SelvaBio Organic Gelatinized Black Maca Root
Black maca root is the scarcest of all colour roots. They make up for about 15% of the annual harvest. Many studies indicate this is because this root tends to be the most concentrated and therefore the one with more substantial results. As such we recommend this specifically to serious athletes and bodybuilders, though not strictly discriminating women of course, we do recommend women try our Organic Gelatinized Red Maca root powder instead as studies have indicated different effects in different roots for both men and women. Black for men and red for women.
Our gelatinized maca powder is original from Peru. Our local farmers maintain a traditional approach to the harvest of the roots which aside from being organic enhances and fortifies their properties to the fullest. Once harvested the roots are sun dried for about 3 months. This makes our maca taste sweeter as well as maintaining a high nutritional value.
Our maca is found only in the central highlands of Peru; on the Junin plateau between 3,800 to 4,400 m.a.s.l.
SelvaBio compromises itself with sustaining a socio-environmental approach towards its products that enables the highest quality in organic whilst taking care of the environment.
Our maca is original from Peru. Our local farmers harvest the root from the Junin plateau and let the roots to sun dry for about 3 months. After, they’re pulverized and pre-heated to achieve starch gelatinization, the same substance found in potatoes and some legumes that can cause a bloating sensation and, in sensitive stomachs unaccustomed to the consumption of maca, cause stomach ache and uncomfortable gases.
We sustain a strong relationship with our local campesino farmers in South America so they get a fair price for their crops, helping local farming families and allowing traditional farming and harvesting to continue, giving us the best organic quality.
We use the word ‘campesino’ because we believe it has sacred connotations. In South America, a farmer isn’t just an ordinary person. A farmer is the land itself, the trees, the rivers, the soil. A farmer is the bridge to the nature we’ve distanced ourselves to much with. A farmer should be loved and appreciated and so the land will feel this too.
Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. A food supplement is not a proper substitute of a balanced and varied diet.
Store in a cool, dry place.
