Maca Blue...maca-blue-warm-cup.jpg

...is a delicious colorful superfood blend designed to give you a healthy energy boost and increased immune function.   It contains just 2 organic, whole food ingredients:

  1. Heritage Harvest (tri-color) Gelatinized Maca Powder  - for natural hormone balance and sustained energy
  2. Blue Spirulina – for immune support, potent antioxidants and complete protein (more on its benefits below)

Description:

We've created Maca Blue using our high quality Peruvian grown tri-color maca root powder and U.S. grown blue spirulina powder (phycocyanin).   This gives you benefits from all three of the maca colors, red, yellow and black, plus the benefits of blue spirulina (the most potent part of spirulina).  Maca root powder is excellent as a natural hormone balancer and energy booster and blue spirulina powder is linked to a variety of positive health benefits including immune system stimulation, liver protection and heart health.

Benefits:
We notice several positive outcomes from adding this blend to our diet.

  1. Feeling satiated.   Both maca and spiriulina powders alone are nutrient dense foods.  Together they are offer a huge amount of functional nutrition.   After enjoying Maca Blue, you are likely to feel full longer.    This can be helpful for weight loss.    
  2. Energy and focus.   You can expect that Maca Blue will give you a bit more energy and mental focus than just plain maca powder does.    One thing we’ve noticed since starting to take it is more sustained energy throughout the day.
  3. Better workouts and recovery.  We have seen that we have stronger workouts and that our recovery time is less when taking Maca Blue.

We are excited to see how you do with this product and what other benefits you notice.

According to WebMd blue spirulina is associated with a variety of benefits.   It is in particular the plant-based protein phycocyanin (found primarily in the blue part of spirulina) that is associated with these types of benefits:maca-blue-lifestyle-spoon.jpg

  • Anti-Inflammation
  • Block tumor growth
  • Killing cancer cells
  • Lowering cholesterol
  • Allergy relief
  • Immune system support – increased production of white blood cells
  • Oral and eye health
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Improving muscle strength and endurance

Several of these are similar to the benefits associated with adding maca powder to your diet and a few others are unique to maca including:

  • Increased libido
  • Increased fertility
  • Enhanced mental focus
  • Improved circulation
  • Muscle growth
  • Elevated mood
  • Healthy bones and teeth

Together, these two amazing functional foods can work in synergy to promote higher energy levels along with overall vitality and wellbeing.

Serving Recommendations:iced-maca-blue.jpg

Enjoy Maca Blue mixed into your favorite drink, either cool or warm.  We prefer mixing it into almond or hemp milk (that way you get the full beauty of the blue color).  You can also add it to your favorite smoothie blend.

  • 1 T / 9 g of powder works well with 8 ounces / 225 ml of liquid.   You can increase or decrease the amount to suit your tastes.  
  • 1 T / 9 g of Maca Blue contains about 6 g of maca powder.  You can still take your standard daily serving of maca separately if you like.  

Maca Blue is great as a “pick-me-up” anytime you need a boost throughout the day.  We prefer taking it in the morning.  Just keep in mind that some people do have a harder time sleeping if they enjoy maca powder shortly before bedtime.

Questions about Maca Blue

Please note that we are not doctors and that the answers below are not intended as medical advice.  If you have any doubts about using Maca Blue or any of our products please consult your preferred health care practitioner.

    1. Does it taste like spirulina? - No.  Blue spirulina is neutral in taste.  Mixed with our maca it has a mild caramel-like taste.
    2. Is that blue color natural? – Yes it is.  In fact, blue spirulina is sometime used as a natural food coloring
    3. Is Maca Blue Raw?  -  Not 100%.  We use gelatinized (pre-cooked) maca powder so that everyone can easily take it.  The blue spirulina is uncooked.
    4. Is Maca Blue a replacement for my daily maca? – It can be, if you take enough Maca Blue to get your daily serving of Maca (1 T Maca Blue contains about 6g Maca).  
    5. How many times a day can I enjoy Maca Blue? – Once or twice and especially pre-workout.   
    6. Why is Maca Blue so pricey? – That’s mainly because of the costs of high-quality spirulina powder.   We use certified organic U.S. grown spirulina.
    7. Can I take it with high blood pressure? - Because it contains Maca, it is possible that the blend will help circulation and actually reduce blood pressure.   Please monitor your blood pressure and consult with your doctor if you have questions
    8. Can I take Maca Blue if I have diabetes?  - Yes, it contains no sugars.
    9. Can I take Maca Blue if I am pregnant or breast feeding? - Maca in general is used throughout pregnancy and breast feeding in Peru.   
    10. Can children take Maca Blue? - Yes, but in smaller amounts.  About 1/2 T per 50 lbs / 20 kg of weight is a good starting place.
    11. Can I take Maca Blue with other supplements or medications? - This blend is a food and should not interfere with any herbs, supplements or medications.   If you have any doubts, we recommend that you take only a small amount to start with and monitor your reaction.

Enjoy the day!
