Maca is a cruciferous root vegetable that grows in the mountains of South America
Maca for Men? There's a lot of hype surrounding this supplement, and a lot of extraordinary claims about what it can do.
I've seen it touted as a cure for stomach cancer, HIV, and leukemia for example.
While I don't buy into most of the health claims, I do believe it does three things rather well.
In one study male mice were feed maca root extract. The mice given maca mounted female mice three times as often as the controls who were given no maca.
It also reduced by half the amount of time it took for these mice to achieve another erection.
In a human study, men between the ages of 21 and 56 years received 3 grams of maca over a 12 week period.
The vast majority experienced a strong increase in sexual desire, although there were no changes in testosterone or other hormone levels.
There are very few reported maca side effects.
The powder is becoming popular as a health food, and many people use it in high volume in cooking, baking, and smoothies.
It appears that maca root is very safe.
In the human study discussed above the dosage was 3 grams.
I've found that dose to be just about perfect.

I've had some very good experiences with maca, but there is a down side. I've found I build up a tolerance to this supplement very quickly.
My solution to this problem is, I don't use it very often.
About once week, I'll take a 3 cap dose for a nice boost.
Anymore than that and the benefits of maca root will diminish, and the supplement will stop working.
