Live Superfoods Raw Organic Black Maca Powder, 12 oz

What is Maca Powder?

Maca powder comes from Maca root, a Peruvian root vegetable packed with nutrients that grows in the mountain plateaus of the Andes. The Maca root is rich in amino acids, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants. In particular, Maca root is rich in calcium, potassium, and trace elements such as iron, iodine, copper, manganese, and zinc.

Our organic, raw Black Maca Powder is made up of roots dried at low-temperatures and then ground into a powder, with nothing else added. Just pure, powdered, Maca root.

What Does Maca Root Do?

Maca has been used as both a food source and a medicinal herb ever since the Incan's gave it to their warriors and royalty. Maca was, and still is, considered a potent plant for delivering enhanced energy, stamina, and endurance. The first recorded knowledge of Maca being used as a medicinal herb goes back to the 17th century, and today research is supporting these energy enhancing claims.

In total, more than 160 studies on the health effects of Maca have been indexed by the United States National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.

What are the benefits of Maca?

Maca's health benefits, as reported over centuries of use, include:

  • • Increased energy and stamina
  • • Increased fertility in males and females
  • • Increased libido in males and females
  • • Increased tolerance to stress (adaptogenic herb)
  • • Immune system support
  • • Natural anti-depressant/ mood lifting properties
  • • Natural blood glucose support

What is Black Maca?

Maca root varies in size, shape, and color. The color of the Maca root extends to the peel only, and this peel color is used to differentiate between Maca varieties. Cream, or yellow, Maca is named for its cream color peel, red Maca is named for its pinky, beet-red color peel, and black Maca is named for its inky-blue color peel. Each Maca color variety is considered a genetically unique variety of the root vegetable, with different and unique nutritional and therapeutic properties.


Interesting fact : The color extends only to the surface of the peel, and not into the flesh of the root vegetable itself. All Maca root powders have the same, creamy yellow-beige appearance, regardless of the color variety.


Benefits of Black Maca

The benefits of Black Maca root include the same energy and fertility enhancing properties that all Maca root varieties share. Studies are showing that Black Maca also has some unique properties that include:

  • • Higher levels of natural iodine
  • • Considered the strongest for energy and stamina enhancement
  • • Improved memory
  • • Improved learning
  • • Protective effects on bones in females without estrogenic effects
  • • Increased sperm count and sperm mobility in males

Using Maca

While some people select a Maca variety based on the unique health benefits that variety provides, many people choose a variety of Maca based on the flavor. All Maca varieties have a malty, earthy-flavor with a warm, almost vanilla-like aroma. Some varieties may have a slightly more sweet or maple-butterscotch flavor than others. The best way to find your preferred variety of Maca? Taste test until you find the one that makes your taste-buds swoon.

The flavors and aroma of Maca matches up perfectly with flavors like mesquite, carob, cacao, and nut butters. Prepare a superfood smoothie, add Maca to baked or unbaked treats, create your own raw super-food energy bar, or create divine desserts like Maca ice cream or raw Maca-cacao truffles.

Maca powder can be mixed into juices, smoothies, or water. Our pure Maca powder has no additives, so it may leave behind a few clumps when being mixed with just water. Most Maca fans prefer the "smoothie" method, but your Maca uses are limited only by your imagination!
