Maca has become a STAPLE of The Raw Food World and our Gelatinized variety pulls in requests for ‘At Cost’ Specials almost daily!
Maca is a South American root with a rich and storied history that is PACKED with easily bioavailable minerals and plant sterols. It’s no wonder indigenous tribes would eat this before battle as it is a powerful source of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iodine, and so much more.
We get COUNTLESS questions asking about products that aid with Adrenal Fatigue, and every time are so happy to direct people to this amazingly powerful plant. Maca is an Adaptogenic Herb that can aid your body in normalizing Cortisol levels, and reduce stress exhaustion. As an adaptogen, it even helps regulate hormone levels! Maca has been dubbed “Peruvian ginseng,” though it bears no relation to ginseng. But like ginseng, the root increases strength, energy, stamina, libido and sexual function.
We’ve heard customers RAVE about the difference Maca has made with everything from PMS symptoms to low testosterone levels. The beauty of Adaptogens is that they adapt to what YOUR body needs!!
Our Premium Organic Gelatinized Maca is maca with the starch removed, making it more readily absorbable and easier to digest. This process of removing the starches means Gelatinized Maca is not *technically Raw. In taking stock of what our customers really need and ask for however - this is why we wanted to offer this wonderfully bioavailable option to our community!
We still offer the highest quality Maca in many fully Raw varieties for those who prefer it - however Raw Maca contains more starches, so it may be advisable to start with smaller amounts at a time and work your way to higher quantities, giving your body some time to adjust to the starches in Raw Maca. With our Organic Gelatinized Maca, this isn’t an issue.
Some people take Maca alone, with water or juice - but it goes great sprinkled into Nut Butter recipes, with homemade chocolate, it’s absolutely fabulous in smoothies (can give your smoothie a creamy, almost malty component), and some of our warehouse associates even put it in their superfood coffee for a nice nutty flavor and that extra kick!
If you’d like to try our Premium Organic Gelatanized Maca to supercharge your energy, adrenals, and more - it is available NOW for 30% off through the month of February, or while supplies last!!
