3 Wanted to Love it Posted by Victoria on 24th Jan 2023 I really, really, really, wanted this product to work for me. I bought this to try since I had previously tried a different brand and it upset my stomach. Sadly, this product did the same. About half way though my beverage, I could feel a chill come over me and my stomach started churning in a very concerning way. I barely had a tablespoon in my drink. I didn't finish it but still had stomach pain and diarrhea for 24 hours. As far as using the product, the taste was strong and while not awful, it wasn't pleasant either. While I recognize it's exactly what it's supposed to be, it was too strong for me and even if I didn't have tummy issues, I wouldn't have been able to use it as often as I had intended because of the taste. From The Maca Team: HI Victoria, this does happen to a small percentage of people, even with gelatinized products. If you still want to try maca, we suggest taking one of our liquid extracts. That won't cause any stomach upset. Let us know if you have questions.
