maca root

So what exactly is a maca root (Lepidium Meyennii)?

It looks like a radish and is a member of the same family of plants as broccoli and cabbage. So why should both women and men use it to improve their sex lives instead of HRT? Well, maybe because HRT can cause heart attacks, strokes, blood clots and breast cancer! If there were no other reasons, would those four be enough? And how do we know the maca root is not just as dangerous? We don’t. Still, how harmful can a natural, radish-like cousin of a cabbage plant be? Slightly dangerous? Fairly dangerous? Very dangerous? Poisonous mushrooms are natural and certainly look innocent. But we know the maca root is not poisonous and apparently has no side effects. So can we trust the maca root to do the job of enhancing our sex lives? To eliminate the need for HRT or “male enhancement ” pills like Viagra?

According to the studies, the answer is yes. But can we trust the studies?

    I think more research should be done to know if synthetic or natural remedies are not damaging to the health. Thanks for the information.

    I started taking macafem (3 500mg capsules/day) as was suggested on the bottle for relief of menopausal symptoms. I noticed over a week or two that I was becoming very itchy on some areas of my body. Vaginal itchiness was so bad that I stopped taking the supplement to see if that was the cause. I have been off it for a few days and the itching is improving somewhat. Could this be a “normal” effect from the maca or could it be a possible allergy? I am allergic to latex (blood test positive) and was wondering if maca could be a similar substance causing a similar allergic reaction or if they could have somehow come in contact during production.
