In brief: MACA is GREAT
www.pubmed.gov; only a few studies have been performed but both these and ethnobotanical experience show this herb to be effective in treating sexual dysfunction including that which is related to side effects of anti-depressants.
Very few negative effects are reported and they are vague. Some suggestion of interference in thyroid patients is postulated.
