Maca is an herbaceous biennial plant native to Peru. It is often used as a natural remedy for male patients with low sperm count (oligospermia). Maca root powder has many benefits to treat this sperm pathology because it diminishes the levels of oxidative stress, and contains great amounts of potassium and folic acid, which slows down the rate of sperm cell aging. Maca can be taken in the form of powder, as a hot infusion, or in capsules.
