Organic Maca

From the beautiful, pristine Junín valley of Peru comes one of the most exciting superfoods yet discovered. Essential Living Foods Raw Organic Maca is a pure, delicious form of the legendary adaptogenic herb that, amazingly enough, grows between 13,000 and 14,500 feet above sea level.

Maca has exploded in popularity in recent years for a variety of reasons. Some say it’s because of Maca’s potent nutritional content—with excellent amounts of protein, amino acids, fatty acids, plant sterols, antioxidants and more. Others feel that it’s one of the very best foods for increasing strength and endurance—which is how it was originally used in the days of the ancient Incas. And yet another group will point to the fact that Maca is an incredibly powerful aphrodisiac, one that most people feel within hours of taking it.

Whatever benefits most interests you; you’ve come to the right place. Essential Living Foods has a phenomenal track record in importing and wholesaling quality, organic Maca. We’ve sold this product to large, highly-respected supplement companies as well as multi-million dollar online retailers. Not a single client has ever been dissatisfied.

Organic Premium Maca is a mat-like perennial that grows between 13,000 and 14,500 feet above sea level in the high Andean plateaus of Peru. Its tuberous roots resemble those of its relative the radish. To Andean Indians, organic maca is a highly valuable commodity. The sweet, spicy dried root is considered a delicacy. Organic Maca boiled in water is sweeter than cocoa. Organic Maca pudding and jam are popular. It is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and iron, and contains trace minerals, including zinc, iodine, copper, selenium, bismuth, manganese and silica, as well as B vitamins. It also contains four alkaloids proven in scientific investigation to nourish the endocrine glands, including the reproductive system of men and women.

How It Is Created

First, the fresh Maca roots are carefully harvested at the peak of ripeness for maximum nutrition. Next, they are selected and graded. The prime roots are then collected and taken to a facility where the soil is washed off. After that, the whole roots are dried in a root cellar for approximately 30 days. Upon completion, the roots are then ground into a fine powder, sifted and packaged. No heat is ever used.

Few people know that root vegetables (like Maca) can pick up heavy metals from the soil if not rotated properly; which is why our partners carefully and systematically rotate the Maca fields, avoiding this issue entirely. Essential Living Foods’s partner is the only grower we know who’s doing this.

Scientific studies are gradually confirming the effects attributed to this prodigious plant since the Incas. Organic Maca is considered one of the plants with the highest international development potential. Because of its multiple effects, it has an ample application field from improving athletes’ performance to fighting infertility. The effects demonstrated on fertility and sexual activity could be due to an action in the pituitary gland, in charge of sexual maturation. Likewise, Organic Maca could activate the calcitonin hormone that regulates the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus in the blood, secreted by the thyroid gland and the parahormone of the parathyroid gland. Alkaloids of Maca could act as stimulants of the red globules formation and human and animal reproduction.

Essential Living Foods provides maca as a dried powder, roasted granulated powder, and atomized extract powder.

Pharmacological Information

Fertilising effect and actions on the reproductive system: The clinical study carried out by Gonzales from Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (2001) demonstrates an 85% increase in the men’s total sperm count, as well as an increase in sperm motility and motile sperms quantity (over 100%) in men treated with Maca. This study has also proved that Maca treatment does not alter hormonal levels.

Effect on the sexual activity: The study performed by Zheng at Shenyang Medical College et al (2000) demonstrated an improvement of mice sexual function measured by the increase in number of complete intromissions of normal mice (4 times higher than the control group), increase in number of sperm-positive females (2.5 times higher than the control group) and the decrease of the latent period of erection (LPE) in rats with erectile dysfunction. The study conducted by Cicero et al from the University of Modena (2001) confirmed similar effects. Other studies also confirmed Macas’ effects with respect to the sexual activity, such as the increase of the rut occurrence in ovine livestock.

Anti-stress effect: The study performed by Tapia at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (1998) demonstrates a greater resistance against stress development induced by electric discharges in mice as well as better ability reducing stress in animals fed with portions of Maca.

Athletic performance: Maca provides 5 times more proteins and 4 times more fibre than the potato, having less fat. It has an excellent 0.76 ratio of saturated to unsaturated fat (40.1% saturated fats, 52.7% unsaturated fat). Maca contains two of three essential fatty acids (oleic and linoleic). It also has a surprising amino acids profile, a total of 18 amino acids, including 7 of the 9 essential amino acids. Maca also contains high levels of natural sterols that boost athletic performance and stamina.

Growth: Rainbow trout fed maca diets have exhibited significantly higher growth rate than the other groups not fed maca. Survival was significantly higher in groups fed maca meal diets than in the control. The findings indicated that maca meal increased fish appetite, enhanced growth rate, feed utilization and survival.

Nutritional Benefits

  • Contains an abundance of unique plant sterols (like beta-sitasterol) that can assist in boosting hormone health in both men and women.

It also has a large content of amino acids (18), carbohydrates (60-75%) and some vitamins (A, B1-thiamine, B2-riboflavin, B3, niacin, B6, B12, C, E, carotene), minerals and oligoelements including calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper, sodium, potassium, selenium, boron, manganese and aluminium.
