Our Gelatinized Premium Black Maca Capsules contain 100% Gelatinized Black Maca powder. 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 Black Maca powder is made from 100% Black Maca roots. 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. Gelatinized Premium Black 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:
Our Gelatinized Premium Black Maca root powder is specifically indicated for male fertility and libido as well as for muscle building and endurance. Research conducted in Peru in 2009 indicated that Black Maca was the best of all Maca powders for increasing sperm count and motility. In addition, we've had several reports from both male and female athletes that Black Maca is a favorite for increasing muscle mass and physical performance. Please note that results may vary from person to person.
