Maca for Long-Covid Memory Issues and Cognitive Impairment
After having Covid, I soon realized I had Long-Covid. Scary-bad Alzheimer's-level memory issues. It was deeply concerning.
I started taking Maca for a multitude of issues like metabolism, depression, balancing my hormones, post-menopause, vaginal dryness, energy, etc...
After a month of supplementing with Maca, I noticed my memory and cognitive issues had greatly improved. Further research shows that Maca is also specifically indicated for cognitive function. My full memory function has returned.
Maca is know as the South American GinSeng, generally from Peru. It grows at the highest altitudes. Maca affects the pineal and pituitary glands. These glands regulate our hormones, metabolism, etc. It is an adaptogen, meaning it helps to manage stress.
Any fertility and libido issues it will balance, so be careful! I have knowledge of women with fertility issues becoming pregnant shortly after supplementing with Maca. Post-menopause women and male fertility issues are deeply supported by this herb.
There are different types of Maca. Red, black and Yellow.They are emphasized for different issues. I found an organic supplement on xoxo that combined all 3.
There are different high-potency Maca's on xoxo. You have to find and work with one that is comfortable for you. Too high potency can make you feel jittery.
I generally took about 3 at breakfast and lunch. You don't want to take it too late as it can keep you up at night ... for great sex ;)
