Maca contains high amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, all the essential amino acids and it contains nearly 60 phytochemicals. The extraordinary health benefits of Maca are due to the way it promotes optimal functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary master glands. Maca contains unique alkaloids that stimulate the master glands, which in turn improves the overall functioning of the endocrine system.
Traditionally, native medicine practitioners and herbalists have recommended maca for:
Treating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and depression, as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy [HRT]
Stimulating and regulating the endocrine system
Regulating and normalizing menstrual cycles
Stimulating fertility in both men and women
Supporting the immune system
Increasing energy, stamina and endurance, reducing chronic fatigue
Enhancing libido, treating impotence
Revitalizing seniors, mentally and physically
