Constituents: Dried Maca weighs in at about 59% carbohydrates (starches
and sugars), 9% fiber, and slightly more than 10% protein. It has a higher lipid
(fat) content than other root crops (2.2%), of which linoleic acid, palmitic
acid, and oleic acid are the primary fatty acids, respectively. Maca is also a
rich source of sterols, including sitosterol, campestrol, ergosterol,
brassicasterol, and ergostadienol. From a mineral standpoint, Maca exceeds both
potatoes and carrots in value, and is an excellent source of iron, magnesium,
calcium, potassium, and iodine.
Maca Root Is A Nutrient Rich
Vegetable Food That Feeds The Body As A Whole And Is Very Safe To Use Even In
Large Dosages. It is the most effective herb Adaptogen available
How Much Should Be Taken? Maca Root is a food. Its designation as an herb food imparting specific health
benefits is also true, but primarily Maca is eaten as a food. Recommended dosages
are 1500 - 4200 milligrams daily. Again, you can take more, as Maca Root is a
very safe food herb product and has no over dosage effect to be concerned
about. Take Maca Root powder mixed into water
Are There Any
Side Effects or Interactions? In toxicity studies conducted in the U.S., Maca showed absolutely no
toxicity and no adverse pharmacological effects. In animal studies, the more
Maca animals consumed, the stronger and more sexually active they become. It is
also noted that women may experience some breast tenderness which is an
indication to cut back on dosage size since hormonal stimulation as been
increased substantially but noting to be concerned about. There are no known
other side effects.
Other Reported Traditional Uses: Archeological evidence has been found, that Maca was domesticated over
2000 years ago by the predecessors of the Incas and primitive cultivars of Maca
were even found in places dating back to 1600 years before Christ. So the
history of this amazing herb food is becoming very popular
Maca: Peruvians claim that Maca improves memory, combats anemia, and fights
depression. Some researchers note that when the body is well-nourished, libido
rises and depression abates; Maca's nutrient value could explain some of these
purported actions. The root, which tastes like butterscotch when it's roasted
like a potato, can also be prepared into jam, broth, puddings, and juices, and
contains five times more protein than a potato, four times more fiber, and less
fat. It contains linoleic and oleic oils (two types of essential fatty acids)
and essential amino acids.
Maca's actions on sexual function
are far better researched than its effects on mood and memory. A 1961 study
showed that Maca increased fertility in rats. Then came studies of guinea pigs,
rams, and cows, each of which corroborated Maca's fertility-enhancing effects.
For example, Maca significantly increased ram semen volume and sperm count.
Human being are now reporting similar results with continued
Researchers consider plant
sterols, isothiocyanates, and glucosinolates to be Maca's active constituents.
The sterols have been shown to reduce cholesterol; this can positively affect
erectile response if erection is compromised by artery clogging fats. And the
isothiocyanate p-methyl benzyl has been shown to increase fertility in humans.
Advance word has it that animal research will soon be published in a major
medical journal that identifies Maca's secret agents of sexual desire and
The actions of four
alkaloids from Maca root may also serve to increase animal fertility. One of the
researchers heading current studies on Maca, Peruvian biologist Gloria Chacon de
POPOVICI, Ph.D., suggests that Maca alkaloids act on the hypothalamus-pituitary
axis and the adrenals. These areas of the body produce hormones as well as
energizing substances like adrenaline. The end result could be an increase in
energy, vitality, and virility. Still, no studies of Maca itself have been
conducted on human sexual response, despite physicians' claims that Maca
positively affects ovarian function in women, and, as mentioned previously,
erectile function in men.
Today Maca is becoming
increasingly popular in Peru among native and non-native people, and the effects
of Maca are creating market demand world wide and in the United
States. Maca cultivation is on the increase, a number of government experts and
agencies are actively promoting Maca agriculture and development, and Maca is
poised to be a major botanical product on the international herbal scene as it
grows in leaps and bounds in popularity.
UNDERSTANDING GELATINIZED MACA
Gelatinized Maca does not mean gelatin capsules or mixed
with gelatin. It refers to the process the Maca undergoes, a similar process to
the purification of gelatin. The process removes starches and breaks down the
bonds that bind the starch molecules to the amino acids and other compounds
locked within. Gelatinized
Maca is produced at the National
University of Agriculture, La Molina, Peru and is recognized as the main source
of Gelatinized Maca. The university is an agricultural teaching college with
students from all over the world including South America.
This process does two things, first, it removes starch
(which comprises 33% of the maca plant) and leaves behind the natural chemicals
and nutrients, therefore concentrating the important elements of the Maca root.
It also frees the macaenes and macatides from their starch bonds which human
digestion cannot fully break, meaning the Gelatinized Maca which
will yield a much higher percentage of absorbed macaenes than non-gelatinized
