    Navitas Naturals Maca Pwer Gelatinized Maca Capsules

    Concentrated Incan Superfood Capsules - 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. 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 menopasuse 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. Used to increase stamina, boost libido, and combat fatigue, maca root has long been regarded as a highly adaptogenic and powerful food. Navitas Naturals Gelatinized Maca Powder Capsules contain a concentrated form of this special root’s beneficial elements. Here, the fiber of the root is extracted, making this superfood more digestible and its beneficial qualities intensified. Navitas Naturals capsules are a convenient way to enjoy this raw superfood anytime and anywhere.

    Gelatinization is an extrusion process that removes the starch from Maca, making a more concentrated powder, with more active ingredients per unit, that is easier for the body to digest and absorb.

    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 gelatinized and milled: a process that concentrates the active ingredients through a heated extrusion to remove the starch. Lastly, the concentrated powder is encapsulated in vegetable-based capsules. This product has only one ingredient, maca root, and is 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.
