Maca is a classic adaptogen famous for its ability to support energy levels. New benefits of maca are constantly being discovered, such as its potent effects on the endocrine system and mood.
The indigenous peoples of Peru have benefited from maca’s energy-enhancing properties for many years. But did you know Peruvian natives have utilized maca to improve childrens’ performance in the classroom?
Maca may improve brain function, particularly learning and memory. Researchers are still unsure of how maca achieves this, but it is likely that maca’s restorative and adaptogenic effects on the adrenals manifest in better cognition and mood.
For supporting cognition and relieving depression, one study actually found black maca to be the most effective compared to all the other maca varieties. Several studies have also found that maca also has potent anxiolytic or anxiety-relieving effects, particularly in menopausal women.
Black maca is also famous in the athletic world. This adaptogen is quite popular among bodybuilders and serious athletes, and for good reason: one study conducted amongst male cyclists found that maca extract improved their cycling time and performance. Maca is clearly a valuable addition to any active lifestyle.
Our Maca is a potent, concentrated dual extract - not merely ground up raw herb. Through our extraction process, the active constituents are extracted from our Organic Black Maca, and then concentrated to a 10 to 1 ratio. This means that TEN pounds of whole Maca is concentrated down into one pound of extract. This results in far more potency, bio-availability, and efficacy in less space.
We have had a relationship with our distributor for many years, and not only know exactly where our herbs grow, but ensure the purity and potency with 3rd party lab testing. We are involved in every step of the process and proud to take the extra effort to ensure the quality so you don’t have to. Our products are grown organically, extracted purely, and secured in their respective packaging without the use of any fillers.
