Maca is a turnip like vegetable that grows at altitudes at and above 13,000 ft (3200 m) in the Andes. As the world’s highest growing crop, Maca is incredibly hardy, thriving in an inhospitable environment of rocky soil, extreme temperatures, high winds and intense sunlight. The plant produces a small root that has been treasured by natives of the high Andes for 1000s of years. Traditionally, Maca root is ground into a powder and eaten as a staple food to help improve fertility, to boost stamina and to provide a nutritional boost.

The Maca Team is a small family company that provides only the highest quality Peruvian Maca products.

  2. Because it mimics estrogen, those with a history of breast, uterine or ovarian cancers should use maca sparingly though
