Excellent Herb/Food for Hormonal Health
February 23, 2014
Really good quality from this company. Maca tastes a bit like malt with a hint of bitter. I caution women who have fibroids and/or endometriosis though. In my 30's maca made my menstrual times a breeze, and heightened my erotic sensations. I took maca on and off through the years, until I got to my 40's I started experiencing pelvic discomforts each and every time I had a 1 teaspoon serving of Maca. Long story short...it aggravated the small fibroids I had...seems to contribute to their growth. My fibroid growths got to the point of causing bladder spasms (UTI-like symptoms, but no UTI). I didn't want it to be true about my beloved Maca, but after a process of elimination, it became clear that some chemical components was contributing to the growth and pain of my fibroids. If your in an estrogen dominant state, Maca might not be a good idea.
