Does maca improve fertility?
🌻 Maca, also known as Peruvian ginseng, is an edible plant native to South America. In North America, maca root is sold dried and ground into powder or supplement form.
🌻 Maca is most known as an aphrodisiac and it may have a beneficial effect on libido. However, there is no scientific evidence to support claims that maca improves fertility.
🌻 Maca powder is rich in protein, fibre, calcium and potassium. It contains trace elements of iron, iodine, copper, manganese, and zinc, as well as vitamins B1, B2, C, and D.
