Product Information


Maca powder is derived from the root of the maca plant, Lepidium meyenii, a cruciferous vegetable native to the high Andes of Peru. For centuries, maca has been cherished in traditional Andean cultures for its ability to enhance strength, endurance, and stamina. The root is typically dried and ground into a fine powder, which carries a unique nutty and earthy flavor, making it a popular addition to various foods and beverages. Nutritionally, maca powder is a dense powerhouse. It is rich in vitamins, including B vitamins, C, and E, and provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and amino acids. It is particularly noted for its adaptogenic qualities, meaning it helps the body naturally adapt to stressors, including physical and mental strain. In the realm of health and wellness, maca powder is acclaimed for its diverse benefits. It is said to boost energy and endurance, enhance libido, balance hormones, and improve mood. Its popularity as a dietary supplement has grown, especially among athletes and those seeking natural ways to enhance physical and mental performance. Cultivating maca is a tradition that dates back thousands of years in the Andes, often at altitudes above 13,000 feet, making it one of the highest altitude crops in the world. The harsh conditions and high altitudes where maca grows mean that it is naturally organic, as few pests can survive in such environments. This makes maca not only a sustainable crop but also one that supports the traditions and livelihoods of Andean farmers.
