The Maca is an herbaceous biennial or annual plant (in some sources
reported to be multi-annual) which grows in high altitudes in the
Andes of Peru. It is grown for its fleshy seedling, which is used
as a medicinal plant.
The nutritional value of dried Maca root is high, similar with
cereal grains, such as wheat and rice. Contains 60% carbohydrates,
10% protein, 8.5% fiber, and 2, 2% fats. The Maca is rich in minerals
and in particular Selenium, calcium, magnesium, and iron, and contains
fatty acids, among other things, linoleic acid, Palmitic acid, and
oil acid, also and polysaccharides.
Small-scale clinical trials in men have shown that the extract of
maca may increase libido and improve sperm quality. However, more
extensive studies are needed to confirm these preliminary results.
In particular, necessary investigations into people with sexual
dysfunction and infertility. None of the investigations that have
been done so far does not reveal any effect of maca in the levels
of sexual hormones. Toxicity has been reported.
Traditionally, the maca used to enhance fertility in humans and
animals, to increase libido, increased energy and durability and
for other medicinal purposes.
The beneficial effects of maca in connection with sexual function
possibly due to the high concentration of proteins and vital nutrients.
Researchers have identified two more ingredients, the makamides, a
kind of secondary metabolite (secondary metabolite), and makaenes
(macaenes), which are believed to play an important role.
For the above properties, Maca is starting to spread both in the
US and in Europe.
