Because Maca is a food, you can't really overdose on it like you would with an herb or supplement. However, some people experience minor side effects when they take too much Maca. We recommend starting with a low dose and working your way up to give your body time to adjust. When deciding how much is right for you to take in a day, take your personal statistics like weight and age into account. Smaller or older people should take less, while younger and bigger people can take more. In general, the younger and healthier you are, the more Maca powder you can take a day.

As a base line for your maca powder dosage, we recommend taking 1-3 tsp or 4-12 capsules of maca daily.  You can adjust the amount you take based on your personal needs. You can learn more about serving recommendations on this page of our website, too. If you ever have questions about maca or still aren't sure how much maca powder you should be taking each day, just give us a call.
