All right HYLETE, you need Maca for your mojo. Why is Maca so important? Well because it is a hormone balancer. It is what is known as an endocrine adaptogen. What it basically does is it helps balance out our sex drive and balances out our libido, and it's been proven to do so with a lot of science, but basically how it works is by working on the hypothalamus and the pituitary. Now how that works in your body, the hypothalamus is like the CEO of body, and and the pituitary is like the director of operations. The pituitary takes orders from the hypothalamus so if the hypothalamus is not functioning right or is unbalanced the pituitary doesn't get the right message, and if the pituitary isn't focused and able to do its job then it doesn't delegate the right message to the rest of the body so that balance is extremely important.

Now the 2009 study in Andrologia took a look at 50 subjects that were given Maca over a 12-week period of time. They found after just 12 weeks that they improved their satisfaction scores in libido dramatically after just using a small amount of Maca, so that's it HYLETE. Get your hands on some Maca and put it in your coffee in the morning.
