It is said that when Spanish conquistadors landed in the Inca empire, few animals resisted the expedition and they couldn't breed with normality. They were victims of the high temperatures of the Highlands, so they were dying one by one without giving legacy. The Indigenous of the zone recognized Maca as a great aphrodisiac, so they told the conquerors to feed their animals with it. The results were amazing since the animals could breed again. From that time to the present, Maca is known to be a millenary superfood from the Peruvian Highlands. Since 1997 Naturandes reconnects the contemporary world with the ancient wisdom of the Andean cultures: 5,000 years of nutrition, intelligence, and agriculture in your hands. Flora Huaman is the producer of chia seed, a Peruvian woman who works together with Naturandes. Maca root grows in the heights of Junin and Huancavelica regions over 4500 masl. Maca is high in amino acids, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and fibers.
