Maca, also known as Peruvian Ginseng, is a plant that grows exclusively in very high altitudes of Peruvian Andes Mountain. It contains various minerals and plant sterols, and has been used traditionally to treat a range of conditions, many of which are related to sexual dysfunction and lack of energy. The herb, for example, has been used to increase fertility and stamina, promote cognitive function, enhance libido, and reduce menopausal symptoms, among other functions. In recent, researchers have discovered that Maca’s ability arises from a chemical called p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, a natural aphrodisiac. Black Maca is considered the strongest in energy and stamina-promoting properties, being both sweet and slightly bitter in taste. Black Maca contains significant amounts of natural iodine that may avoid the growth of goiters. Enhances libido & energy Traditionally the Inkan warriors believed that Maca enhanced energy and stamina. They took Maca before they went to a battle to keep their bodies strong and ready for rigorous physical activity. The Spanish conquerors who invaded the area soon got wind of Maca's benefit, and they considered this crop as valuable as gold, often using it as a medium of exchange. Animal studies with rats and mice indicate that Maca increases libido. Moreover, it has been observed that after taking Maca, androgens increase in rats. More scientific studies are needed, but scientists believe that high concentration of amino acids such as tyrosine and phenylalanine and macamides bring the effect of Maca, all of which helps increase sexual desire. Sperm Function Improvement Maca has been found to increase sperm count in normal rats and in pathological conditions produced by exposure to high altitude, lead acetate injections, and malathion. Black Maca and in minor proportion cream (gold) Maca are found to increase sperm count and sperm motility whereas red Maca had no effect.
