Gelatinized Red Maca powder is a favorite of our customers. It is made from 100% reddish colored Maca roots,traditionally grown and harvested on an organic farming co-op in a remote pristine part of the Peruvian Andes. Gelatinized Red Maca is pre-cooked to remove starch content and ease digestion. It takes about 4 kg of Raw Maca roots to produce 1 Kg of Gelatinized Maca powder. Recent scientific research has found Red Maca to have some important unique properties among all Maca colors. 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.
