Maca 500mg Maca 500mg

Now Foods Maca is a dietary supplement which contains 1.2 g of maca root extract in a single dose. Due to the large amount of nutritional substances beneficial for the human body system, maca root is considered to be “superfood”. Its main functions are the improvement of immune system, reduction in fatigue and regeneration improvement. Moreover, it is believed that supplementation with maca adds vitality which affects the regulation of sex steroids and the proper functions of thyroid gland.

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a plant rich in nutrients which origins from Peru. It is characterised by the almost full amino acid profile, the content of essential unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins (B1, B2, B3, C) and minerals (iron, copper, zinc, manganese, selenium and boron). Moreover, maca root contains phytosterols which may have a positive influence on the reduction of cholesterol levels in bloodstream.

Adaptogenic properties
Maca root belongs to the group of substances called adaptogens. Adaptogenic properties consist on mitigating and counteracting the results of physical and psychical stress caused by harmful environmental factors. Adaptogens regulate the condition of the central nervous system, they may improve the adaptation of the body system to the excessive physical and mental effort as well as they maintain homeostasis. They reduce fatigue and tension of the nervous system during general exhaustion. The consumption of maca leads to the increase in energy, durability and stress resistance.

Hormonal system
Numerous researches indicate that maca may support the regulation of female hormonal balance. It has been demonstrated that organic maca stimulated the production of estrogens, inhibits the follicle-stimulating hormone and reduces the symptoms of menopause in post-menopausal women. The double-blind, placebo-controlled trial has demonstrated that maca reduces psychological symptoms, including anxiety and depression, and mitigates sexual disorders in post-menopausal women, both on the estrogenic and androgenic level. These observations led the researchers to the conclusion that maca should be used as an alternative or support for hormone replacement therapy.

The results of clinical trials indicate that maca may balance and raise the level of male hormones. However, most of them refer only to sexual functions. The use of maca in men resulted in the increase in the volume of semen, sperm counts and motility during ejaculation.

Other properties
Scientific research proves that the plant has a positive influence on human mind. Its consumption improves the intellect, facilitates memorising, improves general well-being and has antidepressant effect as well as improves the functioning of neurotransmitters.

The researchers have proven that maca may prevent losses in cartilage and bone tissues and thanks to that it is an effective measure in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Probably, this property is caused by the action similar to selective estrogen-receptor modulators, through the activation of paths responsible for resorption and forming new bones.

It is also interesting that NASA put maca onto the list of food for astronauts, which confirms its effectiveness and proves that the plant is rich in nutrients.

To sum it all up, Now Foods Maca is a dietary supplement which is especially recommended for people who are physically active and perform intense physical and mental effort. It can be also used as an immunostimulating agent in the periods of growth, weakness, convalescence, exhaustion and malnutrition. It supports the treatment of osteoporosis and is an alternative to hormone replacement therapy, counteracts insomnia and shows antidepressant properties. It reduces the effects of chronic fatigue syndrome, counteracts the effects of menopause and andropause which result from the organism aging.
