Paradise Maca Up vegetarian energy protein is a complete source of vegan, hypo-allergenic protein with a balanced amino acid profile derived from certified organic brown rice and certified organic pea. Pea protein is easily assimilated and has a sustained release transit time, which means it has excellent digestibility and keeps working. We have further enhanced our formula with the addition of the plant derived enzyme Aminogen. Research shows Aminogen increases branched-chain amino acids by 250%, plasma amino acid levels over 100%, glutamine levels by 90%, arginine levels by 80%, and nitrogen retention by 32%. It also promotes lean body mass, aids in muscle recovery, and may provide less gas, bloating and constipation.
Paradise Maca Up also contains a great source of heart healthy Nutrim Organic Oat Bran fiber. Maca has been used for centuries by the people of Peru for its amazing energy and stamina qualities.
One level scoop daily. Tastes great mixed in water, juice, rice or almond milk.

Great range of ingredients

This didn't taste the best for me, slightly bitter and it didn't froth up in a shake. Plenty of great ingredients in it though :-)

Sometimes I am really busy and don't have enough time for long regular meals during the day. In these days I take my Maca Up with almond milk. The taste is very nice. I also bought Nutiva's gelatinized maca but its taste is really unpleasant and I can't take it on its own, so I sometimes combine them and add a bit of natural chocolate or cocoa powder and the taste is fine. When I take only this maca the taste is quite good, and I sometimes have craving for it. I don't know if it's a good or a bad thing, but I quite like it. Also, when I feel like eating chocolate or anything sweet, I take a spoon of Maca Up and usually that's enough to kill the craving.

I like this protein powder. I has non GMO ingredients and some are organic. It's nice in smoothies especially when you add a banana or some fruit but I add reishi powder and more maca and some soaked chia seeds and its yummy and sustaining.

It doesn't have a seal underneath the cap. The one I got the content leaked! The manufacturer needs to redesign it or no reorder from me!
Good value & quality

Good quality protein, it's not the best tasting when mixed with just water, but it's not the worst either. Best mixed with milks, juices, or in a smoothie. Great for cooking with too.
