What 20:1 means?
It means that you take 1 and works like 20!!
This is the magical effect of high concentration in herbs.
Cheap Maca products on the market use just a dryed maca root.
SCNutrition, works only with high concentrated herb EXTRACTS, so you do not just consume low effective root powders.
This means that each gram of extract is equal to 20 grams of root, but much more effective than 20g of root, as it is absorbed hundreds times faster.
Always be sure that you buy and use extracts and not just powdered roots.
SCN only uses the greatest quality and the highest distilled herb extracts available, to ensure the safety and the effectiveness of all out products.
A huge number of research agree that maca is a very effective root, improving the hormone balance of men and women, young and old.
Maca offers a great hormonal balance, reducing the aging effects, minimizing the menopause symptoms (depression, hot flashes and disrupted sleep at night etc.), increases fertility in men, helps retain a young appearance (skin, nails, hair, joints), improves memory and prostate health.
Also, the increase of the hormones levels, helps improve the sport performance and recovery.
SCN’s organic peruvian maca 20:1 extract, is not only very effective and unique, but also very tasty, with an amazing refreshing sweet cappuccino flavor.
Each serving (1 scoop/3,1g) provides 2900mg of Organic Peruvian Maca Extract 20:1 equivalent to 58g of powdered Maca Root powder.
What Is Maca?
The maca plant, known scientifically as Lepidium meyenii, is sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng.
Maca is a cruciferous vegetable and therefore related to broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and kale. It has a long history of culinary and medicinal use in Peru.
The main edible part of the plant is the root, which grows underground. It exists in several colors, ranging from white to black.
Maca root is generally dried and consumed in powder form, but it’s also available in capsules and as a liquid extract.
The taste of maca root powder, which some people dislike, has been described as earthy and nutty. Many people add it to their smoothies, oatmeal and sweet treats.
It Increases Libido in Men and Women
Consequently, interest in herbs and plants that naturally boost libido is great.
Maca has been heavily marketed as being effective at improving sexual desire, and this claim is backed by research.
A review from 2010 that included four randomized clinical studies with a total of 131 participants found evidence that maca improves sexual desire after at least six weeks of ingestion
It May Increase Fertility in Men
There is some evidence that maca root increases men’s fertility
A recent review summarized the findings of five small studies. It showed that maca improved semen quality in both infertile and healthy men.
One of the studies reviewed included nine healthy men. After consuming maca for four months, researchers detected an increase in the volume, count and motility of sperm.
It May Help Relieve Symptoms of Menopause
The natural decline in estrogen that occurs during this time can cause a range of unpleasant symptoms.
These include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, sleep problems and irritability.
One review of four studies in menopausal women found that maca helped alleviate menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and interrupted sleep
Additionally, animal studies suggest that maca can help protect bone health. Women have a higher risk of osteoporosis after menopause
Maca Can Improve Your Mood
Several studies have shown that maca can enhance your mood.
It’s been associated with reduced anxiety and symptoms of depression, particularly in menopausal women
Maca contains plant compounds called flavonoids, which have been suggested to be at least partly responsible for these psychological benefits.
It May Boost Sports Performance and Energy
Maca root powder is a popular supplement among bodybuilders and athletes.
Also, some animal studies indicate that it enhances endurance performance.
Moreover, one small study in eight male cyclists found that they improved the time it took them to complete a nearly 25-mile (40-km) bike ride after 14 days of supplementing with maca extract .
Currently, there is no scientific evidence to confirm any benefits for muscle mass or strength.
It May Improve Learning, Memory, proprioception and sensory (kinesthetic) learning
Maca may improve brain function.
In animal studies, maca has improved learning and memory in rodents that have memory impairment
Maca has shown to improve also the sensory learning (kinesthetic learning) and proprioception in humans.
This helps people to understand their moves better, control and synchronize the moves of the body and also learn faster and easier complex moves such as sport techniques.
It May Reduce Prostate Size
The prostate is a gland only found in men.
A larger prostate can cause various problems with passing urine, as it surrounds the tube through which urine is removed from the body.
Interestingly, a few studies in rodents suggest that red maca reduces prostate size.
It has been proposed that the effect of red maca on the prostate is linked to its high amount of glucosinolates. These substances are also associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer.
PROMOTES ABSORPTION, INTESTINAL WALL REGENERATION, MICROBIOTA POPULATION, AND IMMUNE FUNCTIONS
AstraGin® has shown in 16 in-vitro and 8 in-vivo studies that are published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Molecular Nutrition & Food Research and Scientific Reports to:
- Increase the absorption of peptides, amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, and phytonutrients by up-regulating the absorption specific mRNA and transporters, such as SGLT1, CAT1, and GLUT4.*
- Repair ulcerated and damaged intestinal walls and reduce intestinal submucosa inflammation.* AstraGin® was shown in a hematoxylin-eosin stain and an MPO assay to reduce ulceration and unclear surfaces of intestinal epithelial cells and sub-mucosal edema in TNBS-induced colitis rats.
- May help maintain a healthy microbiota population by mending ulcerated and damaged intestinal epithelial cell surfaces for the microbiota to populate.*
- May help support stronger immune functions by mending ulcerated epithelial cells and reducing the inflammation in intestinal mucosal lamina propria that hosts the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT1), T cells, plasma cells, mast cells, dendritic cells, and macrophages.
