If we could only take one herbal remedy to improve our libido what would it be: horny goat weed, ginseng, tribulus terrestris, or maybe something else? How about maca?
Maca root might be a good choice and there’s a reason why it’s found in so many leading male enhancement supplements: It’s full of vitamins and minerals and widely believed to help keep sexual functioning in top working order. It not only promotes a healthier sex-drive, but it can help in many other ways as well.
What is it?
Maca is a Peruvian plant with a root known for its medicinal properties. The root can be eaten as a vegetable and prepared in a variety of ways. It’s also powdered for use in teas, juice drinks, and dietary supplements.

Use and Results
For this review I’m going to use maca root powder by BulkSupplements.com. This particular brand comes in a couple of sizes and I picked the 100 gram (3.53oz) package for this assessment.
If taking ½ teaspoon per day, this supply should easily last two months. The price of around $18 is not bad considering how many servings you get.
AS A TEA. I decided to add my maca powder to a cup of hot water and drink it as a tea. Contrary to the directions on the package recommending that it be taken three times per day, I only used one ½ teaspoon per day. The powder dissolves easily in a couple minutes and then it’s ready to consume.
You can also add it to blended fruit or vegetable juice for a healthy drink.
TASTE. Most say that maca tastes like butterscotch, but it actually tastes more like roasted marshmallows! The flavor isn’t strong but it could be an acquired taste for some. Depending on what you mix it with, you might not even notice it.
FIRST NOTICEABLE RESULT. After taking maca for several days the first thing that I noticed was that I became more regular. Having a bowel movement every day is unusual for me and I attribute my new regularity to the high percentage of fiber within maca.
SECOND NOTICEABLE RESULT. Like most supplements I’ve reviewed, it can be difficult to tell if this product is helping in any way. This is especially true when you already have a healthy sex life and your sex organs work as they should. Nevertheless, I always pay close attention to what’s going on with my body and try to identify the things that seem the least bit abnormal. In my case, I feel that my sex-drive did improve.
There were several times when I felt horny even after having sex twice in one day. Normally, I’m content with having sex once or twice per day but being ready to go a third time tells me that something is different. I can only attribute the boost in libido to the maca root powder as that’s the only significant change that I had made.
SIDE-EFFECTS. While taking maca I experienced no negative side-effects. No upset stomach and no headache. The only effects of this product were positive ones.
I like maca and I think that there is something to it. It really seemed to increase my sex-drive (possibly up to 50% in some instances) and I felt good while taking it.
Even though maca has an odd taste, it’s not a strong one. Drinking it as a tea proved to be soothing and enjoyable.
For those who need something to help kick their sex-drive into high gear, then I would recommend trying maca root. It’s regarded as being extremely safe and effective, and it’s economical too!A Maca Special Offer>>>
