Royal Maca Powder (mockup)
Maca root is a cruciferous plant native to the highlands of Peru. It has been used for thousands of years by native Peruvians living at 14,000 feet above sea level to promote vitality, sexuality, and hormone balance in men and women.
- Libido, reproductive function and sexual function in men and women
- Hormone balance throughout a woman's life, including lower pain in regular periods, relief for PMS, relief of all menopausal symptoms (including hot flashes and night sweats) and support for post-menopausal energy and sexual function*
- Supports energy, libido and sexual function in older men and women
Due to the adaptogen-like functions of Maca root, it will benefit each person according to gender and age when taken at the correct dosage for the individual.Read more about Royal Maca

Using Royal Maca as a Food
In powder form, Royal Maca has a distinctive, good taste — malty and nutty at the same time. You can add hot water and make a tea out of it (even add milk and honey if you like). Or you can sprinkle it on cereal, hot or cold, or you can put it into a smoothie. It can be mixed with apple juice, cranberry or pineapple juice (these are the best) in a blender for a few seconds. The powder can also be added to salad dressing, put on salads, mixed with soup, or added to foods.The powder is easy to add to smoothies, juice, protein drinks, yogurt, cereal (both hot and cold), and almond or organic soy milk.
Measure carefully! One-third of a teaspoon is equivalent to two capsules of Royal Maca Vitality-Libido-Balance or Royal Maca for Menopause.

Menopause – Hot Flashes, Mood Swings
“Your product has helped me tremendously! I was going through menopause with hormones out of balance – now Royal Maca seems to have my body on track! Minimal problems with hot flashes, and mood swings. In April, I went to a naturalistic doctor and, by blood drop analyses, my hormones were in good balance – thanks to your product!!” ~ Cindy H., Georgetown, SC
Irregular Cycle, Sleep Problems, Fatigue
“I have had a very good result with your Royal Maca product. My greatest problem was with my cycle not being regular and under control. I am now regular every month like clock work. I have never been regular in my life until now. It has helped with my sleeping problems and greatly improved my alertness and focus also. I have had great success and have even gotten some of my family and friends to try it. All have reported vast improvements and are very happy with your product.” ~ Michelle G., Hereford, TX
Affordable and Affective
“A rounded teaspoon of Royal Maca powder at breakfast time has been for me (a retired person) like a nearly bio-identical hormone replacement for about five years. It is one of several bedrocks in my supplement program, and I simply could not function at anywhere close to my present level at my income level without it. I am very grateful.” ~Jacob G., Freeport, IL
Study on Increase of Male Sexuality Using Maca Root
“Effect of Lepidium meyenii (MACA) on sexual desire and its absent relationship with serum testosterone levels in adult healthy men.” Andrologia. 2002 Dec;34(6):367-72. Gonzales GF, Córdova A, Vega K, Chung A, Villena A, Góñez C, Castillo S.
- Results of the study: Maca root improved sexual desire within 8 weeks of treatment. Serum testosterone levels were not different in men treated with Maca root and in those treated with placebo. However, IGF-1 increases testosterone receptors on cells making existing testosterone more available
- Implications: Since Maca root increases tissue levels of IGF-1 and a raised level of IGF-1 increases the number of testosterone receptors, we have a probable explanation of how Maca root increases libido without raising testosterone levels.
Male Hair Loss
“Dose-response effect … Lepidium meyenii on benign prostatic hyperplasia induced by testosterone enanthate.” Gasco M, Villegas L, Yucra S, Rubio J, Gonzales GF. Department of Biological and Physiological Sciences, Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima, Peru.
- Results: Maca root causes the body to produce less DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) – the type of testosterone that causes hair loss and prostate enlargement
Maca Root Improves Adrenal Function
Lepidium peruvianum Chacon restores homeostasis impaired by restraint stress.
Phytother Res. 2004 Jun;18(6):471-4. López-Fando A, Gómez-Serranillos MP, Iglesias I, Lock O, Upamayta UP, Carretero ME.
- Results: Rats treated with Maca before undergoing the stress test showed very little variation or no variation in their pre-stress test blood tests. Maca reduced stress-induced ulcers, elevated cortisol levels, and hypoglycemia.
Raw Maca versus Cooked Maca – Which is Better?
Nutritional evaluation of the effects of Maca in albino mice and their offspring. Archivos Latinoamericanos de Nutricion. Vol. 50, No. 2, 2000. Marco Canales, Jose Aguilar, Ana Prada, Adolfo Marcelo, Cecilia Huaman, Luz Carvajal.
- Results: Mice fed raw maca had the lowest average birth weight and the slowest average growth rate in their offspring. Mice fed cooked maca had a higher average birth weight and a faster average growth rate in their offspring than the raw maca mice group. In the second generation of mice, these differences in birth rates and growth rates between the groups were even greater.
- Implications: Raw Maca inhibits digestion and assimilation of nutrients. It is worse than not taking Maca at all. Cooked Maca has significant nutritional benefits.
