Our black maca is sourced from the farms in Junin, Peru. This maca powder is not raw, rather it is pressure heated to help the body absorb the benefits more. The starches found in raw maca can be taxing on the liver and make it harder for the body to digest.
To activate the maca the maca is pressure heated. Maca is similar to a potato and should be heated to help remove the starch and bacteria before consuming. The heating and removal of starches also help the minerals become more bio-available.
