I'm taking Tysabri. Can I use Maca?
Maca is a Peruvian Herb with purported properties that could theoretically be beneficial to people with MS. It is said to reduce oxidative stress reactions, and this has lead some people to use it alone or in combination with other treatments for their MS. There is no current evidence of either harm or benefit in people with MS, and there is no particular reason to advocate for or against its use in people with MS.
