Maca has been used in traditional eastern medicine for millennia
The ancient Incans used maca root as far back as two thousand years ago, when it was revered not only as a staple crop, but as a potent medicinal herb. Folktales about this high nutrient food describe how Incan warriors consumed large quantities of the product before going into battle to increase energy and strength.
In 2015 1,300 tons of Maca was exported around the world. Recent scientific research demonstrates Maca’s ability to impart energy, to balance and assist the hormone system and to act as a natural aphrodisiac (particularly for men). It also contains a huge amount of nutrients, minerals and all essential amino acids.
Proven By Science: Research published in 2009 measured cycling improvements in athletes over a 14 day period of taking Maca. The researchers concluded that Maca “supplementation improved 40 km cycling time trial performance” (Stone, Ibarra, et al. 2009 – full journal article).
Maca as a mood enhancer
Proven By Science: A study published in 2006 looked at the effects of all three Maca types on mood and depression. The researchers concluded that “all varieties of Maca showed antidepressant activity” (read full article).
An incredible way to balance and nurture hormones
Rather than providing hormones to the body, Maca acts an an adaptogen, meaning it responds to each body differently. If a particular hormone is being produced too much, maca will regulate the body to produce less. And if the body is producing not enough, it bumps up production.
Simply Amazing!! I don’t know how I survived before I used this product.
I have got about 10 people from my office using it now,
Proven By Science: In 2005 researchers performed a 9 month study of Maca’s effect on female hormones. The conclusion was that Maca acts as a toner of hormonal processes and that it is a serious potential alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (Meissner, Kapcynszki et al. 2005 – read full article).
Maca stimulates and nurtures the hypothalamus and pituitary glands (named the master glands) of the body, which in turn regulate the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands. Sexual development, tissue function, mood & growth are all dependent on a healthy hormonal balance, and Maca is incredible in it’s ability to do achieve just that.
Maca has been traditionally used by herbalists to treat PMS problems, menopause, hot flushes, increasing energy & endurance and for the treatment of depression rather than using hormone replacement therapy.
Proven By Science: In a double-blind study published in The Journal Of The North American Menopause Society, Maca was found to reduce depression and anxiety in post-menopausal women and to also improve sexual dysfunction (full journal article).
This organic super food delivers a beneficial amount of plant-based protein and around 8% of maca is dietary fiber. A number of important fatty acids and essential amino acids (of which 18 out of 20 are present) are also present. Maca also contains energy boosting and immune revatalising Vitamins B1, 2, and 3, along with small quantities of C, E, and B6.
Some of my old youthful vigour and virility has returned as a result of this product
Maca as a sexual stimulant & natural alternative to viagra
Known as a great tool for men to enhance fertility and improve sexual function, Maca has began to be known as nature’s alternative to viagra. Several studieshave shown Maca to have a positive effect on sexual dysfunction
Proven By Science: A double-blind study found that people with diagnosed erectile dysfunction showed significant improvements when taking just 3g a day of Maca. Libido also markably improved (Dording, Fisher, et al. 2008 – full journal article).
Maca For Fertility
Maca has also been used traditionally to help improve male fertility. As far back as 1653 a writer by the name of Father Cobo noted that he had seen first hand how this incredible super food could improve fertility.
Proven By Science: A study published by the University of Peru found that Maca improved the sperm count and testicular weight of rats when given daily doses over 14 days (Gonzales, Ruiz, et al. 2001 – full journal article).
