100% Pure Organic Maca Root Direct from the Source in Peru
Superfood of the Inca! ™
Grown at 14,000 feet above sea level in the mineral-rich highlands of Peru’s Altiplano, Maca Magic ® is a multi-spectrum blend of colored maca roots. This rare, bio-active food crop was developed and used by the Incas of Peru for over 3,000 years.
Non-GMO and free of herbicides and pesticides, Maca Magic ® is grown in fields that are naturally irrigated by glacial ice-melt and rainfall born in the thunderclouds of the Amazon basin. The result is 100% maca root that is incomparable in potency, freshness and flavor.
Certified organic by the USDA and Oregon Tilth, the roots are sun-dried upon harvest before being minimally processed into Maca Magic’s ® complete line of whole powders, capsules and tablets, extracts and smoothies.
Gluten-free and vegan-friendly, Maca Magic ® uses no fillers, additives, preservatives or artificial colors because we believe that it was pretty perfect coming out of the ground. Try it blended into a cold smoothie, mixed into a hot drink or baked into your favorite goodies.

What is Maca?
Lepidium meyenii is an herbaceous biennial plant from the same family that gives us broccoli, kale and the radish!
Maca is native to the highest parts of the Andes Mountains, at altitudes from 8,000 to almost 15,000 feet, an inhospitable region of intense sunlight, violent winds and below-freezing temperatures. Domesticated during the pre-Inca around 3800 B.C., primitive cultivars of maca have been found in archaeological sites dating back to 1600 B.C. It continued to be cultivated by the Incas centuries ago as a valuable nutritious dietary staple and botanical commodity.
For the Andean Indians today, maca continues to be a valuable commodity and staple of the indigenous peoples’ diet because it has one of the highest nutritional values of any food crop grown in the region. Containing almost 60 phyto-nutrients, the plant contains protein, fiber and calcium, as well as being a source of Vitamin C, iron and potassium. Today, Maca Magic ® is eaten daily by modern Peruvian people, from professional athletes to the elderly.
