Who we are
Sol Raiz Organics is the pioneer of Single Estate, source verified Chacon Maca.
Sol Raiz is the only U.S company to have achieved an exclusive endorsement from the President of the Association of producers for ecological maca for the country of Peru. We work directly with our growing partners to stimulate full time work for 30 families and our efforts are personally endorsed by Dr. Gloria Chacon.
Today, Sol Raiz Organics Chacon Maca is widely available in natural food stores, grocers, and juice bars throughout the United States.
Since 2005, we have worked independently with Peruvian farmers from the Junin Plateau (High Andes of Peru) to offer the heirloom variety of maca with un paralleled medicinal and therapeutic properties:
100% Lepidium Peruvianum Chacon.
We found out that true quality maca (Lepidium Peruvianum Chacon) was not making it to the U.S. market place. Instead low grade Lepidium Meyenii Walpers makes up the vast majority of product put out by other brands. These roots are actually considered "weeds" yet U.S. companies about the bottom line have been getting away with passing them off as the Incan superfood maca.
When we emerged onto the market in Southern California's Co-Ops, we made it a point to share the work of colleague Dr. Gloria Chacon. The variety or specific genus of product we get was named after Chacon for its naturally occuring superior nutritional content and medicinal benefits.
With the gift of knowledge presented to us by Dr. Chacon, we took on the responsibility of educating newly acquired accounts. Soon everybody seemed to want to hear our story and learn more about our products.

What we offer
Sol Raiz Organics offers a maca experience like nothing else you’ll find outside of the Peruvian Andes. Our Single Estate Sourced - Traditionally Gelatinized - Chacon Maca, thrives today in the exact location of the heirloom variety that provided the Incan Empire with their most prized food source.
At 14,500 ft. our maca is regarded as the only true quality assured maca to reach the U.S. market place. This crop is regarded so special and unique that the purveyors of the root stand watch as protectors of the crop to honor the ancestors that regarded this root as the Incan Empires’ most prized food source.
Chacon Maca’s unique properties are so powerful they’ve been called “unusual.” What other vegetable do we know of that provides unparalleled nutrition, natural energy, endurance, and is touted the greatest libido-enhancing herb for sex drive and reproduction?
Scientific studies on maca conducted exclusively from the Sol Raiz Estate show our roots to increase fertility, balance hormones diminishing hot flashes and night sweats and has been the hands down, number one product prescribed for women seeking alternative and natural ways to achieve homeostasis rather than synthetic HRT.
With the quality assurance surpassing industry standards, Sol Raiz Organics Chacon Maca is completely safe and regarded as important for all ages.
Our mission is to uphold the integrity of heirloom maca and Dr. Gloria Chacon life's time work by educating communities in the USA about the difference in the varieties of "maca" and the quality standards that make this ancient root medicinal.
