In a nutshell, the answer is NO!
Maca is a whole food and as the world’s most powerful adaptogen with a true superfood profile, Maca is a superior daily maintenance product. Consider Sol Raiz Organics Maca as your most complete and nutritionally dense food source. The plant sterols and alkaloids make us more mentally alert. The protein (13%) is great for strength and endurance. The trace amounts of vitamins and minerals obviously enhance life forms and we feel fortunate to offer this unparalleled food for you.
The only negative to consuming Maca would be trying to save money by buying cheaper brands that are likely to offer the variety Lepidium Meyenii. Sol Raiz Organics Maca is the highest quality Maca available at a fair market price.
