    Hmm are you sure it was the maca and not pineapple etc?

    How much did you use all you need is half a teaspoon 3 times daily at least 20 minutes before meals.


  • i used 1/2 tsp. ive been trying to get rid of ingredients to try to pinpoint the problem while still using the maca...but i am having the same problem.

    Have you tried just taking the maca in a little water 30 minutes before meals?

    Ive never read of such reaction with maca, worst comes to worst and you have to eliminate the maca there are other herbs with similar benefits such as jiaogulan which is much better as its has much richer sterol content, is an adaptogen like maca so supports the adrenal glands and balances hormones etc.


  • Since you've had an allergic reaction to the aztec war drug, just don't take it anymore.
