Navitas Naturals Raw Maca Powder - 16 oz. (454 g)

Navitas Naturals Raw Maca Powder, Maca root has been used in indigenous Andean societies as a source of nourishment and healing for thousands of years, and continues to be one of the most appreciated superfoods today. Used to increase stamina, boost libido, and combat fatigue, maca root has long been regarded as a highly adaptogenic food. Navitas Naturals Raw Maca Powder is the raw and natural form of this special root – gently dried and ground to preserve it’s vitality and nutritional structure. With an earthy taste that is slightly nutty with a hint of butterscotch, maca is easily blended into superfood smoothies, various milks, chocolates, or mixed into flour for dessert recipes.

Source and Processing
Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Maca Powder is cultivated in its indigenous region of the Junin Plateau amongst the Peruvian Andes. After harvest, the maca roots are slow-dried and gently milled at low temperatures to preserve the food’s natural integrity. This product has only one ingredient, maca root, and is raw, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and 100% organic.

Maca (ma-kuh) a herbaceous plant native to the high Andes of Bolivia and Peru. It is grown for its fleshy hypocotyl, which is used as a root vegetable and a medicinal herb.

Incan Strength
The root of the maca plant has been used in indigenous Andean cultures as a source of nourishment and healing for many millenniums. A radish-like root, maca is indigenous to the mountainous and ragged terrain of the Peruvian highlands. Although its foliage may be small and unassuming, the harvested root of the maca plant was traditionally used by Incan warriors in preparation for difficult expositions and battles, and was consumed to increase stamina and energy. So esteemed was this special root, that it later became used as a form of currency by the Spaniards -- a practice which still carries on in some areas of Peru even today. Enjoying a massive resurgence in use, maca continues to be one of the most appreciated superfoods on the market. Navitas Naturals offers maca in 4 forms to suit all needs: a raw powder, a gelatinized powder, and a capsulated form of each.


The Power of Maca
Maca has long been used to increase stamina, boost libido, and combat fatigue for good reasons. The root is a superb adaptogen, as it enables the body to more easily adapt to and regulate stress factors imposed upon it. Studies have also identified four alkaloids present in maca, which are known to nourish the endocrine system (the system in the body which is responsible for the production and maintenance of hormones). Maca root is a highly nutrient-dense whole food, as it is packed with vitamins, plant sterols, many essential minerals, amino acids and healthy fats. This is a particularly powerful and balanced food for athletes and those who are looking to combat stress or increase stamina.

Energy Food
Maca is a very potent food, and just a little maca sprinkled into recipes turns any meal into a supermeal. With an earthy taste that is mildly nutty with a hint of butterscotch, maca is easily blended into superfood smoothies, various milks, chocolates, or mixed into flour for dessert recipes. Alternately, use maca straight by taking in a capsule form, and enjoy its benefits anytime and anywhere.

DID YOU KNOW?
Peruvian lore tells of maca’s use during the Tahuantinsuyo Empire. The root was prescribed to warriors in preparation for battle to increase their strength and endurance. However, outside of war-time, warriors were banned from maca as the leaders knew (and modern scientists have confirmed) that maca can increase the libido.

  • Add 1-2 Tbsp of maca to smoothies; maca pairs especially well with other superfoods.

This is a quality product at a good discount. . I usually mix unsweetened coconut shreds, raw cacao nibs, chia seeds, hemp seeds, raw maca powder, cinnamon, spirulina, stevia & almond milk. Mix it all together & let it sit for 10 minutes so it thickens. I eat it with a spoon.

At the advice of my health conscious daughter, I decided to try Maca Powder. She had warned me to use just a pinch as it really boosts your energy. I tried more than a pinch but I really didn't sense any great energy boost. I'll try it again because it's healthy anyway. Maybe if I use it everyday I'll begin to notice a difference.
