Derived from the South American country of Peru, Maca root is a legendary root passed down from the Inca and known as “Peruvian ginseng”. The root is perhaps the most important part of the plant because it contains fatty acids and amino acids. Maca root has also been called an adaptogen, which means that it increases the body’s ability to defend itself against both physical and mental weakening. Like ginseng, it is used to increase strength, energy, stamina, libido and sexual function.
Maca has effects on the enhancement of the endocrine function which controls such conditions as fertility, sexual function, brain and nervous system physiology, and energy levels. Traditionally, Maca has been used for a variety of purposes, which can differ for both men and women. For example, women have found that it helps relieve the symptoms of PMS and menopause. Meanwhile, men have used it to enhance fertility and sexual function. Users of Maca root can derive a variety of benefits in accordance with their individual needs.
