- Our Raw Organic Maca Powder comes from Junin, Peru. Grown at 4,100m above sea level in the Andes, Maca is the energising and revitalising superfood of the Incas, where it is revered for its aphrodisiac qualities and wide-ranging benefits to the hormonal system. The Pumpush people of Peru have been cultivating and consuming Maca as a staple food for thousands of years.
Maca contains high amounts of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, all the essential amino acids to make a complete protein (maca has a whopping 14% protein content), and nearly 60 phytochemicals. The extraordinary health benefits of Maca are due to the way it promotes optimal functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary master glands. Maca contains unique alkaloids that stimulate the master glands, which in turn improves the overall functioning of the endocrine system.
- Add 1 to 5 heaped teaspoons of maca to your favourite juice, smoothie or cereal 1 or 2 times a day.
For the ancient Incans and modern day Peruvians, especially in the Junin district of the Andes, Maca is a staple food. So you can eat as much as you like - the more you eat, the more energy and overall vigour you will experience. Maca is non-toxic, has no dangerous side affects and no withdrawal symptoms. So the quantity you can take really depends on how much hormonal rebalancing you need.
We recommend starting with 1 teaspoon per day, then increasing up to 5 teaspoons depending on your weight and hormonal balancing requirements.

- "My cycles have become noticeably more regular since taking Maca. They used to be uneven, and sometimes painful. Since taking a teaspoon a day, they've honestly improved markedly. Who would've thought?! Thanks so much."

"Maca helped me get pregnant! I had read that Maca was really good for fertility (and libido). I wasn't sure how much to believe, but we'd been trying for a while and nada. So I started taking Maca, and a few months later we fell pregnant. Amazing! Unbelievable. I've heard lots of other positive stories like this too, so can't recommend to other women highly enough."
