Navitas Naturals Maca Powder, 16oz, Raw, Organic


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 raw maca roots, which are gently dried and milled at low temperatures.

This careful process preserves the complex nutrition of the raw superfood.

Spanish conquistadors recorded in their journals that when they arrived at the puna of Junin in Peru, the babies were well-fedand 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.

Maca is a nutritionally dense super-food that contains high amounts of minerals, vitamins, enzymes and all of the essential amino acids.

Maca root is rich in B-vitamins for energy, is a vegetarian source of B-12, and has high levels of calcium and magnesium.

Maca root helps balance our hormones when they are out of balance due to environmental estrogens.

It stimulates and nourishes the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, the master glands of the body.

These glands regulate other glands, bringing  into balance the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands.

Maca root has been shown to be beneficial for all sorts of hormonal problems including PMS, menopause, and hot flashes.

Maca's also a fertility enhancer and is best known for improving libido and sexual function, especially in men.

Hormones regulate many things including mood, growth, sexual development, and tissue function.

Hormones also play a role in many diseases, like cancer and depression.

Navitas Naturals Maca Powder works as an adaptogen which means that it responds our bodies' different needs.

If you're producing too much of one type of hormone, maca will regulate the production downward. However, if you're producing too little, it'll increase production.
