What is Maca powder?
The Maca plant grows in the Andes in South America and its wealth of health benefits lie in its roots. At Naturya, the Maca they use is grown in Carhuamayo – a province of the ‘Mesya del Bombom’ (Bombom platau), which is over 4,000 metres high. The Maca roots are dug from the ground by hand using a ‘cashu’ (small hoe) to prevent any damage and left in the sun for 10-15 days to dry naturally.
Dried Maca roots can actually be stored for up to seven years, but Naturya’s are rushed to a local processing plant where the best roots are chosen, weighed and then cleaned. Then they’re cleaned again, disinfected and cut up into small segments before being dehydrated at 45°C with humidity control.
Then these Maca root pieces are finely milled into Natury’s Organic Maca Powder, are tested for microbes and then packaged up and shipped to the UK, ready for you to enjoy! Source of riboflavin (vitamin B2) and iron to fight fatigue. Supports immunity.
