Ok soooooooo......... I've been having unprotected sex for decades never gotten pregnant. I'm 37 years old don't have 1 child however I ordered this maca root a few weeks ago took 4 at one time a day I wanna say I started taking them right when my period went off at the beginning of March....... I ordered these pills in hope of getting a bigger booty & to do something about my awful a$$ mood swings. I ended up biting more than I could chew, my period was due for March 28 it never came it's now after midnight which is April 5 now & I'm just leaving the emergency room after taking a pregnancy test & it came back positive. I told them I needed to confirm this cause I think the store done sold me a April fool's pregnancy test. Low & behold I'm pregnant for the first time in my life at the age of 37
Not for thyroid. I wish I would have done my research before purchasing this. I was looking for something to give my thyroid a boost and help balance my hormones however Maca contains a chemical that works as a goitrogen and goitorgens block iodine uptake from the thyroid and iodine is one of the most important building blocks in thyroid hormone production so being hypothyroid these made me worse. Even if you do not have a thyroid condition this could affect your thyroid function so be aware of that.
Ok. Ladies. If you have trouble getting turned on or staying engaged in your sex life, or even becoming stimulated in the first place... look no further. These MACA supplements are insanely effective. I find that I am especially lubricated from taking these daily and stay that way. They also really spiked my libido and I feel my sex drive has been restored after years of feeling like something was wrong with me.
I must add that though the benefits of these pills greatly outweigh the cons; I must state the cons. I encountered some pretty unusual womanly issues at the start of my taking these supplements that included a weird feeling in my lady parts that I thought was a UTI but really wasn’t, some very weird periods and extremely painful period cramps (more than my regular periods). It seems my body has finally adjusted to these after reducing to one capsule per day as opposed to the recommended 2. I will up my dose once I feel I’ve been properly introduced. My body seems to be accustoming itself finally; but it was quite the journey. Mind you, these deal directly with hormones so as someone with thyroid issues in my past this adjustment period may have been thanks to that.
Overall these have worked wonders for my sex life and overall womanly glow.
I ordered this because I was dealing with low progesterone and estrogen dominance, and was having difficulty conceiving. Everyone I spoke to recommended Maca, and I chose this product because of the quality, and because it contained all three kinds of maca. Maca's not an herbal supplement, but rather a superfood, and helps regulate hormone balance for both men and women.
I will say I chose to stop taking it recently because I am now pregnant. ;) Seems to have worked!
This product is the truth. I rarely write reviews,but I had to make an exception for this product.
Maca has given me extra stamina, mental clarity, clearer skin, sexual energy and reduced my overeating.
Its also helped me strengthen my muscles and gain some agility. I had a groin / hip injury that ive been rehabbing for awhile. Before taking maca, id be worn out after finishing my jog and jumping rope.
After taking maca for a week; ive added two laps to my jog, and I've been able to play basketball after jumping rope.
Also, maca has made my hair softer and thicker. In short, if you don't try this product, you're nuts.
One more thing, if you have any kind of anxiety or add ; id recommend only taking one of these pills, not two. Yes it will help relieve those symptoms, but taking two of these made me kind of jittery.
Maybe someone who is in my shoes will appreciate this review. I had a total hysterectomy in 2012 and then got breast cancer in 2013 from taking hormone Estradiol. I’ve suffered for years with hot flashes, vaginal dryness, etc. I bought this based on the great reviews hoping for some relief. I started out the first week with 1 pill twice a day then went up the second week to the dose listed on the bottle - 2 twice a day (3800 mg). After my second week I knew it was working. Hot flashes were WAY better and I was sleeping great. Vaginal dryness was better as well. Last week (3rd week) I had severe, watery diarrhea and horrible stomach pain!!! Ended up being a really bad gallbladder attack that I suffered with for a week until I figured out it was the Maca. Increased estrogen in the body is known to cause gallbladder attacks. SO, it does reduce menopause symptoms and it definitely increases estrogen in your body but watch out for gallbladder attacks. So sorry I can’t keep taking this. My best friend is taking it without issue but she had her gallbladder removed years ago. Go figure!
This actually works! I have no idea if it’s all in my head or if I had a hormonal imbalance but after 2 weeks I see a huge difference already. I’m mid 40’s and just wasn’t feeling it anymore. Now I am, and often :-) pricey but helpful.
