Make Maca taste good with two low calorie ingredients amp up the benefits such as; increase energy, hormone balance, menopause relief, muscle gain, enhance fertility etc.

You no doubt are here because you too have mixed Maca with everything you can think of only to leave it hidden in the freezer or the back of your pantry. It is torture knowing the many benefits yet not being able to stomach the taste. I can relate, no matter what I mixed Maca with I could not stomach it, until one day, I stumbled upon something that both mask the flavor and made it taste good. All the wonderful stories you have heard about the magnificent benefits of this natural root are true. I can attest to the increased energy, added muscle mass and the relief of symptoms due to hormonal imbalance.

What Maca Did for Me

The Loss of My Thyroid

A Health Emergency - The results of a biopsy lead to the surgical removal of my thyroid. I had no idea how vital this little butterfly shaped organ was until I lost mine. I had zero energy, was angry, cranky and in pain. My amazing 14 year old (at the time) daughter who studies everything medical, researched to find a cure. She found Maca and it changed my life.

What is Maca

Maca is a root plant producing leaves

Maca is similar in size and appearance to a radish.

The plant originates in the Peruvian Andes and grows in a higher altitude than any other crop known in the world.  It thrives in extremely rocky soil other vegetation would not survive.

Maca survives the extreme climate of the Andes such as intense freezing temperatures, sunlight and wind.

It is the root of the plant originally found to increase the energy, fertility, and stamina of the indigenous people living in the region.

Cranberry Juice Comparible to Trader Joe's

Okay I looked high and low for those of you who can't shop at Trader Joe's and found a Pure Cranberry Juice

What Maca Did for Me

Maca Supported Loss of Thyroid Function for Me

I myself sought out maca to solve my personal health issues. I developed the symptoms of thyroid cancer and yet at the time had no idea what I was experiencing pointed to this disease. My general MD referred me to an endocrinologist who found a lump upon her first exam.  I felt careless not having noticed it myself.

Why I Need Maca

The tests that followed were radiation treatments, and surgery to remove my thyroid. In the end, I developed hypothyroidism a condition in which the thyroid gland no longer produces the important hormones needed for energy, metabolism, heart health, bone health and more. 

In short, the lack of a thyroid robs the body of its ability to supply the vital hormones responsible for so many functions. I began the balancing act of the prescription drug levothyroxine, a drug intended to replace the natural function of the thyroid.

While replacement therapy helps those suffering from the natural progression of thyroid disease, there are those like me who experience a sudden shock to the system after having the thyroid surgically removed. I did not experience a slow decline in thyroid function, it was as if someone pulled the battery pack from my body replacing it with a much weaker model. Long story short it was not until I found Maca that I felt alive again. Maca did what medication could not.

This sounds interesting. Is it a plant product that could be usefully taken by those of us who have no ailments, save in my case being somewhat past my physical prime?

Mira on 11/13/2014

I didn't know about maca. Your daughter is a wonderful person to have looked for a remedy for you, and how wonderful, too, that she found one. I'm glad you're feeling well and energetic again. Pinning on one of my Health & Nutrition boards.
