ANDEAN HARVEST™ - Maca Organic Premium

Maca (Lepidium Meyenii), a cruciferous vegetable, is grown in the high Andes of Peru and Bolivia where it has been used for many centuries by the native peoples to help cope with the harsh conditions of life at higher altitudes.

Among its many benefits, Maca may help to increase energy, libido, boost the immune system, increase fertility and alleviate menopausal problems.

Andean Harvest Premium Maca has undergone a gentle heating process (gelatinization) removing its starch content and giving you a more potent, more digestive and pleasant tasting Maca!

Andean Harvest Premium Maca is free from the toxic hydrogen cyanide (or prussic acid) which the raw root contains.

Buy Maca Premium

Gelatinized organic Maca is considered the highest level of quality. After the cleaning process, the Maca roots undergo a gentle heating process (gelatinization) removing its starch content and the toxic hydrogen cyanide (or prussic acid) of the raw roots. The gelatinization process increases the concentration of nutrients (approx. 25% higher than raw Maca) and makes it more digestible. High quality gelatinized Maca root powder has a pleasant taste that reminds of caramel or butter toffee. It dissolves easily in milkshakes, smoothies, yoghurt, fruit juices and protein shakes.

 

Gelatinized Maca root powder does not contain gelatin of animal origin, it is 100% vegetable and suitable for a strict vegetarian diet (vegan).

 

 

Properties of the Maca root

Over the past few decades, many scientific researches were carried out in order to investigate the properties of the Maca root and its effect on the human metabolism. The Maca root is a natural foodstuff that for more than two thousand years is a regular part of the indigenous Andean peoples’ diet. Due to its positive properties, the superfood Maca is also called “Peruvian ginseng”.

 

The Maca root contains 19 amino acids, 9 of them are essential. Essential amino acids are indispensable for the human metabolism but cannot be built by the human organism and must be supplied by the diet. Natural amino acid sources should be preferred which can be absorbed better.

 

Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) are the essential and ramified amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. BCAA’s are often used as food supplement or in protein shakes for weight training and endurance sports. The Maca root is a natural source of these BCAA’s.

 

Besides the amino acids, Maca contains plenty minerals, vitamins, trace minerals and natural sterols. The maca root contains the following minerals: iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, manganese and zinc. Furthermore vitamin C, B1, B2, B3, B6 and natural sterols: sitosterol, campesterol, ergosterol, brassicasterols and ergostadienol.
