Healthy Sexual Activity
Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is grown at high elevations in the Andes region of central Peru. It has been traditionally used for centuries as a food source and as a general energy tonic. More recent scientific data suggest that "gelatinized" Maca may help to support healthy sexual activity and fertility for men. clinical data indicate that Maca does not exert a direct effect on endocrine function.
Gelatinization is a completely vegetarian process that removes starch from Maca to yield a more concentrated product. Gelatinization does not refer to "gelatin", and no animal derived ingredients are incorporated into this process.
