BIO Black Maca Root Powder
Maca is known as the superfood of the South American Inca and it has been used for over 2000 years to promote physical and mental vitality in humans and animals.
It is a good source of healthy carbohydrates, it has a low-fat content, and it contains a lot of fiber in addition to the many vitamins and minerals.
Black Maca is also known as “men’s Maca” because of its positive effects in increasing potency among men. It has seen a rise in popularity recently because of its impact on memory, energy and mood, bone health, and sperm count.
A 2009 study from the Peruvian University found that black Maca was the best option of the three species of root for increased sperm production as well as libido. A more recent study from 2013 reported similar findings as well.
Besides stimulating male potency and vigor, there are other advantages to consuming black Maca as well:
- Better athletic performance and increased strength and stamina
- Improved memory skills and focus
- Greater bone density
Black Maca is thought to have a sweeter flavor than yellow Maca, though not as much as red Maca.
Maca has been shown to:
increase fertility, improve muscle growth, alleviate some of the symptoms of menopause, raise energy levels, improve prostate health, build bone density, ease symptoms of depression, enhance libido, stabilize hormone levels
Maca powder can even help with stress management. The compounds within the root give the body what it needs to handle daily stressors better and lower cortisol levels, which can exacerbate the effects of aging.
Consume 5-10g daily. Do not exceed recommended dosage and consult your doctor or physician before consuming if you are pregnant.
Maca in powder form is very easy to incorporate into your diet in several different ways. Try mixing it in drinks, like hot beverages like lattes and hot chocolate, add it to smoothies, hot or cold cereals, granola, overnight oats, bars, chia seed pudding or even baked goods.
