Why Choose Us?

Holding Fresh Maca RootsOverview

The Maca Team is a family run company of true maca specialists here to bring you the most maca has to offer. We are passionate about sharing high quality Peruvian grown Maca with the world and proud to offer the best selection of maca products anywhere.  Our products are always organically grown, fairly traded, non-gmo, gluten free, fresh and potent. 

Our single-minded focus on Peruvian maca allows us to do some important things differently

We source only the best organic maca.  It took us a long time to find and develop relationships with our farmers in Peru.   We were careful to choose a co-operative of farms that is focused 100% on organic and traditional agriculture.  They grow maca in the ancestral home of the root, Junin province.   And they honor traditional growing methods that calls for resting the land for 10 years between crops.   We are very happy to support this amazing work. 

We sell only the freshest maca products.   Maca is harvested one time per year - between June and August each year.  Because we order in small batches, our maca is continually made fresh and almost always from the current year’s harvest of maca roots. Most of the time our products are in our customer's hands within 3-4 months of being produced.   Mainstream maca sellers order in huge bulk shipments and products can often sit around for up to 2 years before going out to customers.

We take great care that our maca is packaged to preserve potency.   We use a foil lined double sealed totally opaque bag for our powders, safety sealed amber jars for our capsules and amber jars for our extracts.  This keeps light, humidity and oxygen away from the product and ensures maximum efficacy of our maca.   

We rigorously test all of our products.    Each of our products must pass a strict Certificate of Analysis (COA) before it reaches us.  We also do extra testing to make sure our products are free of pesticides and heavy metals.

The Maca Team Service and Shipping

We ensure fair prices for everyone.  We pay above market price to farmers for our products and work on smaller margins in order to give our customers fair prices.

We offer the most complete and transparent information on maca anywhere online.  We work hard to maintain an accurate and updated website and base our articles on scientific research whenever possible.

We highly value our customers.  We love and appreciate great customer service as much as you do.  This includes quick response times to questions, fast, accurate shipping and speedy resolution of problems.    Simply put, we aim to always treat everyone the same way we want to be treated. 

We innovate with maca.  We are always looking for unique ways to bring maca into the world. That can be through new product mixes (ie. The Morning Motivator), interesting recipes, sponsorships of athletes and more. We encourage you to let us know if you have any ideas of how we can better serve.

A few words from our customers:

"Hello! Your maca is truly the Don Perignon of macas I've experienced." – Mazy Lin

"Maca first came to us by our vitamin supplier. They ship a generic staple in its different forms. Their maca varieties are good, as is their customer service. Then we ordered from the Maca Team. Comparison? Think fire-fly, then think mid-day sun. At 76 and 73 years respectively, that is a big deal; and at comparable cost too. Here's what we told Cindi, MT's Customer Service lady: 'Never have we had such speedy delivery.' There's more. "MT's packaging is the strongest, most protective we've seen, ever, at all ... anywhere. Further, the Mrs. no longer takes hormone supplements." MT's sample pack is a good starter, but we're settling in on the kilo size. We have six meals a day. Maca almond milk smoothies, berry, chocolate or - always with one green apple, is the numero uno. A bike now sits by our back door, and we use it. We also use the new garage sale Stamina Stepper in the living room. And, for the first time in years the Mr. scans the morning want ads for steady P/T work (that is the only goal taking longer than it used to)" -- George and Sherri Wilmouth

"I have been using maca for many years. I used to get it from good my friends that live in Peru...or I bring it back personally when I travel there. I ordered this only because I have run out and cannot get any more for another 2 months. The quality and freshness of this Maca is OUTSTANDING!! Thank you for being an educated and conscientious importer and supplier of this sacred product." -- J.D.

"Loving the red maca from #themacateam. I can tell the difference from my usual store-bought brands. It really tastes so fresh and sweet compared to others. I really love this product. Thanks for sourcing it for us to enjoy" -- Michelle Gebbia
