Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR) Maca
Maca is an extract of a Brassica-family plant, found in the Andes of Peru. Its traditional uses include helping the body adapt to stress, helping with symptoms of menopause, and supporting sexual function.* Maca’s active ingredients are four compounds referred to as alkaloids which support the act on the endocrine glands to balance the effects of steroid hormones including estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.*
It attempts to raise levels of hormones that are too low, and lowers levels of those that are excessively high.* As an adaptogen, Maca may help to fight stress and increase energy.* It may also help to maintain healthy levels of blood glucose.* In men, Maca potentially helps to maintain sexual function.* In women, it may help to normalize menopause and premenstrual symptoms.*
