We get many questions from customers asking, “Which Royal Maca product is the best for me?” I’ll start the answer to this question by sharing several important points about Maca root.
I’m always genuinely grateful when researchers release new findings about Maca (Lepidium meyenii/peruvianum), the Peruvian cruciferous vegetable known for its powerful hormone-balancing properties. Since Whole World Botanicals introduced our Royal Maca® to the U.S. market more than two decades ago, we’ve focused on raising awareness of the incredible health benefits of this potent superfood.
Researchers recently published two studies on the effectiveness and safety of Maca. We now have even more scientific proof of what we’ve always known: Maca works! I’d like to share some highlights from their findings.
Father’s Day is around the corner, and it’s a time when our thoughts turn to finding the perfect gift for the amazing fathers in our lives, whether husbands or partners, fathers, step-fathers, or grandfathers.
The conventional wisdom is that men usually don’t take care of themselves, leaving it up to the women in their lives to ride herd on the health of the men they love. Interestingly, that’s no longer true! These days, more men are making the life-changing choice to follow their annual physical with changes to diet, fitness goals, and supplements. (A recent survey revealed that more than 40% of our Whole World Botanicals’ customers are men!)
Spring has sprung, and the flowers, trees, and grasses are all in glorious full bloom. Unfortunately, something else is also in full bloom: spring allergies!
Exposure to spring pollen sends your immune system into a frenzy of activity. Your body starts rapidly making Th1 and Th2 immune cells. Some of us produce far more Th2 than Th1. This imbalance causes histamine levels to skyrocket! And when we have too much histamine, we end up with a variety of allergy symptoms, including:
- Coughing and sneezing
- Watery, itchy, red eyes
- Runny, stuffy, or itchy nose
- Difficulty breathing, wheezing, shortness of breath
There’s a time of life when many men and women begin to experience unwelcome changes in hormonal health. Women notice worsening PMS, painful periods, hot flashes, or painful intercourse. Men face less frequent and shorter erections and loss of energy. This time of life is also when we become increasingly aware of the risks of a hormone-related cancer diagnosis. It’s not a theoretical concern, either! If you’re a woman, you have a lifetime chance of developing breast cancer of one in seven. Men have a one in three chance of developing prostate cancer. Yikes!! These statistics can make you feel like a walking time bomb!
In this article, I’d like to share a promising way to help reduce your risk of breast and prostate cancer while improving your sexual health and function.
