Lepidium meyenii, known commonly as maca, is a plant and root vegetable native to the high Andes of Peru and Bolivia. It is the root which is used in Food Supplements.
The rich soil located at these high plateaus of Peru (where it is very cold and oxygen poor), may account for its properties which, it is claimed, helped the local native population thrive where they live.
The nutritional value of dried maca root is high, similar to cereal grains such as rice and wheat. The average composition is 60% carbohydrates, 10% protein, 8.5% dietary fiber, and 2.2% fats.
In addition, zinc contributes to:
- normal acid-base metabolism
- normal carbohydrate metabolism
- to normal cognitive function
- to normal fertility and reproduction
- normal macronutrient metabolism
- to normal metabolism of fatty acids
- to normal metabolism of vitamin A
- to normal protein synthesis
- to the maintenance of normal bones
- to the maintenance of normal hair
- to the maintenance of normal nails
- to the maintenance of normal skin
- to the maintenance of normal vision
- to the normal function of the immune system
- to the protection of cells from oxidative stress
Zinc also has a role in the process of cell division. It is one busy little nutrient!
