Vega Maca Details

A turnip-like cruciferous root vegetable native to the Andean mountains in Peru, maca is grown at altitudes of 14,000 feet where no other crops can survive making a resilient plant incredibly rich in amino acids, phytonutrients, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.

Used for centuries by native Peruvian for its remarkable health properties, maca has been clinically proven in both men and women to help:

  • Balance the hormonal system naturally
  • Improve sexual function
  • Increase energy
  • Reduce stress

Vega Maca Balances hormones & Improves sexual function

Renowned for its hormone-balancing effects, maca has been shown to optimize the hormonal system—without introducing foreign animal, plant or synthetic hormones. Maca regulates the endocrine system addressing hormonal imbalance and its associated symptoms in both sexes to safely:

  • Increase libido
  • Improve sexual performance
  • Alleviate menopause, PMS or andropause symptoms
  • Forestall the hormonal changes of aging

Vega Maca Increases energy & reduces stress

Also called ”Peruvian Ginseng”, maca is a powerful adaptogen that helps increase energy and stamina and improve the ability to handle stress. Its remarkable benefits lie in its ability to naturally nourish and rejuvenate exhausted adrenal glands serving to:

  • Increase energy
  • Reduce stress and its impact on the body
  • Control cortisol levels
  • Promote restful sleep
  • Improve immunity
  • Enhance mental clarity

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

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

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

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 Maca, more is often better and it is proven to be safe at any dosage level.

  • 9.9/10  Excellent results

    By Lumina on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 12:47 PM

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Easy To Take,First Dose Results

    How did you use it?:Every Morning

    "I was struggling with intense hot flashes and irritability, due to menopause.
    I saw an immediate improvement after I started with Maca, two pills in the morning with breakfast.
    I've been taking it for month now, and I very rarely have hot flashes now, and much less intense. My mood has improved greatly, as well.
    I don't think I'm experiencing a placebo effect with it, because I've tried other herbal remedies for menopause symptoms, and they didn't work for me. I know that people react differently to medication, but I would strongly recommend that you try Maca for menopausal symptoms. I will definitely continue with it."

  • 9.8/10  VEGA MACA

    By Ronda Brown on Friday, November 15, 2013 02:07 PM

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:8/10


    (+) Easy To Take

    How did you use it?:Everyday

    "I have tried multiple things to help ease the bad sleep and night sweats that come with menopause. This is the only thing that actually works! It is not a miracle cure, but symptoms are significantly reduced. I take for 30 days and then go off for 7 according to the website (it is good to educate yourself). When I go off, after a day or two I really notice the difference and vice versa when I go back on. Tip: take the pills even though they are more costly.....more convenient and much better on the taste buds!"
