Yet raised blood sugar is very bad news. It speeds up the aging process, leads to type 2 diabetes and increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. An epidemic of diabetes is engulfing the world.

Health benefits of Maca

Maca, a root that belongs to the radish family, is grown in the mountains of Peru and is sometimes called “Peruvian ginseng”.

There are no known side effects of maca but like any other supplement it should not be taken in large amounts. When you first start using maca it’s best to begin by taking smaller amounts and building up; even 1/2 teaspoon is a good place to start. And at the other end, 1 tablespoons (of the powder) is an average daily dose. Rotating a few days on and a few days off is often recommended.

Maca is good in smoothies, salads, drinks, cooked foods, and juices. Don’t add it to anything that’s very hot because it will lose all its benefits.

Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.

Meanwhile during this same 60 years, the American levels of heart disease, obesity, elevated serum cholesterol and Alzheimer’s have skyrocketed.

Did you know: Multiple studies on Pacific Island populations who get 30-60 per cent of their total caloric intake from fully saturated coconut oil have all shown nearly non-existent rates of cardiovascular disease? The fact is, not all saturated fats are created equal. 

The operative word here is “created,” because some saturated fats occur naturally, while other fats are artificially manipulated into a saturated state through the man-made process called hydrogenation.
