Vitamins B1, B2, and C.
Vitamin B1helps the body's cells convert carbohydrates into energy. It is also essential for hte functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system.
B2 works with the other B vitamins. It is important for body growth and red cell production, and helps in releasing energy from carbohydrates.
Vitamin C ascorbic acid is involved in oxidation-reduction reactions.
Alkaloids4 novel alkaloids macaina 1, 2, 3, and 4. These are responsible for activating hormone regulators located in the brain that in turn regulate the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus in the blood.
MacronutrientsEssential vitamins and minerals, nutritive properties help convalescent people or patients who are diagnosed with anemia.
Proteins Rich in bio-available maca proteins with an average of 11gr % in the dry root.
Micronutrients Minerals which help with the production of antibodies.
FiberLoaded with cellulose and lignin which stimulate intestinal operations. Investigators claim fibers such as these diminishes the risk of cancer of the large intestine by helping the organism eliminate waste and toxins produced within the body.
CarbohydratesRich in quality carbs; combined with the alkaloids and other nutrients is the source for sustainable energy.
TanninsUseful in treatment of diarrhea. Combined with other medicines, it has the utility of treating inflammatory processes like ulcers, sores, etc.
Fatty AcidsContains over 20 fatty acids
Sodium Along with potassium, it was discovered tha an increase in the daily diet of the sodium-potassium relation helps reduce arterial pressure/ hypertension. Nevertheless, an excessive increase of this relation could give rise to a diminution of the susceptibility to the bascule-cerebral accidents that do not depend on arterial pressure
Calcium Higher concentrations of calcium than in milk; indispensible for the nerves and circulatory system and the formation fo bones, teeth, and vital heart functions.
Bismuth Known to participate in the processing against gastritis caused by bacteria.
PotassiumParticipates in the regulation of osmotic pressure; its activity is carried out inside the cells.
Copper The probable participant in the formation of hemoglobin. Lack of copper can greatly decrease the amount of essential enzymes for the organism.
ZincServes as a cofactor of dehydrogenises and carbonic anhydrite; its lack can cause skin rashes, taste disturbances, and mental lethargy.
FructoseA sugar used by the seminal plasma for the production of semen/ or spermatozoa.
Phosphorus Regulates the transmission of neuromuscular chemicals and electrical stimuli. Important for the hemostasis of calcium and the reactions of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. The body's chemical energy is stored in phosphate compounds.
IronVital component of hemoglobin and certain respiratory enzymes. Increased iron intake is important during excessive menses and other instances of blood loss. Deficiency results in anemia, poor growth or difficult pregnancies.
ManganeseIn an experimental diet of this element, results demonstrated that it induced growth in animals.
StarchCalcium and iron, forming chemical compounds that influence the nutrition and health of the consumer.
SiliconHelps the connective tissues, including the aorta, trachea, tendons, bones, and skin.
MagnesiumEssential for protein synthesis, and activities of muscles and nerves. Deficiency of quality magnesium can cause changes in heart and skeletal muscles.
