Maca root powder is another exciting superfood produced in South America that has gained popularity for its stimulating effects and nutritional benefits. Maca is a root grown indigenously in the Andes mountains, and was used for many generations by the ancient Inca civilizations of Peru before being used by “health-nuts” globally today. It is widely known to naturally boost stamina, increase energy levels and improve one’s mood, but has more recently earned praise for its support of reproductivity in both men and women.
Andean Star Organic Maca Powder and Organic Black Maca Powder are 100% natural and high in potency, as it is produced under the highest quality production standards. It is easy to consume and can be added as an ingredient or supplement to many products such as baked goods, smoothies or juices, breakfast food and much more.
Start your mornings off with a “bang!” by infusing them with Andean Star Organic Maca Powder!

Some of the other fantastic benefits of Maca root powder include:
- It is an adaptogen, meaning it can be used as an herbal remedy to help one’s body adapt to stress.
- Maca naturally boosts sex drive in men and women.
- Maca is rich in protein.
- Maca also has a high mineral content (iron, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous).
- It is gluten-free and suitable for those suffering from celiac disease.
The year we started producing superfoods, we founded Happy Little Faces, a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for impoverished children in our local community of Lima, Peru. In 2010, we built a kindergarten from scratch, providing free education, lunches, and extra-curricular activities for local children who would otherwise not have these opportunities.
We are proud to say that our initiative has grown successfully in Lima. We thank you for being a large part of our growth as an organization, and for helping the local communities of Peru.
