Maca is a potent, ancient Peruvian superfood used by indigenous Andean societies as a source of nourishment and healing for thousands of years. To make Navitas Naturals Maca Powder, our farming partners hand-select the finest maca roots, which are gently dried and milled at low temperatures. This careful process preserves the complex nutrition of this superfood.

Benefits

Peruvian folklores tell of maca being used in the Tahuantinsuyo Empire by warriors to increase their strength and endurance. The maca root has potent adaptogenic properties helping each body differently based on individual needs. Unique alkaloids found in maca, called Macainas, have been shown to nourish and support the endocrine system. Maca also provides an abundance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and sterols.

Nutrition

Spanish conquistadors recorded in their journals that when they arrived at the puna of Junin in Peru, the babies were well-fed and adults were tall, attributing these characteristics to the diet of maca. The Quechua Indians in the central highlands of Peru continue to consider maca a highly nutritious food with a range of physical benefits and they include it as a regular staple in their diet. Navitas Naturals Maca Powder is loaded with nutritious vitamins, minerals, amino acids and plant sterols, including vitamins B1, B2, B, C, D, E, iron, potassium, copper, magnesium, selenium, phosphorous and calcium. It's a fiber-rich food and a good source of plant protein (about ten percent). Maca root is also a source of fatty acids, and it contains four unique alkaloids (Macaina 1, 2, 3 and 4).

Culinary

In the mountainous regions where maca comes from, it is a regular staple in the diet and is often eaten boiled and sliced, similar to potato chips. A popular preparation of maca is ‘watia’, a traditional method of cooking with a hole dug underground and filled with layers of maca and hot coals to roast the roots. Other preparations include use as a gruel with milk, and cooked with potatoes, apples, oats, quinoa or fava beans. The roots are also toasted and ground to prepare a maca coffee-like beverage, and fermented cooked and mashed to make a mild homemade beer. Some Peruvians prefer the boiled roots with water, milk, honey and cinnamon. Today, it is possible to find a wide range of products infused with maca, including whiskey, wine, ice cream and cosmetics.

Navitas Naturals Maca Powder has a pungent and sweet nutty taste with hints of butterscotch flavor. It can be mixed easily into smoothies, shakes and juices for a flavorful and healthy boost, and it can also be added to desserts and baked goods. Add some to your favorite pancake batter to create an energizing breakfast.

I had tried this product about six months ago because since my second child, my lady juices hadn\'t been quite what they use to be. It fixed all that and MORE! It has helped with my focus, attitude and energy. I love it! I would mix it with Orange Juice and down it. Some times the taste was a little rough so this time i am going to try the capsules. I\'ll keep you posted!
Decent product/Bad taste

I havent had the chance to routinely use this product so i cant say that i have noticed any benefits to taking it. Im assuming i have to take it everyday to get the sexual benefits i was hoping for. I mix it in my smoothies or my homemade granola bars, or some spice bread. But if you use too much, you can certainly taste it. And it doesnt taste good, thats forsure!! I tried to just mix it with some water and downing it, but i was horrible, i ended up gagging on it.

This stuff works!!! For all you menopausal women out there, this is the magic bullet. No more hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, dryness problems and all the other symptoms of menopause and Peri-menopause. Before using Maca I was having severe hot flashes one every couple of hours. I tried Estroven, and it did help but only in that it decreased the hot flashes by a couple of hours and made them a little less intense. When I first tried the Maca, it made a huge difference right away but then after a month on the product, no more hot flashes or night sweats. Love this stuff!

This product actually works. It took a couple of wks. for me to feel the difference, but be patient, it will kick in. Like having the sex drive from years ago.

I ordered MACA powder from this site because it was raw, organic and not genetically altered. Finding products in this clean form is difficult, always additives. This was my first order but I can guarantee it wont be my last. Great service too!

Can't rate its "functional" reputation ... yet, too new. But it did arrive promptly and was pkg'd very well.

I RECEIVED MY ORDER AS PROMISED AND WAS SURPRISED TO SEE THAT THE POWDER WAS NOT DISGUSTING TASTING AS OTHERS EXPLAINED. I WAS CAUTIOUS USING THE PRODUCT AT FIRST FOR FEAR OF INSOMNIA WHICH NEVER DEVELOPED. RATHER I FOUND THAT AFTER MY WORKOUT AT THE GYM I WOULD APPLY THE POWDER (1tbl) TO MY BLENDER WITH ICE, WHEY PROTEIN POWDER, 1 EGG, CAYENNE POWDER (1tsp), FAT FREE MILK, POWDERED GINGER ROOT (1tsp). I RECEIVE ENOUGH ENERGY AND A RENEWED VIGOR LOST FOR SOME TIME. ALSO I FEEL THAT IT HAS SPARKED MY BODY'S NATURAL HGH AND ALLOWED ME TO SEE ACCEPTABLE RESULTS FROM MY EFFORTS IN THE GYM. IT DOES HOWEVER LIVE UP TO THE PROMISE OF INCREASED STAMINA, LIBIDO & A FEELING OF WELL BEING WHICH IS A WELCOME COMPARED TO FATIGUE BEING 55 YRS OF AGE. I WILL CONTINUE TO USE THIS PRODUCT UNTIL THESE FEELINGS CHANGE. GOOD LUCK TO YOU SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO PARTAKE IN THIS INCA WARRIOR BEVERAGE.

I've been using Maca Powder for several years. I put it in my protein shakes and believe it enhances my energy level.

I have been taking the product for about 8 or 9 days now and have just increased the dosage in an attempt to maximize it's effects. There is a definite energy pop throughout the day adding it to my daily oatmeal smoothie.

I rad in a health book that Maca helps libido which mine has gone away since my second trimester of pregnancy. It's been a year and a half and my libido still isn't back, so I'm starting out with 2 tsp a day, and I will let you know how it goes. Today is day 1

Maca powder tastes great and is good for you. I eat 3 tablespoons everyday.

This is the most disgusting thing I ever took - The best way to take it is to mix it with something carbonated and just "down it" - but it works - my libido is up and so is my stregnth. I'll continue on it....

I have found the Maca Powder does not agree with me. It seems to have caused gastric reflux and insomina with only using 1/8 tsp.

i had a recipe that included in it,maca powder,which i did not have, and found on your web site. i ordered it & it came quickly. i've been using it ever since. it is suppose to have many benefits and i use it in a number of things now that i know about it. i even include it in my sprouted buckwheat granola and green juice every morning. it seems to blend with any flavor so pretty much goes undetected. thanks

I tryed this product several ways and the best is in a chocolate milk shake however after many times drinking it I no longer can tolerate the smell of the powder. I would prefer to take it in a capsule form.
