Anyone know why it's not recommended during pregnancy?

I know that for women who consume maca as part of heir regular diet they eat it all the way through pregnancy. As far as I know there is just no data.

Thanks! The more I research it the more comfortable I am with continuing to take it through my pregnancy. My midwife is comfortable with it!

my 3rd pregnancy was maca filled.  i didn't know it wasn't recommended!  i loved it, and my 3rd baby was amazing (still is).  also had raw cacao a lot during that pregnancy.  and kombucha.  yeah, i'm bad at stopping what i like just b/c someone thinks it might not be safe.

 

i think it's the data thing.  but that said, those of us who do some of these things don't want to give out data b/c people are already watching us w/ upraised eyebrows!!!
