How Maca Spices Up Your Sex Life

3 minutes to read


It's normal for men to notice a gradually decreasing sex drive as we age, but that doesn't mean we have to be happy with it--or accept it. There are lots of reasons why your sex drive may decrease as you age, including declining testosterone levels, certain medical conditions or medications, depression and other mental illnesses, and a general lack of energy.

Happily, there are things you can do to increase your sex drive, including eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and taking a supplement containing ingredients scientifically proven to increase energy and libido. Peruvian maca root is one such ingredient that's been used for thousands of years to improve strength, desire, and virility, and it's an important component of Predoxen.

Here's what the research says about maca root.

Maca Root Improves SSRI-Induced Sexual Dysfunction

A full 10 percent of Americans take antidepressants, and those known as selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, can cause sexual dysfunction in both men and women. Citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac), and sertraline (Zoloft) are all SSRIs, and they're known to reduce sex drive and cause erectile dysfunction.

A study of both men and women with SSRI-induced sexual dysfunction found that maca root is an effective treatment. The results of the study, published in the journal CNS Neuroscience & Therapeutics, found that participants taking maca each day had marked improvements on the Arizona Sexual Experience Scale (ASEX), and their libido improved significantly.

Maca Root Improves Mild Erectile Dysfunction and Sexual Wellbeing

A study of 50 men with mild erectile dysfunction found that those taking maca daily for 12 weeks reported significant improvements on both their International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5) score and their Satisfaction Profile (SAT-P) score. The study concluded that the maca group enjoyed positive effects on their erectile dysfunction and their sexual wellbeing.

Another study of men showed significant improvements in seminal volume and sperm count of ejaculation after taking maca daily for four months.

Maca Root Improves Strength, Endurance, and Sex Drive

A study of eight trained male cyclists found that 14 days of supplementation with maca extract improved cycling times and significantly improved their self-rated sexual desire score, compared to a placebo group.

In another study, men were given either maca or a placebo. The men were measured at four, eight, and 12 weeks for their self-perception of sexual desire, their Hamilton depression score, and their Hamilton anxiety score. Both maca groups showed an increase in sexual desire starting at eight weeks, and this was independent of their depression and anxiety scores.

Maca Reduces Depression

A study on mice found that maca reduced depression-related behaviors, and a study of 197 people who took maca for 12 weeks found that maca taken daily improved their mood. Other primary outcomes of the study were improvements in sexual desire, energy, and health-related quality of life score (HRQL).

Maca Increases Energy Levels

A general lack of energy can take a major toll on your libido and your performance in the sack. Maca root helps increase energy, according to a study that found maca reduces fatigue in laboratory animals. Another study on humans found that participants who took maca daily for 12 weeks had increased energy levels.

Other Beneficial Effects of Maca

A daily dose of maca benefits your health in a number of ways. In addition to reducing depression, increasing sex drive, improving erectile dysfunction, and boosting energy levels, maca has been shown through clinical research to help reduce blood pressure and blood sugar levels, increase bone density, and reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.

Predoxen is a daily supplement that contains 18 ingredients--including a therapeutic dose of maca--proven through research to improve sexual function, including a higher sex drive, improved erectile dysfunction, better stamina in bed, and increases in penis size and energy levels. Supplementing with predoxen as part of an overall healthy lifestyle can have a powerful impact on your desire and performance--and your overall quality of life.
