Maca is an Andean plant with dense nutritional properties that may promote natural antioxidants in the body, such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase. Maca has also been purported to have potential to treat cancer, some tumor entities and to improve stamina in cancer patients.
Adaptogenic Properties: Maca root is considered an adaptogen, which means it may help the body adapt to stress and maintain balance. Chronic stress can weaken the immune system and contribute to the development of cancer, so adaptogenic herbs like maca may indirectly support cancer prevention by reducing stress.
Nutrient Density: Maca root is a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, iron, and potassium. These nutrients support overall health and can contribute to a strong immune system, which plays a crucial role in cancer prevention.
Potential Hormonal Balance: Some proponents claim that maca root can help balance hormones, particularly in women. Hormonal imbalances are associated with an increased risk of certain hormone-related cancers, such as breast and ovarian cancer. If maca root does have a hormonal balancing effect, it may indirectly contribute to reducing the risk of these cancers.

Research: Obviously, food choices and diet are critical to a healthy everyday life, and even more so when fighting cancer at any stage. Now, after a decade of cancer-specific nutrition research and our own FightBack Foods® products development, we are more convinced than ever that intentional nutrition is imperative for any cancer battle. Importantly, our research over the past decade drove us to appreciate more than ever that naturally occurring nutrients found in a variety of foods, can greatly assist in the battle against cancer.
Thus, we have attached primarily PUBMED sourced information about each ingredient used in our first product - FightBack Foods® Bites, and some of the relevant research that rationalizes each one’s use in our products.
