I am not sure why some women believe whole heartily that something you eat like maca root which is a type of radish root and aguaje a type of palm fruit both native to Peru magically enhances the curves of the female body. NO food or drink naturally from this earth has any type of hormone in it. Hormones, that being estrogen and testosterone are the only things which will make you bigger just by taking it alone. Examples of this are steroids which increase your testosterone levels and studies have shown that taking steroids ALONE makes you bigger without having to exercise or increase your calories. Another type of hormone drug that directly acts on hormones is birth control pills. Birth control acts on estrogen hormones usually changing a woman's menstrual cycle and almost always causing a woman's breast to enlarge along with general weight gain around the lower stomach and hips. These drugs do this because they were created to act on hormones or increase your hormone levels. Both birth control and steroids are made in laboratories and are not found naturally in nature and you can not legally purchase them unless you have a prescription from a doctor.
Now the argument that these naive women are using is saying maca root gave them a bigger butt so it must work, when these woman know there are many variables that have to be controlled before you can claim maca root did in fact increase the size of your butt. You have to eliminate any type of exercise and monitor your calorie number every day to make sure you do not eat more calories. You also have to be older than the puberty age because the female body is still growing and changing up until the age of 21. You also can not be on any hormone related drugs like birth control. If you control all of these factors and than take maca root for a period of time and you see your hip size get bigger, than you have the credibility to say maca root gave you a bigger butt. Otherwise, you have no clue what factor gave you a bigger butt so these women just say it was the maca root when 99% of the time it was them eating more and exercising while the maca root acted like a placebo.
And this is no coincidence. Almost every maca root website I have been to not only tells its customers to buy maca root but also says to perform special butt exercises and to eat special foods like jams to get a bigger butt. Of course, they say this in the fine print and under a whisper and shout out with a loud voice about maca root being the primary method to getting a bigger butt.
Now their so called scientific argument to say maca root and aguaje act on your estrogen hormones is because they contain photoestrogens which in "theory" is suppose to help balance or regulate the estrogen in women creating a more hourglass body by rerouting estrogen or increasing estrogen, thus, creating bigger butts & breast, although, their isn't one credible scientific study to prove this. You can search the internet right now and you will not find any scientific study on maca root or aguaje that reportedly increases the curves of females. You will only find websites by women selling the product and showing you before and after pictures of random women.
So why are these people claiming this remarkable power maca root and aguaje are suppose to have?
Well, one reason is simply to make more money and create a more versatile product. Most of the people pushing maca root and aguaje also sell the products as a hair improvement remedies. What better than to say the same product used for your hair can also increase the size of the female curves. Something you would hear from a witch doctor or something. I have no clue why these women believe this, although, I must say most of the women who do are fairly young and are still in their adolescent years. Just think, there are some young women who still believe bust creams can enlarge their breast size. Same reasoning. (I have no beef with the maca root or anything else in the use of hair products as many hair products are created with the use of natural foods, which sometimes are the main ingredient in the hair product).
The other reason is from folklore. Stories have made their way out of Peru claiming again without scientific evidence that aguaje and maca root which are both rare Peruvian foods are the sole means to which Peruvian women have developed their curves. I admit, some (and the keyword is "some") Peruvian women have beautiful bodies, well the younger Peruvian women that is, the older ones do not. Is it because of the maca root and aguaje which virtually everyone eats in Peru or is it becasue the younger Peruvian women are more knowledgeable about what types of foods to eat, have access to more nutritional foods, and know how valuable exercise is to the body. I believe this makes more sense to why some of the younger Peruvian women look very good since aguaje has been eaten in Peru for hundreds of years and is not recent to the diet of Peruvians. But some Brazilian women look good as well along with Colombian women, Cuban women, the list goes on and on because every country just about has some women who look fairly curvy. So is it the food or the genetics? Yes, its the genetics as always. Most Latina women tend to be more hourglass or pear shaped and have larger anterior pelvic tilts which give them the ability to create smaller waist lines, larger butts & thighs, larger hip bones and more visible butts by having a larger anterior tilt. Now I must say that aguaje and maca root are very beneficial for the skin (which I will discuss in my upcoming "cellulite" video on YouTube) and good looking skin creates very appealing bodies. This is another reason why some of the Peruvian women look good.
The only study that I have found that looks at how aguaje interacts with estrogen is a study done on rats that you can view at this linkhttp://food-nutrition.factoidz.com/tropical-fruit-moriche-or-aguaje-superfood-from-the-amazon-rainforest/. The study showed that when rats where given aguaje their estrogen levels went down NOT up. So the aguaje actually had a negative affect on estrogen contrary to what these people pushing maca root and aguaje are saying. The only reason some doctors are using maca root and aguaje is because these photoestrogens present in these foods somehow have the ability to act similar to estrogen in helping menopause, regulating a women's period, making a women more fertile, and increasing energy, ALL things I mentioned in my "Maca Root" video and reasons someone may look to take these supplements or food.
It is funny to see some of these YouTube videos claiming maca or aguaje gave them a bigger butt. The YouTubers post their before and after pictures and yes their buttocks did get bigger. However, what else got noticeably bigger was their waist line. They all created fatter bellies. What is the point of increasing your butt size if your stomach just gets fatter? No point of having a large stomach just so you can have a large butt. You know there is a reason why supermodel women in SI magazines are still the most desirable women for most men in America. It is because they have good size breast and they have very small waist lines. Their waist lines are very noticeable. This makes the female appear healthy, athletic, and feminine since the female will be at a lighter body weight. They may not have curves, but you can see most males do not care, they care about the waist line. Women who can develop curves without compromising their waist lines, creating waist lines BELOW 30 inches, they are the only ones who can trump these supermodel bodies and of course having a toned body too. But this just shows you that these women ate more calories and increased their hip and waist line measures and of course doing it without proper exercise or knowing about their genetics. You can say the aguaje and maca root helped increase your energy and that made you eat more. But you could have just eaten more too.
Another funny thing is some of these women have even taken aguaje in protein shakes, taking 2 per day. You know that you already added over 300 calories to your diet everyday and that is only if you take the shakes in water. And than they go and perform low intensity butt exercises which do not burn that many calories, yet they will still get hungry because they are working out so they will eat an extra meal. So this person with an extra meal and the protein shakes will add roughly 800 calories to her diet almost every day. And you guessed it, in 1 to 2 months time she would have put on some weight and her hip size and waist line would have gotten bigger. Thus, the maca root or aguaje acted as a placebo since it did not directly create a bigger buttocks but gave the illusion that is was creating a bigger butt since it was taken during the process.
So I guess I could go with the flow and say maca root and aguaje can help you increase your appetite which will make you eat more and thus your hip size will get bigger. If you want to take maca root and think it will help you increase your appetite so you can eat more if you have a problem eating more food, than go ahead and do so, I stated this in my "Maca Root" video. But do not say the maca root, aguaje, or anything else that is not a hormone gave you a bigger butt ALONE, becasue that is not possible and has not been proven up until this date.
