Our Raw Premium Black Maca 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. The level of glucosinolates is standardized at above 1% in our Raw Premium Black Maca. 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
- Is never heated over 105F / 40C
- 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)
- Costs more as the process is more labor and equipment intensive
- Is the most complete and potent all-around Maca available

Enjoy the day!
I really love all the organic Black and Red Maca. I mix them both together and make a Banana, Blueberry & Strawberry smoothie every morning. I am 64 and still working and the Maca give me energy through out the day. Great product, thank you.
I have used two different formulations of the powdered Maca and was pleased with each.
I believe a body could take any form of Maca from the Macateam and recieve physical and mental benefits from the consumption thereof. I am a long-time customer and really could not be happier with any aspect of... everything! Believe me, if I have written that phrase before, I don't recall it.
Seems to be a beneficial supplement.. I do notice an increase in energy and maybe a little more focus. I would like to see a starter pack with a medium size selection of all forms to determine effectiveness for individual concerns. I order the 3 color to cover all bases but wonder if I would better address needs with another option.
The MACA TEAM are great.. order fulfillment is fast.. packaging is great... selections seems comprehensive.. prices seem OK... Would HIGHLY recommend !
Since I’ve been taking the Maca powder, I gotta say, I feel the difference in my energy and digestive system. The difference is a positive one.
Wow, I can't believe that I have been using this product since mid July 2018!
In general, The Maca Team offers an excellent family of products. I have now used both the Premium and Non-Premium brands, and have found real benefit in both versions.
Any differentiation related to taste was a non-issue for me.
Try the Premium version so you can have a measure of comparison; everyone's body responds differently.
I would recommend this product as much as I would recommend the non-premium version. Frankly, I like both versions but I am still trying to figure out why I would pay more for one version over the other, aside from the claim of the higher-anti-cancer-nutrient properties in the Premium version.
I have been consuming different forms of maca for over 15 years from just about every popular brand name company out there and can say without a doubt this is the best so far. I don't hesitate to go straight for the taste test of the powder itself with only water to wash it down to see the full flavor profile...that way I can really experience whether or not it has that spicy earthy kick which is a tell sign of its potency / quality / nutritional makeup and density. This maca make me feel as though I have been getting ripped off for 15 years and should have been ordering from the Maca Team. Yes, I will be purchasing Black and Red Premium maca from this company as long as its available...one of my favorites things is to make a few warm cups a matcha tea and mix it together. Thanks for the goods!
about the 6th time I took the product by putting some in my protein shake 3 grams jacked my heart rate thru the roof , not good !
Hi Thomas, Thank you for sharing. We are careful to point out that people with high blood pressure should start very small with Maca and keep an eye on their pressure and modify accordingly. Maca stimulates blood circulation and can affect blood pressure and the use of blood pressure medicines that way. As always, we encourage you to consult with a health care professional in terms of taking Maca. - The Maca Team
Much stronger ten the red, but it is more powerful. Hard o the stomach...
When I received the Black Maca I did not have any specific expectations. I started out putting three teaspoons of it in my morning protein drink first thing after waking up. On the very first day I could feel a little increase in energy and more positive clarity in mood. Also a positive response when exercising. I have been impressed, will order again and have recommended to several people.
This is a great product from a great company. IÕve taken their black maca for over two years now and at age 71, still have stamina, strength and endurance to ski, hike, bike, golf and run as I did years ago. You can easily see this is more than a business to the family who runs the company. They have a passion for excellence and quality in their products.
I bought this product for low testosterone and although the jury is still out on this as I am awaiting blood work in the coming weeks, I can say I am feeling invigorated which means a lot to me being 61 and obese.
Black Maca Powder Powerhouse Product
I have tried different Maca powders. In my opinion The Maca Team Premium Black Maca Root Powder is the best I have tried. I can definitely say I do feel more energized when using this product. When I first started the changes were subtle, but noticeable. My first reaction was am I just saying this because the product description stated it? After using Premium Black Maca for some months now, I can definitely say I am more energized.
I recommend The Maca Team. I also like the information The Maca Team offers to educate on Maca and the history of this amazing root. Keep up the good work! Peace
Very high quality product.
Never disappointed when I order from this site...
This will be my 3rd order of this fine product. It was professionally packaged on arrival as usual and its quality is excellent for price..This product gives you an added energy boost and keeps you feeling "UP" during the day...I would recommend this product to anyone.
have been using your product for about 2 years i cant identifie its direct effect but seems to aid me in my very very busy life style
i add maca with other amino s
i take about 10/15 grams maca daily
I've been taking 3-5 TBSP of black maca a day for stress, libido and energy. If it worked 1/2 as well for one of those functions, I would still take it. As it is, this is my current favorite supplement. Seems to be helping my weight training, feeling less stress, and getting into the zone.
The effect on libido is very strong.
I've tried different Maca over the last two years and this Premium Black Maca is the best. Mixes easily and tastes better than others.
I will never order from another Maca distributor because of the superior quality of this Maca.
Been drinking maca easily for over a decade. I've tried pretty much every brand and every color out there. The Maca Team "Raw Black Maca" is by far my most favorite one. ( haven't gone back to any other one since I found it) I can really feel drastic performance increase during strenuous exercise from it.
Weirdly I'm not crazy about the taste of any maca but when it's mixed in smoothies I can't tell it's even there. Just a huge fan of the results.
Got the raw this time bc it said it was stronger but I feel like the Premium was stronger.
I have been buying various maca products from The Maca Team for the last few years with very good results. However the new Premium Raw Black Maca is really a giant improvement over the other products I have tried. It tastes great, dissolves easily & works quickly. This product is a major breakthrough & I highly recommend it. Service & prompt shipping adds to the good experience.
In general, I have ordered the non-premium black maca version for a long while.
My results have been positive. Now, when I was asked to switch to the latest iteration, I really can't comment about the effectiveness of this product. The four-star review is being extended because I do believe in The Maca Team's commitment in general.
The Maca Team has tried to differentiate how this product is different from the original. Aside from the way the product is fabricated, we were told that this version has more nutrients that may be anti-cancerous versus the original version that have nutrients that are linked to hormone health.
All of which, from a consumer standpoint, the claims are hand waving and not quantifiable. Therefore, I honestly can't tell you whether the Premium brand is better or even different.
Moreover, I suspect after I use the Premium brand, I really don't know whether I will be able to communicate any subtle differences. However, as I stated earlier, in general I have had positive benefits in using black maca, irrespective of whether or not the brand is original or premium.
I have been using this version for almost two weeks as of this review.
Finally, if in fact I can't differentiate the difference, quantifiably say from a blood panel or urine sample for example, I'll probably switch back to the original.
