Maca has been scientifically researched for the use of increasing fertility since 1961 and has been shown to contain specific compounds called glucosinolates which can affect fertility for both men and women. These alkaloids are responsible for Maca’s ability to support hormonal balance.
Benefits of Maca:
- Supports hormonal balance

Promotes Hormonal Balance
In women, Maca helps the body to promote balanced estrogen and progesterone levels. Estrogen or progesterone levels that are high or low at the wrong time can keep a woman from becoming pregnant or keep her from carrying to term. Excess estrogen levels can cause progesterone levels to become too low, this is known as estrogen dominance. Taking Maca may help to balance the estrogen to progesterone ratio which is essential to achieving and carrying a healthy pregnancy.
In one study, Maca was given to female and male rats and it was found that the females had multiple egg follicle maturation (important for ovulation), and the males had significantly higher sperm production and motility rates.
General suggested usage is take two tablets everyday with water.. To obtain desired results, Maca needs to be taken regularly. It can be taken in one dose or throughout the day.
