Maca flour (powder) – normal powder
Maca Premium – most plants are sorted by size

HANDO® only uses Maca gelatinizada.”

WHERE DOES HANDO® MACA COME FROM?2018-08-01T16:27:28+02:00

“From the controlled growing areas of the highlands of Peru (Junín).
HANDO® attaches great importance to checking the production conditions on site (no pesticides, no pollutants, extreme hygiene), which is why HANDO® gets-to-know its suppliers personally and visits them regularly”.

WHO SHOULD/CAN TAKE MACA?2018-08-01T16:27:37+02:00

“Athletes, women and men who want to support their hormonal balance, people who are energy- and powerless or suffer from stress or depression and their immune system is weakened as a result, additionally children/adults with concentration disorders”.

WHICH ACTIVE INGREDIENTS MAKE MACA SO EFFECTIVE?2018-08-01T16:27:50+02:00

“In addition to proteins, carbohydrates and vegetable fats, which play an important role in the body’s energy production, Maca also contains many vital minerals, trace elements and amino acids in high concentrations. These vegetable active ingredients are much better absorbed and processed by our body than synthetically produced active ingredients. Therefore the effect is stronger and better.“

WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT COLOURS? IS IT TRUE THAT YOU SHOULD ONLY USE YELLOW MACA?2018-08-01T16:28:06+02:00

“The different colours of Maca have different concentrations of active ingredients. The yellow tubers have a higher concentration of Vitamin A, the red ones are more anti-oxidant, the black ones have a higher content of potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorous. It’s a combination of them all that makes the difference.”
