An energising and revitalising superfood of the Incas. Jam packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and all the essential amino acids. Grown at 4,000m above sea level in the Andean district of Junin by the Pumpush people who have been cultivating and consuming maca as a staple food for thousands of years. Contains unique alkaloids, which help stimulate the master glands that in turn may help optimise and balance the entire endocrine system.
We are often asked why maca costs so much less than other brands. It is because this maca is 100% certified organic and directly from a grower association in Junin, Peru. We pay them a premium price for it and then we put the same markup on the maca as all of the other products we sell and that is how we arrive at the price.
If you are receiving treatment for any hormonal issues or you are pregnant or breastfeeding, there are certain contraindications for maca. Maca affects the hormonal system so we recommend you consult your naturopath or medical practitioner before taking.
About Loving Earth
Loving Earth is based on the philosophy that the earth is a living organism, popularised by James Lovelock’s Gaia theory.
The very same idea is at the heart of many indigenous cultures around the world. This philosophy consists of an immense respect for our environment, recognising our own physical bodies as being an indispensable part of that environment. Accordingly, the three central principles of Loving Earth are healthy, sustainable and fair. These ideals have been extremely important to us since the beginning and are the foundation of everything that we do.
