Not the Same: Women’s Maca, Men’s Maca

You have probably heard of maca, but did you know that not all maca is the same?

13 Types of Maca – Get the Right Type for You

Grown high in the Andes in Peru, maca is an ancient solution with a safe history spanning over 2,000 years. Many women search out maca in hopes of supporting menopause symptoms, like hot flashes, dryness, low libido, brain fog, weight gain and night sweats. But there are many varieties of maca and you’ll be surprised to discover that most off-the-shelf, standard maca work best for men—not women. In fact, there are 13 different types of maca. Each has a different color, DNA, and active ingredient amounts. Most important, each type of maca does something different. For example, one type of maca affects fertility in men… but a different type affects fertility in women. One type affects prostate health and none of the others do. The truth is, the wrong type of maca can be harmful to your health. In fact, for certain conditions like hair loss, acne and hormone balance… standard maca powders can make it worse! Plus, some companies try to keep costs really low by adding fillers. Or get lower quality maca from another country because it’s cheaper.
