DESCRIPTION

Black maca is the rarest variety of maca with black skin and a pale yellow centre. Known as Peruvian ginseng, black maca is traditionally taken for libido, stamina, muscle strength, bone density, mood, memory and focus and is also used to nourish and support male fertility and overall vitality.

We source our 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. Our organic black maca is hand harvested and sun dried at altitude to ensure potency and freshness are uncompromised. Gently heated in the traditional way (gelatinised) for easier digestion and better absorption, the maca roots are then ground into a fine powder. fine powder.

Good for you, good for the planet
Our pure black maca contains beneficial phytonutrients, amino acids and antioxidants and is a known adaptogen. Adaptogens work in synergy with the body by providing overall nutritional support to help you ‘adapt’ during times of stress and fatigue.

Creating economic opportunities in an otherwise unproductive land, our fairly traded organic maca provides positive outcomes for small-scale Peruvian farmers through economic and social empowerment.

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.
