I am wishing for this maca to be my miracle helper Shawn on 23rd Jul 2018
I purchased this to help with menopause. I found the powder worked better for me then the pills initially. However, my hot flashes came back after about 3 weeks of using with a vengeance. I have to try to find how much I really need to be taking. It did give me energy though and felt better for the day. Unknown on 17th Jul 2018
I bought this specifically to help increase my libido. I'm menopausal age and have low estrogen. I don't know if I'm taking enough or not, but it's not clear that it's helping. I've been taking it for several weeks. I'm taking 1 1/2 tsps. with my morning shake. I hate to have to take more because of the taste. I sometimes take it combined with 1 tsp of the premium Maca which is a mix of several different roots. I think it helps my energy level overall when I take them together, but would love it if it would help my estrogen levels more. Emily on 18th Jun 2018
It matters what quality of Maca you use - this stuff is what WORKS! I took this for hormonal balance and to help with my period symptoms. I’m AMAZED 3-4 months being on this how it has drastically changed my whole life! My period symptoms went from 100% down to 30% - i feel like my life has changed. I’ve also lost weight on this! I don’t get nearly as emotional or irritable since taking maca, and my monthly symptoms all across the board have drastically decreased. I can’t do without this in my life! Thank you for making the best quality maca root out there!!! Bethany on 10th Jun 2018
It has a rather favorable pleasant taste, a generic nutty flavor and the slight tang of mustard yet on the sweet side. The cat apparently liked the smell too, because she started gnawing through the first bag, before I could rescue her from it, LOL Anyhow, It goes well with honey almond milk in particular and in a "seed smoothie" I make occasionally. It's balanced my hormones and given me a short-term boost in energy, (because I still need a nap in the middle of the day.) Unknown on 9th Jun 2018
I have been using the raw, red maca powder to control my menapausal hot flashes for a year and a half. It has been working wonderfully! It took a bit so if you try this be patient. For me it was around the 4th or 5th week of consistantly taking my daily dose when suddenly my hot flashes were gone .... and they had been no small thing. I started by over time, working up to 3 tablespoons spread out in two doses half in the morning and half at noon. I thought it best to give my body time to adjust to the maca. Three tablespoons may have been more than I needed. I don't know. But, I held it there for several months and then slowly crept down to what I am taking now which is two teaspoons a day. I take both teaspoons together anytime in the morning now that my hot flashes have leveled out. My hot flashes are now minimal. They don't happen often and if they do they are no big deal. My sleep is ever so much better!!!! I had been waking up with hot flashes 5 - 8 times a night in the beginning. Now most nights I have none. I can't say I like the taste of the maca but in cinnamon flavored apple sauce or in a smooth it's not bad. I have tried other suppliers but the quality or freshness must not have been as high as Maca Team because it didn't work as well. So, I have stuck with Maca Team. Also, I found that the gelatinized maca did not work as well for me as the raw red maca powder. Though, I have heard that is differect for different women. Tamara Anderson on 3rd Jun 2018
This is the first time I have tried the red maca and I am glad I did. I can tell the first week the difference it makes with my day to day routine. I don't sleep much but this helps me get throughout my day without winding down in the afternoon. I use it in everything I find it will taste good in, which is a-lot. I recommend this to all my friends and family and when they try it, they thank me for it. For those who don't I usually give them samples to try and most after trying notice the difference in their day to day lives and then order their own. THis is a great product and I plan to use it for a long time..... Unknown on 20th Apr 2018
I was doing an online, liver reset program with Izabella Wentz, PharmD for folks with Hoshimoto's Thyroiditis. She recommended The Maca Team for high quality maca. I took the company's online quiz, and ended up with Red Maca before reading further Dr. Wentz only recommends the lightest color maca for folks with Hoshimoto's. Unfortunately, there are no free returns, and It would have cost me $12 to ship the 1 lb. bag back,.After reading up on the website some more, I decided to use it for my husband. I add it to his smoothies for prostate health. He just had shoulder surgery, so I thought it might be helpful with him needing to get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I think it just may be working, thought it's only been a week or so. I may order the gelatinized light color maca at a later date. Unknown on 20th Apr 2018
Good service. Recommendable. I use the powder; the taste is somehow bitter but I add some sugar/sweetener and try to mix it really well like in a blender if possible, and the taste is very acceptable. Also, a piece of bread can help. Miguel Petrozzi on 26th Mar 2018
I have been using the red maca for menopausal hot flashes now for about a year and a half. When I began my hot flashes were pretty bad. I was getting several during the day and several during the night. It was not possible to get adequate sleep any longer. I tried the raw red Maca in powder form and in about five weeks my hot flashes slipped away quite suddenly. I began with quite a bit ... 3 tablespoons a day spaced out half in the morning and half at about noon. I was very regular about it. I was tempted to give up but I had read other reviews that stated they had kept it up for a few weeks and then suddenly their hot flashes abated. I am glad I persisted because that is exactly what happened to me too. Of course, it did not entirely eliminate my hot flashes. But, I was okay with that because they were not nearly as frequent nor as intense when they did happen. I kept at it with 3 tablespoons a day until I felt I was pretty stable then I gradually decreased the amount ... very slowly. A year and a half later I am down to one table spoon a day taken only in the morning and my hot flashes are minimal and my sleep has returned. I did try and creep down to 2 teaspoons and was fine but hit a stressful patch in my life and had to take it back up to a full tablespoon to take care of the hot flashes. The reason that I was interested in the Maca largely because I was informed that it does not have any estrogen or phytoestrogen in it. It simply works to balance my bodies ability to manage its own hormones. My theory is that my own hormones are best for me and empowering my body to manage its own production and regulation of my hormones is probably better too. Of course, I do not know that this is a medical fact ... its just my theory. So far this theory and the maca have improved how I feel and have significantly reduced my hot flashes. By the way, the Maca team has always delivered reliably and on time. lastly, I have tried other suppliers for my raw red maca and my results have not been as good. I do not know why. I have read that maca needs to be fresh to be potent. Perhaps this is it? I only know that from my experience all maca is not equal. Unknown on 23rd Mar 2018
