Maca (Lepidium meyenii): An Inca super food that can energize and invigorate you.

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) has been cultivated in the high reaches of the Andes Mountains for at least 2000 years. It holds a cultural significance to the people of the Andes, not only historically as food of wealthy Incas, but also today, as a valuable nutritional resource. Due to little else growing so high up in the mountains, it is used to trade with the low lands for other essentials to their lives, such as rice and green vegetables.

As mentioned, maca is highly nutritional. It contains high amounts of protein, starch, natural sugars, fiber, vitamins, as well as iodine and iron. With so little else growing in the region, it is a vital life line for the native people of the area.

Active Compounds

Other than being highly nutritional, maca also contains p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, a chemical associated with aphrodisiac like qualities.

Finally, maca also contains phenolic and saccharide compounds, these act as antioxidants.

Effects of maca

Maca is known for quite a few effects. Those who ingest it regularly find that they feel the following benefits. Consuming maca improves and increases energy levels and acts as an aphrodisiac.

Preparation, dosage and use of maca.

Generally speaking, the recommended, and most standard dosage is to take 450mg of powder 3 times a day with food or drink. Dried maca root can be eaten as it is, or boiled with water into a drink or porridge. In Peru it is not uncommon to find milk, soda and jam made from maca.

    Sehr Frisch und ne ganze Menge.
    Oh, sehr interessant. Morgens einen halben Teelöffel auf nüchternen Magen. Bis Mittags Power und keinen Hunger. Schmeckt, irgendwie. Kein Knaller aber von Eklig weit entfernt. Also für alle die superfood mögen, oder einfach nur besser drauf sein wollen.


    Dosage quotidien
    Je prends 1g par jour et ressent bien l'effet énergisant. Je recommande !


    Guter Geschmack
    Wenn man es nicht gewohnt sollte man nur eine kleine Menge zu sich nehmen. Ansonsten kann es zu Bauchschmerzen führen.


    une cuillère par jour
    Je n'ai pas noté d'effet et ça colle énormément dans la bouche


    Good product to have good energy


    Très bon maca
    Je recommande bon rapport qualité prix pour les effets :)


    MACA: una scoperta Inca
    Ho acquistato il prodotto per curiosità e devo ammetere che produce una sensazione energetica. Da segnalare che ha un gusto particolare e potrebbe non piacere a tutti.


    Es löst sich zwar nicht vollständig auf, aber schmeckt und eine leichte Wirkung ist auch zu verspüren. Getrunken mit schwarzem Tee mit Milch.


    Très bien
    Bon Maca, bon gout et effet energisant sympatique


    Tolles Produkt!
