Raw Sundried Yellow Maca Powder Certified Organic, Fair Trade, GMO-Free, Vegan and Raw

Maca root powder is a beloved part of life in the high Andes.  Yellow Maca is the most common of all colors, making up about 60% of the annual harvest.  Ours is made from roots traditionally grown and harvested on an organic farming co-op in a remote pristine part of the Peruvian Andes. . Yellow Maca has been the most researched of all 3 Maca colors.   To date hundreds of studies, all available publicly in the Pubmed database, have found it to be useful for energy building, fertily, hormone balance, mental focus and more.    Yellow Maca is indeed a nutritional powerhouse, containing nearly all essential amino acids and free fatty acids, significant levels of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and C, minerals iron, magnesium, zinc and calcium, a high concentration of bio-available protein and nutrients unique to Maca called macaenes and macamides. Maca is also an "adaptogen," or rare form of plant that is thought to raise the overall life force energy of those who consume it.


Our Raw Yellow Maca is what we started taking years ago when we found our farming cooperative in Peru.   We’ve always seen it to have a very positive effect on overall hormone health and balance.  This is the very Maca that has been consumed daily for over 2000 years to boost energy, promote, fertility, increase mental focus and more.  Please note that results may vary from person to person.

    Sleeping like a baby

    Heard that Maca helps to improve sleep. Bought the Yellow Maca and gave it a try. Has been sleeping like a baby ever since the first day I took it. No more vivid dreams and tiredness when I wake up. In fact, I think the sleep quality has improved so much that I came to wake up around 6am naturally bright and clear, where as I used to wake up at 7:30am still feeling sleepy. The taste of Maca is not bad at all. For me, I prefer to take it in the morning with some chicken/beef broth. I think the taste goes better with savory food, rather than the usual sweet recommendations like smoothie or coffee. Bought the 1 kg packet, and I only take 1 teaspoon per day as per my weight recommendations on the label, which will last me for 6 months. Very good deal. Will definitely buy again.

    Interesting food

    Love the flavor is adds to my smoothies. Too early to tell about all the positive effects but undeniably feel more energy after my smoothies - not like caffeine - more like lots of motivation.

    Naturally powerful!

    IÕve purchased Maca Numerous times from the Maca Team, and I have to say I am very satisfied with the results I get. My only mistake is buying the 8oz in both Yellow Maca and Black Maca. I love the benefits I get from it. A+

    I will be putting another order very soon! Thank you!

    More energy!!

    I have a lot more energy and more balanced moods when I am taking my maca. I mix a table spoon of maca with a table spoon of bakers cocoa in about two cups of milk, shake it in my shaker...yummy!
    I had to go without for a couple months due to a mistake in my address change while moving and noticed how much better I make it through the day without getting sleepy in the afternoon after I started back on it.
    I have also noticed that I don't get as cranky with my kids and enjoy being qaround them more.

    Yellow maca

    I have to say that initially I bought the yellow maca for it's price (tight budget, I usually get the red one) but I got to tell you it's super good. I get tons of energy my hormone are still very stabilize. I only been having it for 2 weeks, so when I finish it I'll come back and give you my full observations.

    Not sure?

    I just happened to come across Maca and out of curiosity I got excited about what I read and ordered from this company. I really don't mind the taste and have stayed consistent in drinking mine with iced tea and just cold water and even juice. I guess my expecections where too high? I wanted to feel energised and to notice a difference in the way I normally feel!
    Like a tired fatiqued old old lady! I was so thrilled to read about the black Maca and for men's prostrate health I ordered that and the yellow for my father and had it shipped for his B-day gift. He said he has to wait before he can try it . I have half a bag more to enjoy. I am going to try the red next even though not sure about this yellow Maca.

    Love this Maca Powder...

    I was looking for a quality and trusted maker of Maca powder and came across an online user of maca powder and suggested The Maca Team. So without hesitation I ordered this powder and have not regretted my purchase. My order came about a week after ordering and was very impressed with the amount of time it took to be delivered. Energy level is great and will be a customer for a long time to come. It's great to have such a great team to work with should there be any concerns or questions I may have and that for me was the determining factor in becoming a customer. Thank you Maca Team I appreciate all you do to bring a quality Maca Powder to all of us customers much success to all of you.

    Absolutely Amazing!

    A few years ago when I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism I started my journey with maca. Maca's amazing ability to assist the thyroid (among other things) is the reason I chose it. I needed it to be the best Maca that I could find and The Maca Team has the best. The taste isn't overpowering and I can easily mix it in my smoothies. Also, I love that it ships fast and I don't have to wait! Love love love it!

  • Guillermo Rivera-Chavez

    Guillermo Rivera-Chavez 10th Jun 2017


    In truth, I am very delighted at how everything has turned out with all my orders, specially the last one a few days ago. My deepest appreciation is for Cyndi who with selflessness and exemplary efforts made my purchase a success. I recommend The Maca Team as being the very best to order organic Maca Root.

    From the beginning of my business relationship as a consumer with The Maca Team one year ago, I have admired their hard work and learned to trust them because their character represents a marvelous new breed of entrepreneurs and professionals who are not limited by the rather very difficult and risky working environment in Peru and the world to keep their commitment to advance sustainability and good causes of people and the planet.

    I pray de grace of God over their lives and their business.

    Below, I highlight a remarkable article by Seth Godin that mirrors the outstanding legacy The Maca Team is building to last for generations.

    Guillermo Rivera-Chavez
    San Antonio, Texas
    Off the hook with Milton Friedman

    Nearly fifty years ago, Milton Friedman published a polemic, an article that altered the way many people think about corporations and their role in society. Countless writers have explained why it's poorly reasoned, dangerous and wrong. (Including business school deans, Harvard Business Review and Fortune).

    The simple message of the simple article was: “there is one and only one social responsibility of business – to use its resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits..."

    Friedman does add a parenthetical, "so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition without deception or fraud,” but it's clear that his emphasis is on the first part.

    Businesses, he argues, should show no corporate responsibility, do nothing to further the goals of an ethical society, do nothing to improve the lives of customers, employees or bystanders—unless these actions coincidentally maximize profits.

    An interesting question that most people haven't focused on: why did this dangerous idea catch on and stick around so long?

    Here it is 2017, and the Chairman of one of the largest pharma companies in the country is gleefully telling patients and the FDA to live with the costs of his profit seeking, at the same time he pays his CEO more than $95 million a year. Because he can, and, like many who lucked into top jobs at big companies, because his excuse is simple: He's just doing his job.

    If the idea is so wrong, if it leads to an erosion of the social contract and the deaths of innocent kids, why are we still discussing it?

    Because it's simple, because it diminishes responsibility, and because it comes with prizes and warm chocolate cookies for those in charge.

    The simplicity of the argument matches up with its mendacity. There's no need to worry about nuance, no need to lose sleep over choices, no endless laundry list of social ills to worry about. Just make more profit.

    Do this, get that.

    A simple compass, a north star, a direction to go that absolves the employee/boss of responsibility for anything complicated or nuanced.

    People love mechanical simplicity, especially when it benefits them.

    The official rules of baseball are more than 250 pages long. Why? Because working the system, cutting corners and winning at all costs long ago replaced playing by the spirit of the game. Since the league can't count on people to act like people acting on behalf of the community, they have to create ever more rules to keep the system in check.

    The problem is far worse in a supposed free market. When humans stop acting like humans and instead indicate that they have no choice but to seek every short-term benefit and cut every possible corner, we can no longer trust each other to act responsibly.

    Off the hook feels like a simple way out. "I'm just doing my job, and not thinking hard about the side effects (or to be more accurate, the effects) of my actions. Not only that, but one of the things that's part of my job is lobbying to have fewer rules. Because working the refs is good business. And because everyone is doing it, I have no choice but to do it too."

    Of course, it's difficult for us to solely blame poor Milton. Lots of us have bad ideas, I've certainly had plenty. No, we need to blame ourselves for letting selfish corporate officers get away with this reasoning. When we go to work, or partner with, or buy stock in a company that signs up for Milton reasoning, we're rewarding people who have long ago stopped acting like people.

    Profits are fine, they enable the investment we need to produce value. But almost nothing benefits from being the only thing we seek, and the pursuit of profit at the expense of our humanity is too high a price to pay.

    Here's a different version: A business is a construct, an association of human beings combining capital and labor to make something. That business has precisely the same social responsibilities as the people that it consists of. The responsibility to play fairly, to see the long-term impacts of its actions and to create value for all those it engages with.

    It ruins my food which I hate dumping down the sink (waste of money on a small budget).
    And it leaves an after taste in my mouth despite brushing my teeth & tongue!

    Great product

    I found this wonderful product after my last child was born. My hormones were all over the place with night sweats, hot flashes and low libido. I had read about the effects of maca and the stabilizing affect it can have on hormones. This product, along with some dietary changes, has allowed me to reacha status closer to normalcy than I thought was possible.

    Probably the freshest maca available to the USA

    I really like this company, I can get pure black , yellow, and red maca. The quality is extremely fresh, and I really like the taste. I have bought maca from many companies over the past six years and I think the product from here is the best you can get. One recipe I plan on making soon is maca almond buttercups!

    Must Have

    We wouldn't be with out Maca as part of our daily diet. It goes in our fruit breakfast every morning and we also purchase Maca to go in our 'Lifeforce Tonics' we create for optimum health. Maca was a must have for our tonics, as part of the ingredient selection for feeding the body and our consumers.

    Thank you

    I like the gelatinized version better.

    I purchased this and didn't even think to make sure it was the gelatinized version, which I like better. Don't get me wrong, this isn't bad, it's just a bit stronger tasting than I was expecting. I will use it up and buy the gelantized version from now on.

    Quality - Results

    I've worked in the "health" food industry for a while and have been exposed to fads and miracles. I rate maca as a miracle.

    After having my last child in my late 30's I experienced a period of hormonal fluctuations and their side effects including, but not limited to, night sweats, restless nights and low libido. This product has provided me with a solution for these symptoms. I am so thankful that the MacaTeam provides such a high quality product so that I may find some normalcy to this wonderfully crazy life.

    Works for Hot Flashes

    I went thru menopause at 53. Now I am 68 and am having hot flashes like I never had before. I wake up drenched in the middle of the night. And usually have a couple lesser hot flashes in the early evening. I bought your Maca because it's from Peru, besides being organic, and it promised to even out hormones, which my doctor tried to do with birth control pills.
    I bought the yellow maca because it was most affordable for me. It WORKS! After about three days, the hot flashes were stopping. I still got the evening ones, but not the body drenching night ones. Right away I bought two more bags. This is wonderful stuff. Thank you for making such a fine product. Now the evening ones have practically stopped as well. They have become hardly noticeable. I put it in a smoothie with frozen organic fruit and a bit of Almond Milk, and ice. Tasty.

    Start off low dose with food

    I foolishly started with 2 tsp. on empty stomach. Terrible craps, diarrhea lasting 2 hours.
    After that foolish start, I dropped down to 1 tsp, with food. NO MORE PROBLEMS. So please start low. So far I haven't felt much of a difference but it has not been that long. A friend of mine swears by it. So in closing: Start low work up in dose. Eat first.
    As for shipping: WOW was super fast.

  • Unknown 26th Mar 2016

    Awesome product!

    I purchased the raw yellow maca powder several weeks ago. I've been taking it every day in my morning kefir and I can really tell a difference in my energy levels. I was having horrendous issues with brain fog and feeling like I needed 3 cups coffee every morning and afternoon. But ever since I exchanged the coffee for the kefir and macaroni, I've had tons more energy, without the crash. I'll definitely be a repeat customer! Thanks Maca Team!

    Very Potent/ Very cheap

    I am a yogi who finds yellow Maca provides amazing sustained energy, Endocrine adaptogenic qualities, decreased recovery time from physical exersion and a libido enhanser for certain.
    I ferment the powder in home brewed kombucha for 1 week before consuming to increase bioavailability, (& I like the flavor) also, I take Maca for 3-5 days consecuively then 2-3 days without maca to maximize its effectiveness.
    *Other competitor's Maca has exibited a fraction of the potency.
    *shipping has always been prompt with themacateam.
    Thank you.

    I am very perceptive of my bodie's response to things around me and specially those I consume. I have had maca before, and I was obviously happy with its effect in my body. But trying this brand on a recommendation was a great experience. The best way I can describe it, is my body sings when I take it.

    It's like every molecule just does a little happy dance. I do love the energy boost it imparts, but for me the most important effects is the adrenal support it provides.

    My hormonal balance is restoring and maca is an important ingredient of the protocol I'm using to rebalance my endocrine system. I highly recommend it

    I am a middle age perimenopausal woman. The Maca has made a new woman of me. Honestly I could do a commercial for Maca. Its sad Doctors are shoving hormones down woman’s face when Maca is such a safe and wonderful alternative. I even have my young 21 yr old daughter on it for PMS symptoms. Her personality changes are so pronounced I can tell when she skips a week without asking. I have taken supplements for years and the Maca has blown me away.

    Best Maca I Have Tried

    Ok I usually do not write testimonials but I just GOT TO this time. You can give my email address to anyone who contacts you to check if I am a real person who is writing this. Your MACA is THE BEST I have ever tried. Got more strength and stamina than ever. My body loves this stuff. I sold this to about 10 people and they all say the same. BEST EVER. And some of these people have been taking MACA since it came out there years ago.
