Maca is an adaptogen.
Due to depression, I have been low energy for years. Maca has helped on many levels.
I take a combination of black, red and yellow maca in the morning. @ 3000 mg. My energy level, mood and stress have balanced out. Post menopause, maca has boosted my libido and the vaginal dryness is subsiding. The belly fat is melting off.
Maca works by nourishing the endocrine system which in turn regulates the hormones. It balances the adrenals from exhaustion. It also balances the thyroids, parathyroids, pituitary and pineal glands.
It is good for male and female libido. Many women dealing with fertility issues tend to become pregnant while using maca. It is good for treating fibroids, PCOS and cystic acne.
