Maca for men
It is used for energy, endurance, improving athletic fitness, against impotence, to stimulate fertility, as an aphrodisiac, against erectile dysfunction and male menopause. For many men who value an eco-friendly lifestyle, maca is the harmless alternative to Viagra. It works by supporting the optimal function of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, thereby also improving the action of all endocrine glands. It also has a direct effect on the adrenal glands, giving a feeling of more energy and vitality, stimulating the thyroid and pancreas.
In the Peruvian Andes, men remain in good physical shape and vitality well beyond the age of 80. They rarely suffer from heart disease and prostate cancer compared to other modern men. The latest research on maca confirms its broad-spectrum tonic action in states of exhaustion and stress-related impaired social function. Unlike artificial stimulants, maca contains no hormones. Men report increased vitality very soon after starting its use, and the full effect is achieved within a few weeks.
Maca for women
In Peru, girls start taking it from the age of 3 so they can grow up fertile and in good hormonal health. Thanks to this, they remain fertile until late in life, menopause in them is not accompanied by unpleasant symptoms such as vaginal dryness, hot flashes and memory problems. Maca regulates the function of the ovaries, as well as that of the endocrine glands – pituitary, adrenal and pancreas. Of great importance is the fact that, unlike other remedies for menopausal problems, maca is not a hormone. Maca has a rejuvenating and renewing effect on the endocrine glands. Stimulates the pituitary-hypothalamus, which leads to an increase in the production of its own hormone. When the hypovision is stimulated, its own hormone is produced by the testicles, ovaries, thyroid gland,… and thus avoids the negative reactions to treatment with artificial estrogen and progesterone.
There are many plants that contain very weak hormones (phytoestrogens) – in contrast, maca allows our bodies to produce our own hormones. The best source of progesterone and estrogen is our own body. This is another one of the millions of reasons to use harmless and truly natural products like maca that enhance one’s own abilities to produce natural hormones. Maca is the root of a Peruvian plant that has been used since the time of the Incas. There is evidence that their kings used it in antiquity.
