Maca root, known as Peruvian ginseng, is traditionally consumed to boost energy/stamina, increase fertility & improve libido. The ancient Incan warriors consumed Maca as a staple food and before they marched into battles. In modern time, Maca has been used as a natural herb to rebalance hormones, alleviate menopause/andropause symptoms (hot flashes, anxiety, etc) and for sports performance. Maca root nourishes and rejuvenates the endocrine (hormonal) system, thus balancing naturally the production of hormones in the body. Maca does not contain hormones. It is nutrient-dense with over 60 phytonutrients, and is a wholesome supplement to your daily diet. Suitable for all ages.
Gelatinized Maca powder does not refer to a mixture of Maca powder and gelatin, as some would think. Gelatinization refers to the process of breaking down starch chains in the Maca root (by pre-cooking the roots under controlled temperature conditions), thus making the root powder more easily digested and Maca’s active ingredients more concentrated and more quickly absorbed by the body. Gelatinized Maca Powder is great for sensitive stomachs as well as for those who are looking for a faster-acting and more concentrated /potent effect of Maca.
Nature’s Superfoods’ Gelatinized Maca Root Powder is a special blend of yellow, red and black Maca roots, sun-dried (not oven-dried) before going through the process of gelatinization. Certified organic, gluten-free, non-irradiated, non GMO.
