What is Maca?
Maca Root is Lepidium meyenii, it is most commonly known as maca. it is an herbaceous biennial plant native to the high Andes of Peru. It is grown for its hypocotyl (actually a fused hypocotyl and taproot), which is used as a root vegetable, a medicinal herb, an energy lifter and semen output booster. clinical trials performed in men have suggested that maca extracts can improve semen quality, and boost libido. A small double-blind, randomized, parallel group dose-finding pilot study has shown that Maca root may alleviate SSRI-induced sexual dysfunction. A recent review states “Randomized clinical trials have shown that maca has favorable effects on energy and mood, may decrease anxiety and improve sexual desire”. Maca has also been shown to improve sperm production, sperm motility, and semen volume. The type of extract is key to maca being effective. A weak extract will not work well. Always look for those maca products using high yield extracts. If you are paying less than $20, for a 30+ pill bottle, the quality will most likely be poor.
