I thought about trying maca to increase my energy levels. However, I'm a little leery about some of the potential side effects (increased risk of developing goiters, worsening thyroid problems, to name a few). I think I'll do a little more research before diving into it. For those of you who are seeing positive results, that is great! :-)

I started taking maca years ago. It has really helped me with my ovarian cysts. I got so tired of Doctors wanting to put me on pain meds and different birth controls. This has been the only thing that truly helped me. :)

I use Maca powder and can really tell a difference! It smells kind of weird, but you can't even taste it when you add it to food. Use it!! Seriously!
