Do you know this Peruvian tonic?
Maca, also called Peruvian ginseng, is an adaptogenic herb that has effects on balance, vigor and stress.
This is an exceptional ginseng from the Andes plateaus in Peru. It grows where no other cultivable plant can survive: at an altitude of 14,000 feet, in an extreme climate of freezing cold, high winds and intense sun. Herbalists believe that resistant plants are of special therapeutic value. In this category, maca has no equal!
Mechanism of action of maca
Maca has great adaptogenic potential according to G. Gonzales, one of the main researchers to have studied maca. This adaptogenic potential explains its effects on balance, vigor and stress reduction.
Maca also has a revitalizing effect through its protein content, established fatty acids and minerals. A cruciferous vegetable, maca displays antioxidant activity through its phytochemicals which have the ability to trap and neutralize various free radicals (cell protectors).
Maca is also an excellent vegetable source of vitamin B12 (in the form of cyanocobalamin), an important vitamin for our red blood cells.
Benefits on the hormonal system of women and men
It helps to relieve the symptoms of menopause and andropause in addition to helping to improve sexual desire and performance.
It is certainly thanks to this last benefit that maca is mainly recognized. It is also nicknamed "the viagra of the vegetable kingdom".
