What is Maca?Maca is an exceptionally hardy root plant native to the Andean mountain plateaus of Peru. A member of the brassica family, maca is grown at altitudes of 14,000 feet in an extreme climate of freezing cold, fierce winds and intense sunlight, where no other crops can survive. Herbalists believe that resilient plants are especially valuable; from an herbological perspective, maca’s resiliency knows no equal.
In spite of the poor volcanic soil and harsh environmental conditions in which it grows, maca is rich in amino acids, phytonutrients, and important vitamins and minerals.

A cruciferous vegetable, maca demonstrates antioxidant activity, containing phytochemicals, flavanols, glucosinates and isothiocyanates that have the ability to quench and scavenge various free radicals4. Unique, secondary metabolites macaene and macamides—identified exclusively in maca—may be responsible for some of the benefits described by native Peruvians.

I’ve used this brand of maca root for years and has served me well. After having a hysterectomy my estrogen levels started to drop and I began experiencing menopause symptoms and by the time I went back to my doctor and had my levels rechecked I was back to normal range. Great Product!

Vega is on sale often, which make it even better vale for your money! Healthy Planet has the best selection & usually the best prices!
This has gotten rid of vaginal atrophy for me. Better than using estrogen cream. I had breast cancer and will not ever take anything with hormones.
I started taking maca 2 times per day for one week and the hot flashes disappeared....love this maca root
Great product 5 star rating!
