Organic red maca powder (raw) is an adaptogenic root that may enhance your ability to deal with stress while boosting energy, endurance and performance. Red maca is packed with even more vitamins and nutrients than regular maca. In traditional Peruvian culture, maca is believed to be an aphrodisiac. Find out for yourself, and blend a spoonful of this sweet powder into your smoothies, or mix with our organic cacao powder for a delightfully energizing effect!

While this is organic red maca powder, please note that it is tan in color and not red. Our organic maca powder is never heated and is considered raw.

Health Benefits of Red Maca

Organic red maca powder balances the body to create sustainable, balanced energy, though it is not a stimulant. It boasts an impressive nutrient profile with 60 potent nutrients, including beta-sitosterol, glucosinolates, and fatty acids. As an excellent source of protein, red maca contains 18 amino acids, including 7 of the 9 essential amino acids. Since maca is an adaptogenic root, it supports the normal function of the endocrine system, which regulates the secretion of hormones into the bloodstream. Proper hormonal balance can reduce the severity of menopausal symptoms, enhance the body's ability to deal with stress, boost a weakened immune system, and ward off mild depression. As a natural source of energy, maca can support weight loss goals by increasing metabolism and helping the body burn more calories over time.

Why RED Maca?

Organic red maca powder contains the same nutrient levels as other maca varieties, and then some. Compared to other varieties, red maca powder contains higher levels of phytochemicals. Studies suggest red maca may promote good prostate health, combat osteoporosis, and support bone regeneration.

1) In a study published in the Journal Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology 2005; 3:5, researchers reported that red maca significantly reduced ventral prostate size in rats. This effect was exclusive to red maca, and was not the case for either the black or yellow varieties.

2) Another study published by researchers from the Universidad Peruana, Lima in 2010, found that red maca had protective effects on the bone structure in rats with osteoporosis. This research has positive implications for the effect of red maca on bone health.

Red Maca In Your Diet

Red Maca has a mellow, sun-dried butterscotch flavor. Its mild flavor works well in drinks and foods. For a natural source of energy in the mornings, try adding a few teaspoons of red maca to your breakfast oatmeal or other hot cereals. We love mixing red maca in smoothies, milkshakes, and even hot chocolate. Or try adding a scoop to foods like chia pudding for an additional boost of energy and nutrients.

“Ordered the red maca and was very satisfied with the next day delivery. Thanks for including a little something extra. Packaging was exceptionally delightful. Keep it going.”

“I know many of these reviews are based off of shipping (which my products arrived before scheduled) :) But I want to give a review on this product!

I began taking Maca Root mid November 2012. I suffer from PCOS and had read enough good about this product to get me to try it. I began taking another brand from a local health food store. One of my major symptoms of PCOS is not getting my cycles every month, sometimes being only once a year! From losing weight my cycles began to regulate around 37-40 day cycles. Once I began Maca Root my cycles reduced to 32 days on month one, 31 days on month two, then this month with this product from nuts.com my cycle is now 29!!! I have never in my life had a 29 day cycle unmedicated! I am a true believer that maca root works very well with PCOS. ”
