Red maca is one of the rarer varieties with a reddish skin and a pale yellow centre. Known as Peruvian ginseng, red maca is traditionally used to nourish and support female hormone balance and male prostate health and is also taken for stamina, mood, libido, menopause, bone density, circulation, skin health and overall vitality.

We source our organic maca from the Junin region in the Central Andes of Peru where it only grows at soaring altitudes of up to 4,500 metres. Frost and disease resistant, maca is a tuber that thrives in harsh environmental conditions where little else grows. Hand harvested and sun dried at altitude to ensure potency and freshness are uncompromised, our red maca is gently heated in the traditional way (gelatinised) for easier digestion and better absorption. The maca roots are then ground into a fine powder.

INGREDIENTS

Certified Organic fair trade maca powder (Lepidium Meyenii)

QUALITY

Maca is a heart shaped root vegetable from the brassicaceae family (also includes broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage) that looks like a turnip but grows like a sweet potato. Our maca is authentic Peruvian maca - the birthplace of maca and still where the finest quality maca grows. The best maca grows at high altitude in the central Andes where it survives unforgiving conditions such as rocky soils, icy temperatures, strong winds and extreme sunlight. This harsh habitat is what makes maca thrive and produces the most potent maca with the most nutritional benefits. Maca roots are hand harvested and sundried then gently ground into a fine powder. Our Maca supplier is Fair Trade certified ensuring that our farmer partners and their families are supported.
