I wonder if anyone out there is using this and, if so, what your personal experience has been. My integrative oncologist has just added maca powder to my lengthy regimen of supplements, and today, quite by accident while researching something else, came across some information that suggests it may raise estrogen levels. This is the last thing I want! However, despite some articles stating that it should never be used by women with a history of breast cancer or at high risk, there seems to be other literature that suggests it may be protective.
Does anyone have any knowledge about this? My doctor is unfortunately notoriously hard to reach with questions like this. I like to think he is knowledgeable and recommended the maca with good reason, but now I am feeling a little paranoid.
