The root vegetable Lepidium meyenii (maca) is a member of the cruciferous family that also includes broccoli, cauliflower and kale. In the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains where our maca root is grown, the harsh environment has shaped this superfood to be tough enough to withstand any environmental challenge. It passes its strength on to you. The roots are carefully selected, then washed before they are cut, cooked, dried and made ready for milling.
Organika’s Organic Maca Powder undergoes a specialized procedure called gelatinization. Despite the name, this procedure does not involve gelatin in any form; it consists of splitting large starch chains into smaller molecules. This leads to a much smoother, less gritty experience for you. The additional slow cooking in our gelatinization methods may enhance the availability of some nutrients and minerals. Even the natives of Peru cook or heat process their maca in some manner for better digestibility and increased benefits.
It is widely recognized that maca can help to support the emotional aspects of sexual health and libido, which are vital for fertility and a healthy sex life. It lowers inflammation while efficiently invigorating, boosting and elevating a healthy lifestyle.
In women, maca supplementation has been studied to help normalize the symptoms of premenstrual/menstrual symptoms as well as the symptoms of menopause including hot flashes, night sweats, cramps, fatigue and lethargy. Stress levels and emotional states are also balanced. Maca supports healthy bone structure, which can decrease with age and lowering estrogen levels.
