Maca Powder comes from the Maca plant which is native to Peru. It is a cruciferous vegetable from the carrot, radish and parsnip family. It has been cultivated and used by the Peruvians for several thousand years, both as a foodstuff and also for its medicinal properties. Maca contains high amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and all the essential amino acids. Maca is an adaptogen so it "adapts" to your body's metabolism and can help you achieve your optimal level of health and energy.
This Maca is of the highest quality, grown in Peru without the use of any pesticides or herbicides. The highest quality maca root tubers are carefully selected and using a careful drying and grinding process, the fine flour/powder is obtained. This ensures the maca retains all its potency and is easy to use. Maca flour doesn't contain any type of preservative, colouring or flavouring. It is 100% natural. We also stock gelatinized maca powder, which is maca powder with the starch removed.
Maca is considered a food and therefore has no set dosages. As a guide, 2 capsules twice a day is recommended. Maca can also be taken in higher doses as required. For those new to Maca, it is recommended to start with smaller doses and increase gradually.
