- Gelatinized Maca Root - Unlike raw maca, our organic maca root powder is gelatinized in order to improve the absorption of this renowned root. Gelatinization ensures hard-to-digest starch is broken down by applying low heat to raw maca roots, resulting in a highly absorbable powder.
- Authentic Peruvian Maca - Known as Peruvian ginseng, maca from Peru has been harvested by natives for over 2,000 years! It was traditionally used by Incan warriors before battles, so it's no wonder why it is still considered a superfood today.
- Yellow Maca Root - Maca roots grow in three colors: yellow, black, and red. Our organic maca powder is gelatinized only from yellow maca roots, which we find to be the best maca powder variety!
- Certified Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, And Vegan-Friendly - Our Organic Maca Root is certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and is vegan-friendly, too!
I cannot say enough good things about this product. I had been reading about Maca for a while and watched a lot of videos on YouTube about it. I wanted to take it for hormone balancing and energy. I can DEFINITELY feel it working on my hormones. I am feeling things I had not felt in years.The first thing I noticed is after drinking a tablespoon mixed with my coffee is that it immediately opened up my sinuses. It does this every time, so it is not some placebo effect. I am kind of surprised I have not seen other people mention that it does that to them too. That is an interesting effect that I will take. It makes it easier to breathe through my nose. The other thing I love about it is it does put me in a great mood and gives me a lot of clean feeling energy that lasts all day. It also decreases my appetite so I am not snacking all day long. I do love this stuff and will keep buying this brand because it is working so well. I also love that it is organic as I rarely buy products that have chemicals and pesticides in them anymore. So I very much appreciate that it is organic. It has a nice malty flavor that I like in my coffee, and it also tastes good in a vanilla banana smoothie that I make with vanilla protein powder on occasion. Great stuff!
I started mixing 1tsp of Viva Naturals Organic Maca Powder in my tea in the morning. This is a definite energy booster. I am now using this instead of coffee for my morning/afternoon pick me up. I've been using this for 4 weeks 2x daily. My need for an afternoon power nap has vanished. I never thought that would be possible. The raw powder gave me stomach issues, that's why i switched to this Gelatinized version. No more stomach issues and mixes well in a hot beverage. This also makes a great Pre-workout beverage.
I cannot tell you how much I love this product....please know, I am not a robot or a paid person.....I am a mom of 4 kids who, two weeks ago, was out of energy and very cranky. I tried this maca one morning and literally, in a few hours had the BEST energy ever. I still cannot believe it. The test with me is that I consistently feel well each morning since. Miracle.....
This really helps me a lot! It boosts the endocrine glands, including hormones, adrenal, and thyroid, and gives me energy. I was having a hard time coming back from severe adrenal fatigue until I started taking this. I missed taking it one day and I could tell that I forgot to take it.
A well-known fertility food, maca helps rebalance your hormones, and is touted on many fertility books and blogs as a must-try during conception process. Not only did i become pregnant, but my blood sugar went down, and I lost a few pounds due to less cravings (blood sugar balanced). I took a spoonful every day in my tea, until the test stick was positive.However, during pregnancy you should *stop* taking it, as you need the rush of hormones to support proper fetal growth, and maca powder may disrupt that.
