Maca, known by its scientific name Lepidium Meyenii is a type of cruciferous vegetable native to the Andes of Peru. Maca is considered an adaptogen, which is a natural herb or substance which increase the body’s ability to adapt to physiological stress. It is an exceptional source of protein, fibre, vitamins such as Vitamins B1, B2, C and E, and minerals such as copper and iron, in addition to antioxidants such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase. It may improve sexual dysfunction and boost sex drive in men and women, and studies have shown that it helped enhance sperm quality and motility in men with fertility problems and helped balance estrogen levels in women with hormonal imbalances. There is no official recommended dosage for this adaptogen, so start with one tablespoon daily and increase over a few weeks to up to three tablespoons per day.
