Hi Chad, I’ve been taking your product for over a year, and I have noticed a huge difference. I bought a 12 month supply in January. It’s a great product. Thanks ~ Happy Man Greens Customer
Some supplements work immediately – caffeine, any mental stimulant – while others work, but continue to have increasing benefits the longer you continue to take them, Maca is one such supplement, and eight weeks is ‘the magic amount of time’ you need to consume it to see its full benefits.
When you do hit that 8-week mark the benefits remain constant. Getting to that 8-week mark seems to be the trigger to the most powerful benefits of Maca.
So what are the benefits of supplementing with Maca (which we include in it’s full, daily dose in Man Greens)?
Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t increased testosterone levels.
When you hear of a superfood – of which maca certainly is – increasing libido, you immediately think it does so through testosterone, being that low testosterone is so closely linked to low libido.
But, Maca has no effect on testosterone, though it can lower stress and stress hormones, like cortisol.
If you’re looking for a pure libido boost, take maca.
As a caveat, libido shouldn’t be confined to sex. Drive, sex drive, libido, they’re all the same thing. They’re a form of energy. You can use that energy for sex or for achievement.
Ambition was always linked to sex drive through the term virility.
Virility, (in a man) the quality of having strength, energy, and a strong sex drive; manliness.
So while testosterone levels are on the decline in men, which would lead us to think that sex drive is as well, focus on increasing your sex drive regardless because of the myriad of other benefits outside of just getting it on with your lady.
Napoleon Hill, in Think and Grow Rich, talked extensively about ‘sexual transmutation’, or using sexual energy to achieve one’s grand goals.
This is why sex drive should be taken seriously by all men, and especially by all ambitious men (which I’m sure you’re one of us).
But there’s more…
Man Greens, Testosterone, And Libido
When you take Man Greens you get a full, daily dose of high-quality maca. But you get more than just maca.
You get a full dose of horny goat weed as well.
Aside from it’s cheesy name, horny goat weed is actually quite powerful when it comes to sex drive.
Horny Goat Weed is powerful for sex drive primarily because of a single compound within HGW.
That ingredient is called icariin. Icariin inhibits the PDE-5 enzyme, which is also what viagra and Cialis do with synthetic agents, while also increasing nitric oxide, which helps improve blood flow. One study on horny goat weed was used to overturn a patent made by the Viagra company stating that their formula was the only source of icariin in the world.
On top if this, other studies have shown that icariin has mimetic properties, and is able to mimic testosterone in the testes.
The benefits of Horny Goat Weed, however, don’t stop with libido and testosterone. Goat Weed also has a very healthy dose of 37 different flavonoids while also being a very strong antioxidant.
Of course, Man Greens also has ashwagandha, which lowers cortisol in men, and boosts testosterone. Turmeric, which lowers cortisol, has been shown to even fight cancer and boost testosterone.
And forskolin. Forskolin increases cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) levels. cAMP is a messenger that transports biological signals between cells and hormones. Thus, increasing cAMP levels should increase the sensitivity, amount, and activity of hormones in the body, with one study showing an increase of 33% in obese men.
Simply put, if you’re a man, and especially if you’re an ambitious man, you want to take a full, daily scoop of Man Greens every single morning.
