All Maca Root is not created equal. I have been getting a lot of questions about choosing the best maca root so this post covers the frequently asked questions. If you haven’t read about the benefits of maca root you can do so here. There are a few things you should be looking for when purchasing your maca root to make sure that you are getting the
biggest booty most for your money.
Should I use Maca Root Powder or Maca Root Capsules?
The debate rages on about which is better. I use maca capsules for the convenience and have seen great results with it. Many have used the powder and have reported great results as well. The difference between capsules and powder is minor for the healthy person and you should choose powder or capsules based on your lifestyle. If you make smoothies daily it is more convenient to use maca powder instead of remembering to take a pill 2-3x a day. If you travel a lot or don’t make smoothies everyday then the capsule is best. Another benefit to using capsules is that you can break open the capsule and add the powder to any liquid if you choose too. Just be sure to look for vegetarian capsules.
Where do I get Maca Root?
Most health food stores carry maca root including Whole Foods Market. You may also buy maca root online.
Reading the label
Check the amount per serving of your maca root. Note the recommended amount of maca per day. Choose a maca root capsule that’s more potent than the next. Some have 1000mg of maca root, others have 1500 mg of maca root per serving.
Check where your maca root is coming from
If the bottle cannot tell you where the maca root is sourced from do not buy it.
Do I have to use organic maca root?
Conventional maca may be sprayed with pesticides and other chemicals it is more beneficial to avoid these chemicals. Be sure to read the label to make sure your maca root is organic.
I have tried two brands of Maca Root. I have experienced better results with Gaia Life Maca Root Capsules which I purchased from Whole Foods Market while it was on sale.
