Maca Power® powder is fresh milled to order then climate controlled shipped from Peru.

Note our 14.6% protein level -- we believe our premium strength Maca is the freshest, most supreme quality Maca in the world.

WHAT IS MACA?

Maca is a sexy heart shaped root vegetable of the Brassicaceae (cruciferous) family that looks like a radish but grows like a sweet potato -- the colour varies from creamy yellow or light pink to dark purple or black. Maca's botanical name is Lepidium meyenii, Walpers (after German botanist Gerhard Walpers) and is also known as Lepidium peruvianum,Chacon after Peruvian researcher Dr. Gloria Chacon.

WHERE IS MACA POWER GROWN?
Maca is the world's highest cultivated crop traditionally grown in the Junin Plateau of the volcanic mineralized Peruvian Andes Mountains at 4100 metres – that's over 14,000 feet above sea level! Maca Power® is grown here where our certified organic processing facility (exclusive, state-of-the-art, USDA approved) is also located. The climate at this altitude is harsh – extreme frost, intense solar radiation, gale force winds, and regular lightning strikes are the norm – and very little vegetation other than Maca, mosses, and cactus grow here. The Peruvians believe this combination of environmental factors are what give Maca it's unique properties, and science has borne this out in the study of medicinal herbs…..the more climate-specialized and the more duress a plant is under in the growth cycle, the more diverse and numerous its properties.
