Our Raw Yellow Maca capsules contain 100% Yellow Maca powder made from Yellow Maca roots grown traditionally on a farming co-operative high in the Peruvian Andes. These roots, about the size of a radish, make up about 60% off the annual Maca harvest in Peru and are nutrient rich. Maca boasts nearly all essential amino acids and free fatty acids, significant levels of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and C, minerals iron, magnesium, zinc and calcium, a high concentration of bio-available protein and nutrients unique to Maca called macaenes and macamides. Both medical studies and anecdotal evidence have studied Yellow Maca in depth. To date over 400 studies on Maca appear on the Pubmed medical database. Yellow Maca has been associated with a number of benefits including overall hormone balance, energy boosting, memory and more. We recommend raw Yellow Maca capsules for anyone wishing to receive Maca root's benefits at a lower cost. Because it is more abundant, it is less expensive than Red, Black and Premium Maca powders. Yellow Maca is suitable for both men and women. That's because it contains no hormones - it only stimulates an individual's body to produce more or less of a given hormone. We also sell Gelatinized (pre-cooked) Yellow Maca. While pre-cooking does alter some of Maca's nutrients, it also helps remove some starch content thereby making the powder very easy to digest. If you have sensitive digestion we suggest you try Gelatinized over Raw Yellow Maca. We sell all of our products in powders, capsules and extracts.
