NZ’s most trusted Maca and Cacao Brand
Seleno Health is a specialised New Zealand based natural health company that fuses ancient plant wisdom with modern scientific research. In collaboration with two indigenous farming families in Peru we share ancient shamanic teachings and substantiate them using modern day biochemical research. We hope to educate people on the importance of connection to their foods, indigenous plant wisdom and how to enhance their own health and well-being naturally.
“Through connection, education, lifestyle changes and supplemental support everyone has the potential to achieve their health goals.”

ABOUT DR. CORIN STORKEY
These experiences led him to establish Seleno Health as a means to provide people with education and tools to manage their own health more effectively. His area of expertise is stress disorders and non-specific inflammatory conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME), fibromyalgia, Crohn’s, Psoriasis, Alopecia, UC, IBS, Lyme disease and similar auto-immune issues.
He currently leads the New Zealand based Maca and cacao research program that studies Andean and Amazonian plant medicines and substantiates their traditions through biochemical analysis. His latest projects include biochemical mapping of macamides in different cultivars of Peruvian Maca, comparisons of bioactives in different Maca preparations and substantiating traditional uses of ceremonial cacao by Peruvian shamans through biochemical mapping of active metabolites.

OUR MACA FARMERS - FLORENCIO AND YRAIDA
For both Florencio and Yraida, Maca is a way of life, a spiritual connection to Pachamama and to their roots as Incan descendants. They work incredibly hard to produce their amazing crops and their attention to detail is second to none. We are blessed to have them as part of our team at Seleno Health and to be able to assist them to share their medicine with the rest of the world.
As a family they spend a lot of time assisting their local community to improve the way of life for all others in their village. They are also an integral part of our social responsibility program and help with the allocation of funds and identification of local needs for development. You can come and experience life as an Incan farmer with them every July in Peru at their farm as an eco-tourist at one of our Andean retreats.

OUR AMARU CACAO FARMER – ROLANDO
Rolando's cacao represents the courage and perseverance of many farmers who decided to sow the best, finest cacao in the world in the face of adversity. They have found in this boldness the hope of transforming their lives through love, working in conditions of equality, justice and a passion for biodiversity and the environment.
"This love is the main ingredient in their cacao."
We 100% support the mission of Rolando and his people to Rescue Cacao in Peru and return the love, respect, environmental protection and culture that has been lost through global commercialisation and corruption in the industry.
