Doctors On Maca

I give my patients a choice; either natural hormones which are made to be biodentical to human estrogen and progesterone or Peruvian maca root. The ones who have chosen to go with Peruvian maca root  are doing phenomenally well." - Dr. Cynthia Watson, M.D., Santa Monica, California.

"Peruvian maca root regulates the organs of internal secretion, such as the pituitary, the adrenal glands, and the pancreas. I have had perhaps 200 female patients whose menopause symptoms are alleviated by taking maca." - Dr. Hugo Malaspina, M.D., Lima, Peru.

"I'm amazed at how fast Peruvian maca root works...within just four days of taking Peruvian maca root capsules, M. T. went through an enormous turnaround...she feels strong and vigorous and her depression is gone." - Dr. Harold Clark, M.D., New Rochelle, N.Y.

"Peruvian maca root is very useful in treating male impotence, erectile disfunction, menopausal symptoms, and general fatigue." - Dr. Aguila Calderon, M.D., Lima, Peru.

"Using this Peruvian red maca root myself, I personally experienced a significant improvement in erectile tissue response. What I see in Peruvian maca root is a means of normalizing our steroid hormones like testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen. Therefore it has facility to forestall the hormonal changes of aging." - Dr. Garry F, Gordon, M.D., Chicago, Illinois.

Shipping and Returns

General Shipping

At The Maca Team, orders generally leave our warehouse within one business day. Orders placed Friday afternoon (EST) Saturday and Sunday, leave our warehouse on Monday morning. Occasionally, due to unforeseen circumstances as well as holidays, an order will take an extra day to ship.

USA Orders

We ship within the US and to APO boxes using USPS. We always use a tracking number and send it to you as soon as it’s available. For some expedited shipping we sometimes use Fedex or UPS.

International Orders

We regularly ship our products all over the world using USPS global priority mail. (It’s typically 10-14 business days to most destinations). Since your order will be shipped outside the U.S., you may be required to pay international customs and brokerage fees. Sunfood is not responsible for these fees, even if you do not accept the package, so if you are concerned, please check with your country’s customs policies prior to ordering.

 Damages & Exchanges

Your satisfaction is our top priority.   Since we sell the best maca available, we rarely have any problems. But if your product is damaged or defective in some way, we’ll make sure you’re taken care of.  If your product was damaged during shipping, contact us and we’ll help you get it replaced immediately.


Please find your specific situation from the list of scenarios below to learn how we handle that particular situation:

1. You decided to cancel your order

If the order hasn’t been shipped out yet, we can cancel the order and issue you a refund with no penalty. If you do not cancel the order until after it has already been shipped, your situation will be handled according to situation 4 below.

2. You received an item that appears to have been damaged during shipping

If a package appears to have been damaged during shipping, the item is oftentimes still okay.  If the packaging for your item appears to be damaged, be sure to keep all the original packaging until you’ve determined whether or not a shipping insurance claim needs to be submitted. If any of the original packaging is thrown away, we cannot file a shipping insurance claim. Discarding shipping materials or box contents waves your right to get your product replaced or repaired.  Contact us if this is the case.  Once we have confirmed that you still have the original shipping materials and that the item was damaged during shipping, and after we have officially filed the shipping insurance claim forms, we will send out new parts or a new product at no cost to you.

3. You’ve received the product but you’ve decided you want to return it

If you receive an item and decide to return it, you can do so if

  1. The  item is unopened, unused, and still in the original packaging.
  2. You contact us to notify us that you’d like to return the item within 30 calendar days of receiving the item.
  3. You contact us to get an RMA Number and return instructions PRIOR to returning the item.

If you meet all three of the above requirements, we will refund you the purchase price of your order, less shipping costs.

You are responsible for return shipping charges to return the product to us.

4. You refuse the delivery of your order, and it comes back to us

If you refuse an item and it comes back to us, you will be issued a refund LESS a 15% restocking fee and our actual cost for shipping and handling.
