Maca is a nutritional storehouse loaded with vitamins, minerals, and building blocks to fuel brain function, ease hormone irregularities, and nourish the body.*
B1, B2, and C. Vitamin B1 helps the body's cells convert carbohydrates into energy. It is also essential for the functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system. B2 works with the other B vitamins. It is important for body growth and red cell production and helps in releasing energy from carbohydrates. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is involved in oxidation-reduction reactions.
Contains 4 novel alkaloids, Macaina 1, 2, 3, and 4. Responsible for activating hormone regulators located in the brain that in turn regulate metabolism of calcium and phosphorus in the blood.
Known to participate in the processing against gastritis caused by bacteria.
Higher concentrations of calcium than in milk; indispensable for the nerves and the circulatory system and the formation of bones; teeth, and vital heart functions.
The probable participant in the formation of hemoglobin. Lack of copper can greatly decrease the amount of essential enzymes for the organism.
Contains 20 fatty acids.
Helps the connective tissues, including the aorta, trachea, tendons, bones, and skin.
Vital component of hemoglobin and certain respiratory enzymes. Increased iron intake is important during excessive menses and other instances of blood loss. Deficiency results in anemia, poor growth, or difficult pregnancies.
Essential for protein synthesis, and activities of muscles and nerves. Deficiency of quality magnesium can cause changes in the heart and skeletal muscles.
In an experimental diet of this element, results demonstrated that it induced growth in animals.
Regulates the transmission of neuromuscular chemicals and electrical stimuli. Important for the hemostasis of calcium and the reactions of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. The body's chemical energy is stored in phosphate compounds.
Potassium participates in the regulation of osmotic pressure; its activity is carried out inside the cells.
Along with potassium, it was discovered that an increase in the daily diet of the sodium-potassium relation helps reduce arterial pressure/hypertension. Nevertheless, an excessive increase of this relation could give rise to a diminution of the susceptibility to the bascule-cerebral accidents that do not depend on arterial pressure.
Tannins are useful in the treatment of diarrhea. Combined with other medicines, it has the utility of treating inflammatory processes like ulcers, sores, etc.
Zinc serves as a cofactor of dehydrogenises and carbonic anhydrite; its lack can cause skin rashes, taste disturbances, and mental lethargy.
Rich in quality carbs; combined with the alkaloids and other nutrients the source for sustainable energy.
Rich in bio-available maca proteins average of 11gr% in the dry root.
Loaded with cellulose and lignin which stimulate intestinal operations. Investigators claim fibers such as these diminishes the risk of cancer of the large intestine by helping the organism eliminate waste/toxin produced within one's own body.
A sugar used by the seminal plasma for the production of the semen or spermatozoa.
Calcium and iron, forming chemical compounds that influence the nutrition and health of the consumer.
Essential vitamins and minerals, nutritive properties help convalescent people or patients who are diagnosed with anemia.
Minerals which help with the production of antibodies.
