Is Gelatinized Maca right for you?
In terms of research on Maca, both Raw and Gelatinized powders have gotten good results in various kinds of studies. On a more anecdotal level we've received positive feedback from our customers on both types of Maca. Our overall experience is that Raw Maca powders work slighlty better than Gelatinized ones. But more important to positive results than the type of Maca powder taken is its quality and freshness. That said, if you have a generally sensitive stomach or any other issue with digestion, then Gelatinized Maca is the best choice you can make. The reason is simple. While Raw Maca can cause temporary symptoms like bloating, gas or upset stomach (in about 5% of people), the gelatinized powder simply will not do so.
Advantages of taking Maca capsules:
Using our organic 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.
We also offer Gelatinized Sundried Red Maca in powder in three different sizes.

I wanted to try to Maca to help with my hot flashes and night sweats. I started with the yellow Maca powder and quickly realized that was not for me. Taking a capsule was the better choice. Thanks to The Maca Team, my order was shipped within a day after I ordered it. After taking the red Maca for 3 weeks, 2 capsules at breakfast and 2 capsules at lunch, I have noticed the night sweats/hot flashes do not last as long and sometimes back down before going full blast. I am very pleased with the Red Maca and that I can get it in the capsule. Thank you!
Preface: I am taking this to help with (in)fertility issues. In two weeks of taking it my luteal phase increased by a day and increased by another day the following cycle. It has improved other issues as well that are too private for a public review such as this, but these capsules seem like miracle workers to me. I am so completely astounded at how well and how rapidly they are improving my health.
I love the red maca capsules they are her convient to take. I have no noticed a difference in my mood energy and weight. I originally got mace to help me gain weight and balance.my hormone levels from where I had a hysterectomy at 25 and it has done that plus more.i love.the maca product and will be purchasing me before my capsules run out
I have been taking the red gel caps for over 3 weeks now. I wake up energized with a clear head. I don't have the ups and downs of the hormonal problems. My feet hurt every day before taking this and I no longer have any pain!
First time taking it and only a few weeks in but i already feel a difference. I have soooo much energy.
I've been taking this for the last few weeks and I love it . I can go through my workouts better and I've put on some weight /muscle mass. My mood has been better.
I read on line Maca would help with Restless Leg Syndrome. Anything is worth a try. I was surprised to find other benefits listed when I researched.
I thought it might be good for both my husband and I to try for improved health.
After taking about 5 -6 capsules daily for several weeks there is no benefit whatsoever. I've still got two containers of capsules in the cupboard with no reason to continue.
Sorry you didn't have a benefit in terms of your Restless Leg Syndrome. Honestly, we've never heard of Maca associated with that. As far as other benefits, Maca is a food and does take time to work. We'd encourage you to stay with it and see what comes of taking your remaining Maca. If we can do anything to help. Please let us know.... Thanks. Mark, The Maca Team
I switched to Gelatinized Red Maca after raw Maca (from another distributor) made me nauseous and didn't seem to have any other effects. I started with the powder but I'm not fond of the taste, so I switched to the capsules, which are easier for me to take and to carry with me when I need to.
The Red Maca itself has surprised me. The boost of energy I get pretty immediately after I take it is helpful, but the biggest impact has been that when I'm consistent about taking it, I don't seem to get as many hot flashes and the ones I do get are a lot milder than they were. It took a few weeks to ramp up - I started at a low dose (1/2 tsp or 2 capsules) and have been gradually increasing, following suggestions from the folks at The Maca Team. I have only been taking Red Maca for about 2 months and not always consistently - I'm trying to get better about that and looking forward to seeing where it gets me!
I have been taking this product for 6 weeks and have found me energy level is up and my mood has improved. I have a better outlook and feel like participating in new projects around the house.
I have been trying to get pregnant for a few months, but my sex drive has been low the last few years. I think it’s just part on getting older (35) but I don’t want to accept it. I have been taking Maca for a few weeks and I noticed a difference in libido after the first week. I’m taking Gelatinized Maca because I do have a low thyroid and I read raw is not good for hypothyroidism. I’m using a digital fertility tester and it currently says I’m in peak fertility. I don’t know it that’s attributed to the Maca, but my libido definitely is. Thank you!
Before taking Red Maca, at times my premenopausal symptoms were almost unbearable...the night sweats and hot flashes at any given moment during the day made me miserable and I seemed to always look as though I just ran a marathon!
After talking with a good friend, Red Maca was recommended as an alternative to man-made synthetic prescription drugs and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. It took a few weeks for me and my body to adjust but it is a substantial improvement over what I was experiencing before. I highly recommend Red Maca!!!!
I love my red gelatinized maca caps!
It is as if they add a youth hormone into my body : my breasts appear larger and firmer ( even more so if I exercise them ) as they once did before menopause. As if estrogen is put back into my body!
No stomach upsets at all - I do not take the full dosage as I am petite and sensitive ... 3-4 caps every morning with vit C at breakfast
Again, if I faithfully exercise, it also rounds and lifts my butt area
will not be without
I've taken the gelatinized red maca for over 6 months and it help so much with regulating my monthly cycle when I would have several months up to years apart from my regulatory. I was told that I needed to gain weight and it would get back to normal. Being diabetic I gained a little weight and still irregular. I did some research on maca and started taking it and the irregularity started to go away to where my cycle comes every month. My family members tell me that they suffer of irregularity also and I've suggested this to them. It really helps.
I didn't realize how potent the gelatanized maca root capsules are..
with that being said I started taking 6 pills a day on an empty stomach.
My digestive system was out of control and I now take 1 pill a day.
This product is great. My mood is is much better and temper. I feel my hormones have been regulated both emotionally and physically. I love it. The only con that really isn't a negative is the smell. But the benefits far out weigh the small of the maca powder.
I have tried a couple of different forms of the Red Maca, and find it pleasant and energizing in a subtle way, and it seems to have improved my hot flashes a bit. I got the capsule form for traveling, as it's not always easy to mix powder. They are the same excellent substance, but one has to take a lot - suggestions seem to range from 6 to 12 (which was also a little hard to figure out). I prefer having my Maca all at once, as I'll forget otherwise, and I have a hard time taking so many at a time. However, if you preferred to space it out over a day these would work well.
I stopped taking thyroid medicine after almost a decade of changing and increasing doses and adding meds, with little to no success. I used red maca to go off, but it tasted soooooo nasty that I stopped eventually. I have been having sleep troubles (taking forever to fall asleep, waking up several times in the night, and feeling HOT then COLD... generally miserable) So I felt I should try this again. The capsules are the key for me. MUCH better than adding the powder to my smoothie! Why ruin that thing? Enjoy food. Swallow a capsule. Win/Win! I'm sleeping much better now and that makes everything MUCH better!
Gelatinized Red Maca Powder capsules started working as soon as i took them the first time! My mood leveled out since the first dose. Over the few days, my skin started to heal from acne and acne scars. Red Maca is allowing my body to be in balance to become healthy, and i feel it!
I highly recommend this to anyone for any mood/hormone/emotional/physical/skin/any health concerns!
Excellent product. High quality. Very satisfied. Thanks.
Since I turned 28, my hormones have been crazy! (Attributed to going off birth control although not trying to get pregnant) The maca has helped level my hormones dramatically. I can get through a menstrual cycle again without severe pain and cramps. Definitely improved my quality of life - I highly recommend!
This product is amazing, and I highly recommend it. I had been on the birth control pill for 17 years and only recently got off of it. My cycle was thrown off completely, and I suspected that it was due to a hormonal imbalance from being on the pill for such a long time. I took the red maca capsules for about 2.5 months and they worked amazingly! My cycle is now like clockwork every 28 days and my cramps are minimal. It gave me increased energy, and my libido increased tremendously as well! The only downsides are that the product caused me to suffer from extreme bloating, so when that happened, I just stopped taking it for about 7 days and then resumed taking it. I could only take 4 red maca capsules a day, otherwise the bloating was too much. It also caused me to gain weight (about 6 pounds). But because of all of the amazing benefits, it was still worth it. If you are considering using maca, I highly recommend getting it from the Maca team. Their product is high quality and offers so many great benefits!
All going well with no tummy upsets so far.
I purchased the gelatinised red maca capsules expecting them to be very hard to take purely because of the flavour from every other brand I've tried is horrible. I wish had bought the powder because I'm actually opening the capsules and tipping it into my morning smoothie! Also noticed an increase in libido and energy
I was introduced to Maca powder in November by a family member and it has been doing wonders for my hot flashes & night sweats. Only problem is that it would upset my stomach, so I decided to buy Gelatinized Red Maca capsules. I started taking only 4 per day and find I still have an upset stomach so I'm planing to lower the dose to only two capsules.
The amazing news is that the hot flashes and night sweats have decreased immensely!!!! Thank you Maca Team for this great natural solution! Blessings from a very happy customer :)

I am a 48 year old female and have used the gelatinized red maca for over a year. I wanted to wait to write a review because so many times I try something that seems to work initially and then stops working. I am in perimenopause and have adenomyosis. I first took natural oral progesterone which worked fantastic, until the company stopped making it and the transdermal progesterone did not work for me. Then I came across articles about maca trying to find something to help my symptoms. I chose The Maca Team maca and after one month my irregular bleeding became a normal 28 day cycle which was consistent until I went off the maca for one month and started having symptoms again. I went back on the maca and I'm back to "normal". This product has: decreased my hot flashes/night sweats substantially, regulated my cycle, and normalized my mood. I still have some other perimenopausal symptoms; however, this is still a miracle food for me!!!!
I have been using maca powder for about 9 months. I began using it to help with libido & noticed a nice increase within about a week. My husband had been taking a testosterone booster (not a natural one) & didn't want to give the maca a try since he is skeptical of any kind of natural remedies. I finally convinced him to give it a try & he has been wildly impressed with the results. So have I ;-) He is 51 years old.
I began having hot flashes in June 2015. Someone recommended Maca and after researching the various brands I decided on Maca Team Red Maca I started out with 2 for a week, then increased to 3 for a few days, then finally 4. My hot flashes and night sweats stopped by week 4! I am continuing to take 4 a day and still no hot lashes or night sweats after 2 months. I will continue to take.
I have taken a few different brands of Macca. I started this brand and in just a few days I could tell the product was pure as claimed. Energy level way up in just a few days.
Highly recommend this product as being true to claims.
Taking Maca Red has gotten rid of the hot flashes and sweats........ wonderful.
Made the decision to switch companies due to customer service mainly. Your dosages are higher than my previous company so I am trying to work with finding what's right for me. It has not subsided any anxiety at this point and if I up the dosage it seems to bring it on more? I am also a midlife woman going thru extreme midlife changes so not sure if its just my hormones but last 2 yrs Maca has balanced this...just not landing on the right dosage yet!
I love The Maca Team's gelatinized maca root! I trust and believe that I am getting exactly what I ordered. I have gotten great results and will continue to order maca root from The Maca Team. Customer service and delivery time is bar none! My sister is now a Maca Team and maca root fan as well.
First, I ordered the Raw Red Maca hoping to reap all the nutrients as stated , but the Raw Red Maca was hard on my belly, with gas, bloating and the runs when taking all 8 in the a.m. - it seemed to lessen the intensity of the hot flashes and frequency although i still had a few when I was sleeping. So I switched to the gelatinized Red Maca and started taking 4 in a.m upon waking and 4 at lunchtime -not too late. Now ALL MY HOT FLASHES HAVE STOPPED! It's hard for me to image that a simple switch to the gelatinized would work so well for me! I was a mess having one hot flash per hour throughout the day and night to having NONE! Sadly though neither has helped my libido or weight loss. I switched my husband from the Raw Red to the Gelatinized Black Maca too for all the reasons stated above (except, of course, the hot flashes)- but there has been no improvement in that area either (he's 47, I'm 55)- and unfortunately while there is less gas and bloating the scale hasn't budged for either of us and neither has our sex life- both stuck in neutral. However it's such a relief to be without the hot flashes - at least now I can function. I hope it continues this way- I am a repeat customer and will not do without this product.
First Thing, I want to write is that I used different type of maca but the results were not as i got from this product. Its simply amazing, You will feel more energized and healthy. The quality of this product is superb and its my request to the maca team to maintain it as well.
