Maca root has been used for thousand of years by the native indians of Peru as an indispensable ingredient to health. Sometimes going by more exotic sounding aliases such Maca-Maca, Maino Ayak, Chichira, and Ayak Willku, Maca root is sure to evoke the feelings of vitality and vibrancy. Did you know that Maca root grows in the mountains of Peru and high altitudes of 7,000 to 11,000 feet? This makes it the highest growing plant in the world…but that didn’t stop us from bringing it to you. Enjoy!
