Lepidium meyenii, also known as Maca or Peruvian ginseng, is an edible herby plant native to the Andes mountains of Peru. According to the legends, the Spaniards noticed that the reproductive rate of their domestic animals and man himself had an increased reproductive rate in the Andean highlands than in Spain. The chronicles contain frequent references to this phenomenon. It is said that the Peruvian natives recommended feeding maca to the animals and that the Spaniards noticed the positive effect of this food. The Maca root is used as a traditional medicine with reported benefits of supporting emotional aspects of sexual health, supporting healthy mood balance during menopause and acting as a source of anti-oxidants. The Sfera Maca Extract is made using a Lepidium meyenii extracted in a 4:1 ratio, with the purpose of increasing the concentrations of bioactive compounds per dosage such as anti-oxidants.


One vegetarian capsule provides:  
Lepidium meyenii (Yellow Maca) [root, 4:1 extract] 400mg
Other ingredients: Vegetarian capsule, microcrystalline cellulose, and natural flow agent.  
Please take note: Yellow Maca refers to the colour of the root, variance in taste and antioxidants.



Take one (1) to three (3) capsules daily with water on an empty stomach, at least one hour before or two hours after a meal, or as directed by your health care provider. Dose can be divided during the day, preferably in the mornings and mid-day.

        Maca Capsules

        Thank you Sfera for such a beautiful product. I HAVE been taking the Sfera Maca for symptoms of menopause and lack of sexual interest. After taking this for almost a month, my body is adapting well and I can see some improvement with these symptoms. Loving this product so much. Thank you once again.

        Energy and Hormonal Imbalances

        Navigating through hormonal imbalances is certainly a testing journey at times and sometimes we just want to throw our hands in the air. I started using Maca Extra on account of my hormonal imbalance - however have been so surprised by the extra energy. We need to figure out our body’s own ‘nurture language’. When and if you need a little extra spark this has helped me, we all have unique needs - don’t expect miracles; take two months - be patient. I loved every small improvement and still see improvements even after three months of taking maca.
