I use it daily. It makes me feel like a warrior-priestess .... but your mileage may vary!
It's considered one of the superfoods. It's from Peru. Yes, it's true that it's used to modulate the endocrine system; it's a powerful adaptogen.
I first heard about it when a doctor was being interviewed on Coast to Coast AM about hypothyroidism (Coast does a lot of shows about "alternative" nutrition). Someone asked him if there was one supplement to add into a daily smoothie, what would it be. Without hesitating, he said maca. I'd never heard of it, and being hypothyroid myself, I wrote the name down on a sticky note and had it on my desk for a long time before I began to look into it further.
It'll give you a lot of energy and will increase your strength. For this reason, Incan warriors took it before going into battle. It will also make you horny, so watch out! I have no idea about endometriosis, though.
It's great stuff. In my experience, it seems to do everything it purports to. I also take the raw powder, high quality.
