In a previous newsletter, I mentioned that I was going to reveal some of the things going on in the Superfoods industry that I'm not too happy about...
In the video below I reveal some of these things and we show the processing of our Maca, from beginning to end. Angela and I also do a taste test between our wild Maca that is grown at 13,000 foot elevation in a National Reserve in Peru and is fed only by untouched spring water, and another well-known, reputable company's Maca that many people have probably bought before. The results were profound!
Check out this eye-opening video below:
Furthermore, our Maca is processed in pristine areas, as seen in this video. I've seen so many Superfood processing facilities that are located right in polluted cities where unclean water is used during the processing, such as for cleaning the Maca.
So why RED maca? Isn’t all maca the same?
Red maca has the same nutritional profile and all of the same beneficial properties as regular (white, yellow or black) maca, but it appears to possess additional properties of its own that may be more beneficial to men’s health.
As a result of recent scientific studies, red maca has been proposed to have important implications in the treatment of prostate diseases, including prostate cancer. Phytochemical analyses showed red maca to have greater amounts of the compounds responsible for antioxidant and antitumor activity than other types of maca.*

Ingredients: 100% Pure Organic Premium Peruvian Cream Maca
All of our maca products are grown organically on small family farms in pristine conditions at over 13,000 foot elevation, on the slopes of the Peruvian Andes.
Our maca fields are located in a untouched National Reserve and are only fed by fresh spring water. These are the fields in the picture to the right. All of those green patches on the ground are the wild green tops of the maca plants.
The picture below is a close up of the wildmaca from the picture above. If you look at the greens, you can see the vibrancy of them. They're completely wild. They just look like greens that grow in cold weather, which indeed was the case when we were standing there. Look at how small the maca is and you can imagine how nutrient dense it is.
I'm not going to get too deep into all this now, but in the future I'll be revealing things about many other sources of superfood products. We are always offered a lower rate on superfoods if we are willing to take a lower grade of product. We always choose the top AAA+ grade no matter what the cost is. We are a family-run business and we don't have partners or investors to appease financially. Therefore, we are able to pay more for superfoods and still be competitive with the pricing for the inferior products on the market. Going directly to Peru and developing relationships with all of the brokers, I witnessed exactly what other well-known companies are selecting for their superfood products. This drives me nuts and we'll probably be discussing this more in the future soon. I'm the kind of guy who always wants the best nutrition, foods and products that I can get my hands on and it drives me crazy that poor quality products are being passed off as 'excellent quality' in the name of profit margins. It is my mission in life to bring you thetop qualitysuperfoods on the planet at the best prices!

Maca is loaded with bioavailable minerals and plant sterols and is a powerful source of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iodine.
