Commonly referred to as Peruvian ginseng and considered a root vegetable, Maca has been a food staple in the Andean diet for thousands of years dating back as far as 1600 B.C.

Instead of providing hormones to the body, maca works as an adaptogen, meaning it adapts and responds to different people differently based on need. Say your body is producing too much of a particular hormone, estrogen for example, maca will help regulate the production downward to put you in check. However, if you’re producing too little estrogen, it will help regulate the production upward to a healthy level. It’s all about balance!


In a recent clinical on Maca for weight loss, it was observed that women taking this amazing root found relief from many of the most common menopause symptoms, such as hot flash, sleep disruptions, night sweats, and depression. [5]


Maca root has a centuries-long reputation for being a powerful aphrodisiac.  Loaded with supercharged minerals like zinc and iodine, as well as essential fatty acids, research findings on Maca suggest that it may be helpful for reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression, as well as improving mood and energy.


As infertility is becoming an increasing issue facing couples in today’s world, it’s no wonder why so many people today are turning to natural alternatives for improving their odds.  Studies support maca’s traditional use as a fertility enhancer, especially for females, noting its ability to increase serum luteinizing hormone in the pituitary gland,[8] the hormone associated with fertility among other factors in the body.
