WHAT IS MACA?
Red maca root is more rare (25%) than yellow maca and saved for acute treatment of constitutional imbalances or alleviating more chronic conditions. Red maca benefits conditions such as specific hormonal imbalances (including PMS and menopause), anxiety, adrenal fatigue, weakened bones, poor circulation, inflammation and autoimmunity, prostate function in men and can enhance fertility in women.
Black maca root is the rarest form of maca (10%) and is thought to be the most sacred and saved for acute treatment of constitutional insufficiencies or chonic health conditions. Black maca benefits cognitive capacity (brain fog), brain function, physical energy, mental focus, mental health (as a natural antidepressant), physical performance, male fertility, sexual function and libido.

HOW TO EAT MACA?
As a starchy root vegetable Maca always needs to be cooked before consumption and should not be eaten raw, eating raw maca can actually be detrimental to your health. When it comes to raw Maca vs gelatinized Maca or activated Maca powder it is best to choose the heat treated option as it is gut safe and contains equivalent or higher levels of bioactive macamides. We only sell heat 'activated' maca (gelatinized maca) which is pre-cooked safe to consume in your smoothies, plus it tastes much better. For those wanting to know how much Maca to take, we recommend 1-1.5 tsp per day for a minimum period of 6-12 weeks to get the full health benefits. Maca is best taken in the morning to provide sustained energy throughout the day. It doesn't contain caffeine so doesn't create a stimulant effect and is safe and well tolerated by people of all ages and health conditions.
