The powder does work. I feel more energized and I noticed a change in my sex drive. However, the taste was too bad to get over. I think I will try the capsules next.
When its Right...It's Right...Quality Product
I bought the Red Maca Root Powder about a month ago. I bought it to balance out my hormones since IÕm experiencing hormonal acne. I have seen a change in my skin and I do get energy when I take it. I have experienced calmer moods. I havenÕt been consistently taking it to reap all the benefits but I have seen some changes.
Previously had tried the Raw Organic Red Maca Powder and it worked wonders. Felt the benefits after a short time. This time I got the Gelatinized because I have a sensitive stomach but I have received absolutely no noticeable benefits from it. Only reason I took one star away.
It still tastes absolutely horrible - nothing I mix it with will disguise the taste.
Would like to try the capsules next but am concerned it wouldn't give me the benefits as the Raw and I wasted more money. Almost finished the Gelatinized so might go back to the Raw for the benefits.
IÕve heard great things about Maca Powder but the taste is so terrible I canÕt get passed it and get myself to take it everyday. I want to try the capsules instead but kind of hate the fact that I wasted $20 on the powder I wonÕt use.
I've been purchasing the Organic Gelatinized Sundried Red Maca Powder for about 8 months now and I LOVE IT! I suffer with fibromyalgia and generally have pain in all my joints. Since taking the ORGANIC GELATINIZED SUNDRIED RED MACA POWDER, my symptoms have gone. I literally cannot go without it. It has been a total life saver for me. I started out slow with just one teaspoon a day in my morning smoothie and now I'm up to 3 teaspoons a day. When I run out, I give myself a break for about a week and then order a new bag and go back on it. It's the best stuff ever. Thank you Maca Team for saving my life!
Now I had taken a maca root gelatized from another source prior to this red maca gelatinized. But this tastes much better. I so far have to take very small amounts though. So that tells me this is much stronger source.
This is really good Maca. Do yourself a favor and get some today
I had a full hysterectomy about three years ago, ovaries & all, due to severe endometriosis. While the hysterectomy helped me with the pain & issues I had relating to my endometriosis, I had no idea what the side effects of this surgery would be to my hormones, my libido, my emotional well-being, and my sex life with my husband. First came the dryness in my female area, then the painful intercourse, loss of energy, no sleeping at night, and finally sadness & depression. I tried synthetic hormones early this year, as I was feeling desperate. I had a horrible reaction to them! I then started my research to find something natural. I found an article on Maca and it suggested red maca and recommended The Maca Team for producing quality maca. I started taking the “gelatinized red maca” on April 4th and knew that I needed to give it a good 4-6 weeks. I started with a teaspoon and worked my way up to one tablespoon within a few weeks. I mix it with 2 ounces of NingXia Red Goji wolfberry juice. It does not taste terrific, but I would not stop taking it for anything. Red Maca has been a miracle for me. About 4 weeks after I started taking it, I noticed a real improvement on my energy. Two weeks after that, more energy throughout the entire day and no pain during intercourse. Hallelujah, I couldn’t believe it. I could actually have intimacy with my husband with no pain. I could not believe it, NO PAIN! The benefits of Red Maca have been incredible: I am now enjoying intimacy with my husband again - dryness is gone. My libido has improved. I have energy throughout the entire day. My hormones are balanced, as I am happier and the feelings of sadness are gone. My sleep has improved slightly, but I am still not able to sleep through the night. I will continue to work on this one! If you are having issues with menopause, I would highly suggest you try Red Maca from The Maca Team!!!
I don't think I've noticed much of a difference yet, but it's only been a couple of weeks. Love the taste of this maca though and will definitely keep taking it. It's the best I've tried!
I have had trouble with gaining weight, depression, anxiety, PMS, and irregular periods. Within 2 weeks of starting the red maca i could see an improvement. Now im at 3weeks in and its still improving! I will continue to take this
I'm a 40yr old woman and intially purchased maca for hormonal balancing. I don't suffer with mood swings or acne but figured since I'm getting older my hormones could use some help. I'm pleased to say I've noticed more energy and better sleep. I've lost a little weight and lower belly fat. This maca is a winner! The taste may take some getting used to but for anyone who's tried other brands you know this brand does taste better than others.
I love this maca! I have a medical condition that impacts my ability to digest food properly (gastroparesis), & am excited to have discovered this Gelatinized Maca. ItÕs much better for my situation & I enjoy the flavour too! Have just been adding to smoothies but plan to try in warm drinks/lattes too. :)
This maca powder has basically replaced my coffee habit. I add 1-2 teaspoons to my morning smoothie and I feel so energized for the day ahead. (I actually have to be careful not to take maca too late in the afternoon or else it will keep me up at night)
Overall, this maca powder has a great, mild taste that doesn't overpower my smoothies. I've enjoyed adding this to my daily supplement routine!
I just started using my gelatinized red maca powder, so I can't say I'm seeing any noticeable effects from it just yet. I do have high hopes that it will help with lots of my issues including acne and hormonal imbalance. I will say I'm impressed with how good it smells and how discrete it is in food and drinks. I've mixed it in smoothies, peanut butter, coconut milk, and other various foods and have not been able to taste it at all. Although stirring alone does not dissolve the contents. You must put in closed cup and shake it up. So far I'm pleased. Now just waiting to see this maca magic happen!
take a scoup of both Red and Black once to 3 times a day.
Noticed improved recall and concentration within 3 days.
these products will remain a part of my daily diet.
I received good energy with this product, however after a week or so I was unable to take it because of some allergic reaction.
I tried this and immediately felt more energy. The flavor's good and it's easy to incorporate into my food and routine. Can tell it's of a good quality. Take a look at the recipes section for ideas on how to use it!
What a difference Red Maca makes. It's the difference between night and day. Without the Maca, I experience a mild depression with a lack of energy and focus. With the Maca, I experience a balanced and energized day. Such a gentle and natural lift for the hormonal support I require. Mix the powder with water only to reap the benefits directly and quickly. Anything more, and you are giving your body more to deal with to try and access the elements that make Red Maca great.
I started taking this powder (red Gelatinized Maca) d/t significant hormonal imbalance. It has made a significant difference in my overall energy and the pain I often experienced. Love that this is a small family owned business and IÕm grateful for such a quality product with great service. If youÕre looking for a quality Maca, purchase with Maca Team.
I would love to see what benefits I can get from this product but I just can't stand the taste so haven't been able to use it! May try the capsules at a later date and see how it goes.
The Maca powder itself is very good quality and has definitely improved my female hormonal system. My period is much lighter and I don't really have any physical symptoms anymore with it. I was underweight and with a mixture of black and red powder was able to start putting on muscle within 3 days. Unfortunately international postage is extremely expensive.
I have been taking the gelatinized red maca powder every day for approximately 3 weeks. How I do it is mix 1 tablespoon each of: maca powder, cocoa powder and collagen powder in a small bowl. Add 15 grams of coconut oil, a few drops of stevia sweetener and a pinch of pink himalayan sea salt and stir. It will be thick-ish. I spread it on a small piece of foil and freeze for about a minute (can freeze for much longer if you want) and eat like chocolate bar for breakfast each day. As of now, I have seen no results at all from taking the maca. I give it 3 starts because the taste is good, and I have hope that I will eventually see results.
If there is something inherently wrong with how I'm taking it which could help to explain my lack of results (ex - does it have to be dissolved in a liquid?) please let me know.
I was asked to write this review so here it goes. I have tried the Maca powder for a while and didn't feel right. Gas, and all that. I took the red and felt a strange sensation in my lower half. I probably am not the normal cause I am sensitive to everything I put in my body. I still might try the liquid version but am tired of throwing things away and buying them again. If I could sample the red in liquid form I might try it. On the upside, the Maca Team is VERY professional and always respond and seems like a very good company. Cindy answered all my questions. For those considering Maca, this is the company for sure : )
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.
I have been struggling with fibromyalgia for years and this is the first supplement that I have found that really really helps. My energy levels are up, and my muscles actually feel better. I can definitely tell on days when I am unable to use it. And as an added bonus, the taste is absolutely amazing--very much like a sweet caramel flavor to me. I cannot say enough amazing words about this product and I am forever grateful to the maca team for what they do.
We have been using MACA for many years now. We used to have a supplier that sold us gold MACA at twice the price.
The red Maca has a better taste, is fresh, well packaged and we are dealing with friendly, loving people.
What more can you ask for?
Thanks for all you do.

I started taking Maca using 1/2 tsp once a day to help balance out my hormones and to help decrease breakout from birth control pills. I tried the raw powder but had to switch to gelatanized due to stomach cramps. I haven't had many issues on the gelatanized. I have since lost weight, I also exercise but wasn't really losing weight as much as inches prior to Maca. My skin definitely doesn't break out as much. My only concern is that my cycle has been prolonged, but this is just the first month so things may even out later.
Thank you, Maca Team! I am now expecting after taking your product for 4 weeks. I am feeling great and will continue it throughout my pregnancy. I did not care for the taste so I encapsulated it myself. Next time I will buy the capsules:)
The gelatinized red maca powder from Maca Team is the best maca I ever tried. I bought some maca at GNC and it upset my stomach so much and made me feel awful. The taste was terrible as well. I will buy again and again from Maca Team.
I have been taking The Maca Team's gelantinized red maca for 4 months and I LOVE it. My hot flashes are less and my joints feel better. I like it so much that I share it with anyone who is willing to try. Great Product!
Good quality maca. The raw maca upset my stomach, so I switched to the gelatinized. I've had no problems with it.
This is the first Maca for me. I started researching it & my searches kept landing on this website. I figured theyÕve either got some crazy intense marketing or maybe they really know their Maca. It was most definitely the latter.
IÕve been using the gelatinized (because IÕve got Òone of thoseÓ stomachs) & so far so good! I appreciate that they broke it down on their site for who should take which type. ItÕs been great in settling on my stomach (no problems at all) & IÕve noticed an increase in my energy in the first month. When I contacted them with some questions, I got an immediate & detailed response. And I just ordered another pouch! I donÕt have other products to compare it to, but my experience so far has been stellar! IÕve already been telling others about it.
The shipping was real quick. Expect to accept it between 14-21 days but it comes in less than 10 days to South Australia.
Haven't tried the product, so can't testify how it works, but I've tried it on the tip of my finger and it's just taselte like a nut powder.
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.
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!
Excellent and fast delivery
Excellent for health
Excellent in smoothies and easy to use
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.
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!
I had other maca before. I had much sideeffects or no effects, So I always must change products or discontinue. But I knew that maca is good for my problems This red maca from Macateam has very good effects and only little sideeffects in the beginning. I am so happy and will order more.
My husband and I have been using a combo of both the gelatinized red and black maca. We take approximately 1 Tb of each mixed with almond milk. Do this 4 or 5 mornings a week. We both notice that our energy is more consistent throughout the day and we are both sleeping better at night. Also less brain fog. I definitely have an increase in sex drive as well (my hubby is very happy about that
i like the product and i like the site great info well done peace
I purchased gelatinized red for an energy boost which in turn helped with mild depression. I can hardly sit still anymore and love to work on projects around the house. I find myself putting in a full day of activity and going strong until early evening. I told my doctor about how it helped me and he ordered it for his whole office. All of his staff have it every morning in their coffee. He knew of the product growing up in Peru and said his mother used to take it and she could clean a mean house. I have recommended it to others and everyone has had positive results.
I am very impressed with the maca. I heard and I read a lot about it before I have bought maca, but now I experienced everything on myself. Thanks to you my product arrived very quickly.I am very happy now and I see positive changes on my body.
I love this maca and would not switch to any other brand. It doesn't bother my tummy at all and it has a pleasant taste unlike others that I have tried. Not to mention the results are amazing! It's worth every penny for such a good quality.
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!
Very satisfied. Quality maca for a fair price. Customer service is friendly and knowledgeable.
Quality maca for a fair price.
Pleasant knowledgeable staff.
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.
Really enjoy this product have bought about 9 pounds of maca and has gave me troumendez energy, along with amazing hard-ons, love this product.

I had been trying plant based solutions for my horrible hot flash sweats and sleeplessness but they continued to worsen to the point where I would have over 40 per 24 hour period! I was miserable! Finally I stumbled upon a product with some maca root in it which got me to researching maca as a solution...and finally led me to the Maca Team web page. I did two things: I completely eliminated ALL SOY from my diet, and began taking the red gelatinized Maca powder in my oatmeal in the morning. After 10 days all my night sweats and sleeplessness, cotton mouth, hot flashes during the day completely disappeared! Nothing short of amazing! Other changes I notice include increased energy level, clearer thinking and the softest silkiest skin I have had in years. Maca has really made the difference for me!
I am taking the red Maca and do seem to have more energy. 82 years old so need all the help I can get. But a very healthy 82 years.
Dear Dr. _____,
The antibiotic finished up yesterday. The tooth pain persisted until Saturday. Then after adding (2) 375 mg Naproxen every 6 hours the hurt quieted down. With each dose of Naproxen Sherry serves up a bowl of something to off set the drug. We've had yogurt too. Come morning Ð hopefully Ð no more medications will be needed.ÊWe want to keep you posted.Ê
Because wheat products and... brought on various degrees of weakness, I considered myself allergic to gluten. The weakness ran hot and cold; sometimes it put me out of commission, other times it was hours of lethargy sitting in a chair. More on this later.
After having prostrate pains Dr. ___ in Napa, California prescribed Doxazosin, (15 years ago, not sure). When the price of that drug tripled, you changed my treatment to Terazosin. There was little difference between the two. With either drug, however,ÊI was up at least once each night. Sometime after the first of the year, we began supplementing the diet with MACA (a dried and powdered) vegetable from the turnip family. We tried several suppliers before settling on MACA TEAM. They offer several varieties so we sampled them all. One tablespoon apiece, six days a week is what we mix inÊour smoothies. My last prescription of Terazosin has not even been opened. We bought it March 11. And, if I overlooked taking that pill, the early morning would be painful to say the least. No longer do I get up during the night. Never. Not one time. There's more.
For the past 20 years Sherry has taken an over the counter menopause aid Ð Estroven, ÒMaximum StrengthÓ.ÊÊA Êpill not to overlook. TodayÊSherry keeps Estroven on hand, but takes only 1 to 3 times a month Ð usually when we forget our smoothies.
Finally, wheat no longer troubles me. Nothing I eat brings on that weak feeling. I first realized this while riding my bicycle. In times past, the legs felt like two fleshyÊ appendages pushing pedals. But that's history. Now there is strength in my legs. I am not telling you that my legs feel ÒokayÓ. No! My legs register strength.Ê MACA TEAM offers essentially three varieties of this food; regular, red and black, each having theirÊindividual properties. We settled on theÊred optionÊand are well into our third bag.ÊÊ
We take several basic vitaminsÊalong withÊa few food supplements, cayenne, turmeric and MACA. We are better from a health standpoint than we have been in years; and aside from this really crummy tooth ache, take no medications.
Thank you for the good service,
My wife is using this and she is very happy with energy boost it gives her. And there is no crash at the end of the day. Highly recommended!
I have been taking this Maca for nearly a year and am so impressed with the quality. It is a lifesaver for my hormonal imbalances, and I won't be without it. The Maca Team promotes small farmers and sustainable growing practices which is also very important to me.
I have been taking this product for about one month now and already feel so much better. My mood swings are under control. I am happy to say I do not need to be taking birth control pills and pump my body with synthetic hormones anymore. It is a great feeling to be independent of all that and feel great.
Love this supplement! Use it in my shakes and coffee! It really help normalize my moods...since I'm hitting that peri menopause stage in life. Not sure what I would do without it!
