STUDY OF THE EFFECT OF POTATO AS tocosh probiotic in the control of body weight
The study “potato tocosh” noted among some quantitative indicators: weight change and body length growth of young rats in the animal facility and laboratories of Microbiology, Pharmacology and Biochemistry at the University San Martin de Porres.
The tocosh is considered a product of bacterial fermentation and putrefaction, according to research conducted in 1988, is a product of yeast fermentation. According to popular custom product used postpartum, colds, pneumonia, wound healing, such as antibacterial, healing of gastric ulcers and hemorrhoids, to prevent gastrointestinal infections and acute mountain sickness or “Soroche”.
The potato tocosh probiotic could be a very effective and low cost by the presence of lactobacilli at the end of the fermentation process of the Pope, much used by the inhabitants of the area of Iata, Huanuco, Peru as an antibiotic and energizing yet is known as a probiotic.
The potato tocosh is a favored food in the area and is prepared in all rural communities in Ancash. After the potato harvest, especially varieties Huayro, Iskupuru and White is the selection of the potato will serve to prepare the tocosh, using the discard (the bitterest) near the ditch is dug a pit about 60 cm deep, or you can use the same channel that fits with straw called “shicshi” brought from the heights, the straw should be very thick and lumpy straw is placed between the potato should be very hidden and protected. On this great package put many heavy stones, so that the water running slightly not take tubers. It is left there for six weeks. After this time the well is removed and placed in a shady site whole package straw and potatoes to drain the water stays there for three days.When dry rotten potatoes are removed (tocosh) and placed in a new package to save shicshi either for sale or consumption, do not save much time.
Tocosh capsules: Take 1 to 2 capsules after each meal.
Precautions: Do not exceed 6 capsules a day.


Red Maca Helps Improve Prostate Health, Renegenerate Bones

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


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.


Red MacaRed Maca is between all of this cruciferous varieties which has better antioxidant activity, being an excellent alternative to combat free radicals, preventing aging and disease.

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.

Black Maca Helps Fight Against Infertility and Stress

Maca has known effects to improve male and female fertility , but recent studies show that the variety of Black Maca has specific effects more marked on female and male fertility and improves learning, memory, stress and be an effective solution increasing the fatigue endurance.
Black Maca Maca unlike Red is more effective for prostate problems, osteoporosis as well as having higher antioxidant activity

Black MacaBlack Maca helps improve female fertility

One study showed that Black Maca helps boost the endometrium avoiding embryonic loss, improves ovarian health ensuring embryo quality, even if the mother is subjected to adverse situations such as poor nutrition.

The restriction in food intake (malnutrition during pregnancy) has a negative impact on reproduction and embryonic losses increasing generating the birth of fewer offspring, low birth weight and delayed sexual maturity in many cases reaching influence reproductive success. These researchers have shown that daily administration of Maca Black on pregnant mice with restricted diet (malnourished) prevents embryonic loss with the result of increased by 4 times the number of offspring, and optimizing their birth weight and normalizes sexual maturity. This is one of the herbs that are found in many female fertility product like this one.

A study shows the effectiveness of Black Maca on fertility, that it can drastically increase the number of offspring of female mice despite being subjected to dietary restriction, obtaining a percentage very similar to the group that was not subjected to a restricted diet. SR + VH: control animals without dietary restriction. SR + MN: control animals receiving no dietary restriction black maca. CR + V: dietary restricted animals. CR + MN: animals receiving dietary restriction Black Maca.

Also good for male fertility

It has been shown to increase in epididymal sperm count and sperm motility, such research demonstrating its effect on spermatogenesis. From the seventeenth century is known by the chroniclers of the conquest of Peru property of maca to increase fertility.

It increases memory, improves learning, increases alertness and concentration, c ombate fatigue, increasing endurance.
The unique composition of Black Maca promotes improved learning and memory in a natural way, this has been proven in scientific studies demonstrating its safe use.

There have been studies in rats and mice using four models of memory corruption. Black Maca has better beneficial effects on memory and learning than other varieties of maca and control, the results indicate that Black Maca improves memory impairment induced escopolaminas.
In the study showed that Black Maca had a marked effect on fatigue by allowing physical strength have 3 to 4 times higher than other varieties of maca, allowing to reach fatigue state much longer than the other ecotypes. For this study, mice were introduced into a pool and monitored the time comes to fatigue and sinks, the animal being immediately removed from the pool.

Solution to stress, improves mood
