Can you consume too much? I made those Super Candies from another thread and I ate half the recipe in 2 days. It's delicious, but that's about 1/8 cup per day. Too much? Saw another post about how it may cause weight gain and that's fine with me :) but health-wise, is it okay? How much do you take regularly?

I don't use it yet, but at the healthfood store, the clerk warned me that you can use too much. I know that isn't very helpful, but wanted to tell you what she told me. Something about blood pressure. That is probably for people who have a specific problem. Do a google on it! It is supposed to be good for you if you are otherwise healthy.

Are there any side effects or interactions? In toxicity studies conducted in the U.S., maca showed absolutely no toxicity and no adverse pharmacological effects. In animal studies, the more maca animals consume, the stronger and more sexually active they become.

My partner will be so pleased as to those "negative" side effects you mentioned, lol.
