What is Maca Root

What Is The Maca Root?

The Maca Root is a relative to the radish that originates from the South American high Andes and has been referred to as the “Peruvian Ginseng” due to its energy-providing properties.  Much like turnips, they are known for exhibiting a leafy green herbaceous top above the ground while a short pear-shaped body grows beneath the topsoil.

What Health Benefits Does Maca Provide?

It Is Rich In Antioxidants

Maca is known for being chock full of nutrients, particularly antioxidants. In fact, studies have shown that the Maca Root has the potential to fight free radical damage in the body. If you are wondering why you should care about this subterranean plant the answer is quite simple — the antioxidants that it can supplement into your diet have the potential to aid in preventing serious health conditions like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

It Enhances Mood, Energy, And Memory

You may remember when we said earlier that Maca is known as the “Peruvian Ginseng” because of its energy improving qualities, but that is not all that it can do. While also being a good alternative to caffeine, Maca is extremely beneficial in improving functions such as mood and memory as a result of its high concentration of antioxidants.

It Can Lower Blood Pressure

Studies have estimated that over 46 percent of adult Americans suffer from higher than average blood pressure. While this is a culmination of many different factors, an adult with high blood pressure can utilize Maca to lower their blood pressure to safer, more manageable levels.

It Boosts The Immune System

Ingestion of the Maca root is an excellent way to ensure that you spend less time ill at home. When ingested, the Maca root increases the natural production of antibodies and T cells in the immune system, thus increasing your body's ability to fight off foreign particles that could be potentially dangerous to your health.
