What is an adaptogen? A substance that produces a response in your body which increases your power of resistance against multiple stressors. Adaptogens have a normalizing influence on your body’s multiple systems, improving both your physiological and emotional health.
Vega Maca is Clinically proven
Clinically proven, maca’s efficacy has been supported through countless scientific studies—and thousands of years of native Peruvian medicine. Maca is the same form of gelatinized maca used in published human clinical trials.
Why Choose Vega Maca?
Maca uses only the finest organic maca roots, traditionally grown in the Andean highlands of Peru. A unique whole maca root extract, Maca is gelatinized, removing the root’s starch to improve absorption and concentrate the active ingredients within. Processed using a proprietary gelatinization process developed by researchers at the University National Agraria La Molina in Peru, Maca is able to deliver purity and potency you can count on.
Sustainably harvested, fair-traded, and produced in partnership with the native Peruvians who farm it, Maca is certified organic by the internationally recognized Eco-Agency SKAL of the Netherlands. Maca is both farmed and processed using certified organic practices and is the best selling brand of Maca in Canada.
How to Use Vega Maca Powder
Maca is available in vegetarian capsules and in a pure powder form. Taking capsules are self-explanatory; just follow the directions on the label and you’re good to go. Keep in mind that though capsules are a convenient and popular method of delivery, they are also significantly more expensive on a per gram basis because you are paying for the additional cost of encapsulation and packaging.
The most economical method of delivery is Maca powder. Our powder is Gelatinized so it mixes in more easily and tastes better than regular Maca powder. Maca powder is very versatile; it can be mixed with water or any hot or cold beverage or food. The following is one of our favourite smoothie recipes – it tastes great and can be a complete meal in itself in just minutes:
The Macagizer Smoothie
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/2 cup ice cubes
- 1/2 cup soy milk, almond milk or water
- 1/4 cup freshly ground flax seeds
- 1 heaping tablespoon Vega Protein Smoothie
- 1 heaping tablespoon Maca powder
- 2 heaping tablespoons of your favourite protein powder
Start by blending the ice cubes, banana and water or soy milk until smooth and with the blender still on gradually add the remaining ingredients. The protein and colostrum should be added last and only be blended just long enough to mix them in. This recipe makes enough for two regular servings or one giant one! Take this in lieu of breakfast for a week and you’ll know what it means to feel Macagized
Vega Maca powder has a pleasant, mildly malty, butterscotch-like flavor that works well when added to many foods such as cereal (hot or cold as Maca is not adversely affected by heat), salads, salad dressing, soup or yogurt. Maca powder can also be added as a dry ingredient to baked goods such as muffins, pancakes, cookies etc.
Maca can be taken before, with or after meals; it doesn’t really matter. As a general rule of thumb, take 1,500 mg–10,000 mg daily, best split into 2-3 servings. Maca is a natural whole food so realistically, taking less than 1,500 mg. daily may not be very effective.
If you find you aren’t getting the results you want, try increasing your dosage. With Vega Maca, more is often better and it is proven to be safe at any dosage level.
Vega Maca Powder can be taken before, with or after meals. Mix 1-2 teaspoons daily into beverage or food.
