In recent years, maca varieties were evaluated separately, especially the yellow variety, black and red, showing that Red Maca has proven effects in reducing the size of the prostate in benign prostatic hyperplasia induced with testosterone.
It has the greater anti-oxidant activity and be effective in the treatment of osteoporosis by promoting bone regeneration, and improving symptoms of menopause, unlike other varieties that have properties in common but are more effective in certain cases.
- Reduce the size of the prostate
- It is an excellent antioxidant
- Combat osteoporosis, being an effective bone regenerative
REDUCE THE ZISE OF THE PROSTATE
Benign prostatic hyperplasia, which affects the quality of life of men over 50 years, discomfort when urinating or frecuent infectionseffects 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 the 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 area of the acinar lumen. These increases were reversed by red maca. The histological pattern in rats treated with red maca testosterone enanthate was more similar to that seen in controls. Red maca specifically reduces prostate size in normal rats treated with testosterone enanthate. This is an effect for mark has not been previously reported in scientific studies or historical evidence that can be an excellent alternative for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia in humans
ANTI-OXIDANT, COMBAT OSTEOPOROSIS - BONE REGENERATION
Red maca is among all the cruciferous variety which has better antioxidant activity, being an excellent alternative to combat free radicals, preventing aging and disease.
Interest in the extracts of Red Maca, shows that it is very rich in antioxidants, this is even greater because of our current concern about the brain agingdisease (memory loss, dementia). The brain consists of lipids (fatty acids) in more than 60%, and its operation, is producer of many free radicals. Over time, the damage caused by free radicals accumulate in the cells and energy production slows. In nerve cells, free radicals cause the withdrawal of the disappearance of dendrites and synapses, reducing the communication networks of cells. Ultimately, this threatens the very survival of neurons.
The older, more free radicals our cells generate more risk and experience of developing a neurodegenerative disease. Osteoporosis by estrogen deficiency is a disease that affects many women, and red maca has a protective effect on bone, with an optimal natural alternative for osteoporosis.
After treatment with red maca in rats with osteoporosis, the bone tissue is similar to normal. In later studies at the Universidad PeruanaCayetano 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 more than the group treated with hormones. Additionally, treatment with Maca has the advantage that it is a natural nutraceutical product and does not damage fabrics. From a nutritional approach, the first step to prevent any disorder of bone mineralization is through the practice of a balanced diet with adequate energy and protein intake, sufficient intake of vitamins C and D (vitamin K is mainly synthesized by the intestinal flora) of an adequate intake of calcium and phosphorus to ensure achievement of 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.
