Why Should You Buy Maca Powder?

Posted by The Maca Team on 26th Mar 2024

If you’ve spent much time navigating The Maca Team’s site, you’ve noticed that we offer our maca root in a wide variety of formulations. Maca isn’t a “one size fits all” product, and we believe everyone should be able to find a way to enjoy maca root that works right for them.

So what are some reasons that you might choose maca root powder?

Maca Powder is Affordable


Our raw maca root powders are by far the most affordable options on our website. You have the option of purchasing them in three different sizes of foil-lined food-grade pouches: 8oz, 1lb, and 2.2lb. That will get you anywhere between 25 to 111 servings at 9g daily, and you can expect a shelf life of 24 months from our powdered maca bags as long as you keep them out of direct sunlight.

Due to lower processing costs, our maca powders tend to be less expensive than our maca capsules and liquid maca extracts. The work that goes into preparing raw maca powder is simple: after harvesting, the maca roots are sorted by color and then dried in the sun. They’re then ground into powder before being shipped to The Maca Team for final packaging before going on to our customers. It’s a fairly straightforward process, which means the savings get passed on to the buyer. In short, powdered maca is the best way to get the most bang for your buck.

Maca Powder is Good For You


Our raw, premium, and gelatinized maca root powders are just that - maca root powder. Produced from organic, non-GMO maca root that’s certified Fair Trade, you’ll never have to worry about any additives or fillers in your maca powder like you might when purchasing from other retailers. We pride ourselves on being as transparent as possible about where our Peruvian-grown maca comes from and how it’s processed before making it to the consumer. Most of our maca products contain only maca root powder, so you can buy from The Maca Team confident that you’re getting your money’s worth.

Maca Powder is Versatile


How should you enjoy your maca root powder? There’s no right or wrong way! It can be as easy as stirring a teaspoon of our organic gelatinized tri-color maca root powder into a glass of water in the morning. Your daily dose of maca can be as simple or as complex as you’d like it to be. Some customers, like our sponsored athletes, mix their maca root powder into pre-workout blends like this maca protein bodybuilder’s smoothie.



  • 2-3 t of Maca Powder – We recommend Raw Black Maca as it’s the best for muscle building and stamina
  • 1/4 cup hulled hemp seeds
  • 1 cup hemp seed milk
  • 2 bananas


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy this muscle builder smoothie immediately.

Are you a creature of habit? Consider mixing a teaspoon of maca powder into your usual cup of coffee in the morning. Maca powder can easily be added to milk, juice, or oatmeal, which are good ways to disguise the taste if you find that you’re not a particular fan. Whatever you decide, rest assured that by adding maca powder to your diet you’re making a health-conscious decision that promises to pay off in a variety of ways over time.
