The Maca Power!
Maca (Maca maca) is a root which is commonly met in the high mountains of Peru. The herb has a rich protein and carbohydrate profile where it contains 60% carbohydrates, 10% proteins, 8.5% fibers and 2.2% fats. Dried, the maca root is rich in alkaloids and essential minerals like selenium, calcium, magnesium, iron, fatty acids and 19 amino acids, polysaccharides. This organic herb which grows high in the Andes for thousands of years is known as ‘Peru’s ginseng’, ‘Peru’s viagra’, ‘The wondrous plant’ and ‘The 21st-century food’. Maca is a plant which gives endurance, energy, stimulates the immune system and improves the state of the reproductive system and the libido.
It helps with the recovery processes in aging men and women. The people from South America use the roots to boost their energy, do away with physical and mental fatigue and supplement their food regime. Maca can help with aging osteoporosis and anemia as well as hormonal imbalance in women:
- regulates menstruation
- relieve pre-menstrual syndromes
- alleviate menstruation syndromes
- help against anemia

Maca is well known as ‘herbal viagra’. Research shows that the extract from maca or maca powder can increase and improve the sperm quality in men. This is attributed to the high concentration of protein and other essential nutrients.
Drawing from this, in the Andes maca is regarded as a magical ‘symbol of youth’.
What is the impact and is there any research to back up these claims? A research was carried out for a period of 4 months to explore the effect of pills with maca on the semen analysis of healthy men in the age range between 24-44. Of all the subjects 9 men took pills with maca whose concentration was 1500 or 3000 mg per day. The levels of the serum luteinizing hormone, the follicle-stimulating hormone, prolactin, testosterone and estradiol were measured prior and during the trail. The results showed an increase in the volume of the sperm, the number of the spermatozoids as well as their mobility and the ejaculation. At the same time, the levels of the serum hormones remained unchanged.
