Incaliving’s Triple Maca Powder
Incaliving’s powder is a perfect balance between all three colors of maca root (60% red, 20% black, and 20% yellow root) in one convenient package. Maca color has been extensively researched and shown to have a multitude of potential health benefits attributed to each color (Clément et al, 2).
It is important for maca to be gelatinized since it allows the body to quickly digest it while preserving much of its nutritional value. Despite the research (Zhang et al, 5), unfortunately, most companies only offer raw maca root since it is cheaper — considering 4 pounds of raw maca is equivalent to 1 pound of the gelatinized maca Incaliving utilizes in our organic Triple Maca Powder.
Potential Health Benefits
Although Patricia E. of South Florida is aware of the multitude of possible benefits associated with Incaliving’s Triple Maca Powder (da Silva Leitão Peres, 7), she said, “I love that it may help me lower my stress levels while regulating and balancing my hormones; after a stressful day, there are times when I can’t wait to take my triple maca.” Potentially helping to balance, control, and regulate hormones (Meissner et al, 8) is just one of the more popular benefits of Incaliving’s Triple Maca Powder.
Impact on Menopausal Symptoms:
Additionally it may help in suppressing hot flashes, bloating, and possibly even mood swings during or before menopause (Lee et al, 9). It may also be linked to increased production of collagen, as well as possibly connected to increased sexual function and desire (Dording et al, 10).
The benefits for sexual function are not just for women; men may also notice an increase in free testosterone with usage of red maca (Gonzalez, 12). Additionally, some men may experience a decrease in an enlarged prostate according to some studies (Gonzales et al, 13) (Gonzales et al, 14) and red maca may help with erectile dysfunction (Shin et al, 15) (Zenico et al, 16).
In fact, an early study of maca also pointed to maca potentially helping with libido (Gonzalez et al, 17). Stress and mood may also be impacted through red maca consumption (Brooks et al, 18). For more information regarding Incaliving’s Red Maca, which is also sold separately, please click here.
Oxygenation and Detoxification:
Like the red maca root, black maca has specific potential benefits when taken daily; for instance, the black maca found in Triple Maca Powder or our vegan capsules may help in oxygenating and detoxifying the body thanks to an antioxidant enzyme called Catalase (Heck et al, 19), which may help in breaking down the body’s hydrogen peroxide molecules and converting them into oxygen and water.
Because of another important enzyme in the black maca root, SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD), the body’s primary antioxidants defense may be boosted and potentially assisted in reducing oxidative stress found in many life-threatening diseases (Sandoval et al, 20). SOD also may help in minimizing the amount of internal inflammation in the body while possibly helping to decrease the pain associated with arthritis simultaneously (Miao et al, 21).
Another benefit of our black maca, and an important first step in potentially helping in detoxifying the body from harmful substances, is that it is an all-natural adaptogen (Wagner et al, 22) and this adaptogen has a higher capacity for antioxidants (Sun et al, 23) versus other maca roots, which means it may also help in hormone balance overall (Wan et al, 24), which seems so important these days.
Of all the benefits associated with our product, “It’s the mental clarity I believe I have seen,” Tim P. of Wisconsin said when asked what he felt the most important benefit was.
Clarity and Memory Boost:
“I feel like I remember a little bit more now,” he continued saying about how black maca may help with memory (Rubio et al, 25); “In fact, there is one thing I never forget now, and that’s making sure I’ve taken my maca daily.”
It is not only the possibility of improved cognitive function (Rubio et al, 26) and memory but black maca may also help strengthen the body’s bones (Gonzalez et al, 27) and the immune system. For more information regarding Incaliving’s Black Maca, which is also sold separately, please click here.
Last but not least, yellow maca is utilized in Incaliving’s Triple Maca and vegan Capsules.
Yellow maca is the most common and abundant of the maca roots available, which is the reason it is usually the only maca root utilized by other companies. Our organically grown and all-natural yellow maca, which is also utilized in Incaliving’s Maca Cacao Powder, is known to potentially help maintain energy levels, stamina, and alertness in the morning (Gonzalez et al, 28).
Research has also demonstrated that consistent usage may increase the body’s natural ability to fight harmful UV rays (Gonzales-Castañeda et al, 29) while it also may possibly help with healthier skin (Gonzales-Castañeda et al, 30).
