Can Maca Help You Conceive?
Those who have just recently learned about the potential of maca in increasing fertility naturally would like to
know if maca can really help them conceive. What better way to prove this than a personal testimony of how maca
helped a person achieve conception.
A working nurse had been trying to get pregnant for 2 years without success. When her doctor recommended her to
drink Royal Maca tea, in two months she got pregnant and eventually gave birth to her first baby. In March of 2009,
she was due for her second baby, also through the help of maca.
This is not an isolated case because another woman was also trying to get pregnant for six months with no
success. She was introduced to the uses of maca for fertility through a health website and began taking it in
powder form mixing it with her smoothies. She immediately felt positive changes in her body, with improved stamina
and libido. After some time, when she went for a boob job, she was first examined as a protocol before the
operation. The doctor said she couldn’t undergo any operation because she is pregnant. Maca can really help you
conceive, as these two examples show. And they are not the only ones.
