Item Catalog Number: M832
Paradise Peruvian Gold Certified Organic Maca Root Raw Powder comes from premium hand cultivated maca roots organically grown on high altitude plains in pristine areas of the Junin region in the central Andes mountains of Peru. Maca has one of the highest frost tolerances of any cultivated plant, allowing it to grow at altitudes of 13,000 feet to 15,800 feet above sea level. It is here that the Maca plant adapts to the harsh growing environment and absorbs key minerals from the Andes sedimentary soil.
Maca is a root vegetable from the mustard family that has been used as food and medicine for thousands of years in Peru. Maca’s nutritional components include alkaloids, essential amino acids, fatty acids,vitamins, minerals and trace minerals. It is said to promote endurance, energy, vitality and stamina and to improve sexual function and virility. *

About Paradise Herbs & Essentials®
Paradise Herbs & Essentials® Inc. was established in 1994 by our founder and formulator and has been family owned and operated ever since. With a combined experience of over 26 years of training, experience and research in the natural health foods industry along with our founders extensive background in Chinese, Ayurvedic and Euro-Native American herbalism we have established ourselves as a company with big ideas and even higher standards. Our founder has received over ten years of apprentice hands-on training working directly under two Chinese medical doctors with a combined total experience of over sixty years in traditional Chinese medicine.*
At Paradise we know that the end product is only as good as your starting material. We obtain our herbs from special alliances we have built all over the world. Our herbs are grown where they are indigenous; either ethically and ecologically wild crafted or naturally cultivated without the use of any chemical fertilizers, pesticides or preservatives.*
For example: Our Ayurvedic herbs Turmeric, Ashwagandha and Holy Basil are from an isolated and pristine environment at the base of the Himalayans, or we obtain our Ginger from the Ecuadorian rain forest where it is ethically wild crafted. It is this total combination of factors: climate, soil, pristine and natural growing environment that produce the outstanding quality of all our herbs. But we don’t stop there.*
Our end product after extraction is a True Full Spectrum™ extract, although we measure standard marker compounds in most of our extracts we never fractionate or isolate. We believe in keeping all the synergistic components in the balanced ratios nature intended. We know that in many cases it is not evident which components are to be credited for the clinical effect, or if several components must act synergistically, therefore the whole root extract is always regarded as the active ingredient. It is a central philosophy of traditional herbalism to trust in the wisdom of nature to provide the most complete medicines for humans. Unlike the conventional Pharmaceutical Industry that has sought to isolate compounds to create new drugs, we believe the whole herb is the medicine and is supplying all the benefits. For example, studies have shown that a True Full Spectrum™ herbal extract of Panax Ginseng consistently outperforms an extract comprising only isolated ginsenosides. This illustrates that polysaccharides and other active constituents in Ginseng play an integral role in its clinical efficacy. Also, research analysis reveals a component in Panax Ginseng called panaxydol to inhibit cell cycle progression of human malignant tumor cells. We believe this is scientific proof for True Full Spectrum™ preparations as compared to fractionated isolates only containing the ginsenosides and possibly lacking some of the benefits.*
Our production facility is NSF certified to meet all cGMP requirements according to FDA standards. All operations are carefully documented, including in-process quality assurance checks. Equipment use/cleaning logbooks, and standard operating procedures are followed scrupulously to avoid any form of contamination or non-compliance.*
HEPA filters not only condition the air by removing moisture, they function at 95% efficiency down to 5 microns, eliminating microbial and cross-contamination. This system introduces clean air into the room creating a positive pressure which ensures that only the cleanest air contacts ingredients and finished goods.*
WE NEVER USE FILLERS OR FLOW AGENTS. Common fillers or flow agents like magnesium stearate, calcium stearate or stearic acid are hydrogenated oils. Not only are these oils unhealthy, they coat the capsule ingredients with a layer of saturated fat hindering nutrient absorption. Some studies we have seen list this hindrance to be as high as 80%. Doing the math on this, that cuts down nutrient contents utilized to 20%, not very good to say the least.*
All labels conform to all applicable DSHEA labeling laws.*
These standards of excellence will leave you with a finished product you can feel safe and confident consuming.*
