Maca for Men | The Viagra Alternative

Are you looking for a natural solution to treat erectile dysfunction and low libido? Perhaps you’re looking to balance your hormones or increase testosterone production without medication?

Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group that increases sperm production and stimulates sex drive.

It also helps maintain muscle mass and healthy bone density. With low libido and sexual dysfunction, we often see low testosterone blood levels in both men and women.

Perhaps you’ve been thinking about using Sildenafil, also known as Viagra, but may be hesitating due to the common side effects such as pain, nausea, upset stomach and headaches to name a few.

If you’d rather turn to a more natural option, this article is for you.

Let me introduce you to Mother Nature’s Viagra – one of the most incredible superfoods on the planet, Lepidium meyenii.

It is better known as Maca and has been used for thousands of years.The Natural Viagra Alternative by Dr. Sara Celik

Maca is a root vegetable that looks like a radish. It is loaded with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and amino acids. Besides providing an incredible amount of energy, strength, and endurance, many of my patients count on this Peruvian nutritional gem to enhance their sex life.

Maca is one of the highest altitude foods found in the world. I find it interesting that Mother Nature decided to cultivate this sexual treasure 14,000 feet high.

Could it be she feared men might overuse Maca if it was easily grown in their backyard?

All joking aside, Maca is a powerful male sexual enhancer and has been touted as one of the best natural alternatives to Viagra.

It’s free of side-effects, affordable, and just one teaspoon of this potent powder added to a morning smoothie can make a difference. If you’re not a smoothie drinker, Maca is available in capsules as well.

The recommended daily dose of Maca ranges from 500mg – 4000mg, so it is a good idea to ask your Naturopathic Doctor for appropriate dosing based on your individual needs. It is also imperative to take Maca on a cycle. My recommendation to my patients is to take one week off every month.

If you don’t have low libido or erectile dysfunction, Maca may still be of benefit to you.

Check out these exciting Maca benefits that have been reported by men:

  1. Lowered cholesterol
  2. Healthier nervous system
  3. Balanced endocrine system
  4. Reduced size of prostate (when enlarged)
  5. Improved mood
  6. Increased energy
  7. Healthier adrenal glands and lowered cortisol
  8. Decreased anxiety
  9. Stronger immune system
  10. Better workouts at the gym

In case you are still unsure about the value of Mother Nature’s Maca, you should know that during Spanish colonization, Maca was used as currency and carried greater value than gold!

Now that’s a root vegetable to celebrate!
