BENEFITS OF MACA ROOTS
At a glance, you might mistake Maca for a male-only supplement, but maca has been used by women for centuries with as many benefits as men. This herb is most popular for its role as an aphrodisiac to cure impotence (erectile dysfunction) and increase sperm count. But maca is much more than that: it can increase stamina for work and sports, improve muscle tone, and fight hormone-based problems like male-pattern baldness, acne, and facial hair (on women).
Maca has been highly revered for over 2,000 years in Peru. According to legend, the Incan warriors ate Maca for strength and endurance before going to battle. The Spanish Conquistadors called it the “sex herb of the Incas.” Today it is known as “Peruvian Ginseng”. Modern studies suggest that Maca may promote libido, sexual potency and energy.
How Maca Works
With age and stress, your endocrine system stops producing enough hormones to keep you functioning at your best, this means lower energy levels and reduced physical strength and stamina. You may find it harder and harder to both work and play. Maca signals the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to “reset” your body, so that your endocrine glands (testes, ovaries, pancreas, thyroid) begin producing hormones at an optimal, youthful level.
