Peruvian Maca Root Extract Powder Application:
The nutritional value of dried maca root is high, similar to cereal grains such as rice and wheat. The average composition is 60-75% carbohydrates, 10-14% protein, 8.5% dietary fiber, and 2.2% fats. Maca is rich in the dietary minerals calcium and potassium (with low content of sodium), and contains the essential trace elementsiron, iodine, copper, manganese, and zinc as well as fatty acids including linolenic acid, palmitic acid, andoleic acids, and 19 amino acids.
Maca is consumed as food for humans and livestock, suggesting any risk from consumption is rather minimal. It is considered as safe to eat as any other vegetable food. However, maca does contain glucosinolates, which can causegoiters when high consumption is combined with a diet low in iodine. This being said, darker colored maca roots (red, purple, black) contain significant amounts of natural iodine, a 10-gram serving of dried maca generally containing 52 µg of iodine. Though this is common in other foods with high levels of glucosinolate, it is uncertain if maca consumption can cause or worsen a goiter.
Small-scale clinical trials performed in men have suggested that maca extracts can improve semen quality, and boost libido. A small double-blind, randomized, parallel group dose-finding pilot study has shown that Maca root may alleviate SSRI-induced sexual dysfunction.A 12-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in 56 subjects found that Maca has no effect on sex hormone levels in men, including LH, FSH,prolactin, 17-OH progesterone, testosterone or estradiol.
A recent review states “Randomized clinical trials have shown that maca has favorable effects on energy and mood, may decrease anxiety and improve sexual desire. Maca has also been shown to improve sperm production, sperm motility, and semen volume.” In total over 160 studies into the health effect of Maca have been indexed by the United States National Library of Medicine,National Institutes of Health.However, a 2010 review of the extant evidence for the effect of Maca on libido found only tentative support for its aphrodisiac claims.
