In recent years there have varieties of Maca assessed separately, especially the red variety, black and yellow, showing that Red Maca has proven effects by reducing the size of the prostate in benign prostatic hyperplasia induced with testosterone.
Red Maca has the highest anti-oxidant activity and is effective in the treatment of osteoporosis by promoting bone regeneration and reduces the symptoms of menopause, unlike other varieties that have properties in common but are more effective in certain cases.
• Reduces the size of the prostate
• Is an excellent antioxidant
• Fights against osteoporosis, as being effective bone regenerator
REDUCE THE SIZE OF THE PROSTATE
Benign prostatic hyperplasia affects the quality of life of men over 50 years, or discomfort while urinating frequently makes this affecting your quality of life. In experimental models of induction of benign prostatic hyperplasia, Red Maca was able to reduce the size of the prostate in a dose-response, only red maca reduced prostate weight in rats and mice.
Red Maca administered for 42 days reduced the size of the prostate epithelium. Testosterone enanthate increased prostatic epithelial height and the acinar lumen area. The histological picture in rats treated with Red Maca plus testosterone enanthate was similar to that observed in the controls, and his is an effect not previously described in scientific or historical evidence and can be an excellent alternative for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia in humans.
ANTIOXIDANT, BONE REGENERATION
Red Maca extracts, concentrated most antioxidants, which resultanexcelente in the current concern about the aging brain disease (memory loss, dementia), the brain is composed of lipids (fatty acids) in more than 60% and its operation is producing many free radicals over time, damage caused by free radicals accumulated in cells and energy production slows. In nerve cells, free radicals cause the withdrawal of the disappearance of dendrites and synapses, reducing communication networks of cells. Ultimately, this threatens the very survival of neurons.
The older, more free radicals generated by our cells and is experienced more risk of developing a neurodegenerative disease.
Red Maca combat osteoporosis, because it is effective in bone regeneration, osteoporosis is estrogen deficiency is a disease that affects many women and Red Maca has a protective effect on bone, being a natural alternative optimal, then the Red Maca treatment in rats with osteoporosis, bone tissue is similar to normal.
Subsequent studies conducted at the University Peruana Cayetano Heredia using animal models with induced osteoporosis compared the effects of Red Maca and Hormone Replacement Therapy. The rats who were given red maca developed an amazing ability to regenerate bone, even greater than the group treated with hormones.
Additionally Maca treatment has the advantage that it is a natural nutraceutical product that does not damage tissue. From a nutritional approach, the first step to prevent any disorder of bone mineralization is putting into practice a balanced diet with adequate energy and protein, sufficient intake of vitamins C and D (vitamin K is primarily synthesized by the intestinal flora ) of an adequate intake of calcium and phosphorus to ensure achievement of the maximum peak bone mass. Milk and its derivatives are the most important source of calcium, but other foods also contribute significant quantities: broccoli and cabbage, canned fish with soft bones and nuts.
