I am 38 years old and have been going to a naturopathic doctor who wants to put me on bioidentical hormones since he found out that I have low progesterone. How would you compare Maca with taking bioidentical progesterone?
- Clinical experience has shown them that Royal Maca is more effective in creating a healthy estrogen-progesterone balance in the body than using a bioidentical progesterone product.
- Royal Maca helps put the whole endocrine gland system into balance, including the thyroid, the adrenals, and the pancreas. They prefer using one product that helps put the whole system in balance rather than prescribing glandulars + bioidentical hormones for their patients.
- Patients taking bioidentical hormones need to be periodically tested and their dosages of bioidentical hormones tinkered with as the body moves through different phases. When taking a food like Royal Maca (the maca root is a cruciferous vegetable), the body utilizes this food to create a better balance.
