Raw Tri-Color Maca
Raw Tri-Color Maca Additional Information
Our raw tri-color maca products are made from a mix of all 3 colors of maca roots: black, red, and yellow. Combining about 40% yellow, 30% red, and 30% black maca roots, raw tri-color maca products are a great way to get the health benefits of all 3 colors.
Tri-Color Maca Is “Heritage Harvest”
Maca root is native to Peru and is in fact protected as a culturally significant heritage product of the high Andes mountains of Peru and Bolivia. It is in fact unlawful to export maca seeds from the region and try to grow them elsewhere.
We call our tri-color maca products “heritage harvest” maca because it corresponds to how people in the region have eaten maca for generations. Maca roots were only separated by color starting in the 1990s. Until that time the roots from a given harvest were typically lumped together for consumption.
Why Tri-Color Raw Maca Is A Great Choice
Tri-color raw maca products are a great choice for a couple of significant reasons. First and foremost, they combine the benefits of all 3 colors of maca root. Although red, yellow and black maca roots are the same species they do have slightly different nutritional profiles and offer somewhat unique benefits between them. When you take a tri-color product you get a broader range of nutrients and benefits. Second, because it requires less work to separate the roots by color, tri-color maca products are less expensive than black, red or yellow products. This makes them an excellent choice for anyone just starting with maca.

Powders are the least expensive and most versatile way to add maca to your diet. Our maca powders are ground extremely fine and quickly dissolve in liquid when using a blender or a shaker jar. Raw Tri-color maca root powder may also be used in recipes and smoothies.
We’re proud to control the production of our all of our maca capsules. We do that so we can be sure that our capsules contain only 100% pure maca powder and nothing else. Our capsules are vegan and a great choice for convenience.
Tri-color maca extract contains the major nutrients of all maca colors in a liquid vegetable glycerin base. To get the best out of using our extracts, simply hold a couple of droppers full under your tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing. This transports maca’s nutrients into your blood stream very quickly. The extract bottle is small and easy to take with you on the go. You may enjoy our extracts alone, or take them alongside capsules or powders.
