Buying Maca in Singapore

By January 14, 2014 August 20th, 2019 Maca

Maca is one of the most popular health supplements to increase stamina, energy, and sexual function. The demand for maca has increased exponentially in the last years and so has increased the number of options available. However, if you want to buy the best maca in the market be sure to follow the following rules:

Rule #1: Get Maca Capsules

You may be tempted to get sachets of maca powder because they tend to be cheaper. But maca is one of these products that although it comes nutritionally packed it has a less than desirable flavour. Maca has a strong bitter and earthy taste that impregnates anything you mix it with. The first maca product I bought was in powder form and I was trying to make smoothie with it every morning. No matter what recipe I tried to use, the result was always unpalatable.

If you plan to take maca in the long run, it is really worthy to pay a few extra cents to get the capsules, it will save you sweat.

Rule #2: Buy Only Organic Maca

It is commonly known that organically grown vegetables contain as much as twice the amount of nutrition as compared to those grown in commercial farms. In addition, to ensure the highest quality you would want to avoid the chemical fertilizers and insecticides commonly used in such farms. Therefore, make sure the Maca product you are burying is certified organic.

Rule #3: Get Gelatinized Maca

Maca can be found in two main states: raw or gelatinized. Raw is just the grinded version of the maca root, while gelatinized is the concentrated version of the product. Gelatinization is a newer form of maca that involves cooking the root at high temperature and pressure to remove the starch that it contains. The resulting product is more concentrated in the active components and easier to digest by the body.

Rule #4: Use Concentrated Maca

If you want more bang for your buck go for a concentrated version of maca. Gelatinized maca is more concentrated than raw maca but the degree of concentration varies among products as well. There are a few reputable companies that produce maca concentrated 5 times (1:5). I have also seen maca concentrated 1:20, but these tend to be low quality farm maca from China and I strongly advise against it unless you really know what you are buying.
