Maca roots come in a variety of colors but the most prominent varieties are yellow, red, and black. Maca is grown at elevations of 3,800 to 4,800 meters above sea level in theAndes Mountains, of Peru. Each one has its own unique health properties. Maca is considered a “Superfood” because of all its health oriented properties.
During the growing process the Maca plant uniquely absorbs the rich nutrients in the soil to provide a “Superfood” that gives great balance to the body. For this reason the fields where Maca is grown for two years must also lay for four years to replenish the nutrient content of the soil.
