Raw Black Maca Overview

Raw Black Maca Further Info

raw black maca powder and capsulesOur raw black maca products are made from light to dark gray maca roots which are collectively called "black maca."  Historically, black maca was mixed with yellow and red colored maca roots for consumption. But once it was shown to have unique properties in the early 2000s, black maca began to be produced independently.   It is now our second most popular type of maca.

We typically recommend this product for most of our customers due to its taste and potency. However, for about 5% of people raw maca can cause temporary indigestion or gas. This is due to its starch content. If you have generally sensitive digestion or have trouble digesting other starches we recommend using gelatinized black maca products instead.

Several research studies have shown that Black Maca has unique properties:

  • A 2009 study in Peru found Black Maca to be the best for increasing sperm count and motility as well as for boosting male libido.
  • A study from 2013 reported that Black Maca has a positive effect on spermatogenesis (the formation of sperm cells)
  • A Swiss study from 2010 showed Black Maca to excel at protecting bone structure and preventing osteoporosis.
  • 2 studies in 2006 and 2011 found Black Maca to be superior for increasing memory, concentration and learning skills.
  • A UK study from 2011 found that Black Maca supported the most rapid muscle growth and endurance of all varieties of Maca.  Read more here
