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.

Sexual Function and Psychology It is reported by some clinicians - including such MDs as cardiologist Dr. Hugo Malaspina, internist Dr. Aguila Calderon, complementary medical practitioner Dr. Henry Campanile, and chelation therapist Dr. Harold Clark -that Maca assists in the maintenance of male sexual function, can be helpful in normalizing menopausal and premenstrual symptoms, including helping to maintain bone structure, fight stress and increase energy, and help maintain healthy blood glucose levels. One study found a mild improvement in subjective sexual well-being in men with erectile dysfunction after 12 weeks of taking 2400 mg of Maca, although the placebo also produced somewhat of an effect. Another crossover study administered 3.5 g/day of Maca or placebo to post-menopausal women for 6 weeks each, and found that Maca significantly reduced anxiety, depression and sexual dysfunction scores without modifying any sex hormone measures.
