What is Maca?
Maca by HSN Essentials is a nutritional supplement that naturally increases the body's resistance to the adverse influences of physical and emotional stress.
Maca is a tuber grown on the high Andean plateau. It is considered to be a natural energizer, with a great tonic effect that improves physical performance in general.
What are the properties of Maca?
It belongs to the group of the adaptogenic plants, those that are capable of normalising or balancing the energetic responses of the body and helping you withstand stressful situations that would normally affect your performance negatively. This increases the capacity of our body to 'adapt' to the environmental factors (stress, food, toxins...).
Maca helps boost the immune system, regulating hormonal balance and increasing brain capacity, positively affecting the general state of the organism.
Above all, Maca is deemed to be one of the best aphrodisiac plants for both men and women. In fact, Maca is also known as the Ginseng of the Andes and Vegetable Viagra and is much used to treat sterility and sexual and reproductive disorders.
Benefits of Maca
Those people who suffer from stress, due to factors such as work, burdens and responsibilities, or even physical exercise, can benefit from reducing the effects of cortisol. This hormone is responsible for increasing our stimulatory response according to the conditions of the environment or because we detect a situation of alarm. In this sense, it is possible to be secreting larger amounts due to the causes previously mentioned, leading to a situation where our adrenal system will be in continuous operation, with the health risk that this involves, physiologically and especially psychologically. It can lead to depressive symptoms, anxiety, irritability, hypertension... Maca can help to solve this situation and thanks to its properties, face these situations, producing a positive effect on our health and performance.
One of the most outstanding effects that it has is as an invigorating, energetic, and aphrodisiac, raising sexual desire in both men and women. Even certain studies (1) reflect that it can have a positive action for people with sexual dysfunction problems.
In relation to sports world, the energy properties along with the sexual appetite, were evidenced in a study (2) that showed the positive results of supplementation in athletes, where both the physical performance in the practice of sports and sexual aspects, were satisfactory.
