Health Benefits

Maca contains high amounts of vitamins minerals enzymes all the essential amino acids and it contains nearly 60 phytochemicals. The extraordinary health benefits of Maca are due to the way it promotes optimal functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary master glands. Maca contains unique alkaloids that stimulate the master glands which in turn improves the overall functioning of the endocrine system.

Traditionally native medicine practitioners and herbalists have recommended maca for :

  • Treating menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes vaginal dryness and depression as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy [HRT]
  • Stimulating and regulating the endocrine system
  • Regulating and normalizing menstrual cycles
  • Stimulating fertility in both men and women
  • Supporting the immune system
  • Increasing energy stamina and endurance reducing chronic fatigue
  • Enhancing libido treating impotence
  • Revitalizing seniors mentally and physically.

Maca is essentially an adaptogen and therefore adapts to your bodies metabolism and particular needs to achieve an overall sense of wellbeing and optimal functioning. Through balancing and optimizing the functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary master glands it also balances and optimizes the functioning of the adrenal glands the thyroid and the pancreas. Because the levels of estrogen progesterone and testosterone are optimized this in turn helps regulate ovarian function and enables the adrenals to produce enough hormones to avoid symptoms during menopause.

Due to this overall affect of maca on the hormonal system and high level of protein it also acts as an effective whole food mucsle building agent.

Maca also remineralizes the body due to its high mineral content making up for the lack of minerals in modern diets and conventionally grown fruit and vegetables. Maca has such a high mineral content due to the soils and environment in which it is grown. The cooperative of indigenous maca growers who grow our maca leave the soil fallow for 5 years after each maca crop so that the soils regenerate completely with minerals.
