Often referred to as Peruvian ginseng, Nature’s Viagra or Mother Nature’s aphrodisiac, the maca root has been lauded by natural healers for centuries for its medicinal properties. It was used to boost stamina by Incan Warriors before going to battle and today it is noted for its ability to increase energy, elevate mood and improve libido.  The root, which looks very similar to a radish, was first cultivated in Peru and grows at an elevation of 11,000 to 15,000 feet.

The power of the maca root lies in the fact that it is brimming with plentiful amounts of more than 31 different vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. It is referred to as an adaptogen, which is the term used for a food or herb that works with the body’s natural rhythms to strengthen the immune system, restore balance and boost energy and endurance. Adaptogens are particularly important into today’s fast-paced world where hectic schedules and environmental toxins put constant stress on the immune system.

Because the maca root helps regulate hormone levels it is considered a natural way to boost sexual potency.  Since it is nontoxic and chemical-free many view it as a viable and safe alternative to the numerous pharmaceuticals on the market for erectile dysfunction and other sexual disorders in men. Studies show that it is also sexually beneficial for women because it enhances fertility, eases the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and may serve as a natural substitute for hormone replacement therapy.

As we age, we are more likely to experience low energy levels which negatively affect all aspects of life, including sex drive. Researchers believe that maca’s ability to boost stamina and regulate hormones make it an ideal choice for improving libido in men and women of all ages. It is considered safe and no significant negative side effects have been reported.

So where can you get this natural libido-booster? Maca is available in several forms including a gelatinized powder that has a mild nutty flavor and can be sprinkled on soups, cereals, yogurt, smoothies, juices and desserts. It is also available in a capsule form and can be purchased in natural health stores.

If you are looking for a way to boost sexual potency or if you simply want to boost your overall energy and stamina, the Incan Warriors’ superfood could be the perfect solution for you. There is no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy all of the pleasures of life regardless of your age. Maca root could unlock the fountain of youth and rekindle romance for you and the one you love.
