Product Description

Details

WHAT IS MACA ROOT?
Our Maca powder is sourced directly from the Maca root or Lepidium meyenii, the ancient Peruvian plant from the Brassicaceae family. This plant grows in the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains in Peru and it has been part of the human diet since ancient times. Dating back more than 2,000 years ago, it has been used as a therapeutic agent, primarily as an aphrodisiac. And while the evidence is strong in support of this function, Maca boasts several other potential health benefits.
The earthy yet tangy supplement is cultivated from the Maca root which is found in a multitude of different colors such as white, pink, yellow, and black. Although the leaves of the Maca plant can be eaten, it is the root that contains a diverse nutritional profile. It is harvested in the early spring, dried, transported and rinsed thoroughly without the use of any chemicals. The plants are then ground into a fine, nutritionally-dense powder before being transported for packaging.

BENEFITS OF MACA ROOT POWDER
Maca powder is a prized source of several important vitamins and minerals such as vitamins C and B6, iron, potassium and copper. It also contains phytonutrients such as polyphenols. In addition, our Maca powder also provides a source of slow-digesting carbs which make it a great addition to your morning or pre-workout smoothie.
The most well-studied benefit of Maca powder is the enhancement and increases seen in Libido. This effect is proposed to act through some other mechanism than altering of hormonal (testosterone) responses demographics! (1). For example, in one study supplementation of Maca powder for 12 weeks resulted in heightened perceived Libido in healthy adult men (2). In a smaller study the supplementation of Maca for two weeks in trained cyclists, resulted in elevated levels of perceived Libido (3).
Research of the benefits of Maca powder is currently ongoing as its use as a therapeutic agent is a relatively new trend despite being a part of the human diet for centuries. However, recent studies have purported a potential beneficial effect on several symptoms related to menopause in women. In a small review, Maca was shown to contribute to the alleviation of ‘hot flashes’ experienced during menopause although more research is required here (4). Maca has also been reported to play a role in the alleviation of symptoms of anxiety and depression in some populations, and may improve mood (5,6).
