im currently taking spironolactone for my acne, it's the only thing that helps. I have excess androgens. I wanted to know if i take maca withit would it be okay because maca made me break out. Or if it would be okay to take the saw palmetto and the maca with the spironolactone. Im a lil leary about the saw palmetto cuz i heard some ppl got cysts. Buti think if im taking the spironolactone and its helping with the acne, that taking the maca with it should be fine since it should balance it out.
First off, it is probably your excess androgenz dat is causing your acne. Maca will increase your testosterone or it might balance you will have 2 see if it workz. Also, because U are takin a medication bein able to take natural supplementz now becomez hard because anything U take might counter or effect your medication or your body in a bad way so if U take medicationz U must ask your doctor about each herb. I have never heard of people gettin cystz wit saw palmetto, saw palmetto blockz da testosterone da causez acne. I say try da Saw Palmetto first and see what happenz but remember 2 get da clear from your doctor or you could hurt your health with da saw palmetto with spironolactone. I got rid of my cystic acne going vegan, most of acne is bad eatin habitz

I've read a lot of sucess stories with wild yam and I was going to try taking it for a month. I've been taking maca for 2 months the only thing it has done Is store fat at the top of my butt. And made my stomuch flatter. I'm an hour glass shape so I think if I take more maca then my butt will fill out more an more at the top giving it a shelf look. But damn I wish it would fill up at the bottom too. I mean fish oil helped plump the bottom up. But that ish stank.(never again) lol
Maca makez your butt bigger because it increasez da DHEA in your body and dat (most of da time) turnz into testosterone in a womanz body and testosterone buildz muscle. Men build muscle faster than women because of their testosterone levelz. Maca is an adaptogen which createz DHEA and dat will read da hormonez in a personz body and will made DHEA into either estrogen or testosterone. Now, if your hormonez are balanced dat meanz U have more estrogen in your body because U are a woman so da DHEA will make testosterone and you are buildin muscle on da top of your butt. Muscle on da bottom, U have 2 do gluteus maximus exercisez. Fish oil containz testosterone as well it grew your gluteus maximus. Get a hormone test and see where your hormonez are at and dat will help your journey. Wild Yam is a phytoestrogen but if U are estrogen dominant it will not help U it will only make thingz worse. Wild Yam is also a prolactin and anti-androgen so more than likely it will go to your breastz before your butt. If U have excess fat or weight on your body it will have a harder time reachin your butt as well
