Natural Viagra?

Maca Natural LibidoMaca is famed to be both an aphrodisiac and fertility treatment.

It was first noticed that maca had an effect on the sexual health of living creatures by shepherds in the Andes Mountains. They noticed that their flocks seems to be a lot more virile and fertile after feeding them maca. This has been confirmed recently by a study that has shown that maca increases the sperm count of livestock.

There have also been a lot of recent studies into the claims that maca increases sex drive and helps with impotence.

Italian researchers gave 50 men suffering from erectile dysfunction either a placebo or a daily dose of maca for 12 weeks. They found that whilst both groups reported improvement, the maca group reported a much greater improvement than the placebo group.

Other research conducted by British scientists set out to monitor the energy and sexual drive of cyclists. They timed how long it took the group to cycle 40km, and then asked them to fill in a sexual desire survey. After this initial base reading, they gave half the group a daily dose of maca and the other half a placebo. After 2 weeks the cyclists were asked to cycle 40km again followed by another survey. They found that the group given maca completed the 40km faster than their original time, and reported an improved sexual drive – suggesting that maca does act as an aphrodisiac.

Lastly, the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston conducted their own research. They split a group of 20 patients suffering from a lack of sexual drive due to SSRI medication into three groups. They gave one group a placebo, the other a small dose of maca and the third a large dose of maca. They found that compared to the placebo group, both maca groups reported an increased sex drive, whilst the high dosage group also reported an improvement to sexual function.

The research into the aphrodisiac qualities of maca are still something that are being investigated - as the notion is relatively new to the western world. However, current findings definitely suggest that maca does, in some way, improve the sexual desire and functions of those who use it for a prolonged period of time.
