Many of our customers seek out natural products because they have had negative experiences with over the counter and prescription medications.  We hear it from people suffering with allergies, menopause and erectile dysfunction (ED).

Maca root has been studied for its benefits regarding ED.  A study with 50 men with ED who were supplemented with either placebo or maca root showed significant improvement after 12 weeks.

Sometimes ED is a side effect from prescriptions for depression.  In another study, maca root or placebo was given to men with ED related to medication for depression.  Both ED symptoms and libido were significantly improved for the group getting the maca root.
