Maca Benefits – Welcome
Maca And It’s Benefits
Hello and welcome to Maca Benefits.
Maca is an amazing health giving plant found in Peru and Bolivia in an incredibly small altitude band. This if course means that it is somewhat rare and can be a little difficult and sometimes expensive to get hold of.
Most of the “good stuff” comes from the root of the plant, that big onion / beetroot / raddish like thing underneath the leaves. This part of the plant grows in the soil in a very simlar fashion to the raddish of which it is a family member as it happens. This is a little strange as Maca is sweet and it smells, and tastes, a little like caramel or butterscotch although not as strongly.
However…the health benefits it gives makes it a very worthwhile addition to your daily supplement intake, particularly in a number of specific situations.
Maca Can Help Both Men and Women
For example this amazing root is known to eliviate the symptoms of the female menopause significantly. Also, men in the Andes have long used it as a “herbal viagra” to promote sexual health, which it does very effectively in a number of areas – but, more on all this in other articles on the site.
Today Maca is relatively widely available, but as with all herbs and supplements you have to be very careful where you shop. Even some of the major high street health shops sell product that is not necessarly of the highest quality. You should make sure you only use the best quality plant extract supplements.
