    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.

    Benefits

    • Adaptogen
    • Amino Acids
    • Essential Minerals
    • Energy
    • Plant Sterols
    • Phytonutrients

    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.

    Navitas Naturals mission is to provide premium quality organic power foods that increase energy and enhance health. Navitas products are of the highest quality, sourced directly from farmers, cultivated sustainably and in accordance with fair trade practices.

    Suggested Use

    As a dietary supplement mix 1/2 to 1 teaspoon (3.5 g) once or more per day into juice, smoothies, yogurt, etc. or as directed by your health care practitioner.

    • Smoothies, Shakes and Tea
    • Granola, Cereal and Yogurt
    • Energy Bars

    Chef’s Notes:

    • Maca has been traditionally used in baked foodstuffs for centuries; try adding a few spoonfuls to any favorite recipe.
    • Add 1-2 Tbsp of maca to smoothies; maca pairs especially well with other superfoods.
    • Cacao is a perfect pairing with maca.
    • When creating new maca recipes, try using 2 parts fat (like cacao or nut butter), 2 parts sweetener (like agave nectar or yacon syrup), and 1 part maca.

      Just from opening the bag and smelling the aroma, I know this to be a very potent product. I've tried maca products before and found Navitas to be very fresh. It has been an excellent boost to my diet and has seriously helped to regulate my hormone issues (adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism). TIP: If new to maca, try only a 1/4 tsp. at first to get used to the product then work your way up to a tablespoon.

      I've been using this product for about a week now and do notice a slight energy boost immediately after consumption. I haven't been on it long enough to fairly assess any type of long-term benefits as far as elevated stamina or libido. The somewhat nutty flavor mixes well with chocolate whey, ground flax, PB, and banana if you're making a shake - or mix all of the above in with some cottage cheese, stir and enjoy.

      It has a different taste that is hiddend quite well in some juice or a shake, but boy does it work! Much more energy and sense of just feel good. Seems to be helping my libido too. At 46, early menopause struck and I truly have noticed a difference. my partner is HAPPY!

      I was mixing this with my coffee for an extra energy boost. The only problem is it doesn't mix well and it does alter the taste some. I want to try using it in "energy bar" recipes. There are some posted on the Navitas Naturals web site that I want to try. I think the powder will work well for the recipes. The maca seems to have many benefits for the endocrine system.

      Love the smell, smells like graham crackers! Doesn't taste like it though, but it's not bad. I mix it in with my whey protein and rice milk. At first it made me very bloated, but after consistent use and a week or two that went away, so keep at it if that is a problem for you. Also, had a lot of energy after taking it for about the next 4-6 hours. So I wouldn't take it too close to bedtime at first. That too has seemed to subside or I don't notice it as much because I take it earlier in the day now.

      This is probably a great product for many people. ... but if you are a person with any estrogen dominant issues you might want to reconsider maca. Please do your research if you are a person with any health issues. I had to return this as Maca ended up being contraindicated for me.

      This Maca Powder has helped with anxiety I suffer from menopause and adrenal fatigue. I stir it into about 1 1/2 oz. of juice. Once mixed I add about 3 oz. of water. I'm purchasing empty capsules so that I can use this as an alternative way of taking the Maca. I've been using Maca for several months and find that it works quickly.

      6/28/2012 8:05:18 PM
      I love maca and it's benefits!!! However after having several stomach attacks and doing research I learned that raw Maca can be dangerous. Raw maca contains slightly toxic enzymes that protect the root from pests. These enzymes can interfere with the health benefits of maca and can cause digestive problems including severe stomach cramping and pain. The enzymes are deactivated once the maca has been cooked. Apparently people in Peru consume only cooked versions and the raw maca powder is used as a flour for cooking. Most gelatinized maca has been processed using heat that deactivates the enzymes. However there are some raw gelatinized versions out there. Raw maca may also reduce the ability to absorb iodine possibly contributing to thyroid problems. This is the rare situation where cooked is better than raw. Spend the extra money and get Navitas gelatinized maca. It is more powerful without the toxic effects! And may you all enjoy the benefits of maca!

      I've used Navitas Naturals Raw Maca Powder for over a year; it's fantastic! Blends well, doesnt leave lumps of powder in your smoothies or other mixtures! Many describe maca root as a 'nutty' flavor when mixed with other ingredients....not sure what nuts are referred to, but it does have a slight sharpness if not balanced in the mixture.
