Maca (Peruvian Ginseng) has been celebrated as an important traditional food and medicinal plant in its limited growing region, high in the Andes (14K feet) for over 2,000 years. This wildcrafted root is regarded as a highly nutritious, energy-imbuing food and medicine that enhances strength, endurance, as well as possibly containing aphrodisiac properties.
The trace amounts of 31 different minerals in maca root may be more significant than one may first realize. The root also contains vitamins, fatty acids, sterols and almost 60 different phytonutrients which are most likely to be responsible for many of maca root’s benefits. It is also a good source of linolenic acid, palmitic acid and oleic acid, 19 amino acids, and many polysaccharides. Maca is high in the amino acids phenylalanine, tyrosine, and histidine, which are required for the manufacture of the neurotransmitters dopamine and noradrenaline and is a significant source of the amino acid arginine, which assists in the generation of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide may have the ability to counteract male impotence, balance hormones, aid thyroid function and enhance libido in both men and women. Maca’s reported beneficial effects for sexual function could be due to its high concentration of proteins and vital nutrients, though maca contains p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, which reputedly may have aphrodisiac properties.
Maca root as an adaptogenic herb that helps to balance the body’s systems and normalize bodily functions during stressful situations, helping the body to adapt and return to an overall sense of well-being. It has also been shown to exhibit properties that stimulate the immune system. Current studies claim that the glucosinolates found in maca root may help to combat serious invasive infection.
As an adaptogen, BioPhotonic Spagyric ethno-Intrinsic Maca promotes healthy estrogen and progesterone levels. Research has shown that maca root contains no plant hormones, but its action relies on plant sterols, which act as chemical triggers to help the body produce a higher evel of hormones appropriate to the age and gender of the person. Clinical case studies have shown that maca may help relieve and regulate menstrual insufficiencies, infertility, menopausal symptoms including hot flashes, vaginal dryness, osteoporosis, loss of energy and temporary depression in both men and women.
Macamide compounds (molecularly mimics endocanabinoids) bind with cannabinoid receptors and using the same pathways, signal via the HPA Axis, neuroendocrine and behavioral elements of the stress response.
Maca root is used to increase energy, stamina and boost endurance, thus aiding in cases of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and restoring lost vitality and vigor. It helps to enhance memory and promote mental clarity. These actions are from maca’s alkaloids that act on the hypothalamus-pituitary axis causing gender appropriate responses in respective gonadal functions. The pituitary gland then stimulates the production of hormones in answer to the body’s needs.
