Maca is an adaptogenic plant, which means it gives your body the ability to adapt to or resist what's going on in and around it, like anxiety, stress, and depression.
Also known as Peruvian ginseng, maca is grown in the Andes mountains and has historically been used by the Incas. Most medicine is made from its root, which can be red, black, white, or yellow and resembles a radish or turnip. Maca was traditionally taken as an aphrodisiac. It is now also used to aid in men's' virality and libido.
