Imperial Gold Maca™ - Nutrient Health Profile

The Peruvian Ancestors have given the most extraordinary gift to humanity when they cultivated this remarkable herb food. Imperial Gold Maca™ Root contains significant amounts of amino acids, complex carbohydrates, Vitamins B1, B2, C, E and minerals including calcium, phosphorous, zinc, magnesium and iron and which all benefit the body in so many ways as you will see below.

Dr. Gloria Chacon de Popovici said it best to our company founder in 1999.

"It is an honor for me to have discovered scientifically 40 years ago, the nutritional and medicinal value of this unique species of "MACA" (Lepidium peruvianum Chacon) ,the Andes plant that our ancestors have known about for thousands of years. I sincerely hope that IMPERIAL GOLD MACA™, a 100% natural product gives our planet a better quality of life not only in the present but in the future as well."

Calcium The most abundant mineral in the human body, found namely in teeth and bones. Instrumental in muscle contraction (heart), blood clotting, and maintenance of cell membranes. Can lower the irregular rate of colon cell turnover and may reduce cholesterol levels. Vitamin D increases calcium absorption in the body - both are implicated in preventing osteoporosis. Alcohol impairs calcium absorption.

Important electrolyte that maintains the acid/alkaline balance required for efficient cellular activity. Regulates body's electrical activity (ie. heartbeat) and carries nerve messages to muscles, releasing some hormones and neurotransmitters en route. Low levels are associated with high blood pressure and heart arrhythmias.
Essential trace element concentrated in the blood/liver/kidney/brain. Involved in the formation of haemoglobin. Powerful antioxidant -- co-factor in enzyme Super Oxide Dismutase). Required in both collagen and myelin sheath formation. Linked to anaemia, osteoporosis, and aneurysm.
Required for blood production and oxygen transport within the body. Linked to childhood learning problems, poor concentration and short attention span. Low levels can result in anaemia characterized by fatigue, cold sensitivity, and lowered immunity. Vegetarians/vegans must be especially conscious of absorbable iron intake.

Concentrated in white & red blood cells. Required by brain and CNS enzyme systems (ie. digestion/respiration); by the reproductive system (fertility); for bone calcification; and by the immune system (thymus gland to make hormones). Can be depleted by alcohol, breast feeding, diabetes, ageing oestrogen supplementation, corticosteroids, and diuretics. The heavy metal 'cadmium' displaces zinc in the body. Phytates can render it unabsorbable ie. seeds/nuts/soy/grains Linked to slow wound healing, loss of taste & appetite, poor night vision, allergies, dandruff, IBS, and prostate issues.

Other Minerals Found: Selenium, Boron, & Manganese

Thiamine - B1 To convert blood sugar to energy (co-enzyme) - very active people need B1 for efficient nutrient absorption from food; Destroyed by alcohol. Insufficient B1 can lead to: -Pyruvic/lactic acid accumulation in tissues, affecting nerves (headaches, irritability, chronic fatigue); -Digestive issues (Hydrochloric acid production may slow/cease resulting in flatulence,constipation, hemorrhoids, poor appetite); -Weight gain (sugar cravings, partial energy conversion stores unwanted fat)

Riboflavin - B2
Helps body release energy from protein/carbohydrates/fat, and to cope better with stressful situations; essential to life. Lack of HCl leads to inefficient B2 absorption. Lost via perspiration/urination (water soluble). Destroyed by light. Insufficient B2 can lead to: -Sores at corner of mouth; -Eczema, conjunctivitis, baldness; -Burning feet, muscle weakness, dizziness, tremors/shaking; -Mental apathy

Niacin - B3 Growth stimulating properties, important co-enzyme, used in cellular hydrogen transport. Stored in liver for transport to all tissues. Depleted by alcohol. Insufficient B3 can lead to: -Pellagra (diarrhea, dermatitis); -Furred tongue & bad breath; cankers/mouth ulcers; -Dizziness, nausea, insomnia, recurring headaches; -Irritability, and depression.

Additional Vitamins That Are Also Found: B6, C, D3, & P
