Doctors On Maca

I give my patients a choice; either natural hormones which are made to be biodentical to human estrogen and progesterone or Peruvian maca root. The ones who have chosen to go with Peruvian maca root  are doing phenomenally well." - Dr. Cynthia Watson, M.D., Santa Monica, California.

"Peruvian maca root regulates the organs of internal secretion, such as the pituitary, the adrenal glands, and the pancreas. I have had perhaps 200 female patients whose menopause symptoms are alleviated by taking maca." - Dr. Hugo Malaspina, M.D., Lima, Peru.

"I'm amazed at how fast Peruvian maca root works...within just four days of taking Peruvian maca root capsules, M. T. went through an enormous turnaround...she feels strong and vigorous and her depression is gone." - Dr. Harold Clark, M.D., New Rochelle, N.Y.

"Peruvian maca root is very useful in treating male impotence, erectile disfunction, menopausal symptoms, and general fatigue." - Dr. Aguila Calderon, M.D., Lima, Peru.


"Using this Peruvian red maca root myself, I personally experienced a significant improvement in erectile tissue response. What I see in Peruvian maca root is a means of normalizing our steroid hormones like testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen. Therefore it has facility to forestall the hormonal changes of aging." - Dr. Garry F, Gordon, M.D., Chicago, Illinois.

Which Maca Is Right For Me?

That’s one of our most common questions.   We’ve developed this page to compare our different Macas and  make your decision easier. Please read this entire page as it should help answer most of your questions.  - Thanks!

Raw vs. Gelatinized

Maca powder

Our Raw Maca products have never been heated above 100F/40C, preserving all of the enzymes and nutrients at peak levels.  We recommend them for most people.  Raw Maca does cause slight gas or indigestion in about 5% of people.  If you have a sensitive stomach or any other digestive concerns we recommend using Gelatinized Maca instead.

Our Gelatinized Maca products are heated to high temperatures in order to remove all starch content within the root.  It takes 4 kg of Gelatinzied Maca PowderRaw Maca to make 1 kg of Gelatinized Maca (a 4:1 ratio).  This makes Gelatinized Maca more concentrated.  At the same time, however, the high heat destroys all the enzymes and alters some of the important nutrients including glucosinolates.  We recommend Gelatinized Maca for anyone with a sensitive stomach as the absence of starch makes it easy to digest.

Powder vs. Capsules

All of our products are available in both powder and capsules.

All-Bags

We have 3 sizes of Maca powder 8oz (17 servings), 1 lb (36 servings)and 1 kg (80 servings).  For people starting with Maca Powder we recommend the 1 kg sizze since it is the best deal and will give your body enough time to experience the benefits.   Ounce for ounce, Maca powders are less expensive that Maca capsules and are easy to mix in any smoothies or drinks.

Our Maca capsules come in 750mg size – 200 per bottle.  They are vegan and contain only our pure Maca powders.  Maca capsules All-Caps-Stackare an excellent choice for anyone who doesn’t like the taste of Maca as well as for anyone looking for extra convenience.

Organic-Fair

 

**ALL of our products are grown in a remote, pristine part of the Peruvian Andes.  They are GMO- free, certified organic, cultivated with respect for the land and purchased at fair trade prices.

Our Raw Products

Black Maca

Black Maca Powder

Our Black Maca is made from 100% light to dark gray Maca roots.  Studies have shown it to be the most effective Maca color for muscle building, endurance, mental focus and male libido and fertility.   Black Maca is the rarest of all Maca colors, comprising about 15% of the annual harvest.

Red Maca

Red Maca PowderOur Red Maca comes from 100% pink to purple Maca roots.  Studies have shown it to have the highest phytonutrient levels of all Maca colors.  It is the most effective type for general hormone balancing, for female fertility and for bone and prostate health.  Red Maca comprises about 25% of the annual harvest.  It is also the best tasting of all Maca powders.

Cream Maca

Cream Maca producs

Our Cream Maca comes from off white Maca roots.  Sometimes it is also referred to as “yellow Maca.”  About 60% of all Maca roots harvested are cream colored.  That makes Cream Maca the most common and least expensive of all Maca.  While it does not have all the unique properties of Black or Red Maca, Cream Maca still works to boost energy, enhance concentration and balance hormones.

Premium Maca Blend

premium maca products

Our Premium Maca powder is a proprietary blend of 40% Cream, 30% Red and 30% Black Maca roots.  It is different from our other raw Macas in that it is processed fresh rather than being sundried first.  This special handling results in higher glucosinolate content.  Premium Maca contains a minimum of 1.4% glucosinolate content where our other Raw Macas contain .8-1%.  Glucosinolates are among the most important nutrients in Maca for hormone balance.

Our Gelatinized Products

Our Gelatinized Maca blend is made from about  40% Cream, 30% Red and 30% Black Maca Roots.  4 kgs of Raw Maca are used to make 1 kg of Gelatinized Maca (4:1 ratio).  It is heated to remove all starch content, making it easier to digest and more concentrated than Raw Maca.  All of the enzymes are lost and some of the other important nutrients are lost in this process.
