ADDITIONAL INFO

  • Raw maca accumulates mould that produces toxic aflatoxins. Aflatoxins are cancer causing molecules that attack our gut biome and can remain in the raw powder of maca unless it is cooked. Eating raw maca can cause serious harm to your health and upset your gut biome.

  • Gelatinized maca is often confused with gelatin due to the similar spellings of the words. Gelatinized maca has nothing to do with gelatin, gelatinizing is actually just a name for the process of heating a starchy product to reduce starch content, making it more viscous.

  • Raw maca contains high levels of starch. This can be hard to digest if eaten raw and may give some people symptoms such as bloating, gas, distention and abdominal discomfort.

  • Maca has always been traditionally (for 2000 years) cooked or heated and the health benefits are not diminished by these processes, if anything they are enhanced.

  • Red maca and black maca are used both daily in low-doses or acutely in high-doses vs yellow maca, used more only as a daily food source.



Yellow Maca is the most abundant of the 3 colours (60-70%)

Used for long-term balance and resilience to stress. Yellow maca is more mild than the other colours and is a great general health tonic for men and women of all ages including children.

Yellow maca powder benefits those with hormonal imbalances (including PMS and menopause), thyroid dysfunction, adrenal fatigue, autoimmunity, inflammation, mental health and also for improving energy and fertility.


Red Maca is more rare (20-25%)

Sacred and saved for acute treatment of constitutional imbalances or alleviating more chronic conditions. Red Maca root represents the internal energy of our body, the energy that nourishes, stabilises and calms (the feminine side of maca).

Red maca benefits conditions such as anxiety, adrenal fatigue, osteoporosis (bone density), blood flow, oxygen in the blood, inflammation and autoimmunity, prostate function in men, hormonal balance and female fertility.

Red maca heals our entire inner being and our feminine energy. It is ideal for use by men and women for more chronic or acute conditions and imbalances.


Black Maca is the rarest form of maca (10-15%)

The most sacred and saved for acute treatment of constitutional insufficiencies or chronic health conditions. Black Maca represents the external energy of our body (the male side of maca), that which strengthens, gives vitality and gives direction to our organism.

Black maca benefits our cognitive capacity (brain fog), brain function, energy, mental focus, mental health (antidepressant), physical performance, male fertility, sexual function and libido.

Black maca heals our entire external being and our masculine energy, it is like an uplifting and encouraging boost. It is ideal for use by men and women for more chronic or acute conditions, imbalances and athletic and cognitive enhancement.



Everyone is made up of both feminine and masculine energy, and throughout the day we are using both energies depending on what we are doing. Balancing these energies is essential for health and wellbeing.
