Certified Organic Maca Extreme® Maca is a root vegetable grown in the Peruvian Andes. It was sacred to the Incas and has been used as a food and medicine in South America for centuries. It is well known for its ability to help enhance strength and endurance. In fact, Incan warriors would often consume maca before long journeys and battles. Maca Extreme® is a micro-pulverized, highly absorbable, 4:1 concentration of the most important elements in maca—a little goes a long way! Maca Extreme® contains less starch than standard maca, making it ideal for those with difficulty digesting cruciferous vegetables.
The Sunfood Difference™ Traditionally, maca powder is made by grinding up sun-dried maca roots of various colors. Our raw, organic, non-GMO Maca Extreme® is created using a cold-drying process with fresh maca roots, generating a uniquely powerful concentration not found anywhere else.
