    MACA Question

    I read on-line that MACA has the potential to increase Estrogen Levels.

    Anyone experience this while taking MACA?

    Thanks!!!

    It won't impact your estrogen.

    Ive not heard that before. Any reasoning why it would increase estrogen from what you have read?

    "Hormone-sensitive conditions such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids: Extracts from maca might act like estrogen. If you have any condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen, do not use these extracts."

    I think it only potentially happens to women, thought I would ask.

    Read this. Far more advanced than webmd, imho. Whenever you need research on supplements, stop at examine.com first.
