    I became extremely ill after 2 months of taking 1/2 teaspoon maca daily that I would up in the emergency room with severe back pain near my kidneys.

    I started taking Maca over a year ago due to horrendous hot flashes. Let' me tell you something it works! I have little to no hot flahes and it helps with other perimenopause/PMS symptoms as (mood swings, etc). Love this herb and I'm so glad I found. Can't live without it!
