    I started taking 1.5 g of Maca daily to increase my energy and libido. I already take an array of supplements for different health issues and I also get the Depo Provera shot. It may be a side effect or interaction between what I take and the Maca, but it made my anxiety worse, gave me insomnia, increased my migraines and made me nauseas and lightheaded. It's effectiveness for giving me energy ... Show Full Comment

    After one dose (1/2 teaspoon) mixed into my daily smoothy, I developed insomnia and hot flashes. I never had a problem with either of these. After two weeks, I tried it again with the same results. I bought a second brand and tried it again after two months. Same results. The first brand was FiveFoods.

    This was added to a chocolate-chicory tea that I drink and I didn’t realize it was affecting my hormones until I read this post. I am post menopausal. It has lowered my depression, and boosted my sex drive (and related). Not sure it’s done anything for the anemia but definitely helped my energy. Took A while to fully kick in. I also had the pimples at first. * I would warn anyone that has ... Show Full Comment

    I take 1 500mg daily and I'm not as anxious but I notice breast enlargement as well as a huge change in my appetite (gained 8lbs) loved that btw. I'm 42 and I guess its changing my hormone balance in a positive way.
