Main features of Maca
Maca is a plant or root native to the mountainous regions of Peru, and it is actually cultivated up to 4400 meters above sea level, on the slopes of the Andes.
During the times of the Incas, the maca was a fundamental food in their diets. Not in vain, it was regarded as a gift from the gods thanks to its energizing, invigorating and aphrodisiac properties. (1)
Recent studies have confirmed some of the interesting properties of this vegetable. In 2009, a study conducted on male cyclists proved that after taking this product for two weeks, athletes experienced a better physical performance as well as a libido increase (1). In addition, it also decreased the tiredness and fatigue. This last property probably has something to the with the niacin content from this plant.
