5 Yellow Maca Root Powder Posted by Neal on 29th Jan 2023 I'm 74 yrs old in good health, take no prescription meds. Last year my Dr told me my blood pressure was high? I exercise, eat healthy but it was still high. He wanted to put me on meds, I said I wanted to try a natural approach first. I started using ground Flaxseed in a nightly smoothie. Took 6 weeks and my blood pressure started falling more every week. Read about Maca and decided to add it to my nightly smoothie. In the first week my blood pressure dropped MORE than it had with Flaxseed alone. Besides all the benefits of both Flaxseed and Maca, together I think they compliment each other. If you have high BP give them a try, what do you have to lose?
