You’ve probably already seen the hilarious memes about how masturbation on lockdown can improve your immune system.

While there is some research to support that masturbation leads to an increase in white blood cell count which helps fight off infections, this research is still in its infancy. What we do know is that orgasms increase the “feel good” hormones oxytocin and dopamine, which are stress and pain relieving hormones. 

So whether you are coupled up or single, we can all still enjoy some pleasure while on lockdown. But what should you do when lockdown has got your libido down? 

Consider giving Maca a try — the sexiest of the superherbs. Maca is a root native to Peru which has been traditionally used to enhance sex drive and fertility in both men and women. Read on to discover how Maca powder benefits your sex life. 

What is red Maca powder?

Maca comes in three varieties; black, red and yellow. Some argue that the best Maca powder is the red variety. 

Red Maca is the rarest form, and contains the highest concentration of minerals and nutrients which are responsible for its whole host of health benefits.

How does Maca powder benefit your sex life?

Maca root (Lepidium meyenii) has been used as a natural aphrodisiac for over 1,000 years. 

Maca’s sex-enhancing benefits are attributed to the glucosinolates, macamides, macaenes, and alkaloids found within the root.

Maca naturally boosts libido

In a double-blind placebo-controlled trial, Maca was clinically proven to increase levels of sexual desire. Healthy participants were given 3 grams of red Maca powder daily, and reported improvements in sexual desire at 8 and 12 weeks of treatment. 

Maca improves sperm health

Maca has been proven to be beneficial for healthy sperm. Men receiving Maca treatment over the course of 4 months were shown to have an increase in sperm production and sperm motility unrelated to hormone levels.

Maca fights against sexual dysfunction

Studies suggest that Maca may be useful for improving sperm health associated with male infertility. 

In additional studies, male patients affected by mild erectile dysfunction reported an improvement in symptoms after 12 weeks of treatment. 

Maca has also been shown to alleviate menopausal symptoms in women tied to sexual dysfunction. 

How to use Maca powder

Maca has an earthy and nutty taste which some people find appetizing. We recommend taking our 500mg Maca capsule with food and water. Alternatively, you can open the capsule and pour the powder into your breakfast smoothie or yoghurt.

What is the best Maca powder?

Maca is widely available in health stores and online. Make sure that whichever herbal supplement you select has been pre-screened for toxins and heavy metals to ensure purity and safety.

While the benefits of Maca root are many, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t monitor the quality or purity of herbal supplements. Adding impure ingredients like heavy metals to vitamins is (unfortunately) far more common than you may think.

At hundred, we keep it transparent by performing quality control checks throughout the supply chain.
