View Full Version : maca=tiredness?

is it possible for maca to cause sleepiness? I had some this morning and I feel more tired than when I got up. I don't know much about maca, or what it's *really* for. :o I only take is occasionally as a "superfood".
What do you think?

maca gives me energy!

It's possible. The same thing happened to me yesterday. Felt great in the morning and through lunch, had some (just got it) in the afternoon and was sleepy and cranky all evening. I also got that reaction when I had some for the first time in Cafe Gratitude but thought it was due to other things I had there. Maybe we are allergic?
Glad I read your post!

At first I got too wired off of it, then three hours later I came down and had to pull my truck over and take a little nap to recover. I've got two bags of the stuff!
for me maca = energy....
are you eating enough fruits/greens? Perhaps you need more food energy.

Maca = energy for me too... but you know different people react differently to things...
for instance - coffee - puts me INSTANTLY to sleep. Catnip (the herb) which calms humans... wires me beyond measure... so maybe that's how maca affects you?
do an experiment one day when you are at home and don't have to go anywhere and see how your body reacts... then make sure you post your results!
