HIS EXPERIENCE (Bro Science, but good shit!):
Maca root powder has many amazing health benefits. I’m just currently starting taking Black Maca powder and wanted to share the great info on this herb. Here are some things you should know about Maca.
Among the top reasons men choose to take Maca is to restore their libido. Maca works on various levels to support a healthy sex drive. First, it’s high nutrient content revitalizes the entire body. Second, Maca works to support healthy testosterone levels thereby increasing energy, stamina, and vitality. Finally, Maca contains unique nutrients called macaenes and macamides that are associated with supporting healthy libido. Among our customers, both Red Maca and Black Maca are favorites for this purpose.
One of the things that Maca does quite well is to increase blood circulation. When combined with a boost in libido, Maca has been seen to help men overcome mild erectile dysfunction (ED). A recent study of the effects of Maca for men with mild ED showed that more than 1/2 of the patient studied reported “significant’ improvements in terms of ED and general sexual well-being. We recommend Black Maca for this purpose.
Maca does not contain testosterone or any other hormone. Instead it stimulates the body to produce and regulate hormones in order to achieve a healthy hormone balance. In research Maca has NOT been shown to boost overall serum testosterone levels. However the energizing effects noted by males taking Maca suggest that it is otherwise having a positive effect on the endocrine system. Researchers speculate that Maca effects the levels of free testosterone, rather than serum levels. All Maca colors work well for this purpose.
Maca is anabolic (muscle building). It has a high content of bio-available protein and other nutrients that support healthy, natural muscle growth. It is a favorite supplement among natural bodybuilders as well as an ingredient in many muscle building blends. We have several customers who are professional or high level amateur athletes who swear by Maca for increased performance. And, based on their feedback, we recommend Black Maca, either Raw or Gelatinized for muscle building. Read more about Maca for muscle building.
For the people living at high elevations in Peru where Maca grows (14,000 feet and above) Maca is essential to maintaining healthy energy and stamina. Several scientific studies have also confirmed that Maca has a positive effect on endurance and energy levels. In one study, cyclists were able to bring their 40 km times down significantly after just 12 days on Maca. Another study showed that regular Maca dosage improved stamina among lab mice nearly 20%. Black Maca seems to have the most positive effect for this use. Once you GO BLACK, YOU NEVER GO BACK. This is some serious natural Viagra too gentleman! Happy Halloween. May all your tricks have treats!
