Maca Plant – Viable Alternative For Viagra

maca plantSexual desire is usually at the forefront of people’s minds, particularly when they are with someone in a bedroom and all the lights are out.

But what happens when the desire isn’t there and the beginning of performance anxiety sets in?

For a while the most well-known alternative was Viagra, but now the maca plant is another alternative slowly climbing up the ranks.

Also known as Lepidium meyenii, it is cultivated in Peru in the Andes Mountains. It is part of the radish family and has been used medicinally in Peru for a while.

It is believed that it was used by the Incas as being used to enhance fertility not only in people, but in livestock as well and was also used to increase energy and stamina. The key is the maca root. It contains about 60% carbohydrates, various amino acids and minerals like calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and zinc.

Maca can help increase the sex drive of both male and female and even help with menopause. The reason maca works so well is because it helps to regulate the hormones within the human body. The ingredients in the root help the body to naturally balance itself.

Balancing the hormones of the body is probably the reason why the maca root is so helpful in fighting various issues having to do with sexual drive.

When our body naturally produce hormones in the right way, our bodies are able to function better; however, when our hormones are off it can affect us in a variety of ways, including fatigue in both men and women and, in men, erectile dysfunction and impotence.

Maca can be bought in different forms. It can be in capsule or various types of powders and added to a beverage. In Peru, maca is used when making various foods such as cookies. So if you want to get the full benefits of maca you will have to be, at the very least, within the range of how much the Peruvians take on a daily basis.

Although in capsule form, the amount of milligrams depending on who you buy it from ranges, you should be taking around 1,800 to 2,250 milligrams per day.

Unlike Viagra, whose side effects include headaches, changes in the perception of colors, erections that last so long they cause pain and even heart attacks, maca has no known side effects at this time.

So, if you are looking for a safer, more natural alternative to Viagra, maca root is definitely a viable option.
