An adaptogen such as Maca root can help balance, strengthen and support any area of the body under compromise due to stress. It contains a series of biologically active compounds, any of which may be responsible for its numerous benefits. The traces of 31 different minerals in the Maca Root can be more significant than one can realize. Maca Root also contains vitamins, fatty acids, sterols and almost 60 different phytonutrients that are likely to be responsible for many of the benefits it has.

Maca is anabolic (muscle building). It has a high content of bio-available protein and other nutrients that support healthy, natural muscle growth. It is a favorite supplement among natural bodybuilders as well as an ingredient in many muscle building blends.  We have several customers who are professional or high level amateur athletes who swear by Maca for increased performance. And, based on their feedback, we recommend Black Maca, either Gelatinized for muscle building in both women and men.


One of the more interesting effects of Maca is that it can support the enhancement of female body shape. Maca works to balance estrogen levels, which can increase the size and shape of breasts. Also, since Maca is extremely anabolic (muscle building) it can increase the size of the buttocks, which is of course the body’s largest muscle. In order to get the most benefit for the latter, we recommend using Black Maca and also getting plenty of exercise aimed at increasing the glutes. 


For the people leaving at high elevations in Peru where Maca grows (14,000 feet and above) Maca is essential to maintaining healthy energy and stamina. Several scientific studies have also confirmed that Maca has a positive effect on endurance and energy levels. In one study, cyclists were able to bring their 40 km times down significantly after just 12 days on Maca. Another study showed that regular Maca dosage improved stamina among lab mice nearly 20%. Black Maca seems to have the most positive effect for this use.

Although Maca has a long history of traditional use, it has only been scientifically researched over the past 25-30 years. This research has revealed several benefits of taking Maca that apply specifically to men.


Fertility for both men and women is the longest and most common use of Maca. We know that people indigenous to the high Andes of Peru have used Maca root to boost both human and livestock fertility for 2000 years. Stretching forward to today, Maca is still used as a first recourse for couples wanting to conceive in Peru. Recent studies from Switzerland and Peru confirm that Black Maca in particular both raises sperm count and motility and increases sexual desire.


Among the top reasons men choose to take Maca is to restore their libido. Maca works on various levels to support a healthy sex drive. First, it’s high nutrient content revitalizes the entire body. Second, Maca works to support healthy testosterone levels thereby increasing energy, stamina and vitality. Finally, Maca contains unique nutrients called macaenes and macamides that are associated with supporting healthy libido. Among our customers, both Red Maca and Black Maca are favorites for this purpose.


Maca does not contain testosterone or any other hormone. Instead it stimulates the body to produce and regulate hormones in order to achieve a healthy hormone balance.  In research Maca has NOT been shown to boost overall serum testosterone levels.  However the energizing effects noted by males taking Maca suggest that it is otherwise having a positive effect on the endocrine system. Researchers speculate that Maca affects the levels of free testosterone, rather than serum levels. We recommend either Triple Maca or Black Maca for this purpose.


One of the lesser known benefits of Maca for men is for reducing depression. Maca works as a mood up-lifter due to its high nutrient content combined with it’s energizing properties. We’ve had several reports of positive emotional health resulting from continued use of Maca.


One final use of Maca for men is to boost concentration, memory and learning. A recent study from China (2011) found that Black Maca in particular helped mice improve memory by 10% and speed learning by nearly 15%. In addition, many of our customers have reported a boost in focus and clarity when using Maca. We recommend either Triple Maca or Black Maca for this purpose.
