women. For this reason it is used commonly by couples trying to conceive. To date

anecdotal evidence suggests that somewhere around fifty percent of couples trying
the treatment conceive after 1 year. That makes Maca a great potential alternative
to expensive and invasive fertility treatments.

Maca powder regularly during menopause often report a decrease in the symptoms
associated with it.

that it increases neural activity in the brain. On a related note, Maca also helps
increase the circulation of blood. Anemia has bee reduced with regular Maca use. In
