Maca is a Peruvian plant grown in the Andes mountains that is a common ingredient in Peruvian cooking. Aside from its culinary uses, Maca has many health benefits and is commonly used to boost fertility and libido and balance hormones by controlling the functions of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland.
As an adaptogen, Maca can help the body adapt and cope with stress and regulate the body’s stress response system which may help lower cortisol levels as well. Maca root can especially be helpful to women with PCOS who are also entering peri-menopause. It has been shown to balance FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and estradiol. This helps reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, anxiety, and depression, as well as sexual dysfunction.
