There are three skin pigmentation of Maca Roots; yellow, red, black.

The most well-known benefit of black maca root is its potential to increase libido. There is some scientific evidence to support this claim.

      For example, an older study from 2002 found that men who took 1.5 or 3 grams (g) of maca per day experienced increased libido compared to those who received a placebo.

     A 2015 Study {Trusted Source} found that maca root may help reduce sexual dysfunction in postmenopausal women who were taking an antidepressant.

Reducing erectile dysfunction

 Maca root could also have benefits for people with erectile dysfunction (ED). A small study in 2009 looked at the effect of consuming 2.4g of maca root per day for 12 weeks on participants' perception of their general and sexual well-being.

     The study participants were males with mild ED. Those taking maca root experienced a more significant increase in sexual well-being than those taking a placebo.

The following benefits apply to yellow and red maca also

(Important note: Red Maca is the best for hormonal balance)

 

Boosting energy and endurance

 

Some athletes and bodybuilders use maca root as a supplement to increase energy and performance. Some evidence exists to support this.

     A pilot study in 2009 found that using maca extract for 14 days improved performance for male cyclists in a 40-kilometer time trial. However, the results were not significantly different from the improvement seen in those taking a placebo. However, the same study found that maca extract improved libido in the participants who used it. However, the sample size of this study was very small, so more research is needed to confirm the results.

Increasing fertility

Another widespread use of maca root is to increase fertility, particularly in men.

   A 2016Review {Trusted Source} found some evidence that maca root may increase semen quality in both fertile and infertile men. However, more research is needed

Improving mood

Maca contains flavonoids, which are thought to improve mood and reduce anxiety. A study in 14 postmenopausal women found that maca may reduce feelings of anxiety and depression. Also, a 2015 Study {Trusted Source} found that maca could reduce symptoms of depression in Chinese postmenopausal women.

Fighting free radicals

Maca root also promotes natural antioxidants in the body, such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase.

Antioxidants help to fight off free radicals, which can damage cells in the body. Some people believe antioxidants can help prevent some health conditions, including heart disease and cancer.

Reducing menopause symptoms

Some proponents of maca root believe it may help balance levels of the hormone estrogen. During pre-menopause, the stage before a woman reaches menopause, estrogen levels fluctuate and cause a variety of symptoms.

One study found that postmenopausal women who took two daily tablets containing maca experienced reduced symptoms, such as hot flashes and night sweats. Improving learning and memory

Maca may help improve learning and memory performance. There is some evidence to suggest that maca can improve learning and memory. For example, a 2011 study found that maca could improve memory in mice.

A 2014 review of the literature suggested that maca may have benefits for learning and memory performance. Researchers suggested that it could be helpful in treating conditions that affect these processes, such as Alzheimer’s.

However, only research on animal models is currently available, so it is unclear whether maca will have the same benefits in humans.

Risks

Maca is not currently associated with any health risks in most people and is unlikely to cause any side effects in moderate doses.

However, due to its effect on hormones, people with thyroid problems should avoid taking maca. It is also better to avoid taking maca when undergoing treatments that modify hormonal levels, such as treatments for breast cancer.

Imagine if you could be satisfied and content with your purchase. That can very much be your reality with the Black Maca.
