Maca is root vegetable, like a turnip, grown at high elevations in the Andes region of central Peru. It has been used for centuries by indigenous Peruvians as a food source as well as for increasing stamina, strength, and energy. It also supports healthy libido function and improves mood. An increase in libido appears to occur after taking Maca. In studies from Peru, it appears to influence all demographics and is not associated with systemic hormones. Those studies also found that it can improve semen quality, including and rise in volume, sperm count, and motility.
Legend notes that the Incan warriors would take it prior to entering into battle, during the height of the Incan Empire.
The capsules are probably better tolerated than the powders because of the unfamiliar strong taste.
Directions: One capsule with every meal. Or as directed by your health care provider. 100 capsule/bottle. Also available in drops, powder or gelatinized powder form.
ALERT! Keep away from children. Do not take Maca if you have a diet low in iodine (found in some organic foods such as cranberries, sea vegetables, yogurt, potatoes, strawberries and iodized salt) unless you consult with your health care provider. If taken in larger doses and with a low iodine diet, it can cause goiter. Consult your health care provider if you are on medication, have a medical condition or are pregnant or lactating.
