About our organic black maca powder

Black maca powder originates from one variety of the maca root which has a deep purple/black pigment in it’s skin. Like yellow and red maca, it is grow widely over the Cordillera of the Andes in Peru, and has been used for about 2,000 years by the native Incans. While the skin of the black maca root is dark, the inside of the root is the same light yellow/beige colour as red and yellow maca, meaning when powdered all types of maca look similar in colour.

Our organic black maca powder is produced to the highest standards, following the same farming practices that have been used locally in Peru for generations.

Black maca boasts many beneficial nutrients including vitamins B1, B2, C and E and contains a wealth of minerals including calcium, copper, iron and zinc. Not only this but black maca also contains over 2o amino acids including all 8 essential amino acids, alkaloids, plant sterols and the beneficial plant compounds glucosinolates and polyphenols.

Maca is also one of the most well know and popular ‘adaptogens’, it is believed these herbs can adapt to your bodies physiology to help you deal with external stressors. Maca could be very beneficial for boosting mood and energy levels, and black maca is thought to be particularly helpful for balancing male hormones.
