Find out for yourself, and blend a spoonful of this sweet powder into your smoothies, or mix with our Organic Raw Cacao Powder for a delightfully energizing effect!

Red maca balances the body to create sustainable, balanced energy (not a stimulant). It has a milder taste then regular maca. This whole raw organic red maca powder contains all of the plant spirit, minerals and fiber produced from red/purple maca bulbs.

Phytochemical screening showed that extract of Red Maca has alkaloids, steroids, tannins, saponins, and cardiotonic glycosides. Examination of three ecotypes of Maca showed the highest peak values were observed for Red Maca, intermediate values for Yellow Maca and low values for Black Maca.

Epidemiological studies have found that consumption of cruciferous vegetables is associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Cruciferous (Brassica) vegetables are broccoli, cabbage, mustard and collard greens, bok choy, and members of the genus Lepidium, including Maca. In the many hundreds of cruciferous species investigated, all are able to synthesize glucosinolates. The absolute content of glucosinolates in fresh Maca is relatively higher than reported in other cruciferous crops. The most abundant glucosinolates detected in Maca were the aromatic glucosinolates. It is possible that Lepidium meyenii (Red Maca) may have important effects on prostate.

Red Maca contains 60 potent nutrients, including beta-sitosterol, glucosinolates, fatty acids, 18 amino acids, including 7 of the 9 essential amino acids, and numerous vitamins and minerals.

Red Maca has mellow sun-dried butterscotch flavor. While this is Organic Red Maca, please note that it is tan in color and not red.
