The secret food of the Incan warriors increases energy, stamina and supercharges libido!
Maca root has been used for thousands of years by native Peruvians to increase stamina, combat fatigue, and treat infertility and hormone balance.
Modern studies have found that Maca can treat a loss of libido and many menopausal discomforts including anxiety and depression.
This nutrient dense superfood contains vitamin C, B vitamins, 19 amino acids, 5 sterols, 8 minerals, micro and macro nutrients, alkaloids, tannins, and fibre.
Its adaptogenic properties help strengthen the body so it is able to better ward off disease, fight stress, and support and balance the body’s functions.
Maca stimulates and nourishes the hypothalamus, which regulates the pituitary gland, acting as a tonic for the hormone system.
In women, maca works by controlling estrogen and progesterone levels, which are essential to carrying a healthy pregnancy.
A 2004 US study found maca could provide a substantial relief from menopausal symptoms including hot flushes, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, depression and insomnia.
In men, estrogen produces erectile dysfunction and lowered production of seminal fluid. Studies have shown that men who use maca may experience an increased libido and an increase in sperm count and health.
In 2009, German research found a herbal product containing maca was more powerful in increasing libido than Viagra. A 2001 study found Maca improved sperm production and motility.
Studies have shown the following benefits of Maca:
- Supports hormonal balance
- Increases energy, stamina and combats fatigue
- Strengthens the thyroid
- Boosts libido and fertility in men & women
Alkaline Maca Powder has a sweet caramel smell and taste and is available as a powder that can be added to smoothies, juice, and shakes.
Warning! Too much maca can give you an upset stomach, rapid heartbeat and profuse sweating. Some women experience spotting or a change in their menstrual cycle when they first begin using the powder. Avoid if you are pregnant or nursing.
