Benefits of Maca in more detail

Promotes general well-being

Used for years, Maca is known for its high nutritional value, equivalent to that of cereals. Thanks to its many components [1], Maca helps promote the general well-being of the body and adapts to needs. Its adaptogenic mechanism is characterized on one hand, by the body's ability to adapt to any type of stress, on the other hand, by its general effect which does not target an organ, a physiological function or a pathology in particular.

Its iron content makes it possible in particular to fight against anemia characterized by a lack of hemoglobin [2]. Maca is also a source of polyphenols (flavonoids), known for their antioxidant properties to fight against the formation of free radicals. The plant is also used to strengthen the immune system.

Boosts hormones and brings energy and tone

Maca is an excellent source of energy that helps boost the body effectively. Indeed, it helps to stimulate physical and mental abilities.

Maca is known for its aphrodisiac effects, relating to the stimulation of sexual desires and reproductive activity, particularly studied on animals [3,4]. Thus, it has been proven that with a certain dose of Maca, rats can produce a greater quantity of sperm [5,6], thus increasing their chances of conceiving.

In addition, a study focuses on its effectiveness and its effects on sexual functions, desires and depression in postmenopausal women [7]. However, it is possible that the sexual health effects of Maca are due to its benefits for energy and tone.

Fight against oxidative stress

The polyphenols contained in most plants, especially flavonoids, help fight against the formation of free radicals [8]. These are the cause of oxidative stress that attacks our cells and is responsible for the appearance of certain diseases and skin aging.

Thus, the consumption of Maca would slow down the signs of aging and delay the appearance of wrinkles, reduce the degradation of collagen and elastin. Maca would also prevent certain cardiovascular diseases.

Reduces symptoms of menopause

Thanks to its booster effect, Maca helps relieve postmenopausal symptoms in women. It helps in particular to strengthen the libido, to fight against the signs of depression [9,10] and the lack of muscle tone.

According to a study, in addition to Astaxanthin, Maca would also reduce hair loss during the periods of premenopause and menopause [11].

Benefits on the digestive system

The root of Maca is very rich in fiber. It thus provides beneficial effects on the digestive system in general. It reduces abdominal pain and aids digestion.
