    • More Info

      An energising and revitalising superfood of the Incas. Jam packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and all the essential amino acids. Grown at 4,000m above sea level in the Andean district of Junin by the Pumpush people who have been cultivating and consuming Maca as a staple food for thousands of years. Contains unique alkaloids, which help stimulate the master glands that in turn may help optimise and balance the entire endocrine system.

      We are often asked why our Maca costs so much less than other brands. We buy our 100% certified organic Maca powder directly from a grower association in Junin, Peru. We pay them a premium price for it and then we put the same markup on the maca as all of the other products we sell and that is how we arrive at the price.

      As you can see Australian certified organic have audited the whole production and packaging process assuring you the consumer that our Maca is 100% pure, organic and of the highest quality.

      If you are receiving treatment for any hormonal issues or you are pregnant or breastfeeding, there are certain contraindications for Maca. Maca affects the hormonal system so we recommend you consult your naturopath or medical practitioner before taking.

    • How to use

      Add 1 to 5 heaped teaspoons of maca to your favourite juice, smoothie or cereal 1 or 2 times a day.

      For the ancient Incans and modern day Peruvians, especially in the Junin district of the Andes, Maca is a staple food. The locals believe that the more you eat, the more energy and overall vigour you will experience. Maca is non-toxic, has no dangerous side affects and no withdrawal symptoms. So the quantity you can take really depends on what you want to achieve. This is why we make it available at an affordable price so that people can consume it in appropriate quantities and experience the full benefit.

      Since Maca is a very potent and nutrient dense food, it is best to build up a dosage slowly to ensure your body can adjust to it. Some people find that Raw Maca Powder can be difficult to digest initially. Start with half a teaspoon and build up to one teaspoon over the first week or so. Once your body has adjusted, you can increase your portions according to your needs.

      If you find that Raw Maca powder is not comfortable for your stomach even after a few weeks, you may want to try Gelatinised Maca (not raw), which may be easier for your body to absorb.

    • Growing and Processing

      The Association of ecological maca growers of Junin consists of approximately 84 families and provides employment for in excess of 150 people during the annual sowing and harvesting of the Maca.
