Maca is a member of the radish family and is native to the Andes mountains in South America.  For over a thousand years, the local people have enjoyed Maca powder root benefits for women and men, as it's an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. This promotes endurance, vitality, sexual virility and fertility in the human body, and even boosts energy levels..


It is said that the mighty Inca warriors consumed Maca before going to war as they believed it made them fiercely strong by increasing their vitality and stamina! 


Maca powder is usually derived from the root of the plant, which come in four varieties - black, red, cream and purple - each having different properties and benefits. The roots are pulled from the ground and laid out to be sun-dried, after which they are milled into a powder.

Energy & Strength

A 2009 study found that male cyclists who consumed Maca for just fouteen days had improved their performance in a 40km trial. Maca powder was also consumed by the Inca Warriors before battle as it was believed to give them strength & endurance. [2]

Increase Libido

There is evidence that Maca powder can help increase libido in both men and women. A 2010 study showed that those who consumed Maca had a significant increase in their libido within just six weeks. [3,4]

Reduce Anxiety

Chronically high levels of cortisol and adrenaline causes anxiety. Studies have shown Maca to help reduce psychological symptoms related to hormonal imbalances. It does this as it’s an adaptogen which means it naturally helps the body deal with stress. [5,6]

Boost Fertility

Maca was traditionally given to newly weds in Peru due to the amazing fertility benefits. Studies have shown Maca can improve sperm quality, quantity and motility in men. [7,8]

A common sign of hormonal imbalances are acne around the jawline and cheeks. As Maca powder works by balancing hormones it helps with hormonal acne.

Clinical studies have shown that Maca can help reduce symptoms of PMS and menopause. It does this not by stimulating hormonal production but harmonizing the production process. [9]
