Why Purchase Maca Capsules?

Posted by The Maca Team on 2nd Apr 2024

Why should you consider buying maca capsules? Maca powder is the most economical option, but it also has the potential to be messy, and is inconvenient for travel. Maca liquid extract is much more portable, but if you’re planning to fly you’ll have to chance packing it into a checked bag. And toting a glass bottle in your everyday carry also poses its own risks. So if you’re looking for ease and convenience, maca capsules win by a landslide.

Maca Capsules are Quick and Convenient


In the past, we’ve talked about the convenience of adding maca capsules to your diet. There’s no need for fussing with measurements or droppers - it’s as simple as swallowing a couple capsules with a glass of water.

Our maca capsules contain only 100% pure maca powder with no fillers or additives. It’s exactly the same maca you’d get in one of our maca powder bags, packed into a vegan capsule for ease of consumption. In capsule form, our maca powder is an easy addition to your regimen of daily supplements.

Your ideal serving of maca will depend on several factors, ranging from your size to your goals, so check out our Maca Finder product selection tool for some suggestions. Of course, we recommend consulting with a licensed healthcare provider for further advice. You’ll likely be consuming 2-8 maca capsules daily, best taken in the morning.

Which Maca Capsules Should I Take?


We offer all of our maca powders in capsule form, from our gelatinized maca to our raw premium maca powder products. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality for convenience. All of our vegan capsules contain only organic, Fair Trade Peruvian-grown maca root powder.

So which maca capsules are right for you? That depends on a number of factors. Because you won’t have to worry about whether you like or dislike the flavor of maca powder, you can more easily consume our premium maca, which typically has a more pungent flavor than raw maca. Premium maca has been fresh-processed immediately after harvesting in a dehydrator, which leaves more glucosinolates in the final product. Glucosinolates are anti-inflammatory nutrients that are believed to help combat cancer, meaning that premium maca is even more of a nutritional powerhouse than our standard raw maca.

Though consuming your maca in capsule form allows you to avoid dealing with the taste of maca if that’s something you don’t care for, it’s important to keep in mind that you’re still going to be digesting your maca capsule the same way you would loose powder. So if you have a sensitive digestive system that’s given you some trouble with maca powder in the past, you’ll want to consider checking out our gelatinized maca root capsules.

Gelatinized maca powder is made with maca roots that have been pre-cooked to cut down on the starch content, making for easier digestion. The effect on the nutritional content of the maca root is minimal, so you can be sure you’re still getting the same benefits from your gelatinized maca you would from our raw maca products.
