How it Works
Although research is gradually revealing which active compounds are responsible for maca’s medicinal benefits, many of the underlying mechanisms are still unknown. Maca contains 60% carbohydrates, 10% protein, 8% dietary fibre, and 2% fat. It is rich in essential minerals, especially selenium, calcium, magnesium, and iron, as well as vitamins B1, B2, C, and E. Maca also contains healthy fatty acids and 19 amino acids. This strong nutritional profile, paired with its glucosinolate concentration, may help synchronize hormones and stimulate the production of antioxidants.
Maca’s ability to enhance libido and sexual function may also be due to its high concentration of proteins and nutrients, which are essential for healthy reproductive function. Research shows that these effects are not due to changes in blood hormone levels. Maca’s effects on stress, mood, energy, and endurance may stem from its support for the adrenal and thyroid glands. These effects are suspected to be linked with a compound called 1-methyltetrahydro-carboline-3-carboxylic acid (1R, 3S), a molecule that is reported to influence the central nervous system.
Ginsenosides are the active components of Korean ginseng. They have been shown to improve memory by protecting cells in the hippocampus, preventing neurotoxicity of microtubules in the central nervous system, and enhancing the function of neurotransmitters.
