Hey beauties, let’s talk about us females a little more than we are talked about, health wise anyway. I’ve always been a fan of vitamins and natural herbs, but there is so much out there that, how does one know what is the truth? The internet and even so-called watching YouTube can be giving misleading information. You as a person should figure out every detail you’ve read or heard and know what’s right for your body and health. Just because it’s a natural supplement doesn’t mean it has no side effects or dangerous health effects. That being said let’s get right to this. 

There are many truths and myths about the health and nutritional benefits of Maca Root in particular. The truth is that the Maca herb contains many minerals and vitamins that can be used as supplements to anyone’s daily diet. Did you know, Scientific research has found that maca is amazingly rich in amino acids, phytonutrients, fatty acids, and vitamins and minerals? Maca root (Lepidium meyenii) is an adaptogen and a member of the cruciferous family, like broccoli and cabbage, but due to its unique properties it considered one of the world’s natural “superfoods.”  Maca is grown high in the mountains of South America, mainly in high altitude regions of Peru. In South America, it’s a fact that Maca Root extract is the best treatment for weakness, fatigue and lack of energy. 
Maca is LIKELY SAFE for most people when taken in amounts found in foods. Maca is POSSIBLY SAFE when taken by mouth in larger amounts as medicine (up to 3 grams daily) for up to 4 months. Maca seems to be well tolerated by most people. Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.

Maca for Women: What are the Benefits?

  • Decreases Menopause Symptoms.
  •  Improves Sexual Function.
  •  Aphrodisiac. 
  • Supports Mood. 
  • Fertility. 
  •  Increases Bone Density. 
  • Energy Enhancer.
  •  Reduces depression.
  •  Improved skin issues. 

With all the amount of research, and talking to my doctor for their opinion and approval I decided to try maca root capsules, that are similar to taking vitamins. It’s been a little over a month taking my Maca dietary supplements and overall I’m pretty happy with the benefits I’m starting to feel. Let me explain a little about my health issues I’m dealing with and why I choose Maca. All my life I’ve always dealt with being anemic, I’ve taken iron, I’ve eaten food with iron in them, and I’ve gotten and still get iron fusion. With all that, my blood work always comes back with still having low anemia. I was diagnosed with PMS (I always thought that was just a saying) but it’s really something that woman go through.. I suffer from heavy bleeding, painful cramping, mood swings, and fatigue. I also suffer from depression.

Let’s get something straight to the point and out there, when taking any supplements you will not see results in a couple of days, even in a week or two. Don’t accept to get quick easy results. It takes at least a whole month to see somewhat of results, you need at least 3 months to see a sufficient amount of any results you are trying to achieve. With anything that one takes or drinks it always takes time. Now, onto what results I saw and still want and hope to see in the coming months by taking this supplement. 

The bottle comes with 90 capsules, it’s said on the back of the bottle to take 1 capsule 1-2 times per day. I take 2 capsules with my breakfast in the morning. 

The major result I’ve felt is the decrease in the painful cramping I get during “the time of the month”. I went from suffering to really painful like kinda similar to labor pain, too little to no cramping at all! It has done nothing for lighting my blood flow. I have a slight increase in energy during the day. Another huge factor I’ve felt is I have a higher libido, which you can say makes you more desirable in the mood! I hope in time my energy increases more and more. It reduces my depression a little more each time. I haven’t felt as depressed as I usually feel. My depression is still there but I’m feeling a little less saddened, and I’m wanting to feel a little happier. I don’t see any results concerning the skin issues of my acne, that will probably take a little longer since a supplement is starting off slowly as a maca powder is a bit stronger. I will continue to use this supplement and will repurchase after I’m done with the first bottle. My hopes are to find maca powder or the maca root plant itself. I want to be able to cook it with food, and also have it in drinks. I’m starting off slow and gradually will work my way to stronger doses. 

Final verdict, I truly think this something worth trying out. Very glad I went ahead to trying out maca supplement and very excited to see what longer visible results it gives. 

Have any of you beauties tried maca root supplements or powder? If so what were your results? I’d love to hear from you. 

Until next time,

Xoxo
