Mens Health: Red Maca, the superfood that helps shrink the prostate

Maca is a nutrient dense plant that grows in the harsh conditions of the Andes Mountains in Peru. It can be purchased in powdered form and is great in smoothies!!!

I wrote a well received article on Maca, and its benefits to women over 40, I just wanted to touch upon the great benefits of maca for men's health.

From overseas studies, maca has been shown to help in shrinking the prostate in experiments with laboratory rats. There are extensive testimonies from men in the USA about red maca's benefits for prostate health, but US studies are lacking, you know how that works, the medical establishment can't profit from natural remedies and cures. That's cool, but I can profit my health by using them……..

There are basically three types of maca; yellow maca, red maca, and black maca. They all have amazing health and healing properties, and I use yellow maca quite a bit as well,  but the studies show only the red maca has chemical properties that assist in helping shrink the prostate.

I simply love Maca!!! It gives such a smooth feeling of well being and a natural elevation of energy, although not "jerky" like with coffee and caffeine but very natural, it seems to help me with my with sleep.

I can't say enough about Maca. If you never heard of Maca, if might be worth 30 minutes of your life to research this, since you are on the web.

I wrote a full length article about maca, with a list of my favorite online stores to purchase, and that article can be found here

A thorough scientific research paper for the more inquisitive and technical amongst us can be found at the link below:
Red maca (Lepidium meyenii) reduced prostate size in rats (Universi dad Peruana Caye tano Heredia, Lima, Peru)

As with everything else, FAKE MACA seems to be coming in from China….sigh. I'll update article as i get more info

As for coffee drinks,… I don't do well with coffee, but I do great with the chicory-coffee blend called 'New Orleans Blend',… 2/3 boiling brew, to 1/3 cold whole unhomogenized milk(raw or pasteurized),… and it's awesome!  Also, Maca powder in boiling water for some of the water, then either cold water or cold milk as above to acceptable temperature/balance.

People should consume more natural foods. In the case of maca, which is a super food, its nutrients are very good for health.
