MACA ROOT spagyric tincture - alchemically enhanced plant extraction


Native to the high Andes Mountains of Peru, MACA ROOT has been used to enhance energy and stamina since the time of the Inca. Sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng, due to its natural stimulant properties, maca root is high in protein, fibre, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and other minerals, plus anti-oxidants. In addition to being packed with nutritionally rich substances important to a balanced diet, this powerful ‘superfood’ is increasingly being recognised for its ability to boost energy levels and improve vitality, and to enhance libido and sexual health (not only sexual virility but also fertility) for both men and women. Maca root raises energy and strengthens endurance in a balanced and sustained manner. It is anabolic (i.e. it builds muscle) and is an excellent source of quality protein. The ‘adaptogen’ properties of maca root mean that both men and women can enjoy the benefits of increased athletic performance – this is because maca root ‘adapts’ to the body’s specific needs based on health condition and gender. As such, maca root stimulates the production of balanced levels of appropriate hormones (testosterone for men, estrogen for women). Maca root has been shown to be beneficial for women suffering from hormonal problems including PMS and the symptoms of menopause (including hot flashes and night sweats). Maca root works to elevate emotional mood, reduce anxiety and stress, and relieve mild depression. Maca root has been shown to increase mental clarity and focus, with beneficial effects on memory and learning. The ingestion of maca root can improve bone density and relieve conditions like osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. It also stimulates thyroid function, and has shown positive results for reducing the effects of chronic fatigue syndrome. Studies have shown that maca root reduces the size of the prostate gland in men.

SPAGYRIC TINCTURES offer a more energetically complete herb or plant extraction. These concentrated extractions contain the three essentials – that is, the body, soul and spirit – of the herb or plant, purified and recombined in an exalted medicinal form. The spagyric technique is part of the ancient initiatic tradition of alchemy – the Art that lies at the heart of the inner traditions of the West.

Ordinary herbal tinctures only partially utilise the curative powers of the plants from which they are prepared. Spagyric tinctures are made according to unique processes which ‘open’ the plant or herb and liberate stronger curative powers. The spagyric technique of confecting herbal remedies embodies another – more synergistic – way of considering Nature and its powers.



“I tried maca root before in powder form, but it didn't really give me any positive results. Then I gave it a try in tincture (liquid) form and it was great – like drinking a big cup of coffee energy, but better! Really wakes me up. I take it pre-workout a couple of times a day.”
— Glenn ‘Teddy Bear’ Sparv (#1 mixed martial arts welterweight in Finland, ranked top 100 in the world)

"I have certainly noticed a difference in my energy levels with the maca root spagyric tincture. I initially thought it would give me a strong feeling of energy (similar to a sugar rush), however the feeling is much more subtle, and I really feel prolongs my energy levels throughout the day. I no longer feel lethargic mid afternoon, and have also noticed a difference in energy if I have a second exercise session of the day at lunchtime.”
— David McMahon (Bangkok, Thailand)

“Anyone interested in alchemical spagyric herbalism MUST check out what Paul Hardacre and Marissa Newell are creating! I take the Mare Maia coriander / cilantro and turmeric daily! I will never forget tasting these for the first time! Transported me back to India and the power of true alchemical healing!”
— Craig Williams (Ayurvedic Acharya, Clinical Herbalist and Acupuncturist, and author of Cave of the Numinous)

“I take Mare Maia’s turmeric and coriander-cilantro spagyric tinctures every day, based on my physician’s advice. In addition to these, I have enjoyed working with other types of tinctures you offer. Of late, I have particularly enjoyed your German chamomile – for me, it beats kava kava, when it comes to helping me relax and maintain focus, especially when I meditate.”
— Melissa Blythe Harrell (Austin, Texas, USA)

“Mare Maia’s garlic, goji berry, and turmeric tinctures are truly wonderful. The turmeric has improved my recovery after runs and other work-outs; my knees, prone to pain, feel great! It has also improved my skin condition, reducing inflammation and acne. Garlic and goji go great together as part of the inner alchemy of my Yoga and Tantra practice, not to mention the health benefits. Giving them a try was a great idea; I started to see results inside a week.”
— Purnacandra Sivarupa (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA)

“I use Mare Maia’s turmeric and tongkat ali spagyric tinctures and love them both. The turmeric is basically a cure for joint pain. The tongkat ali really gives me a boost for the hard workouts. Whether you are a pro athlete or just someone who likes to work out and be healthy, these products really help with all the nagging little things that come from intense exercise.”
— Ryan McKelvy (MMA fighter, Chiang Mai, Thailand)

“In the world of big pharma thank you Marissa Newell and Paul Hardacre for reigniting this ancient art.”
— Dalia Mikhail (Brisbane, Australia)

“I take spagyric tinctures of graviola leaf, sage, chamomile, garlic, and goji berry. I have found that a combination of all these in rotation two times per day yields the best results. I take garlic, goji and graviola in the morning, 10 drops each in juice. Then garlic, sage and chamomile in the evening, 10 drops each in juice. Normally, by this time of year, after rains and humidity, I would have succumbed to a progression of colds by now. This has not been the case this year, so the main function of all these in combination seems to be helping boost the immune system.”
— Aye (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

“I’ve been enjoying a cocktail of spagyric tinctures from Mare Maia over the past few weeks including garlic, sage, goji berry, German chamomile, turmeric, and coriander-cilantro. The most definitive improvement I have found is an increase in energy levels and general well being. Also the anti-inflammatory properties of the turmeric have noticeably helped with my back pain. Thanks Paul Hardacre, Marissa Newell and Balthus for all the effort that goes into the extraction process and by bringing a little alchemy to Chiang Mai!”
— Aaron Faulkner (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

“I have been using your tinctures for few months now, but as an energy intuitive guide I am very sensitive to the pure and natural and enjoyed your tinctures and their healing powers from the start … Your great presence is felt in your force to expand and grow and provide what once was your own alchemy [work] in your private laboratory to a valuable healing power that many people can enjoy. Anyone who tries your tinctures will enjoy the same movement of expansion and healing that you bring into them … May people discover your gift and add this valuable alchemy product to their life.”
— Shelly Sharon ((Modena, Italy)
