Maca (Lepedium meyenii) is an endemic plant with adaptive action that grows in the highlands of the Andes and is traditionally cultivated as a food to increase energy levels and enhance mental clarity. Historically, the indigenous people of Peru used the root as a nutrient before warfare, while under normal circumstances, it was the exclusive prerogative of the Spanish nobility.
The components of maca are a complex mixture of carbohydrates, proteins, fiber and lipids.
Its beneficial effect is due to the sufficiency of active components of vital importance, such as B vitamins, amino acids, sterols, trace minerals, fatty acids and polysaccharides.
Maca, as a food supplement, is a natural source of nutrients, which acts as a booster for the body's smooth immune response.
According to scientific research, Maca also helps support a healthy reproductive life for both men and women. However, clinical evidence suggests that Maca does not exert a direct effect on endocrine function.
Gelatinized: NOW's maca has undergone the gelatinization process to remove the starch from the root/bulb, in order to achieve better digestion and bioavailability of the phytonutrients compared to the raw powder.
Gelatinization has nothing to do with the term gelatin and related bovine derivatives.
