In Your Diet
Red Maca has a mellow, sun-dried butterscotch flavor. Its mild flavor works well in drinks and foods. For a natural source of energy in the mornings, try adding a few teaspoons of red maca to your breakfast oatmeal or other hot cereals. We love mixing red maca in smoothies, milkshakes, and even hot chocolate. Or try adding a scoop to foods like chia pudding for an additional boost of energy and nutrients.

“Your amazingly low prices (half the price of other web-sites) is what first attracted me. After reading the testimonials, I decided to place an order... They were right! The estimated delivery time was right on, and the packaging was great, especially the zip-lock on the 1 lb. bags.
On a separate note, most of the things I bought (spirulina, goji berries, hemp protein, etc.) were not on your nav. bar on the left of the screen. I hope you're not missing any potential business.
I'm impressed, and will be back.

“This was my first order with Nuts Online and I have nothing but PRAISE for this shopping experience. I purchased the raw energy snacks and it is YUMMY! Excellent quality! I also purchased the Maca and Hemp powders and use these in my smoothies. Very delicious. Prices are awesome and the service and delivery are A+. They pack up everything in the box so fast and ship it out within a day that I ordered. I live in Hawaii and these prices can't be beat...Especially the shipping! Mahalo Nuts Online and I'll be making my next order of all kinds of nuts very soon! I'm going RAW!”

“I received my chia seeds, organic cacoa powder & organic maca powder in 2 days--WOW! I have been putting the cacoa powder & maca in my husband's protein shake & in his oatmeal. I've been putting the chia seeds in my greens drink, & also have mixed them in a bowl with 9 parts water to the seeds. After whisking them several times, I covered them & placed in the fridge. I have been told they can keep up to 2 weeks. This makes it easier & more palatable to add to smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, etc. Thanks for the GREAT service & affordable prices on your products! Gail”

“Nutsonline comes through again! FAST delivery. It makes my head spin!
Shannon, VA July 1, 2009
“Everything I ordered came within the two days, as promised, and is of excellent quality. I priced Chia seeds and Maca powder at another place before I ordered with Nuts Online. The products themselves were more expensive and the shipping was the same price for normal USPS ground shipping. For the exact same thing! Their Chia seeds weren't even as high quality (non-irradiated, chemical free and such)and their maca powders were not organic. Nuts Online rules! Thanks guys!”
