Hi, does anyone have a good understanding of gelatinised Maca v raw maca???? I've been taking it for hot flushes and extra energy with really good results. My concern is its from turnips and the cruciferous content. Apparently gelatinised Maca is heated so the cruciferous problem is alleviated but it also has an iodine content which I'm not sure about. Mary Shomon (thryoid advocates) takes it and recommends but would love some advice from anyone who has real experience with it. Im loathe to stop taking it when it's making me feel so much better! My Tsh is suppressed at 0.01 on 112mcg of thyroxine and my t4 and t3 are good. I did have the bloods some months ago however before taking the Maca so will get retested in a few weeks time.
