Maca is internationally recognized as native Peruvian plant with cultural significance.
Sadly, “Chinese Maca” is unknowingly being sold and most likely, even promoted in your local health food store. More sadly, those promoting it may not know or have even considered such a thing as maca root is as Peruvian as apple pie is American. Additionally, besides blatant acts of bioterrorism, Chinese growers haven’t gone about their business in the most ethical ways.
Peruvian and consumer nightmares come true as "80% of Maca is now imported from China" shocking? We've been saying it along.
