    Maca root has a bit of hype around it, its not as potent an aphrodisiac as advertised.
    In the Andes they eat it like potatoes...Its fed to livestock etc...Basically its used as a food more than a herb.

    I dont know about the nitric oxide content, but as far as libido enhancers you may wanna
    try a "zma" supplement (zinc magnesium B6), half dose if your female because the zinc is quite high.

    Magnesium is essential for hormone balance, chocolate is known as an aphrodisiac and has the highest amount of magnesium of any food, along with phyto-compounds that increase dopamine.

    If you live in a cold climate, the winter months can really mess with our hormones (due to lack of sunlight). Get direct sun when you can.

    As for Maca, its ok, but there are more potent libido enhancing herbs.

    The iodine content of maca is a concern for someone with Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
