Maca is a root crop grown exclusively in Peru. It’s has long been revered as a superfood even before the term was coined. Maca is an adaptogen just like ginseng. It shares many of the same health benefits, but it’s stronger and works more instantaneously.
In Peru, in the era of the Teotihuacan empire, maca was reserved for royalty. It was also given to soldiers during wartime because of its ability to improve strength, stamina, and recovery.
During peacetime however, they’re forbidden to have maca because of its strong aphrodisiac effects. Even then, maca is known for its ability to significantly boost libido.
For mental focus and physical performance
*Add a teaspoon of maca in your pre-workout drink. According to some users, gives you energy like steroids – without the unsightly stomach bloating and spike in aggressive behavior.
*Maca’s tonic effect increases drive, physical strength, and body heat. This leads to increased sweating which helps those who are trying to lose weight or achieve better muscular definition. You may experience these similar benefits with some synthetic supplements, but the noticeable difference with maca is that it doesn’t lead to palpitation. Maca root is caffeine-free.
*Taking maca after a workout not only improves performance during exercise, it also hastens muscle recovery and repair.
For mood swings and other hormone imbalance issues
*As an adaptogen, maca works on the endocrine system which is responsible for the production and balance of our hormones – chemicals that stimulate specific cells and tissues into action.
*Hormone imbalance is the cause of acne, mood swings, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, etc.
*Maca works instantly on the ones you can feel (mood swings and sex drive), and works gradually and surely on the ones you can see (acne and hair loss).
