    1. Energy booster and great taste

      I have noticed positive changes since taking the red maca. I have more energy, I am not experiencing the frequent mood changes that come with menopause. It actually has a good taste. I have not experienced any negative side effects either. on 1st May 2017

    2. Good quality

      Good quality maca. The raw maca upset my stomach, so I switched to the gelatinized. I've had no problems with it. on 10th Jun 2016

    3. Enjoying it so far!

      So far this product has been great. I'll probably order the capsules next time just because it'll be easier to take. I did notice I was bloated the first 2 days I took it, but that's because I mixed it in with my morning milkshake, after that I just took it in my water bottle and problem solved. The reason why Im not giving it a 5start, yet is, my doctors appointment isn't in a month or so, then I'll know if it helped my thyroid issue. on 10th May 2016

    4. Love my Maca

      I've been using the yellow maca for quite some time. I enjoy mixing it in my Bulletproof tea and my hubby uses it his morning smoothie or Bulletproof coffee. I recently learned that I have a goiter so I switched to the red maca as that is recommended in these circumstances. Love the taste and energy that this quality maca provides! on 1st May 2016

    5. Great tasting

      I've been using this product for several months now and I feel there is a difference. It tastes great and gives me a little pick me up when I need one. Naturally without caffeine. I add it to my matcha green tea lattes and smoothies. on 22nd Jan 2016

    6. Delicious and Energizing!

      I really can't describe this product better than what the Maca Team already does on their site. I can, however, definitely say that it does all they claim and tastes wonderful -- I LOVE the caramel-like taste in my morning smoothies. I've even used it in hot cereals (cream of buckwheat, oatmeal, etc), as well as puddings -- delicious and SO good for you. This company is also just wonderful -- everything about them from where they source, their philosophy on production, and how detailed, prompt, and friendly their customer service is. They have an Amazon storefront called Five Foods LLC, which is going to have more products (in addition to Maca) later this year, and I'm very excited to begin purchasing from there as well. Definitely an impressed, grateful, and loyal customer! on 5th Jan 2016

    8. It's helping with the hot flashes!

      I am 55 and started having frequent, intense hot flashes more than a year ago, suffering the sleep disturbances and reduced quality of life that go along with them. For almost a year I took low-dose birth control pills for relief, but when the prescription ran out I decided to find a non-pharmaceutical solution. About a month ago, I decided to give The Maca Team's red maca a try after experimenting with many other natural remedies (apple cider vinegar, black cohosh, fish oil, progesterone cream, various vitamins and minerals ...) with limited success. At this point I feel ready to say that this is that rare product that actually helps significantly.

      Following The Maca Team's advice, I started out with a small amount and gradually increased the daily dose. I am now taking 3 teaspoons total per day (1 1/2 teaspoons in the morning and the same amount in the afternoon). I experience very few hot flashes during the day, although I'm still getting several per night. As an experiment, I tried upping the daily amount to 2 tablespoons -- 1 tablespoon first thing in the morning and another in mid-afternoon. After each dose, I enjoyed 6 hours completely hot flash-free! The downside was that I had trouble getting to sleep at night, so I've gone back to 3 teaspoons per day. I'll continue fine-tuning the amounts and times until I find what works best for me.

      I have also experimented with how I take the maca. My favorite way is to put it into a mug, pour hot tea over it and stir till the maca is completely dissolved, and then add a splash of almond milk. I think it tastes great this way!

      I just placed another order for red maca -- this time the raw kind, to see if I notice any difference -- and fully expect to experience continued benefits from it. Thank you, Maca Team!

    9. AWESOME!!

      I ordered the red gelatinized maca for myself after doing alot of research to find out what would help my out of control hormones, breakouts, mood swings, irregular menstrual cycles etc. After about 5 days I could tell a slight difference in my mood and energy. Now I've been taking maca every morning for about a month. I've noticed more of a change in energy, better sleep, increased libido, better focus, less breakouts, even better stabilized mood and with my first cycle it was actually more on the "normal" side. I'll continue to take maca and have been recommending it to a lot of my friends and family. I'll be ordering more soon. on 28th Sep 2015
