Description

Certified Organic Maca Extreme®
Maca is a root vegetable grown in the Peruvian Andes. It was sacred to the Incas and has been used as a food and medicine in South America for centuries. It is well known for its ability to help enhance strength and endurance. In fact, Incan warriors would often consume maca before long journeys and battles. Maca Extreme® is a micro-pulverized, highly absorbable, 4:1 concentration of the most important elements in maca—a little goes a long way! Maca Extreme® contains less starch than standard maca, making it ideal for those with difficulty digesting cruciferous vegetables.

The Sunfood Difference™
Traditionally, maca powder is made by grinding up sun-dried maca roots of various colors. Our raw, organic, non-GMO Maca Extreme® is created using a cold-drying process with fresh maca roots, generating a uniquely powerful concentration not found anywhere else.

Intense Review by Marie
Rating
The taste of the powder is good but a little too intense for me. (Posted on 9/3/14)
Great Energy Booster Review by Andrea
Rating
I always include this in my morning smoothies or juices as it gives me that extra boost of energy I need in the morning - it does not at all feel too intense like other reviewers have said - and I often add more than the suggested amount - it's good stuff! Don't be scared or turned off by the "too extreme" comments. (Posted on 4/28/14)
Great product but not for everyone Review by MM
Rating
I really like what maca does for me, so I decided to try this more potent formula. Wow! It's really intense. I couldn't sit still at my desk. Realizing this, I use it now only before a workout or long hike. The regular maca works better for everyday use. (Posted on 1/20/14)
Rich flavor and great zoom zoom! Review by Jordana
Rating
I liked the texture and rich flavor. It’s been awhile since I had regular maca, but do feel a bit more zoom zoom than I remembered from the regular maca. I have never had a power/energy drink before, with all the amazing superfoods and products like maca. This is the way to go. (Posted on 1/13/14)
In love! Review by Jayme

I love this product, and it is true that a little goes a long way. I take about 1/2 tsp - 1 tsp of this powder and 1 tbsp of the regular maca. This ones seems so smooth too. (Posted on 1/10/14)
Solid Product Review by Diashi
Rating
I bought a jar of Maca Extreme (ME) just before it was repackaged in its bag form, and mostly because of the claims people were making that ME was "too intense" or that they couldn't sit still and had to stop using it.

ME is an adaptogen, which just means it improves your body's ability to deal with physical or psychological stress, trauma, anxiety and fatigue by supporting the adrenal glands, endocrine system, and thyroid, which overall increases hormone output and the body's immunity.

While I can't speak for others, I can assure you that after using ME almost daily for 2 weeks, I've had no such "intense" reactions. And to my knowledge, that's how it should be. This isn't a pre-workout boost. If you're healthy and have good energy, you probably won't notice anything.

That being said, ME is another solid product from Sunfood, and if you're looking for a natural way to curb stress, or just want another healthy powder to add to your superfood smoothie, I definitely recommend it. (Posted on 2/26/13)
