CELEBRATE! Leading online scientific literature source confirms Lepidium Peruvianum as Real Maca.
Dr. Gloria Chacon has been the guiding light for Sol Raiz Organics' mission. Together, our purpose became clearer: Expand awareness about what constitutes Real Maca and the differentiation between Lepidium Peruvianum Chacon VS. Lepidium Meyenii Walpers.
Sol Raiz Organics earned the responsibility of sharing Dr. Chacon's life's work. When we came onto the Market in 2006, we knew the importance of heirloom seeds and the significance of the history behind this maca (Lepidium Peruvianum Chacon). It was Chacon who gave us an education on the science behind maca. Our efforts were quickly recognized by long time and experienced Buyers, at the time, at Whole Foods Markets and dozens of reputable organic retailers nation wide such as Jimbo's Naturally, Erewhon, Mother's Market and Kitchen, New Seasons and New Leaf and most recently, Mom's Organic Markets.
Every Buyer who has paid attention to the dedication and relevance of Dr. Gloria Chacon's work has had great success in helping their customers revers numerous ailments as well as becoming stewards of traditional agricultural practices of the Andes of Peru. As pillars of the communities they connect, we urge more Store Buyers in a position of influence to take action and support the last purveyors of heirloom maca.
