1. Does it also have uses beyond food?
Absolutely! You can dilute Maca powder in distilled water and spritz over skin to help protect it from UV radiation. The protective effect was attributed to the polyphenol antioxidants and glucosinolates found in maca.
2. Any specific safety precautions?
While it is generally safe for consumption, people with thyroid issues might want to be careful with maca because it contains goitrogens, substances that may interfere with the normal function of the thyroid gland. These compounds are more likely to affect you if you already have impaired thyroid function.
