Nutritional Value Of Maca
Maca is an unassuming plant, and the most beneficial part of the plant is actually the fleshy hypocotyl, classifying it as a “root vegetable”. The organic composition of maca is what makes it such a valuable and beneficial plant that continues to grow in popularity around the world.
By adding maca to your diet, you can balance your vitamin and mineral intake, because it is a great source of B12 vitamins, along with B1, B2, C, and E. The plant is also a rich source of protein, a beneficial attribute for vegetarians and vegans, and it contains the ever-important trace elements of iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium. Maca is itself composed of approximately 60-75% carbohydrates, and 10-14% proteins, along with fiber and a small amount of fat. The high content of proteins and important nutrients may explain its’ connection to higher energy, clearer thinking, an increase in sexual libido, and many other interconnected benefits of this small South American plant.
Health Benefits Of Maca
Although the exact effects of maca have not been fully discovered, there are some health benefits that are agreed upon for the inclusion of maca in a person’s diet.
Sexual Libido: Maca is perhaps best known for its’ benefits to a person’s sexual libido. By consuming some forms of maca root, sexual stamina and drive are increased in both men and women leading some people to begin calling maca “Nature’s Viagra”. Sexual libido is partially controlled by serotonin levels in the body, and by working against the chemical factors that inhibit sexual dysfunction, it can improve the energy levels and natural excitement for sexual activity.
Sperm Count: The consumption of maca has also been linked to an increase in sperm count for men, leading to more successful reproduction efforts, because an increase in sperm count is typically reflected in higher rates of impregnation in the partner. A higher sperm count often raises sexual confidence in men, improving conditions in their personal life.
Sperm Motility: Maca does more than improve your sperm count, it also increases sperm motility! Motility is the freedom of movement and the ratio of activity versus energy consumption. By adding it to your diet, you can increase you sperm motility, which thereby increases your chances of being successful in trying to get pregnant with a partner.
Fertility: For women who consume maca, studies have shown that their ability to reproduce is also boosted. Not only is maca a good way to promote male sperm count and fertility; it is also good for both partners to actively eat maca in order to give a better chance at potential pregnancy.
Bone Health: Adding maca to your diet can also increase bone density and strength, while preventing osteoporosis. It, along with many cruciferous vegetables, are rich sources of calcium, which is an integral vitamin for promoting healthy and durable bones.
Antidepressant Properties: Maca serves another function as an inhibitor to the anti-depressant induced sexual dysfunction. It is shown to improve mood and energy levels, and counteracts the common symptoms that come from taking antidepressants, namely a decrease in sexual function and libido.
Homeostasis: Maca is a source of many unique alkaloids and a bevy of vitamin nutrients in higher quantities than are found in many foods. This combination of organic attributes gives it “adaptogenic qualities”, meaning that it can positively respond to stress in an organism and promote homeostasis, or balance, within the body, without adding any toxic or artificial chemicals.
Energy and Endurance: Maca has long been used by Peruvian natives as a way to increase energy and endurance during any task. This comes from its’ high levels of proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Now that it is an internationally available product, these same energy and endurance giving qualities can be enjoyed by anyone willing to add maca to their daily regimen.
Immune System: Adding maca into a daily diet, even as little as a tablespoon a day, can greatly increase the strength of your immune system. One of the most significant aspects of maca is its high level of protein. It has nearly five times more protein per serving than potatoes, and protein is an essential part of a balanced diet. It can boost your immune system, tissue repair, and your energy levels. Improving your immune system is one of the fundamental parts of overall health, so it is a wise choice for those who want to avoid the common cold!
