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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
My husband and I have unexplained infertility. We needed some help (clomid, femara, trigger shot, IUI) conceiving both our children. We are currently trying for a third but opted to take it easy and try on our own. I came across Maca in my research for supplements to regulate my long cycles and promote ovulation.
I started my husband on Maca first, giving him one pill a day in addition to Fertilaid (fertility multivitamin that already contains a small amount of Maca). It’s been about 2 weeks and he seems to be doing fine. No noticeable change in libido, but no negative change in mood either. Then today I decided to try it too. I took one in the morning and I kid you not I turned into the Hulk all day. I was nearly uncontrollably angry at everything. I considered the possibility that I’m just PMS-ing, but this felt sudden and random. A quick google search showed that there are some people who may be more prone to anger and emotional issues and should not take Maca.
My words of advice - if you take it and start feeling off, you should trust yourself and stop right away.
I wanted to love this one, but I am not sure why it makes me dehydrated, specially in the morning when i get up my tongue is super dry like I haven’t had water in days. I stopped taking after 3 weeks and the dehydration went away. I might give it another shot eventually
