Maca is the common name for Lepidium meyenii, a plant in the Brassicaceae family. ‘Maca root’ refers to the root of the plant, which resembles a turnip. It is divided into categories based on the color of the root, which can be red, black, pink or yellow and has historically been grown in Peru. As a supplement, it tends to be turned into a dried powder which is then mixed into smoothies and other beverages.
It has traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac and research suggests that it can notably increase libido. It may also reduce the symptoms of menopause, particularly those related to mood.
