Maca contains Glucosinolates, which are considered a key bioactive constituents responsible for the therapeutic functions of Maca. Glucosinolates work by breaking down into compounds called metabolites, which affect the pace of metabolism and trigger specific enzymatic reactions. Research has shown that Glucosinolates have beneficial health benefits including regulatory functions in inflammation, stress response, metabolism, and antioxidant activities. 1
Imlak'esh Organics Maca Powder is raw, rather than gelatinized because gelatinization involves a high heating process that degrades the content of glucosinolates. To increase digestibility and maximize bioavailability, Imlak'esh Maca is microground to a super fine powder that's 6 times smaller than the average powder particle.
