Default Where is Maca grown

I did some research and I read Maca needs to come from Peru to be considered of quality. Is this true?

Maca does need to be grown in the high mountains in Peru, because that is where the soil which contain the correct nutrients are found. When you find a Maca brand that does not offer the same quality effects that others do it is mostly due to where they have their Maca grown.

How do we know that Maca actually comes from Peru, and how do we find out about the quality of the product?

I guess the best way would be to do your research on the company and make sure they actually work with a company in peru, i personally belief the best way to know about a product quality is to try it because all companies are going to tell you their product is of excellent quality but you will never know, even big companies, I tried gnc's products and not all their products are as good, sometimes smaller companies have better quality than theirs, so you would need to try. That's my own point of view.
