Maca is an adaptogenic herb that may increase energy, endurance, oxygen in the blood, physical strength and recovery, fertility and libido. While it does not appear to affect hormone levels, it has been shown to increase sexual desire and also it generally improve one’s mood.
Maca root is high in minerals (calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc), immune-enhancing sterols , essential fatty acids, fiber, carbohydrates, protein and amino acids. The dried powder possesses a sweet aroma and an earthy taste that is slightly nutty with hints of butterscotch.
*To enhance its efficiency (if you take Maca root everyday), it is advised to take a week off after every month of consistent use. Ashwagandha root could be a good alternative herb for when you are taking a break from Maca root.
Suggested use: Take 1-2 tsp daily to start; you can work your way up to 1-2 tbsp. Mix it with water, juice, smoothies, raw desserts, granola or sprinkle it in culinary dishes.
