Gelatinized Premium Red Maca Root Powder, Certified Organic, Fair Trade, Non-GMO and Vegan

Our Gelatinized Premium Red Maca Root Powder is carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled.  It comes from an organic farming cooperative in and around Junin, Peru. We work only with producers who own and manage their lands at a local grass roots level.  The cooperative of farmers is committed both to organic farming and to producing only the highest quality Maca products.

Our Gelatinized Premium Red Maca powder is made from 100% Red 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 Red 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)

Best Used For:

Red Maca powder has been shown, under phytonutrient analysis, to be higher in certain compounds that support the body in antioxidant and antitumoral activity.  We recommend it:

  • For men looking to use Maca for prostate support
  • For women's fertility and libido (We recommend Black Maca for male fertility)
  • For bone density - most important for women and children
  • For everyone wanting to experience the highest antioxidant and nutrient levels of all Maca powders

Please note that results may vary from person to person.

    extremely helpful for reducing symptoms due to hormonal fluctuations or menopause in women

    I have always had PMDD, but I started getting new and more severe symptoms in my 40s. Since I started taking this product my anxiety has considerably decreased and so have my depressive symptoms. Sometimes I have almost no premenstrual symptoms now, and this is a first for me as I have had terrible problems with it all my life.

    If you are very prone to and sensitive to side effects medications that alter brain chemistry, as I am, and if you also get side effects when starting maca, try starting with a tiny dose. I dropped my starting dose to 1/8 of a teaspoon per day after being hit hard by the recommended dose of one tbsp. Now I take 1 1/2 tbsp per day. The recommended dose for perimenopausal symptoms is between 1 and 2 tbsp per day, but maca is a powerful herb, and you may need to start with a small dose and increase it gradually to get there.

    I have IBS and did have some intestinal upset when first taking gelatinized maca. But this went away after about a week as my body habituated to it. Now I have no problem digesting it.

    This plant is extremely helpful for reducing symptoms due to hormonal fluctuations or menopause in women. I wish that I had learned about it years ago. I strongly recommend it to my female friends when they talk about having psychological and physical symptoms brought on by hormonal changes/fluctuations.

    Great Product

    The 'ORGANIC GELATINIZED PREMIUM RED MACA POWDER' has a mild flavour and certainly is a premium product.
    The delivery was very prompt and well within the dates given. The only downside to ordering this product online to Australia was the postage cost. I was going to order multiple packets but it was going to apply the postage cost of $26.27 USD to each packet.
