Commonly known as “The Peruvian Ginseng,” Maca is a root indigenous to the Andes of Peru. Maca was domesticated by the Incas and has since been used by indigenous people as part of a daily diet to promote optimal well being. Maca contains Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Iron, other essential vitamins and minerals as well as a host of antioxidants. There are three varieties of Maca: Yellow, Black and Red-Purple Roots. Unlike Yellow Maca, Black & Red-Purple Maca Roots are the most elite of the varieties in that potent phytochemicals are found in the black and red-purple antioxidant rich pigments. Maca is considered to be one of the Amazon’s most important adaptogenic superfoods due to its extraordinary nutritional profile and unique array of phytochemicals.
Proprietary Cold Gelatinization Process
Not all Maca powders are the same. Many Maca powders are simply ground up yellow Maca. What makes Organic Traditions Maca X-6 Powder so different is that it is a 6:1 concentration of the most elite varieties of Maca available. Using a proprietary cold gelatinization process, six pounds of 80% Black Maca Roots, 15% Red-Purple Maca Roots and 5% Yellow Maca Roots are condensed into one pound of powder. Since Maca is a tuber it contains considerable amounts of starch. Organic Traditions Maca X-6 utilizes a proprietary cold gelatinization process in order to remove the starch from the tuber without the use of high heat, ensuring that the delicate compounds are not degraded. Through this process a greater concentration of powerful phytonutrients is obtained. If you are already a Maca lover, you will feel the incredible difference of Organic Traditions Maca X-6 and experience the potency of concentrated Black and Red-Purple Roots.
