Health benefits of maca root**
Supports healthy energy levels – Since ancient times, maca has been known for its energy-supporting properties. These unique properties easily surpass those of caffeine without causing an energy crash afterward. Maca is also rich in B-vitamins, which play an important role in maintaining healthy energy levels.
Promotes healthy cognitive function – According to a study published in the journal Toxicology Mechanisms and Methods, maca root can support optimal brain function and memory. The perfect caffeine-free coffee alternative, maca root can help perk up your mind and enhance your focus.
Supports healthy immune function – Due to its high content of protein and antioxidants, maca root promotes a healthy immune system. Maca root is also a rich source of immune-supporting plant sterols.
Promotes healthy reproductive function – Maca is an herb well-known for supporting optimal reproductive health in both men and women. Even the Native Peruvians used maca root powder as a natural aphrodisiac. It is believed that maca owes its fertility-supporting properties to the compound, p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, which can only be found in maca.
Supports healthy cardiovascular function – The natural abundance of plant sterols in maca root promote healthy cardiovascular function by helping maintain healthy cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.
Promotes healthy hormone levels – Loaded with phytonutrients, maca root nourishes your endocrine system, including your hypothalamus and pituitary glands – the “master glands” responsible for the natural production of hormones throughout your body. This allows maca root to support healthy levels of hormones that are already within the normal range.
Supports healthy stamina and endurance levels – Maca root is loaded with important amino acids, vitamins and minerals that promote your body’s natural strength, stamina and endurance. In fact, the ancient Incan warriors consumed maca root to achieve the strength and stamina required for scaling treacherous mountainous terrain with ease. Today, athletes and bodybuilders consume maca root to experience similar benefits.
Naturally elevates your mood – Maca root contains high levels of flavonoids, plant compounds that can have a positive impact on your mood and feelings. Maca root can also perk you up like coffee without leaving you jittery or depleted afterward.
Maca possesses powerful adaptogenic properties**
Adaptogens are natural substances, such as herbs, that help the body naturally adapt to various stressors. They can also help your body achieve homeostasis or balance. Nutrient-rich maca is a good example of a powerful adaptogenic herb.
According to a study published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, maca root has powerful adaptogenic properties that promote a healthy stress response. These properties likely stem from maca root’s high levels of vitamins and unique alkaloids.
Maca root can also help your body handle stressful situations better by nourishing your adrenal glands. As a potent adaptogen, maca root can support a healthy immune system on top of clearing your mind and helping you achieve inner focus.
A rich source of antioxidants**
A 2014 study that appeared in the journal Carbohydrate Polymers found that the polysaccharides in maca root extract have high antioxidant activity. Maca root also contains other antioxidants, such as phenols, flavonoids, glucosinolates and vitamins C and E, and can even support your body's production of natural antioxidants like superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione. By regularly consuming antioxidant-rich superfoods like maca root powder, you can help protect your cells from oxidative stress and promote a healthy immune system.
