Grown in the Peruvian Andes
Maca is a root vegetable that only grows at very high altitudes – between 3000 and 4000 metres above sea level – high in the Andean mountains of Peru away from environmental contaminants. The robust root battles extreme conditions and is able to withstand high winds and temperatures as low as -10°C.
Used for centuries by the indigenous people of the Andes
The Incas found maca so potent that the root was prescribed to warriors in preparation for battles to increase their strength and endurance.
Backed by Science
Maca helps boost sexual energy and soothes symptoms of menopause
Maca is the Peruvian root mainly used as food, but it’s also been used traditionally in Peru as a mood elevator and aphrodisiac.
Researchers are now backing up what Peruvians have known for generations.
In addition to its positive effects on sex, maca has also been shown to lower blood pressure and improve depression in postmenopausal women.
Preliminary findings in a 2008 study show that Lepidium meyenii (Maca) (3.5 g/d) reduces psychological symptoms, including anxiety and depression, and lowers measures of sexual dysfunction in postmenopausal women independent of estrogenic and androgenic activity.
Maca has been shown to reduce scores in depression and anxiety, and scientific evidence suggests that maca may be an energiser.

Naturally high in vitamins and minerals
Maca is a nutritionally dense superfood. It is high in vitamin c, vitamin B6, iron, calcium, riboflavin and potassium.
The vitamins and minerals in this powerful Peruvian root will help boost your immune system, stimulate energy, improve fertility, balance hormones, increase libido and provide a nourishing boost.
Boosts The Immune System
Vitamin C contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism and the maintenance of the normal function of the immune system as well as being an effective antioxidant.
Supports Muscle Function
Calcium, vitamin C, potassium, and iron all contribute to the maintenance of muscle function. They help build and maintain muscle as well as assist in recovery after a workout.
Vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and the full spectrum of B complex vitamins in our Organic Maca Powder help balance and regulate hormones naturally.
Calcium and vitamin c helps the normal function of digestive enzymes and assists in breaking down foods. Digestive enzymes are protein molecules that catalyse the breakdown of large food molecules into smaller molecules to facilitate their absorption by the small intestine.
The minerals and vitamins in our maca root powder help to reduce tiredness and fatigue, as well as contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism which makes maca a great superfood for endurance whilst working out.
Potassium helps maintain normal blood pressure, which aids in the normal arterial and cardiac function not being compromised.
