The Unique Superfood Power of Maca
Maca, sometimes called ‘Peruvian ginseng,’ is an ancient food source and herbal medicine from the Andes region with a rich supply of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, and sterols. According to ancient and modern Peruvian herbal medicine it is used for anemia, menstrual disorders, menopausal symptoms, mental clarity, tuberculosis, stomach cancer, energy, stamina and endurance, enhancing memory, reducing stress, relieving migraine headaches, and to improve general immune function. It is also used as a laxative, an aphrodisiac, to correct impotence and erectile dysfunction, enhance fertility, natural hormone replacement, and as a natural alternative to anabolic steroids.
The anti-inflammatory benefits of using Calendula Cream with radiation therapy have been known for many years. However, when it comes to choosing a product for radiation therapy, it is important that it fulfills specific requirements. Radiation Care Australia only endorses products that meet these requirements. The Martin & Pleasance Calendula Cream is a perfect example.
The reason why we support the use of Martin & Pleasance Calendula Cream is that there are no metals or fragrances, it does not contain any parabens, and it is combined with the moisturising effect of the aqueous cream. An additional advantage of the 75g Martin & Pleasance is that it comes in a tube form rather than a tub. This means that there will be less contamination for each application (after all, we recommend this product be applied 3-4 times a day while having treatment!).
