Health Information

Maca Root

Hormone replacement and therapy, male impotence and improving other hormonal functions are topics of great interest as the population ages. The solutions that are often recommended for these health problems are hormonal drugs. However, Maca, a Peruvian root vegetable related to the potato family, has recently been receiving excellent reports in America and may provide a natural solution for these problems.

Nutrient Rich Maca Root

The nutrition value of Maca root is very high, resembling cereal grains such as maize and rice. Maca contains 11% protein, 10% calcium plus significant amounts of magnesium and potassium and numerous other minerals. It is high in natural iodine contains the B group vitamins and vitamin C and can be considered a powerhouse of nutrition to rival bee pollen!

Maca and Hormones

Women now have an important alternative to HRT (Hormone replacement therapy) and Maca works in an entirely different way than many herbs that have traditionally been used to help women during menopause.

Men have also used Maca to counteract the difficulties that they may experience in maintaining good sexual relations as they age. Maca not only improves the function of the ovaries and testes, but also helps regulate the pancreas to assist sugar utilisation, the thyroid to help metabolism and the adrenals to assist with stress. All of which work to give a feeling of greater vitality.

According to Dr Malaspina, Maca encourages the ovaries and other glands to produce the needed hormones. He also has around 200 female patients whose pre menopausal and postmenopausal symptoms were alleviated through taking Maca.

Maca & Help for Menopause

Even women with hysterectomies have found it useful in helping hot flushes, night sweats, cold feet, depression, vaginal dryness, constipation and bone loss. Dr Malaspina adamantly prefers Maca therapy to HRT and encourages women to start with Maca before menopause to help the hormonal system stay in balance.

Another doctor in Peru, Aguilar Calderon M.D. prescribes Maca for osteoporosis and the healing of bone fractures in the very elderly. This is because Maca has high levels of easily absorbable calcium, plus magnesium and silica which he is finding very useful in treating bone decalcification in children and adults. He has also helped patients overcome male impotence, erectile difficulties, male sterility and female sterility and general weakness states such as chronic fatigue through Maca therapy.
