Maca (Lepidium meyenii Walp.), sometimes known as the 'Peruvian ginseng', is a root crop that grows in the Andes of Peru at 3500 – 4300 meter altitude. This makes it the highest grown plant in the world! After allowing the maca to grow for about 8 months, the Royal Green maca is harvested. After the harvest, the certified organic maca is dried and hand selected on size and colour (black, purple & yellow). Royal Green use 80% black, 15% purple & 5% yellow maca roots. This provides the widest profile of active nutrients possible, offering maximum effect.
The pure Royal Green production process results in a certified organic maca which is concentrated under a maximum temperature of 45 degrees Celsius. While maca is a well-known plant, not many people have discovered its full potential. The reason is that many maca products that are available are basically the same low quality, light yellowish, sweet smelling maca powders. These are usually not certified organic, are extracted using high temperatures and contain fillers (corn & rice powder) and sometimes even maltodextrin or sugar! Royal Green delivers a ‘raw’ highly concentrated (6:1) and 100% certified organic maca. Produced at low temperature, not irradiated and free of fillers.
Suggested use: 1-3 capsules per day, preferably with a meal.

We believe supplements and all wellbeing products should use high quality, effective ingredients. We aim to sell products and choose brands that meet our personal standard for quality and ideally contain naturopathic and, where possible, organic ingredients.
The majority of our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, however we do stock some products like fish oils, etc. which means our full range is not vegetarian. We clearly identify these in the product listings.
Choosing Quality Supplements
We always look for products containing very high quality ingredients with good bioavailability (how well a product is utilised by the body).
All too often we see cheap supplements, which although they may have the required dosage of the active ingredients in terms of numbers listed, they may have a low bioavailability due to being more refined or combined with poor quality additional ingredients to form tablets, or even make them appear more appetising.
Additional ingredients in cheaper supplements are often unnecessary or impact the absorption of the supplement you take, so it is important not only to check the dosage of your chosen active ingredients, but also ensure any other ingredients are good for you, too. It is the additional ingredients that can often contain allergens or make a product non-vegan, for example.
