Maca Root Extract
The rich soil located at these high plateaus of Peru where it is very cold and oxygen poor may account for the high levels of trace minerals found in maca root. Some Peruvian Indians of today still growing it in the same traditional way without pesticides or chemicals. The healing qualities of maca have helped the local native population thrive in this oxygen-poor plateau where they live.
Maca root contains significant amounts of amino acids, complex carbohydrates, vitamins B1, B2, B12, C and E and minerals, including calcium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium and iron. This herb has been traditionally used as an aphrodisiac for both men and women, to increase energy, vitality, stamina and endurance in athletes, promote mental clarity, for fertility and to increase male libido,and for female menstrual irregularities and hormone imbalances, including menopause. Women with menstrual irregularities have experienced greater consistency, while women with hot flashes, mood swings and most associated menopause symptoms have diminished dramatically.
