Health Notes

Maca

Maca
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Stress
Dose: Refer to label instructions

The herbs discussed here are considered members of a controversial category known as adaptogens, which are thought to increase the body's resistance to stress, and to generally enhance physical and mental functioning.1, 2 Many animal studies have shown that various herbal adaptogens have protective effects against physically stressful experiences,3, 4 but whether these findings are relevant to human stress experiences is debatable.

Animal studies have shown that maca can reduce the negative effects of stress; however, whether maca is effective in humans is unknown.5

Low Libido

The mechanism of action of maca was not clear; it did not appear to be due to an increase in testosterone levels or to an improvement in mood.1

Parts Used & Where Grown

Maca is a cruciferous vegetable in the mustard family, related to radishes and turnips.

The four major cultivars of maca are red, black, cream, and purple; none has been definitely proven to be medicinally superior to any other.

    Comments about GNC Maca Man®:

    I decided to try this product as an energy suuplement, and also for a little extra boost in the bedroom. First off, I want to say that I do not recommend taking the full suggested dosage of 3 capsules at a time. I had taken the full dosage once, and my stomach was very upset. I decided to break it down to one capsule 3 times throughout the day, and I noticed results almost immediately. More energy, and I was ready to go in the bedroom on just moment's notice. Very good product when taking in a divided dosage.

    EFFECTIVE but, VERY Hard to Swallow

    Comments about GNC Maca Man®:

    I have been taking this product for about 2 months and have recently ordered more... I feel like it gives me more energy for my work outs or even just as I sit at my desk during the day. With regards to the bedroom -- yep, helps there too. I do have a slight 'jittery' feeling after taking it (about 1.5 hours after) but, with monitored blood pressure, I'm not seeing any significant negative effects.

    The MAIN complaint that I have about this product is the ability to swallow. I cannot tell you how many times over the past two months that I've 'gagged' trying to get this pill down - and I can take a larger pill with the best of them. For those of you familiar with the Mega Man series of vitamins, this is similar in size to the Metabolism version but, isn't smooth or coated. As such, there's a lousy taste and it certainly has a tendency to catch in your throat - or at least it does mine.

    All in all, I continue to take it as I've seen results with work outs and behind closed doors. One out of two thumbs up for me... Coat this tablet and you'll get two thumbs up!

      It makes pleasure faster and better. Longer pleasure. Does have some side affects: nausea at times, especially if you have an empty stomach. Makes you jittery and sweaty at times.

        This product works well but its not so easy to swallow and have a bad taste and bad after taste. Maybe they need to coat this with something more easy to swallow and maybe have a sweet/candy taste to it.

              I have low "T" and use a presciption daily. I take one of these each morning and have found that I feel better during the day. Happier, more energenic and and overall feeling of wellness. I was taking before bed but had trouble sleeping. Since switching to mornings I have no problems with sleeping anymore. As far as the bedroom goes, I'm sure things are better. But I am not useing them for that reason.
