    Hey all, just wanted to ask about Maca, and if anybody have exp. with it.
    My friend suggested to try.
    So i was more wondering if somebody have taken Maca for depression,stress, social anxiety, anxiety... , fatigue,
    and well that is all known that it increases libido... which has been a little problem lately aswell.

    a little take out from a research of Maca
    so the question is does it really work?

    - Maca has an important effect as an energizer. Energizer effect may be associated to the
    increase of serum levels of human growth hormone (HGH).
    - It has effects over energy reserves acting over body fat.
    - Due to the number of steroidal glycosides, maca is gaining popularity among weight
    lifters and body builders as a natural alternative to anabolic steroids.
    - Has an anti-anemic effect (balanced blood iron levels).

    STATE OF MIND
    - Maca improves the state of mind. Used for loss of memory, fatigue and mental weakness
    - DHEA levels increased in a large proportion of the males treated with maca.
    - Consumption of maca produce a “general sense of well being”.

    - Maca decreases anxiety from the two weeks of treatment.

    STRESS
    - The treatment with maca decreases stress and the scale of mind renounce, favoring a
    better response to stress.
    - Maca can help with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and general fatigue brought on by
    aging, because it raises DHEA and cortisol levels.
    - Most people with CFS have adrenal fatigue, and it is very effective for rebuilding
    exhausted adrenal glands.

    I throw a lot of Navitas Naturals products into my famously putrid protein shakes but even that company doesn't claim all those benefits: http://www.navitasnaturals.com/products/maca.html I haven't noticed any benefits yet but I only take the equivalent of a tablespoon of maca per day (along with powdered acai, cacao, chia, goji, pomegranate and wheatgrass).

    I started taking this in pill form recently. It has made me as horny as a 13 year old boy. I always want to wank now, I am always thinking about sex. It's weird. I'm taking a little break from it at present actually.

    so it makes you want to wank?
    instead of having sex?
    haha... i should be careful then?

    but okay... i guess i should have the same libido as a 13 year old boy, as i´m 22 years old , and have very very low sex drive.
