      Navitas Naturals Maca Power Raw Maca Powder - 7.1 oz. (200 g)

      Maca is a root vegetable that is rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Peruvians have used Maca for generations to enhance general health, increase energy and stamina, and to help treat the symptoms of menopasue and low libido. It is believed Maca achieves this by regulating the body's glandular function and promoting hormonal balance in both men and woman.

      Navitas Naturals certified organic Maca is cultivated in Junin, Peru 14,000 feet above sea level. Maca Power is pure organic Maca that is non-irradiated and contains no additives or preservatives. A low temperature drying process and milled-to-order, non-oxidized product ensures maximum nutrient preservation. Maca Power is a fair trade product that is sustainably harvested with Navitas Naturals Peruvian partners.

      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.

      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.

      • Add 1-2 Tbsp of maca to smoothies; maca pairs especially well with other superfoods.
      • Cacao is a perfect pairing with maca.

      I don't think I use it consistently enough despite the ease of adding the small recommended dose to just about any meal. The days I do use it I do notice an increase in energy, but also my appetite. The appetite factor may just be a coincidence

      Actually ordered the wrong product. Was suppose to get the capsules instead of the powder. So now I am trying to find ways to mix it in different foods. As for the products functionality, product provides energy and does what the mfg describes.
