Black Maca Powder
Our organic black maca root is harvested by hand and sun dried to produce nutrient-rich raw black maca powder.
The black maca root is the rarest colored maca and makes up about 15% of an entire harvest. Black maca’s color actually ranges from light gray to dark gray and is separated from the less rare red and standard yellow root due to its unique properties. Maca is sometimes called the Peruvian ginseng for its similar effect. Black maca is believed to be the best colored maca for boosting the male libido, but despite that reputation, black maca may be more universally beneficial than other colored maca in improving memory, concentration, learning skills, reducing stress, protecting bone structure(also the case with red maca), and may be moderately more effective with muscle building and improving endurance. The nutty butterscotch flavor of black maca makes it great for mixing into a variety of your favorite foods.
