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.
