Maca belongs to the same group of vegetables as broccoli and is historically grown in Peru and other areas of South America.
Interestingly, Maca is highly effective at restricting growth of the prostate gland, preventing cancer. Equally, evidence shows it can shield against brain damage and improve cognitive ability.
A powerful aphrodisiac, Maca balances hormone levels, leading to an increase in sperm production without increasing testosterone in men. Sterols contained in the plant also block the production of oestrogen.
Popular ways to naturally consume maca:
- Cooking and baking
