Maca Root Powder
Maca Root (Lepidium Meyenii) Gelatinised. Maca is known as an adaptogen, part of the cruciferous vegetable family, due to its supernatural properties it is considered one of the world’s natural “Super-Foods” or should I say “Super-Roots.” The most well-known benefit of Maca Root is its potential to increase libido.

In addition, this well-researched ancient root provides a great Superfood Boost! This Peruvian root vegetable has been cultivated for centuries by the indigenous population of the Andes.

Maca doesn't stop there, research and you'll find it effective for bone health, energy levels, and thyroid health. Gelatinised Maca is Maca Root Powder the dried roots are boiled and pressurised to to remove most of the starch content (nothing is added). This concentrates the active ingredients and makes it more water soluble as well as easier for the body to assimilate. Our Maca Root Powder is never heated above 105F / 40C.

Guidelines to Consider: As Maca is a root vegetable in the Radish family, it can safely be taken in small amounts daily. You can’t overdose, but… – Maca is a food and not a drug, herb or supplement. Some people report increased heart rate and nervous energy when they take too much. That’s why it is highly recommended you should start with a conservative amount and work your way up slowly.
You must consider your body weight - When you’re starting with Maca, you need to consider how much you weigh as an important factor in determining your dosage. The dosage levels we recommend below are for people who weigh 160 pounds (75 KG). Heavier people can generally take more. Smaller people should start with a smaller amount.
You should also consider your overall health and age – After factoring in your weight, also reflect on your overall level of health and your age. A 30 year old athlete can start taking a higher Maca dosage than a 75 year old retiree. The younger and healthier you are the more you can start with.
Maca affects different people differently – Even factoring in age, health and body weight, it’s important to remember that Maca has different effects on different people. No two bodies are exactly alike and since Maca is an adaptogen it will act in your body to support what your body needs to balance – especially in terms of your hormonal system.
You can adjust quantities as needed – One thing that we do often here is to adjust the amount of Maca we take depending on how much extra energy we want, or how far we have come along in our health goals. Sometimes we’ll even stop taking Maca for a few days, when we feel like a break – more on that in a minute.
Therapeutic Maca dosage is different than general health dosage – One final consideration is that recommended dosages of Maca for therapeutic purposes are generally higher than for general health. For example if you are taking Maca specifically to help with fertility, you will want to boost your intake over time.
