With the first published description of Maca Root dating back to 1553, Lepidium meyenii has been used by people for centuries. Maca Root is grown in altitudes between 2800-5000 meters above sea level in the central Peruvian Andes. This herb is a part of the Brassicaceae family, alongside other plants such as broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage. Maca is known to have adaptogenic properties and therefore may help relieve stressors in the body, thus helping to maintain homeostasis. It is also known for its traditional benefits, and limited research suggests that it may increase libido, energy, endurance, and improve mood. Though preliminary, Maca has been found to increase males’ sexual behavior in some trials. In one study in particular, Maca was found to increase male’s self-rated sexual desire over time when compared to the placebo. To experience the traditional benefits of this cruciferous plant, try our easy-to-take herbal tincture!
Each bottle comes with 60 servings.

Q: What is the Organic Glycerin Made from?
A: Our Organic Glycerin is derived from Rapeseed, a yellow flowering plant in the mustard family Brassicaceae.
Q: Why make a glycerin-based herbal rather than alcohol-based?
A: These botanicals are made through dynamic processes, extracting heat-sensitive compounds with glycerin. This allows for more bioavailability of the organic compounds found in the herbs that would otherwise be denatured and rendered inert by alcohol. Additionally, by making our tinctures alcohol-free, we aim to make a more inclusive product for all!
Q: What is an Herbal Tonic?
A: An herbal tonic is an herb or botanical complex that supports overall health and maintenance of bodily systems and promotes a sense of well-being.
Q: What are adaptogenic herbs?
Adaptogenic herbs are aptly described by their name, as they assist the body in adapting to different stressors, and support the body’s ability to maintain its natural homeostasis.
Q: What color Maca is used in this product?
A: Our Maca Root herbal contains primarily yellow maca, in addition to red and black maca.
Q: What is the content of Maca Root in this product?
A: While this is a proprietary blend (and thus we cannot disclose the amounts of Maca Root in the product), this is also just a difficult question to answer! Most of our herbal products are glycerites, which means that the botanicals are steeped in glycerin to extract the beneficial constituents and compounds contained in the botanical(s).
Rather than thinking of it like a recipe, where a certain amount of x is added to y, it may be easier to think bag (otherwise you're drinking small bits of whatever was in your tea bag!), but the steeping process pulls flavors, aromatics, and various compounds from the bag of tea. The process of creating a glycerite herbal of it like a tea bag steeped in hot water. The tea it produces doesn't contain what was contained in the tea product is similar to this!
