Full Description

Maca (Lepidium meyeni) is native to the highlands of Peru and Bolivia. This sacred perennial plant has been harvested and used for centuries in Andean culture to treat low libido and increase energy levels. 

This nutrient dense superfood is a powerhouse of vitamins, plant sterols, minerals, and heart-healthy fats that keep the body functioning at its optimum. It includes seven of the nine essential amino acids as well as high levels of healthy carbohydrates, protein, iron, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, b vitamins, and linoleic and oleic fatty acids.

Maca is an adaptogen (a natural substance that normalises and regulates the system of the body) and provides overall well being for the cardio, lymphatic and nervous systems and it gently energises and is a defence against stress.

Scientists have identified four alkaloids in maca powder, which nourish the endocrine system and stabilise the body’s hormones.

Research supports that maca root may be helpful for men with erectile dysfunction (ED), by gently and gradually reversing the underlying circulatory problem. Studies show that oral supplementation with maca repairs the biochemical cascade of events that makes penile arteries misbehave without the health risks associated with prescription ED drugs. Many factors can affect libido, including hormone levels, stress and mood. 

For women research has shown that after 8 weeks of taking 1,500 mg of maca a day reduced miscarriage rates and increase in foetal growth. Men enjoy an average 180% increase in their libido and average 200% increase in semen volume as well as significantly increased sperm counts. All these benefits occur without meddling with sex hormone levels. Instead it appears that maca activates an anabolic gene pathway known as insulin-like growth factor (IGF), which is a critical determinant of fertility and foetal development, and which is known to decline with age.

Shoku Iku’s Gelatinised Maca does not contain gelatine and is vegan. ‘Gelatinisation’ simply refers to a cooking process that helps make maca much healthier and safer to consume and is more effective for the body to absorb its benefits. Our maca is a blend of yellow, red and black maca,
