Balance, invigorate and energize with Vega Maca!
Organic, traditionally grown in the Andean highlands and sustainably harvested in partnership with Peruvian farmers, premium Vega Maca is produced using a proprietary heat extrusion process called gelatinization to improve absorption and concentrate the active micronutrients.
Maca is an exceptionally hardy root plant native to the Andean mountain plateaus of Peru. A member of the brassica family, maca is grown at altitudes of 14,000 feet in an extreme climate of freezing cold, fierce winds and intense sunlight, where no other crops can survive. Herbalists believe that resilient plants are especially valuable; from an herbological perspective, maca’s resiliency knows no equal.
In spite of the poor volcanic soil and harsh environmental conditions in which it grows, maca is rich in amino acids, phytonutrients, and important vitamins and minerals. Ancient, native Peruvians used maca for thousands of years as both a food and a tonic. They believed maca increased energy and stamina, improved fertility and enhanced libido.

The key ingredients of vision, determination and serendipity combined when Brendan Brazier and Charles Chang founded Vega. As a professional triathlete, Brendan Brazier, ecognized that nutrition made good athletes, great. As he self-experimented with different diet types, he realized that clean, plant-based nutrition was the competitive advantage he needed. After meeting Sequel Naturals founder Charles Chang, Brendan pitched the concept of an all-in-one nutritional shake that did not compromise quality, nourishing ingredients for convenience. Just like that, Vega’s first product—Whole Food Health Optimizer—was born. And that was just the beginning.
