Benefits of Maca For Women’s Health

Maca root is so much more than just a delicious addition to your smoothies. In fact, for a woman’s cycle, the maca root is one of the best superfoods you can add to your daily diet to promote healthy living. There is a very good reason why the people of the Andes have been using the maca root for hundreds of years.

A hormone balancer for women

The main remedial use of maca was as a hormone balancer for women. That means so many things, depending on which part of the life cycle you happen to be in. For younger women who are experiencing irregularity with periods, maca can balance the hormones to encourage regularity. On the other hand, for those who are experiencing menopause, maca root may help manage those frustrating symptoms such as hot flushes, mood swings and night sweats.

In fact, these symptoms also occur for women who are experiencing PMS rather than menopause. The imbalance of hormones can be the reason for these symptoms, and maca is great at bringing those back into harmony!


For a long time our ancestors have known that maca encourages fertility in women. It is only recently that science has discovered that ingesting maca increases the production of the luteinzing hormone in the pituitary gland, encouraging the fertility of women in particular.

Improves sexual function and is an aphrodisiac

Ah, maybe this also has something to do with why maca encourages fertility. Maca can play a role in dealing with the kinds of things that come in the way of a woman having a healthy sex life. Whether it is the lack of a desire for sex, a hormonal imbalance or because of the effect of other pharmaceutical medication, maca root comes as a real “spice” for life in the bedroom. Our Lovers Bars (which contain maca) really are for lovers!

Good mood and good energy

Because of its potential to really balance the hormones, maca encourages an overall good mood and efficient use of energy. It may help to stabilize the “up-and-down-ness” of a woman’s cycle for a healthier and more productive life. Our Better Than Coffee With Maca product is a far healthier way to get the energy you need to be a productive woman than drinking a coffee.

On the other hand, if you’re a chocolate lover, than you can get maca into your body with our Cacao Elixir. In any case, it’s easy and delicious to get this magical root into your body with Medicinal Superfoods Products!
