Benefits of Maca!

Maca, a root that belongs to the radish family, is seen to have many great benefits and people are not aware. Maca can also come in powder form. Like everything else, consuming too much can begin to lack benefits and turn against you. Maca’s benefits can be consumed in smoothies, salads, drinks, cooked foods, and juices.

Let’s get into the benefits now, that some research suggests it may offer:

Vitamins: rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E; providing calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.

Sexual function: serves as a boost to your libido and increases endurance. At the same time it balances your hormones and increases fertility. Although limited evidence stands that it improves sexual function.

Women’s health and mood: relieves menstrual issues and menopause, alleviating cramps, body pain, hot flashes, anxiety, mood swings, and depression.

Energy: Athletes may take maca for peak performance, increasing energy levels and stamina. This does however still lack some scientific evidence.

Cancer: it is said to aid in the treatment of cancer, though science has not proven that it prevents or treat cancer.

Skin:  Maca can be used to decrease skin sensitivity, or withstand extreme temperatures.

Note: Maca should not be used by people with high blood pressure or by those with hormone-dependent cancers such as breast or prostate cancer. As with other supplements, maca hasn’t been tested for safety in pregnant women, nursing mothers, children, and those with medical conditions or who are taking medications.

More scientific studies are needed to fully prove these benefits, however if you find you need assistance in some of these factors, try maca, as your doctor what they think. It could just be your answer.
