Probably not: That's sort of like asking if a potato is similar to a vitamin supplement. Neither maca root nor fertility blend are single items (several manufacturers put those words on their labels). Neither maca root nor fertility blend are medications. They are over-the-counter supplements, which means little or no testing has been done, and nobody really knows for sure what the effects or side effects are.

Little data...: Experiments on some animal models have shown that maca root may improve sperm motility. Studies in humans are much more limiting. No clinical trials have tested whether or not maca root improved fertility.
