• Maca is a Root Renowned for Its Benefits to Maintain Hormonal Balance and Vitality*
  • Unsweetened Whole Food Powder Easy to Add to Smoothies and Other Drinks for an Extra Boost of Remarkable Nutrients
  • Daily Maca Plus Designed with Nourishing Whole Foods and Targeted Botanicals to Promote the Overall Well-being and Vitality of Men and Women

ANAHEIM, Calif. (March 6, 2015) – MegaFood, a leading whole food supplement producer and champion of the natural retailer, today at the Natural Products Expo West unveiled two new Nutrient Booster Powders made with popular superfood maca: Daily Maca Plus – Women Over 40 and Daily Maca Plus – Men Over 40.

For centuries, Maca has been prized for its vitamin-rich nutrients and hormone-balancing properties* by the indigenous peoples of Peru. Recently, Maca has been gaining in popularity in the United States for its health benefits*. MegaFood’s new Nutrient Booster Powders have been specially formulated with Maca and synergistic herbs including black cohosh for woman and saw palmetto for men to help support changes that come with aging.*

With the Daily Maca Booster Powders, Megafood has harnessed all the benefits of Maca – which isn’t always easy to find at the store – and has conveniently made it into an unsweetened whole food powder, so customers can easily add it to smoothies, fresh juices, protein shakes and more.

“Although Maca’s popularity amongst healthy consumers has recently grown, there have been limited available products that combine organic maca with other vitalizing, body-rejuvenating herbs--until now. At MegaFood, we are committed to crafting nourishing supplements that not only stay true to the intention of food, but also make it easy and convenient for consumers to incorporate a variety of eclectic foods into their diet, without all of the challenges of trying to find and prepare these elusive ingredients,” said Stacey Gillespie, FoodState® Director of New Products. “These new nutrient powders are hands-down the easiest, most convenient way to include Maca and other amazing anti-aging herbs into your daily routine.*”

Women who are experiencing hormonal imbalances and conditions related to perimenopause and menopause will love Daily Maca Plus - Women Over 40, as it provides relief from occasional conditions related to menopause including hot flashes, moodiness, sleep disturbances and cramping, while simultaneously promoting vitality, heart health and a positive outlook.*

For men, Daily Maca Plus – Men Over 40 is designed to support energy, stamina and vitality, while MegaFood’s FoodState Eleuthero root plus Rhodiola root promotes healthy endurance, mental performance and core inner energy.*

“Maca is really hot right now, and it’s no wonder, when you consider the incredible impact it can have on the body,” Gillespie said. “We are unbelievably excited to add the Daily Maca boosters to our best-selling product line and to share the inherent benefits of such a remarkable food with natural food lovers.”

MegaFood also invites customers to share their favorite smoothie recipes at https://www.megafood.com/boosters. Those submissions will be used to create a recipe book, and will be shared on social media channels.
