Maca is an adaptogen plant
An adaptogen plant is a substance (food or nutritive herb), which brings the body to a heightened state of resistance to disease through physiological and emotional health.
The word 'adaptogen' was first used by the Russian scientist Dr. Nickolai Lazarev in 1947. He reported on several indigenous plants that helped increase the body's natural resistance to environmental stresses and later adopted the term "adaptogens". Plants known as "adaptogen" are known to raise the non-specific resistance to disease, be capable of normalizing functions in the body, be non-toxic and harmless to any organ of the body, and be safe for ingestion for long periods as a nutritive for preventative purposes.
Maca is one of the most powerful adaptogen plants known fulfilling all the above criteria. Maca effect on the body is two-fold, nourishes the endocrine system and assists normalizing the nervous and hormonal systems in the body when they are adversely affected by stress and aging changes.
Red Maca has been found to have several differences to other colors of Maca:
Red Maca powder has been shown, under phytonutrient analysis, to be higher in certain compounds that support the body in antioxidant and antitumoral activity.
It has also been shown among all Macas to contain somewhat higher levels of other pythonutrients red-maca-powder-capsules.jpgincluding alkaloids, tannins, saponis and steroids.
Another significant difference of Red Maca and Cream and Black Macas is the taste. Most people find the taste to be sweeter, more gentle and more mild.
A study on Red Maca was published in the Journal Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology 2005; 3:5. In it 8 medical researchers report that over the course of 42 days: “Red Maca but neither Yellow/Cream nor Black Maca reduced significantly ventral prostate size in rats.“
In 2010 researchers from the Universidad Peruana, Lima published a study on the effects of Maca on bone structure in rats that had had their ovaries removed. The study concluded that both Red and Black Maca supported bone strength and density among the test subjects. Read more research on Red Maca here

For women's fertility and libido (men should try Black Maca
For bone density - most important for women and children
For everyone wanting to experience the highest antioxidant and nutrient levels of all Maca powders
