View Full Version : Maca powder Peru source only?
06-29-2008, 03:28 PM
I've been reading some information on Maca. There is so much conflicting information on the Internet with just about everything you look up. I read that when using Maca you should make sure it is from Peru because that is the only Maca that has the studies showing it's benefits. Is this true and where do you guys get your Maca from? There is some sold in my local health food store but I didn't see any information on the package stating it was from Peru. Also, I am having issues with estrogen dominance so I want to avoid anything that would increase this. Should Maca be ok?

I have similar issues, I posted about raw food and fertility in the health area of this site.
You need to avoid stuff like flax, use chia instead. Keep your food items in glass jars, instead of plastic.
If you have any other questions, let me know.

Thanks for the response. I did a search before I posted but all it turned up was every single post on the 1st page of this forum. I must have done something wrong. I'll try it again.
RawDrop, thank you for the information concerning flax. I wasn't aware of that! I just purchased flax oil, seeds and meal. The nutrtionist I met with never even mentioned avoiding flax. Looks like I just wasted a lot of money:rolleyes: It appears I may also have a hypthyroid issue and there seems to be alot of conflicting information about what foods to avoid in that area as well. Example, I purchased E3 Live which really helped with energy. Then I read from someone that I'll just discribe as a "health guru" and he said NOT to use algae and sea veggies because in the long run it will prevent the thyroid from working on its own. Ok, I thought sea veggies were good for this problem. I also have a serious constipation problem as a result of either the estrogen or thyroid problems. Small amounts of Kale help. Then I read that those with estrogen and thyroid problems should avoid Kale. I am fairly new to raw foods and veggies in general. Other than tomato and cucumbers and green beans I never cared for vegetables. So I was all excited that I now have aquired a taste for broccoli and baby spinach. Now I read that I should avoid those as well as nuts and even strawberries and peaches. I just started making delicious smoothies with strawberries and baby spinach. At this point I feel I am down to carrots and water. I am so confused???? What foods did you find helped/hurt with your estrogen problem.

May I ask why we should keep our chia, flax seed, etc. in glass jars and not plastic?
