Contains unique alkaloids, which help stimulate the master glands that in turn may help optimise and balance the entire endocrine (hormone) system.

Maca has a distinctive malt like flavour. Some people like eating it straight as it is by the spoonful.

Grown at 4000m (13000ft) above sea level in the Andrean district of Junin by the Pumpush people who have been cultivating and consuming maca as staple food for thousands of years.

Serving suggestion:
Add 1 to 5 heaped teaspoons of Maca to juices, smoothies or cereals 1 or 2 times a day. Or eaten straight by the spoonful.

Dosage:
For the ancient Incans and modern day Peruvians, especially in the Junin district of the Andes, maca is a staple food. So you can eat as much as you like, the more you eat the more energy and overall vigour you will experience. Maca is non-toxic, has no dangerous side affects and no withdrawal symptoms. So the quantity you can take really depends on what you want to achieve. This is why we make it available at an affordable price so that people can consume it in appropriate quantities and experience the full benefit.

To start off with we recommend 1 teaspoon (if you feel a little queazy in the stomach reduce it to 1/2 a teaspoon for several days until your body adjusts to it). Then you can build up to 5g a day or approximately 1 to 5 teaspoons.

Health benefits of maca:
Maca contains high amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, all the essential amino acids and it contains nearly 60 phytochemicals. The extraordinary health benefits of Maca are due to the way it promotes optimal functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary master glands. Maca contains unique alkaloids that stimulate the master glands, which in turn improves the overall functioning of the endocrine system.

Traditionally, native medicine practitioners and herbalists have recommended maca for :

    * Treating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and depression, as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy [HRT]
    * Stimulating and regulating the endocrine system
    * Regulating and normalizing menstrual cycles
    * Stimulating fertility in both men and women
    * Supporting the immune system
    * Increasing energy, stamina and endurance, reducing chronic fatigue
    * Enhancing libido, treating impotence
    * Revitalising seniors, mentally and physically.

How does maca work?
Maca is essentially an adaptogen and therefore adapts to your bodies metabolism and particular needs to achieve an overall sense of wellbeing and optimal functioning. Through balancing and optimizing the functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary master glands it also balances and optimizes the functioning of the adrenal glands, the thyroid and the pancreas. Because the levels of oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone are optimized this in turn helps regulate ovarian function and enables the adrenals to produce enough hormones to avoid symptoms during menopause.

Due to this overall affect of maca on the hormonal system and high level of protein it also acts as an effective whole food mucsle building agent.

Maca also remineralises the body, due to its high mineral content, making up for the lack of minerals in modern diets and conventionally grown fruit and vegetables. Maca has such a high mineral content due to the soils and environment in which it is grown. The cooperative of indigenous maca growers who grow our maca leave the soil fallow for 5 years after each maca crop so that the soils regenerate completely with minerals.

Note:
We are often asked why our maca costs so much less than other brands. We buy our 100% certified organic maca powder directly from a grower association in Junin, Peru. We pay them a premium price for it and then we put the same markup on the maca as all of the other products we sell and that is how we arrive at the price.

As you can see Australian certified organic have audited the whole production and packaging process assuring you the consumer that our maca is 100% pure, organic and of the highest quality.
