MACA Increase your Vitality Peruvian root traditionally used as an adaptogen Sexual function & psychological support for men and women Supports menopausal symptoms and hormone levels Socially & ecologically responsible harvesting Maca is Lepidium meyenii, a hypocotyl of the Brassica family which grows exclusively in the Peruvian Andes in a narrow elevation range. Maca supports emotional aspects of sexual health and mood balance during menopause. Maca (Lepidium meyenii), a plant native to Peru, is a cruciferous, mineral-rich plant whose roots are eaten as a vegetable by the native peoples. Maca balances the effects of major steroid hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, and may create effects that are specific to the condition of the individual, elevating low levels of some hormones while lowering levels of hormones present in excess. Health professionals who use Maca in their practices thus report that Maca assists in the maintenance of sexual function, and can be helpful in normalizing menopausal and premenstrual symptoms. As an adaptogen, Maca has been shown to support bone structure, fight stress, increase energy, and promote balanced blood glucose levels and cardiovascular health. Maca may function as an excellent addition to any hormone balancing program for menopausal women and has been shown to improve libido in aging men and women. Women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) may also benefit from Maca, and it functions as an adaptogen, supporting youthful energy levels and bodily functions. AOR’s Maca is sustainably harvested, with profits going directly into its local economy.
