Choosing the Best Maca Root

Maca

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.

Maca root

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. Hope this blog answers all of the maca root question I have been getting! If you have any other questions hit up the comment box below.

    • Hi Jasmine! It took about 3 weeks. I workout about 3-5 times per week. I didn’t feel bloated but my libido increased. I have used Navitas and Gaia Life brands. I prefer Gaia Life.

  2. Hi Lexi, I am trying to put on a little bit of weight, does maca root increase your appetite by any chance? Do you think it will help to put on some weight?

  3. I’m trying to start a weight gain journey too. I’m severely anemic 😦 20, 5’4 and 99lbs. And unfortunately my doctor isn’t around at the moment. Point is, i’m not allowed to exercise due to my poor health. 😦 Do you think the pills will still be effective if i just go on a 4000 calorie liquid diet for about 2 months? (ofcourse i’ll eat a little) about twice a day. I can’t eat too much of solid food because i find it a bit too difficult and quite challenging. I heard maca root works best with exercise. That’s why i’m all confused now. Please help me 😦

  10. Hi Lexi,

    I just purchased the sprout farmer’s market maca root pills brand. It says it is organic, established in a GMP-Certified facility, 100% gluten free and 500mg 3 times per day. But does not specify where it comes from. Does this sound like a good brand?

  11. I am curious about the maca root powder compaired to the maca capsules as the capsules say it is maca root extract yet the powder does not. Which is better extract or plain powder? I am confused. Thanks Robyn

  12. Hi, thanks for the info about maca. I have 3 questions, plz:
    1. Will the results disappear after stop taking maca or will stay? (Specially the libido)
    2. I have already big butt and hips but with little big stomach and small breasts. I wish to enlarge my breasts only and flaten my stomach without increasing my butt and hips. Or it’s impossible with maca?
    3. I’m a female with zero sensation and zero libido since 7yrs after accutane treatment for acne 😦 Have heard from someone like my case that maca will help returning libido?
    Thx in advance

  15. Hi, I’ve been reading lately about how maca powder can help my buttocks become bigger. On the other hand there are lot’s of pills and creams that promise to provide the same effect. Do you know which of the above is more effective to make bigger butt?
