I know that we can't ask for medical advice here as far as what we should do about medical problems. I am more asking if any of you have tried this stuff and how it worked for you.
Maca root is a relative of radish, and is used in the form of powder and supplements (organic) to help ballance hormones and increase energy. I was researching side effects, and they included insomnia, fast heartbeat, feelings of anxiety (which makes sense because it gives energy) as well as acne and more extreme emotions if you take too much of it (which also makes sense because it ballances hormones- so it can also mess with your hormones if not taken properly).
I am looking into taking this to help with pms rather than midol or something with much worse side effects. I am going to consult my doctor before doing it no matter what, but I was curious if any of you have tried it and how it has helped/harmed you.
