PRODUCT INFORMATION

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a plant native to Peru and a member of the family Brassicaceae which also includes cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli and cauliflower (1, 2).

Maca Benefits

  • Supports overall mood (ref)(ref)*
  • Supports reproductive health (ref)*

 Maca Mode of Action

Maca is native to Peru and been used as a folk treatment there for 1300-2000 years. Due to its newly- circulated promotion, China and Tibet have begun cultivating it and the largest area of cultivation is now Lijiang, China (1).

Maca root is the widely used part of the plant, and the root can be black, red, pink or yellow. Yellow maca is the most common color accounting for 47.8% of the maca available. Maca has 13 variants. Although not related to Ginseng, it is sometimes called the “Peruvian Ginseng” (3).

Maca’s effects on mood appear to be better with red maca which contains a large amount of GABA, although mood boosting effects have been noted with black maca (4).

Maca’s benefits relating to fertility and sexual health do not appear to alter hormone levels themselves but promote sexual function independent of hormone modulation in both males and females (6, 7).

Pure Nootropics’ Maca provides 500 mg of Lepidium meyenii Root per 1 capsule. Suggested use for adults is 1 capsule by mouth daily, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
