Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a Peruvian plant with amazing healing potential. It is classified to both aphrodisiacs and adaptogens; it has now even become included in superfoods. This is due to the rich content of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other bioactive compounds, such as saponins, phytosterols, catechins, and alkaloids that are hidden in maca root. For centuries, it has been used in traditional herbal medicine, whereas in some areas of the world, it is a standard ingredient of the daily diet.
One of the basic applications of maca root extracts is the treatment of sexual frigidity and lowered libido. Importantly, the plant works equally well in both sexes. It has a positive effect on the level of libido and sexual performance. It also demonstrates the ability to improve the blood supply to the genitals, stimulating the sensation, promoting satisfaction arising from intercourse and facilitating the achievement of orgasm. Maca root can also be used as a support in therapies of sexual dysfunctions – studies proved that it is effective in case of erectile dysfunction associated with taking SSRIs.
It is worth remembering that Maca shows anti-stress and toning properties within the nervous system. In addition, it promotes the reduction of fatigue, boosts energy and vitality. This action is very important for maintaining optimal sexual function because the weakening of sex drive very often results from excessive stress, fatigue and overloading the body.
