  • Adaptogens are by definition substances that raise the physical body's state of resistance to diseases through physiological and emotional health improvements
  • Hormonal regulation is responsible for sensations related to sexual arousal, physical activity and mental-emotional states.
    Maca root has also been called an adaptogen
  • One of these effects is the enhancement of endocrine function, which includes all of the glands, and the hormones they secrete, that exist in the body and that control such conditions as fertility, sexual function, digestion, brain and nervous system physiology, and energy levels
  • Since before the ancient Incans, maca has always been used in Peru
  • It is so full of wonderful nutrition, that once you start eating it, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner!
