Herb of the Week: Maca

Maca root

We hear people saying some foods may increase your libido. We always wonder if it’s true or just another myth.

Never heard about peanuts? It’s actually true for men.

Studies indicate that nuts, particularly peanuts may raise testosterone better than other foods. Almonds may do the same trick as well.

How about foods to spark sex drive for women? Basil, avocados and asparagus may increase female libido levels, boosting your sexual stamina.

How about a root that may increase both female and male libido levels? We are talking about Maca.

Maca root is originally from the Andes Mountains of Peru and is a vegetable related to radishes and turnips. The “weird looking” maca contains high levels of protein, fat and minerals and it’s eaten baked, dried or mixed with vegetables. Several Peruvian dishes will have maca root in their recipes.

Native people in the Andes of Peru have been eating maca for over 2000 years. The root is believed to increase sex drive and improve fertility, increasing semen volume and sperm counts.

Studies have proved that maca can really increase libido in both men and women. Some other studies have showed that maca root may maintain a healthy prostate and reduce stress levels as well.

If you are looking for a natural sex enhancer, take a look at maca root. It may be a safe and natural solution to improve your sex life.
