Overall it's a great product, easy to use and mix in with your food or drink. I had heard about maca powder and was curious about it, and so far I'm pleased that, while it does add a flavor to my tea, it's not one that's unpalatable.
Overall the product tastes pretty good. I have progressed up to 1 tablespoon a day over the past 3 weeks. Unfortunately I haven't noticed any difference with any of the effects of taking MACA. I would like to say that customer service is fantastic. Great to help with quick responses. Another thing to consider is that I have not tried any other MACA products. I am still excited to take this product and will continue to use it. Hopefully I can leave another review in a month (they mention it might take up to 6 weeks to see its benefit). I am also curious to try it in recipes but not sure how much I can increase over the recommended amount per day.
Been using Maca for a year or so. I usually mix a heaping spoon full of Black Maca with water first thing in the morning before I go to the gym. I find that Black Maca gives me more energy and stamina. I'm 57 years old, and can make guys half my age "fall out" trying to out lift or out pace me in the cross-fit class I take... If I ever skip a day taking Black Maca, I feel it... the "reserves" are not in my tank. The only reason I gave the Gelatinized Black Maca 4 stars vs 5. is I prefer the "earthy taste" of the raw black maca. Both varieties work well. Look at it as a "super food", there is serious nutrition here. It works.
Right now I am mixing a half scoop of Yellow and a half scoop of Red.
Very fresh, the best maca I've used. Customer service is great and orders are filled quickly.
I've been throwing this stuff in coffee and smoothies and it's Great! Best maca on the market. Fast and friendly service.
Nice earthy taste and mixes well with water. Using 3-5 g a day and feel a boost in energy and subtle libido increase. No noticeable undesirable side effects. Prompt delivery too.
The 'ORGANIC GELATINIZED PREMIUM RED MACA POWDER' has a mild flavour and certainly is a premium product.
The delivery was very prompt and well within the dates given. The only downside to ordering this product online to Australia was the postage cost. I was going to order multiple packets but it was going to apply the postage cost of $26.27 USD to each packet.
