Maca and Ovulation

Helpful or not? While some women swear that maca brings on early ovulation in their cases, many other women say that maca has delayed their ovulation in their particular case.

Maca, Fertility Superstar!

When it comes to natural fertility supplements, Maca Root is one of the most popular ones out there. Maca Root comes from a plant that grows in the Andes mountains in Peru. Maca can grow in some of the harshest climates in the entire world, and that makes it a really special plant. Maca has been said to be a fertility superstar herbal supplement. It does not contain any hormones of its own, but it works wonders on the body’s own hormones. It is more of a “balancing hormone,” meaning that while it doesn’t directly add any hormones to the body, it supports and balances the hormones that are already in place.

How Maca Works

Maca is special because while it doesn’t contain any hormones of its own, it does contain 31 different minerals and 60 different phytonutrients. Maca is especially good at nourishing the endocrine system, including the thyroid, adrenal and pituitary glands. Maca can increase energy, stamina, mental clarity, and normal sexual function. It has also been known to improve thyroid function, and helps to support hormonal balance. Some women say that after taking Maca they have noticed a huge improvement in their energy and moods as well.

How To Use Maca

There are several different ways to use Maca for fertility. You can use it as a powder that you can add to juices, baked goods, smoothies, etc. You can also use it as a convenient capsule form that you can take daily as a supplement. Maca also comes as a tincture, which is a liquid form of the supplement, which can be added to drinks. Maca needs to be taken regularly for best results, so whatever option you choose, make sure to take it every day. You have to build it up in your system for best results, and that takes a lot of time.

Maca And Ovulation

The truth about maca and ovulation is not completely clear at this time. While some women swear that maca brings on early ovulation in their cases, many other women say that maca has delayed their ovulation in their particular case. However, some other women say that Maca won’t do anything to your ovulation. It is worth a shot however, since Maca does have other benefits besides just ovulation benefits. It is safe to take whether or not it helps with ovulation. However, be careful, and avoid taking Maca during pregnancy.
