Nature’s Superfoods’ Organic Gelatinized (Activated) Maca Root Powder is a proprietary blend of yellow, red and black Maca roots, and hails from the high elevations of the Peruvian Andes from the Junin region, where the best-quality Maca roots are produced in Peru. Known as Peruvian Ginseng, the certified organic Maca roots are sun-dried (not oven-dried), before going through the process of gelatinization (under controlled temperature and high-pressure conditions) to break down the starch chains for easier digestion and absorption in the body. Many consume this superfood to improve energy, vitality, libido and fertility.


MACA: High in protein and complex carbs and is abundant in amino acids, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, vitamins (B1, B2, C & E) and minerals (calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, sodium & iron). It is also rich in many bioactive plant compounds, which have good effect on not only sex hormones, but also on adrenals, giving a feeling of greater energy and vitality, and on the pancreas and thyroid as well.


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. Gelatinized Maca’s active ingredients are 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.

Maca root nourishes and rejuvenates the endocrine (hormonal) system, thus balancing naturally the production of hormones in the body. Maca does not contain hormones. Maca has been shown to be beneficial for all sorts of hormonal problems including PMS and male/female menopause.


Botanical Name: Lepidium meyenii, Walp

2) Bake into cakes / cookies.

3) Add directly into desserts or sweet treats.

As Gelatinized Maca Powder and Raw Maca Powder are similar in taste and aroma, the recipes are interchangeable.

Recommended daily intake: 1/3 (one-third) to 1 teaspoon (4g). Start with half or 1 teaspoon first (test your body's response to it) and then increase daily.Take 1-2 days off a week (or 1 week off a month) so that your body will remain responsive to maca's phytonutrients.

For children, take 1/3 (one-third) teaspoon of maca powder, not necessarily on a daily basis.

Maca may not be suitable for pregnant women, as with most other herbal supplements. Those who have thyroid conditions or want to completely avoid iodine might want to avoid taking maca. If you have a sensitive digestive system, try our Organic Gelatinized Maca Powder (pre-cooked and more easily digested) instead of Raw Maca Powder.
