Our high grade, four root maca blend is gelatinized for increased bioavailability and may be used to assist energy production, as well as to improve mental clarity. As an adaptogen, maca helps the body to resist stress and balance hormones.
Monkey’s Organic Maca Powder is a gelatinized blend of 4 phenotypes of maca root (25% yellow, 25% black, 25% purple and 25% red), cultivated at high altitude in the Peruvian Andes. A maca blend is superior to a single root product, as it contains an abundance of secondary phytonutrients, unique to each different root.
Maca (Lepidium Meyenii) is the highest altitude growing plant in the world and has been used by native Indians in Peru as a vital health ingredient for thousands of years. The plant absorbs nutrients from the mountains in which it grows, making it an extremely mineral and nutrient rich superfood. Maca is an adaptogen and primarily acts on the endocrine system, working directly on the hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal glands to rejuvenate, increase mental clarity and improve your ability to manage stress.
The abundance of phytonutrients, EFAs, vitamins and minerals within maca, help to oxygenate the blood, increase energy, assist neurotransmitter function and support optimal levels of growth hormone, DHEA, progesterone and estrogen.
Continuing research focuses on maca’s ability to reduce enlarged prostate glands, promote muscle hypertrophy, improve sperm production, motility and volume, improve mood, decrease anxiety and treat PMS in women.
