Red Maca comes from light pink to dark maroon roots and has been studied extensively since the early 2000s. Research has revealed that it stands out from Black or Yellow Maca in several ways. Red Maca:
- Has increased nutrient levels, including glucosinolates and other phytonutrients
- Is the best color for increasing mood and energy levels
- Works slightly better for bone strength and density
- Is the only Maca confirmed to support prostate health
- Generates the most positive effect on wound healing
We have written an extensive article on this topic complete with the citations of each study listed above. If you are interested you can read more about it here.
As for the potential benefits of Red Maca capsules we are able to share the main reasons why our customers take them, based on our years of experience in addition to all the research available.
- Helping support female fertility and libido (We recommend Black Maca for male fertility)
- Increasing bone density
- Reducing the symptoms of menopause
- Getting stronger bones
- Enhancing energy
- Achieving a better mood
- Supporting prostate health
- Boosting overall hormone levels
While there are many potential Maca benefits, it’s important to note that Maca is a natural food and takes time to work. Most people see the initial effects of Maca after taking it for at least 3-4 weeks. At 4 capsules a day, one jar will last you about 50 days and that is enough time for most people to begin to feel the initial benefits of the product. Also note that results do vary from person to person.
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 traveling, camping etc. Ounce for ounce or gram for gram, they are somewhat more expensive than the powders. If you’d like to try the Red Maca root powder we do offer it in 3 sizes as well.

I have severe hot flashes and I can't take hormones. I've tried every kind of natural help that I could find with no results. With the Red Maca capsules, I'm now on my third week and my hot flashes are reduced in both intensity and duration. I will try the powder next.
Taking 6 caps, with vitex, every morning. Cycle went from a stagnant 40 days, to a healthy 26. PMS, and cramping, greatly reduced. I'm 43, and trying for a third pregnancy. Battling endometriosis, adenomyosis, ovarian cysts, tilted urerus, dysmenorrhea, and fibromyalgia. Ordering another tub.
I tried Maca powder from my local health food store as I had heard of it's positive affects on hormones, I couldn't get it down, it was terrible. After doing some research, I read about The Maca Team's Maca and decided to give it a try (I bought the Red Maca capsules and have been taking 12 a day). I felt a difference after a few days and now after two or three months, I feel like a different person. I was having trouble sleeping, brain fog, irritability, hot flashes, you name it....they are all gone. I have also lost ten pounds that I have been struggling with for a year, not sure if it's from the Maca or not, but I will take it. I am a much happier person and on a more even keel... Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am ordering more today. ;0)
I have noticed so much improvement in my day to day activities. I have PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) and had been recently struggling with a lot of the symptoms, especially fatigue. Over the course of a month I noticed my energy level increasing, my mood is better, and many other improvements. I will tell you this is not an overnight miracle pill. It will take time to work, but is totally worth it. I plan on continuing to purchase the raw organic capsules. I was worried because I tend to have a sensitive stomach but notice no irritations or discomfort while taking these. Great product. So glad I found The Maca Team!
I use the red maca for endocrine support. I find the maca team mace to be very high quality and I feel the difference using it.
I really like this product, I do feel a little more energy and more relaxed, but I mainly got it to get my cycle regulated and so far it hasn't done anything for me yet, but I've only been taking it for about a month. I'm sure it will help me soon and then I'll go back, update this review and give it 5 starts
Thank you for a safe, high-quality maca product! And your website is superb…extremely informative!
I have been ordering Red Maca capsules for some time now, and have found this among the best quality products you can get. Consistent excellence in production. I find the Maca very helpful.
I am highly satisfied with the Red Maca capsules....pleasant tasting,easy to swallow. Good value for your money.
I have definitely noticed an improvement in my energy levels since starting to take this product ten days ago. Thank you for your fast and efficient service too - the delivery arrived in France in double quick time.
I ordered this for several reasons, hormonal balance, hair thinning and only have been using for less than a month. I have not noticed anything yet, but I'm going to order another month and see if I see anything at all, it's hard to tell.
I took them as directed and didn't really notice a difference. But when I ran out, I discovered that I had been getting a lot of energy from them, and didn't realize it until the energy was missing.
Wonderful product, fast shipping and excellent customer service!
Product has helped me in more ways than one. Especially my hormonal acne along with other steps I have taken to balance my hormones.
I suffered the hot flames of hell for a year. After trying everything else, I found maca root. I am sleeping through the night again!
I tried 2 other brands before I found organic Red Maca. Your product is fresh as they were not. Thank you so much. I am going to be a steady customer
This is my first time trying red maca so far is doing what you supposed to be doing I like it
I have tried everything from bio-identical hormones to diet and anti-depressant meds, and all things between. My health has gradually worsened over the last decade. My symptoms were dreadful and a real concern. I was diagnosed with clinical depression over 7 years ago, though I always knew that this was a bi-product of hormonal imbalance due to my age and stage of life. My cycle had become so unpredictable with heavy bleeding, at times making it impossible to leave the house. Life is demanding and I knew this couldn't continue. The stress was enormous, I am a wife and a mother with a life that needs me to be present. Several months ago I made a well thought out decision to come away from medication, I did so under medical supervision and fairly slowly. Once I had managed this difficult transition and following much research into Maca and it's benefits, I purchased the Raw Organic Red capsules and began on a dose of 4 daily. As I got closer to the end of a cycle I took the dose up by 2 capsules to 6. I began to notice a change early, day four, in my energy levels. Also, my moods were remarkably stable, free of meds, for the first time in years, a true shock in all the good ways. I was waiting for the meltdown but it's yet to happen! I have suffered from genital psoriasis and vaginal atrophy for months, as an added bonus, which was making life very unpleasant. I noticed, after the first week or so on Maca, that the persistent itching was diminishing and the area was looking less raw, this is continuing to improve daily, such a huge relief. My skin began to calm, others noticed I was looking rested and that my eyes were brighter. My hair, which was dry and unmanageable began to feel softer and I was using less product to control the frizz factor. I was also concerned about worsening heart palpitations which have now gone completely. My sleep patterns are returning to normal and I feel that I'm now actually resting as I sleep. I have had several headaches, nothing too severe, which I expected as my hormones levels began to regulate and adjust. My first period was normal, back to five days, regular, normal bleeding and no PMS or discomfort! My libido was almost non-existent and this too has been improving slowly, remembering it has been a little over ONE month on the Maca. Life is steadily getting back on track and my only regret is not jumping on the Maca train years earlier. I hope that women everywhere will have the good sense to go this route before conventional medications and unnatural alternatives. Truly, I was so disheartened and overwhelmed by my symptoms, almost ready to just give in and suffer through in the hope I would survive the ordeal. My mother had suffered similarly at this age and she lost her life to breast cancer as a result. I am so sad that I was too young to help her, (she died at 53 when I was 20), but it is not too late for those of us who are still breathing to help ourselves. And who would have believed that it could be so simple, certainly not me, not the way I was feeling. Testimony that nature provides if we take the time to be in control of our own health. I would like to sincerely express my gratitude to you, for the first time in many years I feel I have a real chance at a full life. You will always have my loyalty and my support and I am spreading the good word as we speak. Still early days but so far, truly amazing!! I can now look forward, with a positive perspective, to the day ahead . Yeah for me!!
So far I am very happy with it. It's been 3 weeks since surgery and I have not needed to be put on hormon pills. I am attributing it to maca so I plan to be a faithful buyer of the product from now on, as well as it help curve my appetite. I say that is a win, win.
Excellent product easy to digest definitely provides energy to assist with my extremely non-stop days
I started taking this when I went off of the BC pill. It's not a magic bullet but I believe it has definitely helped curb hormonal side effects and keep me balanced.
Had a friend recommend maca for menopausal issues and now that I have used it I wouldn't live without it! This particular brand and type keeps all my symptoms at bay. As an added bonus I just feel better and more energetic. Love it!
I am very pleased with the red maca capsules. I have tried a few different brands and this is the best. So happy my friend referred me as I feel more alert and energetic. I use the powder form for smoothies and when I am in a hurry, I take the capsules. I am happy to use a natural product for my menopause symptoms. I would highly recommend to others.
The effect is to know immediately the next day. Satisfaction, I'll buy again. Recommended.
I have been taking the red maca vegan capsules for a month now. I take 3 in the morning and then 3 in the afternoon around 2pm. The biggest improvement I have noticed so far in such a short period of time is that my libido has returned. I will continue to take this supplement for that alone. My night sweats have stopped. I am still having hot flashes. But, not as many as before. Hopefully, given more time as my body adjusts to this supplement I will continue to see greater improvement with that.
I haven't tried them yet as I want to finish my Premium Maca root powder. Maca a great product.
My rating is only three stars because any improvement, if any, takes time: Almost any supplement will take about 2-3 months of usage before noticing a concrete change or none at all, especially since I am not taking the recommended dosage of 8 capsules per day. I take two to four. What's the rush? Lots of folks 'want' maca to work for them immediately. I've read all the hype. But it comes down to objective results over time, not subjective opinions like "I feel more energy than ever before." There is no magic bullet. The closest we come is a healthy mind in a healthy body: Diet, exercise, organic food, meditation, constructive thinking and behavior is the secret. Best wishes in your search.
I've been taking the product for about a month and I feel amazing. I was feeling run down and very hormonal. My mood has improved so much and I don't feel tired anymore. I have had the best night sleep in the last month. I'm looking forward to using Maca as part of my daily life. Thank you for an amazing product.
I only bought the capsule form of this because its easier for my schedule, and I am a terrible smoothie maker! haha! Well anyways, I've had PCOS for a few years now. Being that their is no cure for it birth control is the only recommended medication to help keep it under control. I stop taking birth control because of the weight gain and seriously did not have a period for a year. After two weeks of taking red maca I naturally had a normal regular period. I was in awe. I feel so much better knowing I can live the rest of my life not on birth control. I am so pleased with this product and I have turned so many of my girlfriends onto it as well.
Making Stomach hurt but, working to regulate hormones. I am going to stop this and try the gelatanized maca pills and see if that makes a difference in upset stomach.
