Liquid Herbal Extract
Maca is a root plant native to Peru where it grows in harsh environments at very high altitudes. It is known for its resiliency being able to survive in the most extreme conditions of freezing temperatures, intense sunlight, and strong winds. Maca has been used for thousands of years by Peruvians as both a food and medicinal tonic to promote energy and stamina, increase libido and enhance fertility. It contains amino acid, carbohydrates, fatty acids, fiber, minerals and phytonutrients.
Maca is a powerful adaptogen that helps the body deal with biochemical, physiological stressors. It has a revitalizing effect on those who are feeling low in energy and vitality. Used as a tonic it can help reduce stress, increase energy levels and mental focus, and restore strength and vigor. It can help improve athletic performance by improving stamina and helping the body recover faster.
Maca is a member of the Brassicacae family (the same family as cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli). Maca is unique however in that it contains much higher amounts of glucosinolates, which are believed to contribute to its ability to enhance fertility. Aromatic isothiocyanates in Maca are thought to be primarily responsible for Maca’s aphrodisiac properties. Prostaglandins, sterols and amides are also thought to have a contributing role.
Maca does not appear to affect blood levels of testosterone, estradiol, and luteinizing hormones, follicle stimulating hormones or prolactin; however it has a balancing effect on these hormones, enhancing sexual function, and increasing libido in both men and women. This is thought to be due in part to the affect of alkaloids in Maca that act on the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. For perimenopause and post menopause, Maca can help reduce hot flashes and night sweats, improve mood, lessen irritability and anxiety, decrease sexual dysfunction, and increase energy levels.
Maca can also help reduce the sexual dysfunction and lowered libido often experienced by those taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s) for depression.
