Maca Root effects: Maca is a plant that grows in central Peru in the Andes mountains. Maca root contains fatty acids and amino acids. However, there is not enough evidence that it causes weight gain.. Patients with thyroid conditions should avoid Maca because glucosinolates taken in excess and combined with a low-iodine diet can cause goiter.
