The Vitality Superfood – Raw Organic Maca Root Powder

Ingredients: 100% Organic Raw Maca Root Powder

Feeling fatigue and stressed? Is mental and physical exhaustion draining your energy level? Then Maca Root Powder could be your answer.

Maca is a radish-like tuberous root cultivated and grown in the Andean Mountains of Peru for thousands of years. Maca is well-known for its numerous health benefits and was part of the diet of the ancient Incas of South America years ago.

Today, maca is growing in popularity in countries like Japan, Europe and the United States due to its reputed energizing effects, fertility/libido enhancement and aphrodisiac qualities.

Other traditional uses  include increasing stamina and endurance in athletes, promoting mental clarity, helping with menstrual irregularities and with female hormonal imbalances, including menopause and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Health Benefits of raw Maca Root powder:

√  Raises energy levels, combats mental and physical fatigue & stress

√  Highly nutritious – a wholesome dietary supplement (one glass of tea containing half to 1 tsp of raw maca root has more nutrients than 1 serving of most fruits & vegetables)

√  Stimulates the functioning of the endocrine system in both men and women (maca contains no hormones and is a safe & effective non-estrogenic herb that works to naturally balance your hormone levels)

√  Slows down the process of aging, enhances mental/brain functions

“What I see in maca is a means of normalizing our steroid hormones like testosterone, progesterone and estrogen. Therefore it has the facility to forestall the hormonal changes of aging.”

– Garry P. Gordon, MD, former president of the American College for Advancement in Medicine, now Founder and President of the International College of Advanced Longevity Medicine (Illinois, Chicago).

√  Alleviates the symptoms of menopause by stimulating balanced hormone production

“Whenever possible, I prefer to use maca therapy rather than hormone replacement therapy, because HRT actually ages the body, diminishing the hormone producing capability of the glands. Maca has proven to be very effective with menopausal patients in eliminating hot flashes and depression and in increasing energy levels.”

– Gabriel Cousens, MD, practising internal medicine in Patagonia, Arizona.

√  Increases libido/fertilty and sexual activity

Maca root powder has a distince, nutty, almost butterscotch taste. here are some bevergaes/smoothies which will compliment the taste of maca root:

Add only 1/4 or 1/2 tsp if you wish for the maca flavour to be very mild. Experiment it for yourself.

Recommended daily serving: 1/2 to 1 teaspoons (4g)

Start with 1/2 teaspoon then work your way up gradually. Take 1 week off after every month of usage on order to keep the body responsive to its phytonutrients. Not recommended for children under the age of 3 and pregnant women.
