Maca, NatubioVita (powder)





Maca is a herbaceous biennial plant originally found in the high Andes of Peru. Scientifically known as Lepidium Meyenii, the plant is grown and harvested in higher altitudes of between 13,000 and 15,000 feet (4,000 and 4,500 metres) above the sea level. For many centuries, Maca has been in use in Peru as a medicinal herb, as well as a root vegetable. Its most memorable use was during the Incan Civilization when it was believed that the incredible strength displayed by the Imperial Warriors was the result of them consuming large amounts of Maca before going for a battle.

The Maca Powder by NatubioVita is comprised of a fine blend of multicoloured Maca roots (40% yellow, 30% black and 30% red), specially formulated to give you the greatest benefits. All the roots are carefully handpicked by our farming partners, after which they are cut and gently dehydrated at suitable temperatures of about 450C to make them ready for easy milling and pulverization. With the kind of processing we have, it is our assurance to you that this Power Food of the Incas will benefit you, with all its complex nutritional components intact.

Maca Powder is reputed to have over 50 beneficial and naturally occurring plant chemicals, also known as phytochemicals. Phytochemicals are vital in the hormonal health of the human body and they have direct impact on the immune system, the brain, the reproductive system, and the thyroid glands. With all these phytochemicals, as well as the wide range of vitamins present in Maca Powder, it is without a doubt one of the most powerful and most complete herbs in the world. Chemical analysis of the plant also reveals an astronomical profile of vitamins, amino acids, glucose, fatty acids and sterols. That’s why Maca is referred to as a superfood.

Medicinally, the Maca root has a wide range of applications in Peru. In men, for instance, it has the following applications:

  • Increase energy for those suffering from chronic fatigue
  • A nourishment for the glandular system
  • A libido and fertility enhancer
  • A performance enhancer for athletes
  • A hormonal balancer
  • General physical and emotional well-being enhancer

  • General physical and emotional well-being enhancer
  • To enhance sexual stimulation
  • For symptomatic menopausal relief
  • For alternative hormonal replacement therapy
  • Increase athletic performance and energy in those suffering from chronic fatigue

The other benefits which the root is known for include increasing blood circulation, enhancing the skin health, speeding up wound healing and reducing anemia, enhancing memory and cognitive abilities, and strengthening the bones and the teeth.


To tap into the full benefits of Maca Powder, it is imperative to follow the recommended dosage. You should start by taking smaller amounts initially and increase the dosage as time goes by. Ideally, you should start with one teaspoon per day and gradually increase to up to 3 teaspoons per day. It is also recommended that you should rotate between a few days on and then off, since taking too much of it at once may be detrimental to your hormonal balance. Should you notice any signs of hormonal imbalance, then you should wean yourself off completely.

The powder can be mixed effortlessly with drinks, salads, smoothies, juices, but it is not recommended that you add it to very hot foods since higher temperatures can affect its nutritional values. Again, the storage should be in a cool, dark place.

Important: Generally, the use of Maca Powder doesn’t come with any adverse side effects, but you should seek medical advice if you are on any form of medication, when pregnant, breastfeeding or if you have any medical condition before taking the supplement.
