Product Description

NOW Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is grown at high elevations in the Andes region of central Peru. In folk medicine, Maca has been used as an agent for alleviating hormonal dysfunction, especially during menopause and andropause and as an antidepressant and wound-healing agent. Scientific research has found that maca is amazingly rich in amino acids, phytonutrients, fatty acids, and vitamins and minerals. Maca has alkaloids, steroids, tannins, saponins, and cardiotonic glycosides. Oil components include phenyl acetonitrile and benzaldehyde. Many of the compounds in maca have an effect on the central nervous system. The glucosinolates (sulphurous combinations of glycosides) are probably responsible for the influence of the root on the reproductive system and fertility. A comprehensive review of the available experimental evidence came to the conclusion that Maca may be helpful for male reproductive health by increasing seminal volume, sperm count per ejaculation, and sperm motility. There is anecdotal evidence that maca may be helpful for easing menopausal symptoms or other conditions of hormone fluctuation in women; although, there is no evidence that maca directly affects hormone levels
