About the plant
Maca plant is a root-like vegetable shaped like a radish that grows high in the harsh climate of the Andes Mountains in South America at elevations up to 15,000 feet.

Why take it?
For more than two millennia, native Peruvians have used maca as food and medicine, to promote endurance and improve energy, sexual interest and fertility. Maca has become quite popular in the last few years with articles appearing in health magazines.

Sexual health improvement and vitality
Indigenous tribes in Peru have used maca for generations as a natural herbal remedy for libido enhancement. Other herbs that can improve one’s sexual experience include an extract from deer antler velvet, epimedium herb also known as horny goat weed and used for sexual improvement, and an extract from tribulus terrestris, the Ayurvedic herb.

Speed of onset, how fast does it work
How long does it take to feel the effects? Does tribulus work faster?
Most people notice the effects from maca after a few days. There is increased energy and vitality. It is difficult to give a precise number of days since each person is different. Tribulus terrestris extract does work faster as a sexual enhancer in men and women, usually in 2 to 3 days.


What the studies say about maca plant as a sexual enhancing herbal remedy
Feeding high dosages of maca extracts to normal male mice tripled the frequency with which they coupled with female mice. It also reduced by half the time that rats with erectile dysfunction needed between successive couplings. This indicates that this herbal supplement can be considered a Sex Pill.
Another study with rats indicates that maca feeding prevented high altitude disruption in sperm formation. Additional research indicates feeding maca to rats decreases the size of their prostate gland.

A human study confirms the rodent findings. Researchers at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, in Lima, Peru, performed a 12-week double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial in which active treatment with different doses of maca was compared with placebo. Men aged 21-56 years received 3 g of maca. An improvement in sexual desire was observed with maca at 8 weeks of treatment. Serum testosterone and estradiol levels were not different in men treated with maca than in those treated with placebo.

Another study was designed to determine the effect of a 4-month oral treatment with tablets of maca on seminal analysis in adult normal men aged 24-44 years old. Nine men received tablets of maca (1500 or 3000 mg/day) for 4 months. Serum luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone, prolactin, testosterone and estradiol levels were measured before and after treatment. Treatment with maca resulted in increased seminal volume, sperm count per ejaculation, and sperm motility. Serum hormone levels were not altered.

For better libido
Q. Is maca natural root a libido enhancer?
A. Yes, it is a libido enhancer, but there are others, such as horny goat weed or Tongkat Ali that are more potent.

Prostate gland enlargement, BPH
Effect of an integral suspension of Lepidium latifolium on prostate hyperplasia in rats.
Martinez Caballero S. Fitoterapia. 2004. Investigation, Development and Innovation Center of Soria Natural S.L., Garray, Soria, Spain.
This paper studies the effect of an integral suspension of Lepidium latifolium on experimental induced prostate hyperplasia, in rats. Oral treatment for 6 months, significantly reduced prostate size and volume in castrated rats where the hyperplasia were induced by steroid treatment.

How does the plant work? What ingredients does it have?
It contains sterols, uridine, malic acid, macamides, and glucosinolates. Oil components include phenyl acetonitrile and benzaldehyde. Many of the compounds have an effect on the central nervous system. The mechanism of action is presently not well understood, but probably seems to be independent of a hormonal effect since studies show maca does not influence to a great extent blood levels of hormones, for instance testosterone.

Maca extract
Q. What’s the different between a 10 to 1 maca extract and 4 to 1maca extract, could you break that down for me. What is the advantage?
A. Since there are no standards, it is preferable to list the percentage of the active ingredients on a label rather than calling it 5 to 1 or 10 to 1 which are meaningless.

Q. What’s better, maca root powder or maca extract for natural male enhancement?
A. At this point not enough research has been done to determine whether maca root powder is better than maca extract. We would guess there are those who prefer the former whereas others may prefer the latter.

Interactions with medications
I just recently started taking 20mg of the SSRI medication Celexa and although it helps me feel less depressed , I am having problems with the sexual side effects. My doctor said I could skip taking it a couple days a week but that really don’t help me that much because my libido is still low and my orgasms are disappointing. I recently read that maca can reduce or even reverse the ssri sexual side effects, so I bought some from your website and im going to start taking it on the days I don’t take the Celexa, and my ? is how many capsules of the maca should I take for it to help me.
This is not easy to predict since each person is different, but one normally starts with one capsule a day and increases gradually.

Maca Plant Research
Effect of Lepidium meyenii on spermatogenesis in male rats acutely exposed to high altitude (4340 m).
Gonzales Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima, Peru. J Endocrinol. 2004.
Maca is a Peruvian hypocotyl that grows exclusively between 4000 and 4500 m in the central Andes. Maca is traditionally employed in the Andean region for its supposed fertility-enhancing properties. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that Maca can prevent high altitude-induced testicular disturbances. In the Maca -treated group exposed for 21 days to high altitude, epididymal sperm count was higher than in the non-treated group at sea level sperm). In conclusion, treatment of rats at high altitude prevented high altitude-induced spermatogenic disruption.

Hormone influence
Effect of Lepidium meyeni, a root with aphrodisiac and fertility enhancing properties, on serum reproductive hormone levels in adult healthy men.

Gonzales GF, Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima, Peru. Endocrinol. 2003.
Maca is a Peruvian hypocotyl that grows exclusively between 4000 and 4500 m in the central Andes. Maca is traditionally employed in the Andean region for its supposed aphrodisiac and/or fertility-enhancing properties. This study was a 12-week double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, parallel trial in which active treatment with different doses of Maca Gelatinizada was compared with a placebo. The study aimed to test the hypothesis that Maca has no effect on serum reproductive hormone levels in apparently healthy men when administered in doses used for aphrodisiac and/or fertility-enhancing properties. Men aged between 21 and 56 Years received 1500 mg or 3000 mg Maca. Serum levels of luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, prolactin, 17-alpha hydroxyprogesterone, testosterone and 17-beta estradiol were measured before and at 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks of treatment with placebo or Maca (1.5 g or 3.0 g per day). Data showed that compared with placebo Maca had no effect on any of the hormones studied nor did the hormones show any changes over time. Multiple regression analysis showed that serum testosterone levels were not affected by treatment with Maca at any of the times studied (P, not significant). In conclusion, treatment with Maca does not affect serum reproductive hormone levels.

Combining with prescription drugs
I am currently taking trazodone 50mg for depression / insomnia. I also been experiencing a lot of fatigue and got blood work drawn and everything came back normal, but I didn’t feel normal, so I decided to see a naturopathic doctor who did a adrenal stress index on me. Well my results showed adrenal fatigue with cortisol levels starting off normal in the morning and dipping quickly throughout the day like much faster than normal, only to spike a little again at night. My naturopathic doctor gave me a tincture consisting of maca, ashwagandha, and Holy Basil and to take it twice a day. My question is will taking trazodone at night and the tincture of herbs during the day be safe for me?

A. Trazodone (Desyrel) is a tetracyclic antidepressant used to treat depression and anxiety disorders. One should be cautious combining aphrodisiac herbal supplements with these medications.

Q. What is Maca Power?
A. Maca Power is another maca product made by Nature’s Herbs. Maca Power has a combination of maca root and maca root extract.

Q. I purchased maca root powder. Should one continue taking their Pro Bono supplement and calcium supplement with this product.
A. We don’t see any major interactions, but that is the decision of your doctor. Ideally, it is best to first learn how each supplement makes you feel by itself before combining.

With coffee or caffeine
If I’m taking Maca or an herbal sexual formula can I also have coffee throughout the day, i.e. energy drinks, etc?
Each person is different, but one cup of coffee usually should not cause problems.
