Peruvian maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a root native to the Andean region, a biennial herbaceous plant of the family Brassicaceae, cultivated for at least 2000 years. The principal and the edible part of the plant is a radish-like tuber that constitutes the hypocotyl and the root of the plant. This hypocotyl-root axis is 10–14 cm long and 3–5 cm wide and constitutes the storage organ storing a high content of water.

Maca is rich in fibre, many essential amino acids, fatty acids, and other nutrients, including vitamin C, copper, iron, and calcium. The dried hypocotyls of maca are approximately 13–16% protein and are rich in essential amino acids. Fresh hypocotyls contain 80% water and have high amounts of iron and calcium. Besides these essential nutrients, this root contains bioactive compounds responsible for benefits to the human body, which has caused a considerable increase in its consumption in the last 20 years worldwide.

Maca contains several secondary metabolites. The secondary metabolites macaridine, macaene, macamides, and maca alkaloids are only found in this plant. Macaenes are unsaturated fatty acids. Other compounds include sterols as beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol. We at Nature’s Laboratory supply organic maca root powder and maca roots as whole herb.

Using our powdering machine we can choose the size of the ground herb particle. This means we can produce everything from a course powder, which might be used in a herbal tea or infusion, to a very fine powder.

Organic Herbs

We’re all aware of the importance of choosing organic where possible. Agriculture and farming without the use of chemicals is better for both the environment as well as for our bodies! This is certainly the case when it comes to herbal medicine.

Our Lepidium meyenii / Maca Root Powder Organic is a great choice - with many additional benefits over the standard product.

We are a certified organic producer. We undergo regular inspections. These ensure that our systems and processes meet the requirements of certified producers. Our customers can be confident that our organic products meet all the statutory requirements. At Herbal Apothecary we manufacture a very wide range of herbal tinctures and fluid extracts. We also supply whole, cut and powdered herbs.

Organic farming respects nature and improve the health of soils, water and air. It’s about growing food in a way which is sustainable and protects ecosystems. Pesticides are a key contributor to the decline of pollinator populations. They are responsible for driving down the numbers of pollinating insects. There are also strict rules governing the use of additives and preservatives in organic products. Organic agriculture opposes the use of GM crops. Because organic agriculture doesn’t use any chemical pesticides or fertilisers it is better for nature and wildlife. Farms run this way provide a haven for wildlife like bees, birds and butterflies. Studies have found that insect, plant and bird life is upto 50% more abundant on organic farmland. And there are upto 75% more bees on organic land too!
