What Makes Our Maca So Special?

Our Maca is grown at 4200m above sea level in Junin, Peru. We purchase direct from the indigenous farmers who have been growing Maca in that region since before recorded time. The farmers sun dry the Maca and then ground into a fine powder, at no point are any fillers or additives used. It is guaranteed premium quality and comes to you certified organic so you know it is free of pesticides, herbicides and radiation.

Please be careful who you buy your Maca from. A lot of Peruvian Maca is now being shipped from China and the quality may be compromised. Our Maca is guaranteed to come direct from the growers in Peru.

Maca has been 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.

In 2015 1,300 tons of Maca was exported around the world. Recent scientific research demonstrates Maca's ability to impart energy, to balance and assist the hormone system and to act as a natural aphrodisiac (particularly for men). It also contains a huge amount of nutrients, minerals and all essential amino acids.

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).

Maca as a mood enhancer

A study published in 2006 looked at the effects of all three Maca types on mood and depression. The researchers concluded that "all varieties of Maca showed antidepressant activity" (read full 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.


Simply Amazing!! I don't know how I survived before I used this product. I have got about 10 people from my office using it now,

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.

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 alternative to erectile medicine

Known as a great tool for men to enhance sperm count and improve sexual function, Maca has began to be known as nature's alternative to erectile medicine. Several studies have shown Maca to have a positive effect on sexual dysfunction

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 Sexual Health

Maca has also been used traditionally to help improve male sexual health. 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 sexual health.

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).

What Colour Maca?

Maca is a root vegetable similar in appearance to sweet potato. Like Sweet Potato, it comes in a few different colour varieties (but once it is grounded they all look more or less the same).

Maca root is available in Yellow, Red and Black and each colour appears to have slightly different strengths in terms of the benefits it provides:


Yellow Maca: The 'standard' Maca taken for overall health benefits, hormone balancing (women), etc.
Black Maca: Research has shown that this Maca is the best for improving sexual health in men and women and for combating fatigue - buy now.
Red Maca: This Maca has been demonstrated to be the most effective at improving prostate health and protecting the skin against sun damage - buy now.

Whilst different colours have been shown to have different strengths, the most important quality when choosing Maca is the way in which it is dried and the altitude at which it is grown. We guarantee to have the best quality Maca available in Australia.
