Will Nature’s Way Maca Root Capsules Boost Your Libido?
So, recently while shopping at Blue Sky Nutrition, my local health supplement store, during a conversation with Justin (son of the owner), he asked me, “Hey, have you tried Maca Root?” My faced squinted indicating I had no idea what he was talking about.
Justin continued telling me about Maca roots ability to increase my stamina and make me last longer as he gestured with his hands indicating a strong penis erection.
That’s right! I said “penis erection!” I’m just being real with you.
Being a man, this sparked my interest 🙂
I responded, “Oh really!” With a big smile and head nodding, Justin said, “Oh yeahhhh!”
So I took him up on it, bought a 60 count bottle of Nature’s Way Maca Root capsules.
What Is Maca Root?
Maca, also known as Peruvian Ginseng, is the popular name for Lepidium meyenii.
Mainly grown in South America in the high mountain Andes of Peru, Maca is a cruciferous vegetable in the same family as broccoli, kale, cabbage and cauliflower.
The main edible part is the root. Thus the reason you hear it referred to as Maca ROOT.
Although I’m specifically reviewing the Maca capsules, Maca root can also be consumed in the maca root powder form.
However, many people dislike the taste of the powder even when mixing with drinks or smoothies.
Yet the black maca root powder is said to be best and purest form.
Since my initial experience is with Nature’s Way Maca Root capsules, it’s the one I will be reviewing.

Maca root is thought of as an “adaptogen.”
Adaptogen is a type of natural substance, plant or herb that naturally helps in dealing with stressors like illness, hectic schedules and demanding work environments.

Some Of the Negative Side Effects of Maca Root
- Increased heart rate
- High Blood Pressure
- Seriously Mess With Your Hormones (Read below for further insight)
- Hot Flashes
The only two side effects I experienced were insomnia and an emotional mental shift (read the next section to get more details).
How Did It Work for Me?
At first, I noticed my mood had drastically changed. I began to feel somewhat sad.
It was sort of strange. I should probably classify that feeling as, “sober.”
Everything began to feel very serious to me.
My live was becoming deeply introspective.
When my wife said or did something to me (the details, I can’t recall) it had me thinking, “That really hurt my feelings.”
I recall thinking to myself, “What! Were did that come from. Did I admit my feelings were hurt. What is happening to me…boo hoo…sniff…sniff..boo..hoo!”
LOL…This was NOT the usual me.
What in the HECK was happening to me, I thought to myself?
Am I actually acknowledging that my feelings were hurt?
My wife told me she believed it was the Maca root.
Huh? I love my wife. She always seems to know what’s going on with me better than I do myself…LOL!
So I became angry, because this Maca root stuff was suppose to make me Superman. Stamina! Virility! Machismo!
That’s what I expected.
However to my relief, through some research, I found out that Maca root affects hormones thus influencing your mental state.
Huh?! That’s a woman thing…Isn’t it?…hehehe.
Just joking!…a little bit.
Yet, as I progressed, I began to see my emotional/mental state was actually being adjusted to a healthy balance.
Less stress, calmer demeanor and greater focus.
As my emotions were being totally adjusted, my stamina and sexual function were also undergoing some positive changes.
“Positive” is a rather weak word to describe what occurred.
“BOOMING” is more like it.
My penis stayed hard for an eternity…LOL!
Come on!…I’m just being real!
While having sex with my wife, I just kept going and going and going and going….like the Energizer Bunny…LOL!
Also, when taking morning walks with the dog , I noticed a lesser amount of exertion required to walk our normal distance.
For a short time span, I stopped taking the Maca root.
I ran out of capsules never making it a priority to purchase more.
A few months past.
My stamina dropped and also my sex drive decreased….
Ughhh!!! Was I now dependent on Maca root?
Was I hooked?….An addict?….LOL!
I didn’t say I had no stamina or that my sex drive died. It just diminished.
So, for me, that indicated the Maca root had an affect on my stamina and libido.
At first, I didn’t even make the correlation.
But once I did, I ran out and got some more….hehehe.
Because I like that Superman feeling…..
So , that’s my story. It’s the real deal. No baloney!
Not everyone will or has gotten the same results.
As you have read, Nature’s Way Maca Root capsules have been convenient and effective for me.
I began with one a day for 3 days then 2 a day for a few days before moving on to 3 a day (the recommended use).
Honestly, most of the time I only took 2 a day..,One in the morning and one in the afternoon.
Do me a favor .
Look at the that pic to the right?
If you’re a man, you know you want to be just like him….Come on!…You know you do…LOL!
