Overview

Revered for centuries for assisting in increased strength

Described as a powerful aphrodisiac for men

High in protein for overall muscle health

Contains a range of vitamins and minerals needed for health

Used to boost mood and general health

Known for promoting healthier hair and skin

Used in traditional eastern medicine for millennia

The ancient Incans used maca root as far back as two thousand years ago, when it was revered not only as a staple crop, but as a potent medicinal herb. Folktales about this high nutrient food describe how Incan warriors consumed large quantities of the product before going into battle to increase energy and strength.

Today it is consumed throughout the world for it's ability to impart energy, to balance and assist the hormone system and is even known as a fantastic aphrodisiac, whilst containing a huge amount of nutrients, minerals and all the essential amino acids.

Proven By Science: Research published in 2009 measured cycling improvements in athletes over a 14 day period of taking Maca. The researchers concluded that Maca "supplementation improved 40 km cycling time trial performance" (Stone, Ibarra, et al. 2009 - full journal article).

An incredible way to balance and nurture hormones

Rather than providing hormones to the body, Maca acts an an adaptogen, meaning it responds to each body differently. If a particular hormone is being produced too much, maca will regulate the body to produce less. And if the body is producing not enough, it bumps up production.

Proven By Science: In 2005 researchers performed a 9 month study of Maca's effect on female hormones. The conclusion was that Maca acts as a toner of hormonal processes and that it is a serious potential alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (Meissner, Kapcynszki et al. 2005 - read full article).

Maca stimulates and nurtures the hypothalamus and pituitary glands (named the master glands) of the body, which in turn regulate the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands. Sexual development, tissue function, mood & growth are all dependent on a healthy hormonal balance, and Maca is incredible in it's ability to do achieve just that.

Maca has been traditionally used by herbalists to treat PMS problems, menopause, hot flushes, increasing energy & endurance and for the treatment of depression rather than using hormone replacement therapy.

Proven By Science: In a double-blind study published in The Journal Of The North American Menopause Society, Maca was found to reduce depression and anxiety in post-menopausal women and to also improve sexual dysfunction (full journal article).

A nutrient & mineral dense food

This organic super food delivers a beneficial amount of plant-based protein and around 8% of maca is dietary fiber. A number of important fatty acids and essential amino acids (of which 18 out of 20 are present) are also present. Maca also contains energy boosting and immune revatalising Vitamins B1, 2, and 3, along with small quantities of C, E, and B6.

Maca as a sexual stimulant & "natural viagra"

Known as a great tool for men to enhance fertility and improve sexual function, Maca has become to be known as "nature's viagra". Several studies have shown Maca to have a positive effect on sexual dysfunction

Proven By Science: A double-blind study found that people with diagnosed erectile dysfunction showed significant improvements when taking just 3g a day of Maca. Libido also markably improved (Dording, Fisher, et al. 2008 - full journal article).

Maca For Fertility
Maca has also been used traditionally to help improve male fertility. As far back as 1653 a writer by the name of Father Cobo noted that he had seen first hand how this incredible super food could improve fertility.

Proven By Science: A study published by the University of Peru found that Maca improved the sperm count and testicular weight of rats when given daily doses over 14 days (Gonzales, Ruiz, et al. 2001 - full journal article).

Organic Maca powder review
Carsten P. 21 January 2014
My wife and I changed our view on food a year ago which changed our lifestyle.
We now mostly eat vegtables, fruit, legumes and grains with limited meat, perhaps 1-2 times a week.
We will have a green morning and afternoon smoothie with leafy greens, veg, fruit and supplements such as Maca Powder, the added Maca gives heaps of energy before my morning training session and through the day.
since changing our lifestyle we have become fitter and slimmer with sustained energy through the day. I have not had a cold which I would have 1 or 2 of normally and my sinus problems have disappeared along with 40 years of headaches that came from it.
Go green.

Maca Powder
Fiona B. 21 January 2014
I recently bought some Maca powder, and it was of the usual standard quality i am used to, but it was slightly cheaper. I will be back for more.
69yo, almost Vegan.
Graham B. 21 January 2014
Not sure. I got on to Maca, from Teresa Cutter, the Healthy Chef, so I'm biased. I do what she suggests. that means everything. As for me since I have embraced Whole Food vegetable/fruit in juices and Smoothies, I have lost 21kg, from 125kg over the last 3 months. How do I feel, great, full of energy. After poor mobility due to hip replacement surgery, plus heart, reflux, diabetes, and blood pressure tablets, which I no longer need to take. You take for granted health, and You know when you lose it, so I'm back. get of the ground easily, go up hills without tiring or breathing heavily, ablutions, better still no Muffin Tops. I look good, as I'm told often. So you see I use everything, Ginger, Turmeric, Maca, Cocao, Parsley, Mint, Cinnamon, Lemon, and WPI, so I'm pretty sure Maca works in some way.

Organic Maca Powder Review
Renee 14 August 2013
Maca is my favorite of all superfoods. It is great in smoothies, biscuits, anything really. I really enjoy the flavour a teaspoon of Maca adds to my greek yoghurt, super yummy & instant energy boost. It also keeps my hormnes in check with reality! The Organic Maca Powder from cheapsuperfoods.com is my favourite brand for quality & price. Love it!

Kylie 30 July 2013
Although it took over a week to get my products i have to say adding maca to my smoothie this morning gave it a yummy caramel taste. Taste very good. Very happy with this product and so are my children
Easy to add to your diet
Sarah 21 July 2013
I have ordered many different superfoods to try. I found Maca was one of the easiest to add to my foods as it is a mild flavour - for some reason it reminds me of malt powder. I like to add it to yoghurt, smoothies, mix it in with cottage cheese....
