Paradise Peruvian Gold Certified Organic Maca Root Raw Powder comes from premium hand cultivated maca roots organically grown on high altitude plains in pristine areas of the Junin region in the central Andes mountains of Peru. Maca has one of the highest frost tolerances of any cultivated plant, allowing it to grow at altitudes of 13,000 feet to 15,800 above sea level. It is here that the Maca plant adapts to the harsh growing environment and absorbs key minerals from the Andes sedimentary soil.
Maca is a root vegetable from the mustard family that has been used as food and medicine for thousands of years in Peru. Maca's nutritional components include alkaloids, essential amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and trace minerals. It is said to promote endurance, energy, vitality and stamina and to improve sexual function and virility.

Paradise Herbs always use the best raw materials for their products,i compared this Maca with 2 other brands i purchased earlier from iHerb and paradise's Maca is much more edible in taste and more potent in its adaptogenic qualities.i find Maca easily digested when served hot so here's a great hot recipe for using this product : 1 to 2 tsp of Cacao,1 tsp of Maca,1 tbsp of grinded poppy seeds and 1 tbsp of sweet melaco/Molases,2 chocolate tablets and the smallest amount of salt,mix all together with a cup of hot water & add a handful of Goji berry / lycium berry above & wait for it to be cold enough to drink-thats it you're ready to go! ...you are welcome to rate & read my other reviews
I think this is GREAT! Great value! Organic. best maca on iherb other than healthforce nutritionals which is alot more expensive. You get a good lot 400g for only $13.68! Can't go wrong! I add it to my juices, teas or smoothies! Tastes nice too! Makes a nice macachino with my other herbs too ;) ! :D <3 Check check my other reviewwwwws! Enjoy your day! Savor LIFE! Be healthy and live in the appreciation station! :D hahaha...
toasted, not raw

The light brown color, texture, taste and smell indicate thus product,,sold by a large company selling many products,, mislabeled this product as raw when it is toasted,,,,I have used maca for 25 years,,and lived in Peru, where maca originates....this product is not raw,,it is toasted,, or as they saw in Peru " pretoastada"...beware of the misleading label...
Best maca ever

A must have product for an recreational athlete or just a guy who need to boost his energy every time he works out. Mixed excellent with my whey protein and taste nice. I ALSO PUT some cinnamon in the blender and do my pull ups, chin ups, push ups etc. WITH full of energy or take it half hour before my 10k.

Love this maca powder. Tastes great with anything, in my smoothies, raw puddings, anything at all. Will definitely purchase again. Just wonder why the nutritional info does not include calories per serving size...
