Our Gelatinized Premium 3 Color Blend Maca Capsules contain 100% Gelatinized Black, Red and Yellow Maca powders. All of our Maca powders are carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. They come from an organic farming co-op near Junin, Peru, the traditional farming area for Maca. We work only with producers who own and manage their lands at a local grass roots level. The co-op of farmers is committed both to organic farming and to producing the highest quality Maca products available anywhere. We're very happy to support their work.

Our Gelatinized Premium 3 Color Blend Maca capsules contain 100% Black, Red and Yellow Maca powders. We call it “Heritage Harvest” because the 3 color blend is the way that people in the Andes have traditionally eaten Maca. What makes this Maca “premium” is the way in which it is processed. Instead of being sundried, Maca roots are fresh processed immediately after harvest. After coming out of the ground they are cleaned in a citrus solution, ground into a pulp and low temperature dried. This special processing leaves more glucosinolates in the final product.
Gelatinization is a process in which Maca is heated to high temperatures (160F / 70C). The heat causes the starch molecules in Maca to irreversibly dissolve and the result is a powder that has had some of its nutrients compromised but is easier to digest than raw Maca. It’s important to note that nothing is added to Maca during the gelatinization process. This type of Maca:
- Comes from a modern approach to processing Maca developed in the past 25 years
- Is fresh Processed - Maca roots are dried in dehydrators immediately after harvest
- Has higher glucosinolate content - nutrients which may help prevent cancer
- Is much stronger tasting - has a more noticeable Maca flavor with more spiciness
- Is limited in supply since it must be produced from fresh roots during annual harvest (June-August)
Advantages of taking Maca in capsules:
Our capsules have unique benefits as compared to Maca powders. First, when using capsules, it's easier to get an exact dosage. Second, for people who shy away from the taste of Maca, capsules are a great alternative. Finally, Maca capsules are particularly useful on the go. They are easy to take on business trips, when travelling, camping etc.
Best Used For:
Given the special handling and combination of Maca colors, Gelatinized Premium 3 Color Blend Maca Powder is in our opinion the best all-purpose Maca for both Men and Women. Please note that results may vary from person to person. Compare all of our Maca powders here.

Love this stuff and have reordered several times!
It has returned
I've been taking the gelatinised caps for some time now as I don't have a stomach so easier to digest and the capsules are convenient. The Maca has many benefits apart from boosting libido, it definitely helps keep me focused, energetic and in a positive mood.
Maca has helped me be more focus but unfortunately it's has not helped with my hot flashes or libido and has given me a few female issues. I'm undecided if i will continue using this product. I'm bummed cause I've heard great things
My husband and I both take the gelatinized premium Maca capsules. We both have noticed we feel better, more energy and more frisky! I have digestive issues so that's why I chose the gelatinized capsules and I have no problem with them. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think I feel more grounded when I'm taking this supplement! We plan on continued use of this product.
I was taking the red raw but read about how sometimes a body might react better to the gelatinized ones. So I decided to try this one. Within two weeks my semi hot flashes stopped. I was getting them even with the red maca. But not anymore. I'm going to start taking these now. Love them.
I'm not tired even when exercising and fasting. Also for the men, be prepared to have morning wood again lol!
I had been taking Gelatinized Black Maca Powder in my smoothies for months prior to ordering the Gelatinized Premium Maca Capsules. I originally ordered Gelatinized Black Maca Powder for its ability to help improve stamina, strength, and bone density - key for my training as a rock climber and obstacle course racer. I have a few big races coming up in the next six months, so I decided to try out Gelatinized Premium Maca Capsules for some extra support.
I knew the Premium would be much stronger than the Black, especially in its Gelatinized form. The serving size is listed as 8 capsules, but I decided to start out with 2 capsules per day. I really like that I can take very specific, incremental doses - I began by taking one at breakfast and opening another capsule into my smoothie to enjoy after my workout.
Within two weeks I noticed my libido was much higher than average - not what I was expecting but definitely welcome. I will continue to take Gelatinized Black Maca Powder together with the Gelatinized Premium Maca Capsules. Maca holds such an incredible life force; I can clearly see and feel the benefits from taking it in as many ways as I can.
I have been taking this now for 4 /5 weeks and before that another maca for over 3 months and after reading all these positive reviews I am so disappointed and feel I am the only one where it is not doing anything !!!!! I still have hot flushes every couple of hours during the night have no interest in sex and still have weight gain at times feel Iam slowly going nuts with the menopause syptoms what am I doing wrong or does it not always work for everyone before I order another tub. No energy either
Gratis product. I have try different brands but this is the best. And if you have digestive problems, the gelatinized option is your option.
This helps me in the bedroom when I need it, and it gives me energy thru out the day..
