What Is Maca?
The maca plant, known scientifically as Lepidium meyenii, is sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng.
It mainly grows in the Andes of central Peru, in harsh conditions and at very high altitudes — above 13,000 feet (4,000 meters).
Maca is a cruciferous vegetable and therefore related to broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and kale. It has a long history of culinary and medicinal use in Peru.
The main edible part of the plant is the root, which grows underground. It exists in several colors, ranging from white to black.
Maca root is generally dried and consumed in powder form, but it’s also available in capsules and as a liquid extract.
The taste of maca root powder, which some people dislike, has been described as earthy and nutty. Many people add it to their smoothies, oatmeal and sweet treats.
It Increases Libido in Men and Women
Reduced sexual desire is a common problem among adults.
Consequently, interest in herbs and plants that naturally boost libido is great.
Maca has been heavily marketed as being effective at improving sexual desire, and this claim is backed by research.
A review from 2010 that included four randomized clinical studies with a total of 131 participants found evidence that maca improves sexual desire after at least six weeks of ingestion
It May Increase Fertility in Men
When it comes to male fertility, sperm quality and quantity is very important.
There is some evidence that maca root increases men’s fertility.
A recent review summarized the findings of five small studies. It showed that maca improved semen quality in both infertile and healthy men.
One of the studies reviewed included nine healthy men. After consuming maca for four months, researchers detected an increase in the volume, count and motility of sperm.
It May Help Relieve Symptoms of Menopause
Menopause is defined as the time in a woman’s life when her menstrual periods stop permanently.
The natural decline in estrogen that occurs during this time can cause a range of unpleasant symptoms.
These include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, sleep problems and irritability.
One review of four studies in menopausal women found that maca helped alleviate menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and interrupted sleep
Additionally, animal studies suggest that maca can help protect bone health. Women have a higher risk of osteoporosis after menopause
Maca Can Improve Your Mood
Several studies have shown that maca can enhance your mood.
It’s been associated with reduced anxiety and symptoms of depression, particularly in menopausal women
Maca contains plant compounds called flavonoids, which have been suggested to be at least partly responsible for these psychological benefits.
It May Boost Sports Performance and Energy
Maca root powder is a popular supplement among bodybuilders and athletes.
It has been claimed to help you gain muscle, increase strength, boost energy and improve exercise performance.
Also, some animal studies indicate that it enhances endurance performance
Moreover, one small study in eight male cyclists found that they improved the time it took them to complete a nearly 25-mile (40-km) bike ride after 14 days of supplementing with maca extract .
Currently, there is no scientific evidence to confirm any benefits for muscle mass or strength.
It May Improve Learning, Memory, proprioception and sensory (kinesthetic) learning
Maca may improve brain function
In fact, it has traditionally been used by natives in Peru to improve children’s performance in school
In animal studies, maca has improved learning and memory in rodents that have memory impairment
Maca has shown to improve also the sensory learning (kinesthetic learning) and proprioception in humans.
This helps people to understand their moves better, control and synchronise the moves of the body and also learn faster and easier complex moves such as sport techniques.
It May Reduce Prostate Size
The prostate is a gland only found in men.
Enlargement of the prostate gland, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is common in aging men
A larger prostate can cause various problems with passing urine, as it surrounds the tube through which urine is removed from the body.
Interestingly, a few studies in rodents suggest that red maca reduces prostate size
It has been proposed that the effect of red maca on the prostate is linked to its high amount of glucosinolates. These substances are also associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer.
