Lepidium meyenii [Maca], grows in the central Andes of Peru at altitudes between 4000 and 4500 m and it has been proved to be effective in improving sexual desire in men, and sexual behavior in male rats and mice. Though studies show increased sexual desire maca failed to increase any of the hormones. Maca has been used lately in some testosterone boosters and is marketed as such but studies do not support these claims. There are three varieties of maca [black, red, and yellow] and black maca was the only on showing significant biological effects. Black maca may improves learning and memory.
