Imperial Gold Maca
- Nutrient Health Profile
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.
Chacon de Popovici said it best to our company founder in 1999.
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
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."
Dr. Gloria Chacon de Popovici
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
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.
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
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
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
