Maca is a hardy plant that grows at high altitudes in the Andean highlands of Peru. Related to the turnip, it has been used as a food and medicine by indigenous South Americans for more than 2000 years. Maca is a rich source of the essential minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron; it is also high in protein and amino acids. These are all beneficial for the wellbeing of women of all ages.

Maca has been used successfully by the native people of Peru for hormonal imbalances, menstrual irregularities, fertility, and menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes, vaginal dryness, loss of energy, libido, and depression.

Many women use maca root supplements to help combat infertility as well. While there are few statistics available on the effectiveness of the treatment, the Australian magazine “Good Medicine” states that laboratory studies of rats have found that they had improved fertility after eating maca.

Maca is also considered effective in relieving menstrual symptoms. Since many of these symptoms seem to be directly related to the body’s inability to fully absorb the vitamins and minerals it needs, maca root’s antioxidant properties and hormone-balancing qualities are a good way to counteract that.

Possible Side Effects
Maca should not be consumed near bed time since it could cause insomnia.
