Riboflavin - B2 Helps body release energy from protein/carbohydrates/fat, and to cope better with stressful situations; essential to life. Lack of HCl leads to inefficient B2 absorption.

Insufficient B2 can lead to: -Sores at corner of mouth; -Eczema, conjunctivitis, baldness; -Burning feet, muscle weakness, dizziness, tremors/shaking; -Mental apathy.

Minerals:

Iron  is the responsible of blood production and oxygen transportation within the body, thatís why maca has been very useful for the adaptation of the Incas to the high altitudes where oxygen is scarce. Linked to childhood learning problems, poor concentration and short attention. Low levels can result in anaemia characterized by fatigue, cold sensitivity, and lowered immunity. When women enters menopause period they need a double quantity of iron in their diet.

Potassium Important to maintain the acid/alkaline balance required for efficient cellular activity. Regulates body's electrical activity (ie. heartbeat) and carries nerve messages to muscles, releasing some hormones and neurotransmitters en route. Low levels are associated with high blood pressure and heart arrhythmias.
