La Maca roja-morada y su contribución en la etapa del climaterio y menopausia

Red-purple Maca and its contribution in the climacteric and menopause stage


Menopause marks the end of a period and delimits between reproductive and non-reproductive life in a woman. For some women, premenopause can become constant suffering due to the lack and/or decrease of hormonal factors. This suffering translates into symptoms of hot flashes, changes in mood, physical changes as the body rearranges itself according to its new hormonal profile, the appearance of insomnia and depression.

With the advancement of medical science, countless hormone replacement treatments have been developed, however these are obtained through chemical processes and sometimes they are not suitable for all people or can trigger other unfavorable consequences for health.

Red – purple maca due to its high content of phytoestrogens and its adaptogenic capacity:

  • It gives women an adaptive capacity to this new state, significantly reducing the presence of hot flashes typical of this stage.
  • Due to its antioxidant capacity, it delays cellular aging and helps prevent the early appearance of wrinkles on the skin.
  • Helps reduce stress levels by supporting you to adapt positively.
  • Strengthens and strengthens hair, nails and bones.

Due to this same condition of red maca, it is possible that continued consumption in men can prevent the growth of benign prostate hyperplasia.

Finally, we frequently receive very good news from women who have managed to conceive or become pregnant after years of medical treatments, switching to the consumption of red maca, so we could say that red maca favors pregnancy and in general improves the HORMONAL PROFILE IN THE WOMEN.


Black maca is a highly sought after and valued variety throughout the world for its great qualities. It is the maca that has the greatest nutritional value, so for high-performance athletes who are looking to improve their physical profile, black maca helps thicken muscle fibers, hence its improvement in physical resistance.

Likewise, it also helps students with high mental exhaustion to improve concentration and replenish spent energy.

It is related to improving fertility in men; its consumption of at least 2 tablespoons in the morning and two tablespoons at night for 15 days can increase the number of sperm, as well as their mobility.


Red maca is the pink and purple varieties that take a purple-red color when dried. This variety of hypocotyl is related to the improvement of the hormonal profile in women, especially those who are entering the menopause period, helping to reduce hot flashes and/or symptoms of this stage. It has been proven that a woman who takes red maca constantly or intermittently can greatly shorten this period and therefore relieve all these annoying symptoms.

Red maca also has phytoestrogens that can help reduce prostate hyperplasia in men who consume it.
