How to consume maca?
Eating powdered maca may be more useful if we need to better control the dose we take, the idea is to start with less dose and try their effects, but as we have already mentioned, consultation with a specialist is appropriate. We should also take it always in the morning.
It is best to consume the maca root with a meal, especially in the stages when your body is only getting used to supplements like maca. No matter what mode of consumption you decide to use, maca powder or maca pills (maca capsules), start with small doses if it is new in your body and gradually increase it.
There are people who do not care about the taste of maca powder that approximates a nutty flavor, so you can add it to yogurt, juice, smoothie or salad.
Many of its benefits can be noticed immediately, however if we want it to have more profound effects (as an endocrine regulator for example) it is recommended to take it at least three months and then assess it together with a specialist. Keep in mind that it has prolonged effects even after you stop taking it
Before starting to use natural supplements or make any important changes in our diet and eating habits is important to consult a specialist to guide us to take the best decision. In this case we must be alert in cases of hypertension without control, and control the dose a lot in cases of over excitation of the immune system.
