Our Premium Gelatinized Red Maca Capsules contain 100% Red Maca root powder traditionally grown and harvested on an organic farming co-op in a remote pristine part of the Peruvian Andes. Gelatinized Red Maca has been pre-cooked to dissolve most starch content and ease digestion. It takes about 4 kg of Raw Maca roots to produce 1 Kg of Gelatinized Maca powder. Our premium maca powder is created using a unique process. Instead of being sun dried after harvest, the fresh roots are immediately cleaned in a citrus solution, ground into a pulp and low temperature dried to produce a powder which we then encapsulate in vegan capsules at our own facility. This careful and quick handling preserves more vital nutrients of the Maca roots and makes for a significantly more potent product.T Taking Maca in capsules offers 3 main advantages. First, it is easier to get an exact serving size. Second, capsules are convenient to take with you on the go. And third, taking Maca in capsules is the easiet way to avoid the taste of the powder. Recent scientific research has found Red Maca to have some important unique properties. A 2005 study found Red Maca to reduce the size of the prostate and reported it to have the “highest peak values” for 7 functional nutrients of all Maca colors. A study from Peru from 2010 found Red Maca to be the most protective of bone structure, density and strength. And another study in 2009 found that Red Maca had a “very favorable” impact on “energy, mood, sexual desire and hormone balance.” Red Maca is especially recommended for male prostate, female fertility, libido and hormone balance and for both men and women to naturally boost vitality.
