Entity Health - RevitaliX, Mood Supplement, 60 Capsules
The plant maca, known scientifically as Lepidium meyenii, grows high up (above 4000m altitude) in the mountains of Peruvian Central Andes1. It is traditionally consumed for its presumed medicinal properties for centuries1. There are different colors of maca root that produce different biological responses2. Research has shown red and black maca to be nutritional supplements that possess the following health secrets1,2.
HELP IMPROVE MOOD
While acute (i.e. short term) stress boosts our cognitive functions and strengthens our mental strength in coping with future stress, the exposure to chronic stress may be harmful. It takes a negative toll on our behaviour, physical health as well as our emotions. The body releases high amounts of cortisol (i.e. stress hormones), while supressing the production of dopamine and serotonin (i.e. feel good hormones) in its reaction to stress.3,4
Numerous studies have revealed that red maca may be associated with the modulation of both dopamine and serotonin, to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression – improving one’s overall mental well-being5. Furthermore, it was also found that maca may have significantly reduced corticosterone levels (i.e. another type of stress hormone), alleviating stress as well as the symptoms of poor mood.5
It is normal for one to experience occasional anxiety. In fact, anxiety disorders are highly common among all people of different ages and genders.
It was found that maca is able to reduce anxiety and boost one’s mood.1 A study has identified the presence of GABA (an inhibitory neurotransmitter) in maca which is vital for the control of stress6,7 and subsequently elevates one’s mood. As such, maca promotes relaxation in addition to its mood-boosting actions.
