The root vegetable Lepidium meyenii (maca) is a member of the cruciferous family that also includes broccoli, cauliflower and kale. In the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains where our maca root is grown, the harsh environment has shaped this superfood to be tough enough to withstand any environmental challenge. It passes its strength on to you. The roots are carefully selected, then washed before they are cut, cooked, dried and made ready for milling.
Cacao is a bean grown on a tree native to Central America. It provides high levels of beneficial flavonoids, including catechin, epicatechin, and procyanidins, which are powerful antioxidants. Cacao has more antioxidants than red wine, green tea and blueberries combined! These antioxidants are known for their ability to decrease free radical damage that can contribute to cardiovascular disease and symptoms. Cacao is naturally high in magnesium, manganese and copper, helping to keep your systems and enzymes functioning optimally.
Organika’s organic maca undergoes a specialized procedure called gelatinization.This splits large starch chains into smaller molecules. This leads to a much smoother, less gritty experience for you. The additional slow cooking in our gelatinization methods may enhance the availability of some nutrients and minerals. Even the natives of Peru cook or heat process their maca in some manner for better digestibility and increased benefits.
