Maca is a herbaceous plant native to the high Andean Mountains of Bolivia and Peru. It is one of the only food plants in the world able to thrive at such a high altitude. Maca, and more specifically the root of the plant, has a long history as a superfood. The maca root was prized throughout the Incan empire for its adaptogenic-like qualities that enable it to nourish and balance the body’s delicate endocrine system, and to help cope with stress. It also energizes naturally, without the jitters and crashes of caffeine, and it can aid in reproductive function, helping to balance hormones and increase fertility. Navitas Naturals Maca Powder is the raw and natural form of this special root.
After harvesting only the finest maca roots, they are slow-dried and gently milled at low temperatures to preserve the natural integrity of the food. Gelatinized maca powder is a concentrated form. To create it, the starch is extracted, which makes this superfood more digestible and the nutrients more bioavailable for increased absorption. Navitas Naturals Gelatinized Maca powder is certified organic, kosher, gluten-free and vegan.
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).
Maca is most often regarded as a powerful stamina booster, libido enhancer, hormone regulator and exhaustion buster. Unique alkaloids found in maca, called Macainas, have been shown to nourish and support the endocrine system, which regulates many of the body’s important functions.* Maca also provides an abundance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and sterols that can support general health and immune function.*
