Maca has a reputation as a powerful strength and stamina enhancer, as well as a libido-enhancing food-herb, that stretches back into prehistory. Like goji berries and ginseng, maca is a powerful adaptogen, which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body's systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, endocrine system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). As an adaptogen, maca can provide more energy if it is needed, but will not overstimulate the body. Adaptogens also boost immunity and increase the body's overall vitality by 10-15% according to most studies. Rather than addressing a specific symptom, adaptogens are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole body to diverse and challenging situations and stress.
Today, maca’s legendary traditional properties are gradually being confirmed by modern scientific studies.
· Acts as an adaptogen by restoring the body’s homeostasis when undergoing stress

Red maca has the same nutritional profile and all of the same beneficial properties as regular (white, yellow or black) maca, but it appears to possess additional properties of its own that may be more beneficial to men’s health.
As a result of recent scientific studies, red maca has been proposed to have important implications in the treatment of prostate diseases, including prostate cancer. Phytochemical analyses showed red maca to have greater amounts of the compounds responsible for antioxidant and antitumor activity than other types of maca.*
