Health First Maca Root


Organic Gelatinized Maca Root to help support hormonal balance and the emotional aspects of sexual health.

Maca, also known as Peruvian ginseng, has long been used to support energy and virility. Historically it was given to warriors to nourish them while improving energy for long battles. Still growing and sourced today in the Andes mountains of Peru, this starchy root vegetable has gained popularity in modern supplements to support women’s and men’s health, libido, and energy.

Health First Maca contains a certified organic blend of red, black, and yellow maca and is sustainably harvested in Peru. An important thing to know about maca is never to consume it raw, as it’s almost impossible for our digestive systems to break down. Peruvians use the cooking process of gelatinization to boil down their maca, and then they grind it into a powder for medicinal purposes. Health First Maca is also gelatinized to ensure you are reaping all of its wonderful benefits!

Features & Benefits:

  • Contains 750 mg of Maca per capsule
  • Sustainably harvested in Peru
  • Gelatinized and certified organic

Maca grows at altitudes of 4,000+ metres above sea level in the harsh environment of the Andes Mountains. This harsh, yet mineral-rich environment contributes to maca’s impressive nutritional profile. Particularly high in fibre and vitamin C, maca boasts an extensive mineral profile.

Maca is an adaptogen, aiding the body in adapting to stress. When suffering from chronic stress, the body tells the autonomic nervous system to work harder and the nervous system gets depleted. The body then has a more difficult time recovering when stress increases. This can cause issues such as a weakened immune system, mental health issues, insomnia, and more. 

Maca has a pleasant mild earthy taste that pairs well with savoury flavours like chocolate and coffee. The capsules can easily be opened and added to smoothies or elixirs for those that prefer not to swallow capsules.

Adults (18 years and older) – Take 1-4 capsule(s) once daily.
