In 1994, we were fortunate to lead a botanical expedition through the Peruvian Andes to search for maca. It soon became apparent that maca was incredibly elusive and rare. It was estimated at the time, there was only enough maca in Peru to feed a few small villages.
To ancient Peruvians, maca root was a precious commodity. For almost two centuries it was commonly traded for gold and exported to feed the kings of Spain. In the late 20th century, maca slipped into obscurity and remained hidden away at 14,000 feet elevation, teetering on the brink of extinction.
With the help of the Peruvian government, we visited universities and seed germplasm collections throughout Peru. Using USDA permits, we were the first to export maca plants and seeds to botanical gardens, universities and researchers in North America and around the world.
Since then, researchers have proven what the Inca had been saying for centuries: maca works because it is loaded with natural precursors, amino acids, minerals and newly discovered Macamides and Macaenes, found in no other plant. Research data has finally shed light on the amazing properties of this once forgotten, remarkable crop.
Today our direct supply of maca products has the reputation as the freshest and purest root in the industry.
