Unique Features

Red Maca refers to the colour of the root, variance in taste and antioxidants. Light pink and dark purple maca roots are a rare variety of maca.  They are used to make red maca powder, which some people think has the mildest and sweetest taste.  

Red maca powder is highly recommended for women, as it may assist with general well-being of the menstrual cycle and supporting healthy mood balance during menopause.
