When selecting the perfect location for our macas, Incaliving considered the data and research as vital, especially when looking at how altitude may impact maca growth according to science (Meissner et al, 1). The red, yellow, and black maca colors combined to make Incaliving’s Triple Maca Powder are grown at 15,000 feet in the Andes Mountains of Peru, which is the ideal altitude for the best growth.
Additionally, the soil at these heights contain an abundance of rich nutrients, so Incaliving can offer some of the purest and finest maca in the world for our Triple Maca Powder or Triple Maca vegan vegetable capsules (available in either in 100 or 40 count).
Incaliving’s powder is a perfect balance between all three colors of maca root (60% red, 20% black, and 20% yellow root) in one convenient package. Maca color has been extensively researched and shown to have a multitude of potential health benefits attributed to each color (Clément et al, 2). As important as maca color and their genetic differences (Meissner et al, 3), the process of how it is cured also helps to distinguish our product from the competition. We only utilize the all-natural sun drying process developed by early Incas, which means about two months to dry the freshly cut roots (depending on the weather). This is a longer process than what the big companies would do; however, this natural drying process allows the root to be more flavorful and release more nutrients through the sun’s heat.
Next, because research shows how important production and extraction of maca are (Wang et al, 4), we gelatinize the dried root in the same ancient Inca method by lightly cooking the maca root through pressure, for roughly two seconds, to break down the different starches and rid the root of all unnecessary toxic enzymes. When maca is gelatinized, the body will quickly digest it while preserving many of its nutritional value. Unfortunately, despite the research (Zhang et al, 5), most companies only offer raw maca root since it is cheaper considering 4 pounds of raw maca is equivalent to 1 pound of the gelatinized maca Incaliving utilizes in our organic Triple Maca Powder or vegan Capsules.
Additionally, these same companies do not care about the potential health benefits that cooked maca possess over raw maca (M Canales et al, 6). Just another reason why all of our maca roots are 100% gelatinized: purity, taste, digestion and overall benefits for the body.
For best results, consuming between 3 to 5g of Incaliving’s Triple Maca Powder daily would mean being able to experience many to all the possible healthful benefits triple maca can provide; however, individual results will vary requiring adjustments based on personal needs. Incaliving’s Triple Maca Powder has a slight butterscotch flavor that allows it to easily be added to coffee, juices, shakes, smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal and many more to see our recipes please click here.
Amazing Potential Health Benefits
Although Patricia E. of South Florida is aware of the multitude of benefits associated with Incaliving’s triple maca powder, she said, “I love that it helps me lower my stress levels while regulating and balancing my hormones; after a stressful day, there are times when I can’t wait to take my triple maca.” Hormone regulation and balancing is just one of the more popular benefits of our triple maca powder; other red maca benefits include: suppressing hot flashes, bloating, mood swings during or before menopause, increased production of collagen, sexual function and desire, promoting hair and nail growth. The benefits aren’t just for women as men have noticed an increase in free testosterone, a decrease in an enlarged prostate or their stress levels.

Like the red maca root, the black maca has specific benefits when taken daily. The most important benefit is that it helps in oxygenating and detoxifying the body. First, oxygenating occurs in the body when the black maca, which contains the enzyme called Catalase, breaks down the body’s hydrogen peroxide molecules and converts them into oxygen and water; in fact, one single enzyme from our black maca can convert 40 million molecules of hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water in just one second.
Because of another important enzyme in the black maca root, Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD), the body’s primary antioxidants defense is boosted and assisted in reducing oxidative stress found in many life-threatening diseases. SOD also minimizes the amount of internal inflammation while simultaneously decreasing the pain associated with arthritis.
Another benefit, and the first steps in detoxifying the body from harmful substances is that our maca is an all-natural, plant-based product. This means the molecules derived from the black root can be delivered intact to the intestines and absorbed directly into the bloodstream, which is better and healthier than supplements alone.
Of all the benefits associated with our product, “It’s the mental clarity I’ve seen,” Tim P. of Wisconsin said when asked what he felt the most important benefit was. “I feel like I remember everything now,” he continued; “in fact, there is one thing I never forget now and that’s making sure I’ve taken my maca daily.” It’s not only improved cognitive function and memory but black maca is also known to help strengthen the body’s bones and the immune system.

Yellow maca, which is the most common and most abundant of the maca roots available, thus the reason it is usually the only maca root utilized by other companies, offers the user a variety of benefits. Yellow maca is known to help with maintaining energy levels, stamina, alertness in the morning, but research has also demonstrated that consistent usage increased the body’s natural ability to fight harmful UV rays.
