Amidst More Bad News About HRT, Studies on Peruvian Maca Root Offer Hope to Women
Date:10/26/2010

NEW YORK, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Native to the high Andes, Maca Root, used for thousands of years in Peru for its hormonal effects, is providing effective relief for an increasing number of menopausal women in the U.S. Now we know why.

"Since IGF-1 helps the body produce its own hormones, maca root works in a completely different way than dietary supplements such as black cohosh and isoflavones of soy," said Muller.  "These plants contain weak plant estrogens.  Although they often work for a few months to alleviate mild menopausal symptoms, they are ineffective for women with more severe symptoms.  In contrast, women generally experience dramatic relief with high quality maca root supplements. Unfortunately though," she adds, "most maca root now sold in the U.S. is raw, which is not very effective and often causes severe side effects. In Peru, maca root is never eaten raw."
