Nutrition pointers: Some have called mama root the "Peruvian ginseng". Like ginseng and ashwaghanda, it is an "adaptogen" that, instead of targeting any particular organ, it provides energy and beneficial effects to the whole system, helping the body to fight or adapt to stresses, anxieties and fatigue. It has sustained balancing effects that help the body heal.
Maca root is rich is calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, zinc, manganese and iron; Vitamins B1, B2, C, B3; insoluble fibres and lignin; and linolenic acid and oleic acids. Its calcium amount is higher than in a comparable quantity of milk. And it is found to boost glutathione effect and activity of the crucial enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) in blood and liver.
