Maca Root?

2 years, 2 months ago

Hey HEthens, I was wondering what any of your experiences with Maca Root are?

I’ve started putting the gelatinized, freeze-dried powder into my smoothies and have noticed a difference in my energy level but that could be the placebo effect, thoughts? I’ve done some research into it but from what I gather there are fairly mixed results among people.

While I don’t have experience with maca I do have experience with other herbs and roots. It’s probably not a placebo. I had a bad cough I couldn’t shake for a month then I started making herb tonics and it was completely gone after two days. I made the same tonic for my sister yesterday for her inflamed lungs and today it’s completely gone as well. Taking the tonics I’ve noticed my energy, well being, and libido have all increased. Natural super foods and medicines are the way to go man. I was thinking about buying some maca actually.

@splashartist, Right on man, I don’t know too much about herbal tonics, just starting to get into it. What herbs do you use in these tonics?

Sorry if this is a bit late…I also started experimenting with SuperFoods not long ago (though I have stopped taking them as my healthy diet went down the drain, and I thought it was just a waste of beautiful food).

Anyway, I took Maca powder once per day, either in a smoothie or in Raw chocolate and I loved the effects. It seemed to make my energy levels higher, lifted my depression and anxiety slightly, and made me feek more confident in myself. It also really increased my libido (which was a good thing for me as it had decreased due to feeling depressed).

I really need to look in to more superfoods because I think they are great.

I was living in Cusco, Peru for a few months last year around this time and I made it a habit of chugging a glass of Maca root drink I bought from this lady in La Feria every morning, and I can safely say it’s no placebo. Its a superfood, and pacls a punch. I had extremely high energy (that lasted throughout long hikes, bike riding etc) When I left Peru and went back to Chile I started buying the powder form and put a teaspoon in my morning smoothie as well. The taste is a bit strong, but not too overwhelming. I am pretty sure maca root can also help raise libido levels.

I get fresh maca regularly from a local chinese herb shop in powdered form. This type of medicine is best fresh. I eat huge doses mixed into water for endurance.
