Maca root, a traditional Peruvian herb from the Andes mountains, has been used for centuries for both culinary and medicinal purposes. Known for promoting energy and vitality, it is often called Peruvian ginseng, even though it belongs to the mustard family, along with vegetables such as broccoli and kale. Originally used for its high levels of iodine and iron, Maca is now available in various forms such as capsules, liquid extracts, powders. This natural herb is renowned for its ability to improve hormonal imbalances, fatigue, sexual health, and memory. Moreover, Maca is an adaptogenic herb, meaning it can help the body adapt to environmental stress and depression. Here’s everything you need to know about the impressive benefits of Maca and how it can make a positive impact on your life.

  1. Low libido? Don’t worry!

When it comes to libido, it's no secret that each person's sex drive is unique and can change over time due to factors such as life stressors, relationship issues, and fatigue. However, low libido may also be linked to hormonal imbalances, such as low testosterone levels. Fortunately, Maca, the ancient aphrodisiac that has been used for thousands of years, may help heat things up! Maca can naturally boost your libido by promoting and balancing certain hormones, thanks to its various bioactive components, including macamides, which are believed to have a positive effect on hormone regulation. However, it's important to note that Maca alone may not be a magic cure for low libido. Adopting a healthy lifestyle, such as reducing alcohol intake and getting adequate sleep, can also have a significant impact.

  1. Conceiving a baby is easier now.

The latest data from the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN) on sperm analysis is alarming, with 60% of tested sperm showing abnormal results. Infertility problems among men are a major concern, as the main cause of infertility is often insufficient quality sperm due to imbalanced hormones. Luckily, Maca can help with this issue just as it helps with low libido. By balancing essential hormones for healthy sperm production, Maca can boost male fertility. In addition, Maca contains an important component called glucosinolates, which plays a significant role in fertility by regulating antioxidant activities that enhance sperm quality. With its powerful benefits, Maca is a natural and effective way to improve male fertility.

  1. Reducing Erectile Dysfunction (ED)  

Experiencing difficulty getting an erection can be a frustrating and embarrassing issue for any man, and unfortunately, it's a common problem. A 2019 study revealed that almost all men in Malaysia experience Erectile Dysfunction (ED) to some degree. While Maca is not a cure for ED, it may provide some relief for those with mild symptoms. Maca can stimulate antioxidants that help control free radicals, leading to improved blood flow and potentially reducing ED in men. Additionally, antioxidants can also lower the risk of heart disease, which is more prevalent in men than women. By incorporating Maca into your routine, you may experience improved erectile function and overall health benefits.

  1. It is a mood-saver!

Maca is a superfood that works wonders for men's sexual health, but did you know it can also help you fight stress and fatigue? Maca is an adaptogen that naturally prevents an increase in cortisol (the primary stress hormone) and helps regulate your mood. Unlike caffeine, Maca does not contain any stimulants, but it is rich in flavonoids that promote mental health by improving cerebral blood flow. This can impede cognitive features that contribute to depression.

By improving your mood, Maca can also enhance your libido and fertility. It's a natural and effective way to boost your energy levels, reduce stress, and promote overall well-being. Incorporating Maca into your daily routine can lead to significant improvements in your mental and sexual health, making it a valuable addition to any man's diet.

  1. A boost to your energy levels

Do you ever feel like you are running on empty, even after getting enough sleep? Well, Peruvians have been using Maca in the past to fight fatigue and increase energy levels. Although there is limited scientific research to explain how Maca works to rev up your energy levels, it is still believed that Maca’s abundance of vitamins, antioxidants, and nutrients like proteins, carbohydrates, and fiber work together to naturally boost energy and strength. Hence, that is why it is a great choice for men who are up for gym and fitness.

But hang on, how is Maca available to you?

Choosing the right form can be a bit of a puzzle, but there are three forms of herbs that you should take into consideration before making a decision: whole herbs, standardised herbs, and herbal formula. Each of these forms has its own unique benefits, therefore, it is important to understand more before making any choice.

The whole herb is the most natural form of herb that is normally dried and turned into a powder, which is available in capsule form or loose powder. Being an entire herb, it contains all of the minerals and nutrients that give it its unique properties. It is worth noting that whole herbs are inherently varied and contain a broad range of beneficial components. While they are not typically standardised, their variety can actually be a strength since each component can have distinct benefits for your body. But, do keep in mind that environmental factors and processing methods may affect the final product’s quality. Hence, it is always good to be careful and pay attention when selecting herbs to ensure you get a potent one that offers optimum benefits for your health.

On the other hand, standardised herbs provide a specific concentration of one or more beneficial constituents, ensuring the consistency of chemical compounds from batch to batch. With that being said, standardised herbs may not possess all the benefits of whole herbs although a sufficient amount of active ingredients from the herb is guaranteed. This is because those lesser-known components that might have specific internal chemical interactions could be excluded during standardisation, hence the potency may not be as high. However, it is indeed a go-to for people who require specific amounts of ingredients needed to maintain or treat certain health conditions.

What makes herbal formula different is that it usually consists of a blend of herbs that work together for a more complex and holistic effect. Moreover, herbs used in combination may serve to improve the formula and lessen or even eliminate potential negative effects. That is why if you are looking for a general health boost, herbal formulas are a great option - just be sure to follow the recommended dosage.

Curious about how to take Maca? Here are three common ways to get your daily dose of Maca:

  1. Maca Capsule:

If you are always on the move and looking for a no-fuss way to take Maca, capsules might be the way to go. All you have to do is simply swallow the capsules with some water. The best part is, each capsule comes with a pre-measured serving, making it much simpler for most people. But just keep in mind that it might take a little longer for your body to absorb the Maca from the capsule compared to Maca powder since it requires your body to break down the capsule itself first.

  1. Maca Extract:

For those who wish to take advantage of all the nutrients in maca root but would like a more practical manner to do so, liquid extracts are the best choice. It is a portable and quick-acting form of maca that can be easily added to any beverage and is swiftly absorbed by the body. Furthermore, compared to other forms of maca, liquid extracts usually come with a longer shelf life.

  1. Maca Powder:

Powder is one of the most accessible and affordable forms of Maca due to its straightforward processing. Maca powder can be easily incorporated into a variety of recipes, including smoothies, muesli, and even coffee, making it a flexible option for those looking to add Maca to their diet. However, for people who have got sensitive tummy is not advisable to take in too much Maca powder as it can be a bit tough to digest.

After all, Maca is a supplement that can help enhance your physical and mental health, as well as your sex life - naturally! It is also crucial to keep an eye on your hormone levels as you age, as imbalances can sometimes be a real stumbling block to your overall health.

So, if you are looking for a little extra help in your daily life and want to take charge of your sexual health too, Maca could be just the right ticket.
