So I’ve been getting a ton load of questions about maca root. Here are some frequently asked questions:
How long will it take to see results?
You will see results within 3-4 weeks

What are the side effects if any?
Maca root is a food so unlike medication it does not have the typical side effects. You may experience and increased sex drive and/or acne. If you have any medical issues please discuss taking maca root with your doctor.
Is it true that maca root will make you break out?
Some people do report acne as a side effect from maca root. I have not experienced any acne. I would suggest starting out with half the recommended dose and working up to the maximum dose over the course of a month or two.
Is it okay to use maca root while I am on birth control?
No, do not take maca root if you are on any kind of birth control medication. Maca root increases fertility which may decrease the effectiveness of your medication.
Where can I purchase maca root?
You may also purchase at Whole Foods Market and other health food stores. I do not recommend buying supplements on Amazon. If you live outside of the United States I am not sure where you can get Maca Root locally. Try to find a trusted health food store that ships internationally.

The results will be enhanced while taking maca root once you stop the results fade a bit but the additional weight gain around your buttocks will remain.
