Our Raw Premium Red Maca 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. The level of glucosinolates is standardized at above 1% in our Raw Premium Red 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
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

I've tried a few different powders and tinctures to balance my hormones, mostly to stop hot flashes and to feel better. This Maca powder stopped my hot flashes within a few days. I recently had blood work done and it showed my hormones are now within the normal ranges!! I highly recommend the Raw Red Maca from The Maca Team for anyone who is having hot flashes and wants to balance their hormones naturally and safely. Also, The Maca Team is one of the few companies that actually get their maca directly from Peru and not China.
Seems like it got to your blood stream faster and worked better
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!
Long story short, I lost my period a few years ago due to over exercising and not eating enough. I did lots of research, quit doing so much exercise and started eating better. I also started supplementing with Maca which has truly made a huge difference. My libido came back like a teenage kid and I find myself having more energy for other areas of life as well as better moods!
This powder is great tasting and seems superior to other Maca brands I have found in Trader Joe’s and whole foods shelves. Will definitely purchase again.
I take a lot of supplements so can't say for sure what exactly works and does not half the time; however I love this product for the taste and smell alone. I know some people apparently don't like the taste of Maca but this brand is really yummy. I also have never had any digestion issues with this brand of Maca. I am taking 9 grams per day of the Red Raw Premium- mixed in a smoothie. So if Maca is everything it's cracked up to be, and if the COA's are accurate; I would highly recommend this product.
Since taking this red maca very morning I feel more vibrant and strong, wonderful fresh product. Great prompt service, my maca arrived quickly.
I used to buy raw organic maca from another company and they discontinued it. In searching for another source three years ago I stumbled upon this website that specializes in only maca and have been a loyal customer since.
Love this Maca! Have been taking it everyday for almost a year.The taste is great in a smoothie. Most of all, I am so thankful it brought me relief from the 3 Menopausal Hot Flashes an hour I was experiencing prior to taking it. Now I may have 2 Hot Flashes a week. And I feel wonderful about it being natural & safe--& because of it--not having to take Hormone Replacement Therapy. I have more energy & feel more balanced overall! It also arrives quickly after placing an order without paying more for quicker shipping. I highly recommend this product for Menopausal women! Thank you Maca Team for providing such a fantastic,
As always, the maca team does not disappoint. Their product is always fresh and delicious and made with love. The only company I will ever trust for my maca needs. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I love it, I'm alternating it with the 3 color maca that I purchased previously, I'm very happy with the product. Thanks
Just started using this. Taste is good will use it awhile to see effects. So far great
The raw premium red maca is a gorgeous color with a lovely aroma and delicious taste. Thanks!
I've returned to the red after years of the premium mix. I like the red better; flavor, increase in energy, all around better taste.
I have been buying Maca from the Maca Team and I have been very pleased. They specialize in Maca and they do it very well.
Great info on their site and their prices are good. I know I'm getting a great product.
I read reviews that the red maca root powder helped to ease hot flashes and since I intended to stop HRT, I needed an alternative. I have used the powder for two and half weeks and have noticed a decrease in the number of hot flashes, so I am very hopeful that this trend continues.
