We recommend both Maca powder/pills as well as gelatinized Maca powder pill. Whichever one you choose is up to you – the main difference is that gelatinized Maca is much more potent. See, gelatinized Maca is raw Maca with some of the starches removed to concentrate the power of the Maca. It’s like an extract of an already powerful product.
So be careful when you first start taking the Maca – gelatinized Maca is powerful. Start small, don’t exceed the recommended dosage and move up from there. Seriously, don’t get too greedy to grow a huge butt – ’cause it’ll come and when it comes too suddenly, it’ll bring stretch marks along with it.
Here are our favorite Maca products. They’re all by the same company – Navitas.
We really like Navitas because the company is reputable and trust-worthy. When dealing with many of the “superfood” companies, it’s hard to tell which ones are really providing the most potent, authentic products – so we tend to look at the company as much as the product.
We like Navitas because they do third party testing for all their products. Their facilities are also organic and kosher certified. They’re cheaper on Amazon.

Navitas Naturals Organic Maca Powder is cultivated in its indigenous region of the Junin Plateau amongst the Peruvian Andes. After harvest, the maca roots are gelatinized and milled: a process that concentrates the active ingredients through a heated extrusion to remove the starch.
