Maral, also known as Rhaponticum carthamoides and Leuzea root, is an adaptogenic herb that can be found growing in the harsher climates of the world, such as the frigid forests or mountainous regions of Siberia and Eastern Europe. Maral, or leuzea, derives its name from the deer which are known to eat the invigorating root.
Maral is one of, if not, the strongest herbal aphrodisiac and anabolics as of yet discovered. Only ginseng and Mucuna pruriens come close, and both of these have secondary effects that may not be desired in the given circumstances. This is how Maral root distinguishes itself, possessing aphrodisiac and anabolic properties that show off the root’s potent activity, all without causing a perceived elevation of stress hormones. In published studies, Maral root was found to enhance muscle synthesis, reduce the levels of stress hormones, and improve libido.

Maral can be consumed directly, mixed with warm water into a cocoa-tasting drink, used in a smoothie, or brewed into tea. Small amounts daily are recommended for health and nutrition, while larger amounts can be used as a stimulating adaptogen and aphrodisiac. Maral is a chief adaptogen and aphrodisiac and benefits from the addition of herbs such as Safed musli, Suma, Tribulus, Maca, Rehmannia, Ginseng, and Cordyceps.
