Ingredients

The concept of this balancing act derives from the accumulated effects from the respective properties of maca and goji. Leaning upon goji’s protective and stabilizing nature as the baseline (e.g., through antioxidants, immunomodulation, antidiabetic, and cardiovascular protective activities as well as anti-aging in folkloric texts) lies the potent and versatile maca as an agent to further improve lifestyle dynamics (mental and physical health) such as sexuality (e.g., libido, reduced menstrual discomforts, fertility in folkloric hearsay), cognitive capacity (e.g., concentration, alertness, memory), and resilience (e.g., immune-booster and strength).

Maca

Color: Yellow
Process: Extracted by Water
Amount Per Capsule: 10:1 extract equivalent to 1,500mg
Nutrient Reference Values: Not established


Maca is the common name for Lepidium meyenii, a plant in the broccoli family. ‘Maca root’ refers to the root of the plant, which resembles a turnip. Maca has historically been grown in Peru.

Effects e.g. immunity, resilience and improved strength have been reported as benefits in long-term usage of Maca.

Maca has traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac. It has been used all over the world and affects both genders. It does not work through hormones, and does not increase testosterone or estrogen. Men supplementing Maca have been known to experience an increase in sperm production. Relief from menstrual discomforts is a positive phenomenon often reported by women.

Maca also appears to be a potent suppressor of prostate hypertrophy, with potency similar to finasteride, a synthetic drug for the treatment of enlarged prostates. Preliminary research also suggests maca can protect the brain from damage, improve bone health, and even improve cognitive ability e.g. concentration, alertness, memory etc. in healthy people.

Vitamin B12

Source: Cyanocobalamin
Process: Fermentation from Pseudomonas Denitrificans
Amount Per Capsule: 1.25μg
Nutrient Reference Values: 50%


Vitamin B12 (α-(5, 6-dimethylbenzimidazolyl) cobamidcyanide), also named cobalamin since it contains cobalt in the core of its molecular structure, is one of eight known B vitamins. These vitamins are water-soluble and are essential for normal human growth, development, and metabolism. In essence, vitamin B12 is synthesized by bacteria or archaea as they contain the required enzymes to assemble this molecular complexation.

Vitamin B12 is involved in the metabolism of almost all cells in the human body as it is required for DNA synthesis, as well as amino acid and fatty acid metabolism. Therefore, a wide symptomatic spectrum is related to vitamin B12 deficiency ranging from fatigue and depression to severe anemia and memory loss.

Vitamin D2

Amount Per Capsule: 12.50μg (500IU)
Nutrient Reference Values: 250%


Vitamin D ensures calcium supply and is thus essential for the maintenance of skeletal health. It increases calcium absorption in the gut and calcium reabsorption in the kidneys. Vitamin D deficiency due to malnutrition or low sunlight exposure causes impairment of bone mineralization resulting in skeletal deformities referred to as rickets. Even before the discovery of vitamin D, it became evident that sunlight or ultraviolet B (UV-B) radiation, leading to vitamin D synthesis in the skin, was effective in treatment and prevention of rickets.

Nowadays, vitamin D supplementation in babies and infants is widely established as a measure to counteract the development of rickets, the prevalence of which has decreased since the mid 20th century in Western European countries. In Africa, the Middle East and Asia, rickets still has a much higher prevalence and represents a major health burden. In adults, vitamin D deficiency is increasingly observed, especially with advancing age. Prone to depressive episodes, compromised immune system, reduced bone structures stability and fatique are symptoms known to be associated with vitamin D deficiency.
