WHY CHOOSE MACA?
Clinically at Happy Healthy Clinic we have found Maca may help:
- Improve cycle length and flow (quantity, quality and length).
- Increase progesterone and reduce estrogen dominance.
- Reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, moodiness, lethargy and increase libido.
How is Prime Nature organic maca different to other Maca?
We have specifically chosen this Maca for several reasons. It is 100% organic, vegan, 100% pure peruvian Maca (no fillers or binders) and fair trade.
There are many choices of Maca available on the market, through clinical experience we have found Prime Nature Maca to be the superior product.
Maca is a cruciferous root vegetable that looks like a radish but grows like a sweet potato. Genuine Maca is only grown in the Peruvian Andes Mountains, 4100 meters above sea level. The harshness of this environment helps to ensure the diverse and numerous properties of Maca. Maca grown in different environments (such as China) has been shown to contain less diverse properties than Peruvian Maca.
What to expect when taking Maca:
Most people report an improvement in energy and noticeably reduced PMS symptoms. Both of these effects can take between 1-3 cycles to notice. We have found that the first period on Maca is usually noticeably heavier and clottier, but usually less painful. We believe this is showing an improvement in the circulation to the uterus and a clearing out of old blood from the uterus. For some women who have a large build up of stagnant blood this can also be noted during their 2nd period on Maca. For most women the second cycle on Maca is usually quite different, with most women noting an improved cycle length and menstrual flow. We have many peri-menopausal and post-menopausal patient’s who take Maca for its ability to help enhance libido and energy, as well as many women noting a reduction in hot flushes and night sweats.
