Maca Supplementation Associated With Improved Strength, Fatigue, & Sexual Function


Maca is the common name for Lepidium meyeniiand is a member of the broccoli family. It has been used for years as an aphrodisiac in traditional medicine. A new study has found that it may help improve strength, fatigue, and sexual functioning in men.





The study had 47 participants, both male and female, who were primarily college students. Half of them took 2.1 grams of maca daily for 28 days, and the other half took a placebo. The researchers conducted three tests at baseline and at the end of the study. The first test measured hand grip strength. The second and third tests were questionnaires that measured fatigue and sexual function.





Male participants in the maca group had a 72% improvement in hand grip strength compared to the males in the placebo group. They also had a 40% improvement in fatigue and a 71% improvement in sexual function compared to the males in the placebo group. Female participants in the maca group did not show significant improvements in any of the areas when compared to the females in the placebo group.





The study was conducted by researchers from Nova Southeastern University. It was published in the March, 2019 issue of the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition.
