Limited clinical trials have been conducted or are underway on maca root use in female and male sexual dysfunction, libido, infertility, impotence and other conditions though as with most traditional herbs, the potential benefits are based on long observed results, over extended periods of time.

Maca is a root-like vegetable shaped very much like a turnip (to which it is related) that grows in altitudes above 10,000 feet in the high Andes of Peru. For more than two millennia, native Peruvians have traditionally used maca root as food and medicine to promote endurance and improve energy, vitality, sexual virility and fertility. In limited studies indicate men who use maca root have been shown to have an increase in libido and healthy sperm.

Benefits of Natural Maca Root and Sexual Dysfunction

As is the case for most herbs found in nature, it is not known exactly why maca does what it does. Maca seems to have the ability to influence key hormones and functions of reproduction without containing hormones suggesting it may help with hormones needing balance. 

Scientists are studying the biochemistry behind the claims of maca root enhancing sexual function and stamina. In one study, researchers found that maca root increased seminal volume, sperm count, and sperm motility. In another, the effects of maca were compared with placebo men who took maca reported an improvement in sexual desire.

A Massachusetts General Hospital 2008 study also found improved sexual dysfunction in depressed men and women. In a 2009 study, investigators in the department of urology at Morgagni-Pierantoni Hospital conducted a double-blind trial and the authors concluded that maca supplements provide a small but significant effect on sexual health in men with mild erectile dysfunction.
