Maca root helps balance our hormones and due to an over abundance of environmental estrogens, most people’s hormones are a bit out of whack. Maca stimulates and nourishes the hypothalamus and pituitary glands which are the “master glands” of the body. These glands actually regulate the other glands, so when in balance they can bring balance to the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands.

Menopause

Oh don't know why the shoe is there lol

I bet it would help with menopause. Might reverse it somewhat. Natural progesterone cream might help you as well.

I've read that Peruvian women don't go through menopause until way later than American women do. Could be the maca? Maybe ?

Jennifer Watson 3 years

It's amazing. I love. Maca

Can you take it while breastfeeding?

Darya Hathaway

I've read that you can, yes.

I was trying to research HOW it works, but information on that seems scarce. Seems to be a mystery! But I found this: Chris Kilham, author of Hot Plants, says, "Maca enjoys a very long history of successful medicinal use for menopausal discomfort, infertility, and sexual healing. The question is not whether it works -- because we know it works with certainty -- but how it works."

Encouraging information for those who suffer!

Cheri Salter 3 years

It sure does work for me and it works so fast! I was feeling a bit flat in the sex department and needed an energy boost and it definitely helps a lot with both!

Jennifer Watson 3 years

Jennifer Watson I'm happy for you that you found this! Hopefully your post will help many others!

Cheri Salter 3 years

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. How much are you adding to your smoothies?

Emma Lange

I've been adding about 1/2 tablespoon which is more than it says on the package but since it's just a root vegetable there's no harm in getting extra. Lol

Jennifer Watson 3 years

Thank you! X
