How do I use it?

Quality & Provenance

Our Maca is grown just above 4,000 metres, in the Carhuamayo province of the ‘Meseta del Bombom’ (Bombom Plateau). Maca roots are dug out by hand using a small hoe called a cashu, to prevent damage, then dried naturally in the sun for 10-15 days.

Dried maca roots can be stored for seven years, but we rush ours to a local processing plant, where they’re meticulously weighed and cleaned, with only the finest roots selected for processing. These roots are washed again, disinfected and cut into small 10mm segments, before being fully dehydrated at 45°C under humidity control.

The segments are finely milled into a powder of 60 mesh specification, then and tested for microbes, before being packaged and shipped to the UK where we check the quality once more, then give them to you.

Why is it good for me?

  1. Rich in riboflavin (vitamin B2) and iron which contribute to the reduction of tiredness & fatigue and normal functioning of the immune system
  2. Rich in riboflavin (vitamin B2) which contributes to the maintenance of normal skin and vision and the protection of cells against oxidative stress
  3. High in iron which contributes to normal cognitive function
  4. High in protein which contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass
  5. Source of zinc which contributes to the maintenance of normal bones

Energy and Focus in Abundance!

This has become my favourite 3pm pick-me-up! It's an amazing natural mental and physical energy booster and I wish I'd discovered it years ago. I simply mix a teaspoon of Naturya's Maca with a couple of teaspoons of cacao powder in warm milk and enjoy it as a healthy hot chocolate. I can't recommend it highly enough!
