There’s no way we would give you any old maca! Our family growers in Peru, whose ancestors were the first to master the art of cultivating maca at 14,000 feet above sea level many centuries ago, produce a truly unique crop. They work hard to nurture and harvest maca by hand and know the plants so well that they blend a special family-top-secret formula of 4 different maca varieties – white, red, black and purple maca at the correct levels to give the best taste, nutrient profile and of course effectiveness, which is exactly what goes into our pots!
What To Look For In A Good Maca Product
Here is a guide that helps you ensure your money is well spent on a quality maca product that not only gives you real, lasting benefits but also helps the people that grow it and the planet.
|Authentic - Grown in the Peruvian Andes
|Maca needs to be grown in its original habitat- in the harsh and unique terrain of the Peruvian Andes – to give it its strengthening benefits.
|Harmful chemicals, pesticides, processing aids are not coming anywhere near us thank you!
|Without using machinery, the crops are carefully handled.
|No heat treatment or processing
|Not heated above 55°C to keep all the amazing benefits. Our maca is not gelatinised.
|Powdered root formula
|The root (not the leaves) is the part of the maca plant where all the magic happens!
|Unique blend to get all maca benefits
|Maca plants come in different varieties, and we use a sophisticated (oh yeah!) blend combining white, red, black and purple that has been perfected over centuries. This is why the effects are so good and it doesn’t throw the body out of balance.
|Maca is much more than just nutrition facts, but for the record it delivers amino acids, iron, phosphorous, calcium, potassium, zinc and more!
|It’s got a malty, caramel flavour that makes it easy to mix with food and drinks. Try with porridge, yoghurt or warm milks!
|It’s got to make a real difference to you, otherwise what’s the point!? Read our reviews here.

Read some more reviews...
More and more people around the world are discovering maca and relying on its incredible benefits every day for their health and wellbeing. The wonderful highland people of Peru have therefore seen their maca trade grow and thrive recently due to this increased demand and, frankly, we’re thrilled for them! Their labour-intensive work is getting recognised and paying off, which means positive changes for local people.
This leads us to explain that the price of maca root in Peru is rapidly going up, but we know that wherever this leads, the Peruvian farmers will benefit from a fair price reflection of their amazing crop. Despite the maca cost increase, we refuse to compromise on quality and ethical trade – we only source (and will continue to source) our maca from our growers in Peru rather than elsewhere because it is the best in terms of quality, taste and effectiveness!
