maca extract 4:1


Maca root powder comes from the root of Lepidium meyenii plant originated in Peru. Lepidium meyenii (maca) is an herbaceous biennial plant of the crucifer family native to the high Andes of Peru. It was found at the Meseta of BomBom close to Junin Lake in the Andes. Maca root extract powder is grown for its fleshy hypocotyl (a fused hypocotyl and taproot), which is used as a root vegetable and a medicinal herb. Its Spanish and Quechua names include maca-maca, maino, ayak chichira, and ayak willku.


Maca root extract powder has been marketed for its supposed benefits for sexual performance, although there is insufficient evidence to show that it helps with sexual or erectile dysfunction in older people. Aphrodisiac properties is limited by small study sizes and scientific evidence on its effectiveness is limited. In the United States, maca is promoted as a dietary supplement for several women's health issues, including symptoms of menopause. A systemic review published in 2011 found few rigorous clinical trials, and that even those were difficult to interpret. The safety and efficacy of maca for alleviating menopause symptoms is not known.
