Organic Red Maca is particularly special in the world of super powders.

Organic raw red maca powder is an ancient food cultivated in the Andes, it is sometimes referred to as ‘Peruvian Ginseng’.  Maca is ideal for anyone with a busy lifestyle where work, parenting, exercise and stress all deplete the body.  Maca has a rich nutrient content, including B vitamins, calcium, zinc, iron and iodine.

Maca roots come in a range of colours. The colour doesn’t change the look or taste of the maca powder but signifies different phytonutrients and antioxidants.  Red maca powder is ground down from pinkish red roots and is higher in some antioxidant compounds than yellow and black maca.  All maca types hold unique health benefits based on their specific compounds. We also stock organic yellow maca and organic black maca.

Organic standards are highly controlled so  you can be sure there are no bulking agents or heating involved in the processing of the powder. Our organic red maca powder is raw and goes through a careful and gentle processing system to retain the optimum nutritional content of the root.

Our organic raw red maca powder is from a family run farm in Peru.  It is dried naturally in the sun for 10-15 days and covered at night to avoid frost and rain.  Before it is packed it is put through rigorous testing set by the organic board in Peru.  Once in powder form it is packed in air tight bags and stored in cool dry conditions protected from light and moisture.

One serving (1 teaspoon – 5g) of organic red maca is high in fibre, copper and a source of Vitamin C.  Both of these essential nutrients are needed to protect cells from oxidative stress and for normal function of the immune system.

How to take Maca: Start with one teaspoon daily and build up to 3tsp (15g).  Maca is a rich nutrient dense powder, it is advised to increase servings slowly.
