The Root of This Plant May be Effective in Increasing Your Sexual Function
The root of this plant may be effective in increasing your sexual function.
Recent clinical trials have suggested that the root of this plant has some significant effects on sexual function.
Maca ( Lepidium meyenii) is an Andean plant that belongs to the brassica family. It has been used for centuries in the Andes to enhance fertility and sexual drive, both in humans and in animals.
Maca may be effective for patients with erectile dysfunction and postmenopausal women after 12 weeks or 6 weeks of use. However, conducted trials were too limited to draw firm conclusions.
Clinical trials have also suggested that maca increases sperm count and mobility, as well as improves sexual function in humans, but the data is insufficient to determine the clinical effectiveness that maca might have.
The results of the systematic review provide limited evidence for the effectiveness of maca in the improvement of sexual function. However, more rigorous studies have been warranted.
