Human and Animal Studies

Unspecified Colors

Despite the compelling evidence that the colors of maca vary in their composition and impact on various health conditions, much of the published literature does not disclose the color(s) studied, creating a challenge in understanding the potential health benefits and highlighting the need for color-specific studies to be completed. A 2022 systematic review and meta-analysis revealed that 50% of the articles published did not state the color(s) used.


The research suggests that maca, without specifying the color(s), support:

  • Mood regulation (anxiety and depression)

  • Sexual health (libido, erectile dysfunction

  • Reproductive health (sperm health

  • Cardiometabolic health (blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose)

  • Lowering inflammation

  • Energy

  • Menopausal symptoms (hot flashes, insomnia)
