Now Foods Maca is a diet supplement containing maca root extract. Due to the many nutrients that are extremely valuable to the human body, the maca root is considered as "superfood" (superfood). Its main applications are: strengthening the immune system, reducing fatigue and accelerating the regeneration of the body. In addition, it is believed that its supplementation adds vigor, affects the regulation of sex hormones and normal thyroid function.
Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a very rich nutrient plant originating in Peru. It is characterized by an almost full amino acid profile, the content of essential fatty acids (EFA), the presence of vitamins (B1, B2, B3, C) and minerals (copper, zinc, manganese, iron, selenium, boron). In addition, the maca root has in its composition plant sterols, the use of which may have a beneficial effect on reducing the level of cholesterol in the blood.
The maca root belongs to a group of substances called adaptogens. Adaptogenic activity consists in mitigating and counteracting the effects of physical and mental stress caused by harmful factors from the surrounding environment. Adaptogens regulate the state of the central nervous system, they can increase the level of adaptation of the body to high physical and mental work and support the maintenance of homeostasis. They are used in states of exhaustion, fatigue and tension of the nervous system. Eating matzos leads to increased energy, endurance and resistance to stress.
A large number of studies show that maca may support the regulation of female hormone management. Organic maca has been shown to stimulate estrogen production, suppress follicle stimulating hormone and reduce the severity of menopausal symptoms (hot flushes and night sweats) in postmenopausal women. Another double-blind and placebo-controlled study revealed that maca levels psychological symptoms, including anxiety and depression, and alleviates sexual dysfunction in postmenopausal women, both estrogen and androgen. These observations led researchers to conclude that the maca should be used as an alternative or to support hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Evidence from clinical trials also shows that maca can balance and increase the amount of male hormones. Unfortunately, most of them are limited to the issue of sexual performance. The use of matzos in men resulted in increased semen volume, sperm count during ejaculation, and sperm motility.
