With all of the buzz around (and misuse of) the term ‘superfoods’, it is sometimes useful to remind ourselves that true superfoods really do exist. Maca is one of these true superfoods. It’s amazingly high nutrient density, it’s ability to support energy production and it’s ability to improve men’s health are well documented. Now, let’s take a closer look at the benefits of Maca for women.

1. MACA OFFERS NUMEROUS GENERAL HEALTH BENEFITS

Let’s start off with some of maca’s general benefits. Maca can help boost energy, endurance and stamina. It supplies iron which  helps  red blood cells transport oxygen around the body and therefore reduces tiredness and fatigue. Maca also contributes to normal immune and cognitive functions.

2. MACA SUPPORTS ABILITY TO WITHSTAND STRESS

Maca is  traditionally known as an adaptogen to support and help balance the body, particularly during times of stress. It is rich in a number of key vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids that our body needs during heightened levels of stress. It can support homeostasis (where your body is in a state of equilibrium and balance) during times of stress, when your body can otherwise be experiencing a hormonal rollercoaster.

3. MACA SUPPORTS MENOPAUSAL WOMEN

Maca has been traditionally used for hundreds of years in Peru in menopausal women. This use has persisted and has become commonplace in many Western countries, including Australia. Whilst maca does appear to help it’s exact benefits for supporting menopausal women are yet to be clinically proven.

4. MACA SUPPORTS MENSTRUAL WOMEN

Maca has also been traditionally used for helping relieve menstrual symptoms. Central to this is Maca’s traditional use in supporting healthy mood. Maca’s nutrient density may also be part of the reason, as it provides key vitamins and nutrients that may help support menstrual women. .

3. MACA SUPPORTS SKIN HEALTH

Some people find maca helps clear skin blemishes and balance oily skin types. Another benefit for your skin is that is decreases sensitivity. In hot or cold weather, maca may help your skin withstand extreme temperatures.
