Raw Organically Grown Maca Powder 1 lb

SKU: KM05

Maca is a nutritious root of ancestral consumption from the heart of the Cordillera de los Andes Mountain range of Peru. Maca grows in an inhospitable region of intense sunlight, violent winds, and below-freezing weather. With its extreme temperatures and poor, rocky soil; yet, over the centuries, maca has evolved to flourish under these conditions. Maca was domesticated about 2,000 years ago by the Incas, and primitive cultivars of maca have been found in archaeological sites dating as far back as 1600 B.C. Because of it's powerful nourishing properties it was one of the most important resources for nourishment in pre-Inkan and Inkan times. Not only was Maca used for human consumption by the nobles but also for offerings for their Apus. Shamans Market Maca is a superior, organically grown (non-certified), raw food.

  • Maca's nutritional properties are incredible. Maca contains... tons of amino acids, including all the essential and many non-essential amino acids (a more-than-complete protein). Maca has high concentrations of B vitamins (which are often hard to come by in a vegetarian diet).Maca's nutritional properties are incredible. Maca contains... tons of amino acids, including all the essential and many non-essential amino acids (a more-than-complete protein). Maca has high concentrations of B vitamins (which are often hard to come by in a vegetarian diet). Maca has incredible mineral richness, most notably with high levels of calcium (but also magnesium, phosphorous, etc.). Importantly, maca has a wide and balanced mineral profile. Minerals notoriously need other minerals in order to be absorbed well in the body (which is why calcium and iron supplements are so useless), and maca is one of few vegetarian foods (along with wheatgrass, spirulina, sea weed, etc.) that has the kind of broad spectrum and concentration of minerals to allow for total absorption of all the minerals. In addition, maca has a rare chemical (not an alkaloid) that allows for a tremendous increase in calcium absorption across the board. Not to mention tons of vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants.In addition to the calcium-absorption properties mentioned, maca has a property that helps dramatically in the digestion of carbohydrates, which is vital to the starch-rich diet of the Andes. Maca is an adaptogen, meaning it works with the body to either raise or lower many metabolic functions based on what the body needs. In other words, it is impossible to over-dose with maca, because the plant can adjust up or down. Maca has been shown to feed the endocrine system (which is like the physical body version of the chakras). In the Andes, maca is also used as a general tonic for strength, circulation, and overall well-being. Because maca feeds the life-force-related adrenal glands, many Andeans drink maca in the morning. Though it is NOT a stimulant, the effect is a natural wake up call to the whole organism.It is easily blended into water or juice. Maca, as a food and a medicine, is usually added to water, juices, cereal, or even baked goods, but can also be taken just by the spoonful.The advantage of Shamans Market Maca is that it is 100% raw. As the raw foodists know, nutrient-rich plants are most effective when consumed raw as the activist enzymes of the plants themselves remain intact. Cooking destroys enzymes, and also a lot of vitamins and anti-oxidants. Almost all the maca on the market in Peru is toasted.  This maca is totally raw, making this much easier to digest and much more effectively absorbed into the body. It is also the single tastiest maca I've ever had, slightly sweet, slightly malty, and with a slight spiciness in the end (maca is a relative of the radish). It is a very tasty addition to juices or just to plain water. Click here for more information on Maca The statements contained herein have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
