Has anyone tried maca for hot flashes? I've read several articles where this really is suppose to work. I picked some up at Walmart today and am going to give it a try. Wondering if any one else has tried it? Nothing else has worked in the past.
Hate to sound ignorant (even if I am!) but what on earth is maca? And what would it be called in French?!?
Me too. Please let me know what maca is? Thanks Lou
Maca is a root used by the Inca Indians for a variety of reasons including hormone balance. If you do a search on maca supplement, you can find a lot of information on it. I don't recall everything I read except the part that it is suppose to relieve hot flashes. I just started yeterday on them so will post again in a week or so and let everyone know if it works or not. Just thought maybe someone else has tried it.
Thanks so much. I will research it. I am off of HRT for two months and I having some hot flashes at night. I take Remefemin twice a day, but I still get warm sometimes at night. Good luck and keep us posted. Lou
Just want to let everyone know that I have been taking the maca root supplement for two weeks now. My hot flashes are virually gone. I take them twice a day. If I miss a dose I sometimes get a little warm. It works for me but may not work for everyone. It's worth a try.
Could you tell us the dose of Maca that you take?
I've been taking 3 500MG tabs in the morning and 3 at night. It sure works for me. The best deal I found on these was at herbsdelivered.com. Even with the shipping it is less that Walmart.
Have you noticed any side effects to the Maca (also spelled MACCA I think).
I read it was good for libido---have you noticed increase or decrease in this area?
I haven't noticed any side effects with the maca. I did notice that I don't have as much vaginal dryness. Hasn't done anything for libido so far but it sure has helped with the hot flashes.
Please check out our store for all organic MACA products and other alternative health items!
