Maca is an interesting root. This Peruvian plant only grows in the most inhospitable parts of the Andes, yet it’s becoming popular worldwide, as an aphrodisiac and fertility booster.
Maca has a long history of use as an aphrodisiac in both men and women.
It’s not fully understood how maca works in this regard because Maca does not contain plant hormones and does not work by increasing levels of sex hormones like testosterone or estrogen, directly.
However, Maca may work by normalizing steroid sex hormones like testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen.
Thus, it improves the RATIOS between your sex hormones.
However, chemical research has demonstrated that Maca Root contains a chemical (p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate), which has “aphrodisiac” properties.
In men, it is believed to help treat male impotence and erectile dysfunction and may, in fact, increase seminal volume and sperm motility.
In women, it is said to increase libido, perk up a low sex drive and may, because of the herb’s glucosinolate content, enhance fertility.
In a double-blind 2002 study, researchers gave 57 men maca EXTRACT or placebo (sugar pill). The men received the supplements daily for 12 weeks. After 8 weeks, men in the maca groups reported heightened sexual desire .
Another study looked at 20 depressed men on SSRIs – antidepressants that often decrease sex drive – and found that daily maca extract “significantly increased self-reported libido”. A similar study looking at 45 women on antidepressants found maca had the same effect . And some have even called Maca as “nature’s answer to Viagra”.
Now, I wouldn’t go that far. However, Maca does work, IF you use the correct form and dosage.
First of all, if you’re using the “root powder”, you’ll need at least 3000-5000 MGS daily. The “root” powder is never as potent or as effective as the extract form.
So, your goal should be to get Maca EXTRACT, preferably at 6%… Which contains the beneficial chemicals (p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate and glucosinolate) causing the improvement in hormonal balance and increase of sex drive.
Additionally, research has shown that Maca Extract works much better, when combined with other complementary and synergistic herbs and vitamins, such as
- Fenugreek, Tongkat Ali, Avena Sativa, Stinging Nettle and Tribulus extract, for optimal testosterone levels.
- DIM and Selenium to reduce the female hormone, estrogen
- Vitamin C and Ashwaganda to reduce the stress hormone, cortisol
- Vitex Agnus to reduce the female hormone, prolactin
- Zinc to reduce the hair loss and prostate cancer hormone, DHT
The special synergy between these correct “stack of ingredients”, creates a much safer and more effective solution.
It’s like 1+1+1 = 6 (not 3!)
You use less, and you get more.
The “stack” saves you money and gives you better, safer results, for a longer amount of time.
Don’t worry, I’ve simplified all of this for you.
