How are we different?

Our yellow maca is sourced exclusively from Junín, Peru, a traditional region for maca cultivation with the only natural distribution of maca in the world. There, the maca plant grows at an altitude of 4,050-4,200m on a small slope near the mountain town of San Pedro de Cajas (population 15,300) in the province of Tarma. This traditional growing region is only a few kilometres away from Junín National Reserve and the mountain lake Junín, the second largest lake in Peru. Lake Junín and the surrounding area has a particularly rainy microclimate and a soil composition that differs from the rest of the Junín region (among other particularities, it has a 10-fold higher magnesium content).

The maca roots are harvested exclusively by hand and sun dried when conditions allow. The tubers are then disinfected with ozonated water and ground into a powder to prepare the valuable compounds contained within for extraction, a process which is conducted entirely with water and food grade ethanol derived from sugar cane. In Peru, extracts are only made in a concentration of 10:1. Extracts with higher concentrations such as 20:1 are made in China (from maca roots of unknown origin), but the composition of a 10:1 extract is closer to that of the raw root and completely sufficient.

The maca plant (Lepidium meyenii) belongs to the cruciferous family and the cress genus (Lepidium). It is thus related to watercress, garden cress, rapeseed and mustard. Maca, also known as Peruvian ginseng, is native to the Peruvian Andes, where it has been cultivated at high altitudes for about 2,000 years. It is considered a complete food in the Andes and is used as a tonic for their armed forces. Mainly the tubers of the maca plant are used; they taste slightly sweet and can be boiled or slowly baked in the oven. The region's traditional dishes also include a sweet and very aromatic porridge made from maca, known as mazamorra.

Yellow Maca

Maca varieties, along with their differing colouration, have distinct characteristics due to the unique spectrum of ingredients they each contain. The main varieties of maca are yellow, black and red, but the roots are not easily distinguishable when ground into a powder. Only yellow maca is contained here.


Maca products are available in a variety of preparations and dosages. In an extraction, one or several constituents are separated from the raw plant material by solvents (in this case, water and food grade ethanol), resulting in a concentrate in which the valuable phytochemicals are present in a condensed form. This process also results in improved digestibility, as any starches that are difficult to digest are filtered out during the extraction process. The phytochemicals that remain are thus easier to absorb.

Cultivation & Processing


The maca plant, from which our yellow maca extract is made, grows in its traditional region of Junín, Peru at an altitude of 4,050-4,200m above sea level on a gentle slope near the mountain town of San Pedro de Cajas (population 15,300) in the province of Tarma. Due to the altitude, it is exposed to extreme climatic conditions: strong temperature fluctuations, strong winds and intense UV radiation. The growing region is only a few kilometres away from Junín National Reserve and Lake Junín, Peru's second largest lake. The area surrounding Lake Junín has a particularly rainy microclimate and a soil composition that differs from the rest of the Junín region in, among other traits, its 10-fold higher magnesium content. The Junín region harbours the world's only natural distribution of maca plants.

Harvested by Hand and Gently Processed

The maca plants are harvested by hand from the end of May through August and sun dried on large tarpaulins when conditions allow. The tuberous root is then disinfected with ozonated water, ground into a fine powder and the valuable ingredients extracted using water and food grade ethanol derived from sugar cane.
