Maca is a plant that grows in central Peru in the high plateaus of the Andes Mountains. It has been cultivated as a vegetable crop in Peru for at least 3000 years, and has an impressive track record of helping treat physical symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

Maca is a nutritionally dense super-food that contains high amounts of minerals, vitamins, enzymes and all of the essential amino acids. Maca Root is rich in B-vitamins, which are the energy vitamins. Additionally, Maca has high levels of bioavailable calcium and magnesium and is great for remineralization and bone density support.

Interestingly, Maca Root helps balance hormones by stimulating and nourishing the hypothalamus and pituitary glands. These glands actually regulate the other glands. Therefore, when they are in balance, the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands are more likely to be functioning correctly. It has been noted that Maca has the ability to increase or decrease production of specific hormones to help bring them into balance for each individual’s needs.

The hormones that Maca root helps regulate have beneficial impact on such mental and physical functions as mood, growth, sexual development, and tissue function. Hormones also play a role in many diseases, like cancer and depression. Unlike caffeine, the boosts in energy from Maca Root are not from stimulant results.

In total more than 160 studies into the health effects of Maca have been indexed. Maca Root has been shown to be beneficial for a wide range of hormonal problems including PMS, menopause, and hot flashes. Randomized clinical trials have shown that Maca has favorable effects on energy and mood, may decrease anxiety and improve sexual desire. Maca's also a fertility enhancer and is best known for improving libido and sexual function, especially in men. For this reason, it's earned the nickname "nature's Viagra."
