Maca Powder Varieties
Indigo Herbs now stock 3 varieties of Maca Powder; Yellow Maca, Red Maca and Black Maca. Our high quality Organic Maca Powders share a virtually identical nutritional profile, however the varying colours come from the skins of each root where the phytonutrients contained in the skin create the pink/red to almost blue/black hues. If you cut a fresh maca root open you will see that all the different colours are the same on the inside.
This potent root has all the benefits of Yellow and Red Maca, however it is the anthocyanin content that is responsible for its deep blue/black colour. Anthocyanins are powerfully antioxidant compounds.
Under phytonutrient analysis, the Red Maca strain has been shown to contain higher levels of phytonutrients such as; alkaloids, tannins, saponins, steroids and cardiotonic glycosides. Red Maca contains the highest amount of amino acids. This is the mildest tasting variety of Maca and also the rarest.
Yellow Maca is the most common variety of this powerful Peruvian root. All types of Maca are known to be herbal adaptogens.
