Re: Maca for adrenal regulation and energy?
I took it in a very small amount in Vitanica's Pregnancy Prep. I had a huge increase in appetite (and gained weight), and problems with sleeplessness and jitteryness. Taking the other herbs in that blend were fine. To further confirm it was the Maca, I tried some of my darling's Maca, and it definitely increased my appetite and made me anxious. I read in several places that Maca can be associated with an increase in appetite.
My naturopath is treating me for adrenal fatigue and frequent early miscarriages and has me taking Vitex and a supplement called Drenatropin, she didn't think Maca was a good idea for adrenals.
