Promotes stress reduction, healthy energy, and increased libido*
Maca has been used traditionally for centuries to alleviate occasional stress, improve energy and vitality, and increase libido in both men and women.* Gaia Herbs Maca Powder uniquely captures the benefits of Maca root, starting with certified organic plants that were grown and cultivated high in the Peruvian Andes, then harvested and dried under the intense Andean sun. The Maca is steam and pressure extracted-through a process known as gelatinization-to remove the starch and concentrate the active constituents. This results in a purer and more easily digestible product than raw maca powder. Note: This product is 100% vegetarian. "Gelatinization" does not involve the use of gelatin.
- Certified Organic
- Concentrated for optimal digestibility & absorption*
How to Take Maca Powder
Adults take 1 teaspoon daily. Dissolves easily in water or juice. You can also add it to smoothies, mix it with yogurt, or sprinkle it into your morning oatmeal. Enjoy!
Like all tonifying herbs, Maca needs to be taken on an on-going basis in order to exert its adaptogenic effect. Make sure to follow the suggested usage of 5 grams (1 teaspoon) daily.
Because the starch has been removed, Gaia Herbs Maca Powder dissolves easily in water or juice. It has an almond flavor that is pleasant or neutral.
What is Maca?
Maca is an herb that grows high in the Andes of Peru, where it has traditionally been used, since Pre-Incan times, to support a healthy stress response, promote energy and vitality, and increase libido in both men and women. It is known as "Peruvian Ginseng," not because it is actually related to American or Asian Ginseng, but because it is thought to have many of the same qualities. Both Ginseng and Maca are adaptogens, meaning they help the body adapt to stress and strengthen the vital essence.
Modern research into Maca's traditional uses is ongoing. A recent study found the herb is truly adaptogenic, in that it supports the body's efforts towards homeostasis, even in the face of occasional stress.
