This Maca is super amazing by the way. This powerful 10:1 extract Really works, and has the power and potency to actually deliver enough of what you need compared to raw powder where you need MUCH more comparitively to get the same results. I personally use it regularly, it's one of my favorite herbs! It increases get go, "oomph" (yang jing type feeling), hormonal enhancer and libido. You're going to LOVE it!!! It is super amazing for both men and women as described below.

The Herbs most commonly used by Taoists for Women's Hormonal Health are all contained in the Cleanse Herbal Tea Formula, and are a powerful and effective combination.
However, if you're asking about the #1 Herb for Hormonal Health, that actually works just as well for men as women, I have to recommend one that the Ancient Taoists didn't know about, because it come from South America.
This herb is often sold as a Superfood, and there's a good chance you've tried it before.
It's commonly used to:
+ Boost Libido (Sexual Desire) in Men and Women
+ Increase Energy
+Increase Stamina and Endurance
+ Reduce Anxiety, Stress and Depression
+ Reduce Menstrual Symptoms
+ Enhance Memory, Clarity and Focus
+ Improve Thyroid Function
The amounts that most people consume are not enoughto produce significant amounts of any of these kind of effects.
In fact, to create the potent Hormone Balancing and thereby Youthening effects that most people want, you need to consume about 2-3 TABLESPOONS of powder, which is not very palatable or convenient.
What Herb am I referring to?
Now, here's the good news:
You can now have all the potent effects of a full dose of Maca (about 30g) in as little as a teapsoon (3g)
How is this possible?
The new Lion Heart Herbs:
Maca 10:1 Extract powder
I've been personally having this one for a while now, and I find it:
1 Surprisingly Delicious. It has a Caramel like Flavour that I find goes really well added to Strength. or Digest blend
2 Incredibly Powerful! When I'm 'on' it, it feels like I'm running on Rocket Fuel.
And no, I don't mean the jittery, coffee like buzz based in stress chemicals that most people mistake for energy.
I mean the pure, Dopamine fueled FIRE that fills you with PASSION and MOTIVATION.
As with the Tongkat Ali , you can have it on it's own, but I would recommend to add it to augment a more well rounded Yang Jing Formula, like Strength.
And also, ideally, to prevent 'overheating' and burning out, I would complement it with the Rejuvenate Blend, which is Yin Jing.
That combination, Yin and Yang, with Tongkat Ali added to Strength in the morning, followed by Rejuvenate at any point later in the day, is really a fantastic combination, and really just about as good as it gets for a Testosterone Boosting Herbal Strategy.
More about MACA
Find yourself depending on coffee for a boost in the morning? Why not try maca instead? Maca is a root from Peru; it's a tuber, like a potato, and offers an amazing energy boost for those with low energy. Maca however, unlike coffee, offers energy in a non-caffeinated way that supports the body.
Maca is a nutritionally dense super-food that contains high amounts of minerals, vitamins, enzymes and all of the essential amino acids. Maca root is rich in B-vitamins, which are the energy vitamins, and maca is a vegetarian source of B-12. To boot, maca has high levels of bioavailable calcium and magnesium and is great for remineralization.
Maca root helps balance our hormones and due to an over abundance of environmental estrogens, most people's hormones are a bit out of whack. Maca stimulates and nourishes the hypothalamus and pituitary glands which are the "master glands" of the body. These glands actually regulate the other glands, so when in balance they can bring balance to the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands.
Instead of providing hormones to the body, maca works as an adaptogen which means that it responds to different bodies' needs individually. If you're producing too much of a particular hormone, maca will regulate the production downward. However, if you're producing too little, it'll regulate the production upward.
Hormones regulate many things including mood, growth, sexual development, and tissue function. Hormones also play a role in many diseases, like cancer and depression.
Maca root has been shown to be beneficial for all sorts of hormonal problems including PMS, menopause, and hot flashes. Maca's also a fertility enhancer and is best known for improving libido and sexual function, especially in men. For this reason, it's earned the nickname "nature's Viagra."
Enjoy the Benefits of Maca as Food
Maca has a light, nutty flavor and some easy, delicious ways to consume maca powder as a food are to: Stir a teaspoon of maca in a bowl of vegetable and lentil soup before serving; sea salt and maca root are a wonderful soup flavoring. Add a teaspoon to any herbal tea. Pour maca powder over organic, non-microwaved popcorn and flavor with coconut oil and sea salt. If you're not watching your sugar intake, mix a bit of maca powder with enough grade B maple syrup or honey to produce a wet paste, and enjoy with a spoon. It's a delicious dessert-like treat, and it's great on bananas too. If you're one who "needs" a sweet fix, this is delicious and healthy way to do it.
It's recommended to start with a 1/2 teaspoon a day, and work up to a teaspoon or two a day over the course of a few weeks. If you're taking it daily, it's best to take a day off each week.
Maca is a food staple in Peru and there are no known effects of toxicity. However, occasionally some people experience adverse effects when they start taking maca, and these symptoms may actually be detoxification symptoms. This is because when a body more accustomed to consuming processed and cooked foods starts taking in such a nutritionally dense supplement, the body will absorb the superior nutrients it needs and "throw off" the old junk it doesn't need for elimination. If this happens, you might feel badly but it generally lasts just a few days. You may also want to consider doing colon and liver cleansing before or while taking maca to quickly remove some of the waste your body is trying to eliminate. Doing so will help with many adverse symptoms.
According to ancient and modern Peruvian herbal medicine it is used for anemia, menstrual disorders, menopausal symptoms, mental clarity, tuberculosis, stomach cancer, energy, stamina and endurance, enhancing memory, reducing stress, relieving migraine headaches, and to improve general immune function. It is also used as a laxative, an aphrodisiac, to correct impotence and erectile dysfunction, enhance fertility, natural hormone replacement, and as a natural alternative to anabolic steroids.
