Maca has long been touted for energy, stamina, improved mood, and sexual enhancement — and some of these effects have been demonstrated in preliminary clinical studies. But how do you choose the best maca supplement — one with real maca and minimal contamination? ConsumerLab.com purchased, tested and reviewed many popular brands of maca root powder (including gelatinized powders) to help you. We used DNA testing, microscopic evaluation, as well as our own taste tests. We found many products which contain real maca. However, one product contained an unacceptable amount of lead — a heavy metal. Another appeared to contain less maca than claimed and more filler.

To help you find the best price and value with maca supplements, ConsumerLab.com also compared the maca supplements on cost. We found that you can get a daily dose of quality maca for less than 20 cents.
