Maca works according to the needs of the body. It does not work individually but rather it adapts to the body condition and then it works in accordance with the body system. If in a body, there is the production of too much of a kind of hormone then maca regulars the production and dampens the same and if in some other body there is a lack of some kind of hormone then it regulates that gland helps in proper secretion of that particular hormone. In short, it works differently in different bodies and the way that is best for the body.

Around 20 grams of maca contains 100 micrograms of iodine and one needs around 150 micrograms of iodine into the body on a daily basis. If a person is taking maca on a daily basis they do not have to bother about the thyroid gland of their body.
