    Was very effective for combating the sexual side effects of SSRI's

    I bought this for my girlfriend because her sex drive was all but gone since getting on SSRI medication for anxiety. She started taking 9 grams a day and after about 7-10 the results were quite effective! This has helped restore her sexual desire to it's normal level so far and it's been about 2 months that she's been on it. She typically takes the 9 grams of maca along with 25mg of DHEA 5-6 days a week, and then takes a day or two off to insure that the tolerance doesn't because a problem. So far so good. The only thing she doesn't care for is the taste of the powder, I think that is just a personal thing though, because I tried some as well and it tasted quite fine to me as far as supplements go.

    Red Maca Powder

    I am putting 1 tsp of Maca in my morning blended coffee, I am getting used to the new taste, but I cannot get the Maca to completely disolve in the blender. I add a little water to the cup & drink what remains in my cup.

    This product Rocks

    I developed severe menopause symptoms aboutvthree years ago. I tried other products, including more expensive remedies. None of them worked. I read an email about adding NACA to a smoothie for weightloss. I bought red NACA and have been using it since! No morechot flashes, sleeplessness, night sweats, or other troublesome symptoms. I like that it is natural and hormone free. Works wonderfully. Thanks Maca Team!

    Best Maca I Have Ever Used

    It may just be because this is the first time I am using Red Maca, but the effect has been fabulous! Energy is stable. urination less frequent, and overall just feeling good. The price was great, the packaging was great and the quality is great! What more can one say?

  • Unknown 26th Jun 2017

    Red Maca

    Although I go to Peru yearly, and always buy maca in bulk in the Central Market in Cusco, I had never before been aware of Red Maca. After I returned from my most recent journey, I realized that the kilo of maca that I had bought in Cusco seemed stale. So, I looked into The Maca Team's products, and ordered their Red Maca. I have found it to indeed be good for the prostate, as well as tasting nice and fresh, the way that maca is supposed to taste. It's packaging is excellent, and it arrived very promptly and carefully.

    Maca fan

    Red Raw Maca was my first Maca experience and I felt the difference in my body in a couple of days. I measure the effectiveness of Maca from my palm sweating more than usual. I am 5'3" and weighs about 115 lbs and I was taking probably close to 30 g per day when I started. Now I've read this website and am taking about 7g per day. It smells like something burnt but it mix well with the cocoa powder in my morning smoothies.

    Works for your body but tastes horrible

    I am generally someone that for the sake of health I will tolerate the not so pleasant flavor of foods but this one is unbearable for me and unfortunately I followed the company's suggestion to get the 1KG bag but now it's going to waste. I have been trying for two weeks to find different ways to tolerate it. I've used the cinnamon as they suggested, tried it with juice, almond milk, etc etc but still nothing. It doesn't have a mild nutty taste to me, it almost has a peppery taste and I think the worst part is that it doesn't really seem to dissolve so towards the end of drinking I have a lot of grainy product left over. It helped with my hormones in the short time, but I really cannot handle this product at all. I wish I had followed my mind and taken a smaller bag so I would have such a huge waste of money and product :(

    It's ok but...

    To be honest I think the taste gets me more then anything! It taste like I'm drinking dirt! I can't seem to get it to mix in with my water! I don't know if I've been drinking it long enough to really tell a difference so it's the taste that is reason behind my 3 star rating

    Who needs coffee!

    So I read up on Maca powder and decided to try it. There are many health promotions out there many of which I find do not work but this stuff is amazing period I had to very low energy levels until I started taking a teaspoon of this powder in the morning. Within about an hour I was energized. I noticed that I start talking a lot because I have so much energy. It just kind of funny. I also become more alert and focused. I suspect there are other advantages to this powder like bone strength but I have not been tested . I do work out 3 to 4 times a week. I am 61 years old. My daughter just not conceived easily so I am going to recommend the powder to her. I will let you know what happens.

    Still Waiting for Results

    I've heard positive things about Maca from friends and found The Maca Team. I've been taking the recommended amount (1 teaspoon daily) in hopes of increasing my libido, but am still waiting to notice a change. The site recommends taking it for 6 weeks to clearly see the result; I'm probably at 3 weeks. Fingers crossed.

    Raw red maca powder too soon to rate with ^^^^

    I purchased this product to help with osteoporosis. It is too soon to comment on any results. I mix it with almond or coconut milk to thin it out. Sometimes I mix it with a small amount of plain yogurt but of course it then is quite thick. Either way I have not experienced stomach issues nor am I bothered by the taste. Staff responded the same or next day to questions I posed via email.

    My Menopausal Hot Flash Remedy

    I am a 53 year old woman and have been transitioning into menopause. I had been getting frequent hot flashes that would wake me at night .... over and over. Ugh! For health reasons I wanted something that was not an estrogen or a phytoestrogen so I chose maca. I did try other brands but they didn't work nearly as well. Not sure why, but there it is anyways. I used it consistently and in 4 to 5 weeks my hot flashes stopped. I switched to another brand and they came back again so I switched back to the maca team brand. It took about 4 weeks of consistent use but here I am again hot flash free. About 2 or 3 weeks after I stopped getting hot flashes I experienced some breast tenderness so I scaled back the amount I was taking. That seems to have done the trick. I started with more than was recommended ... about 3 tablespoons in a smoothy daily. I have scaled back to 2 tablespoons daily. I plan on reducing ... very gradually and slowly daily intake again just to see how much I really need to be taking to keep my hot flashes away. Being able to sleep is such a relief!!!

    My favorite MACA

    I started using Maca a couple years ago and just tried this one (and this brand- the sampler pack) last year. The red maca is my favorite :) I like Maca with Chia and raw organic Cacao and hemp protein powder or sometimes with OJ or even with a little lemon water. The red one seems a little sweeter and I like that too. Overall It just makes me feel good when I have it daily. Great stuff. Great brand. Definitely an effective adaptogen for my mood and energy. Thank you!!!!!

    Magic Powder

    I am really happy that I chose the Maca Team, today you can find many distributors selling Maca powder, however quality of the powder is impossible to compare. Moreover, the results after 2 weeks I could feel. Before I was taking maca powder and I did not feel any changes. But since I started taking Maca from Maca Team are incredible. So, I did a test..:) I gave the powder to my partner ... and after 2 weeks he was impressed and told me that he has more energy, feeling happy... Thank you The Maca Team!!!!

    LOVE it!

    I began using the Premium Maca Blend about a month or so ago and absolutely love it. When I told my boyfriend all the benefits of Maca, including prostate health, he went and took the little questionnaire to find out which Maca was right for him. It indicated Red Maca, and he has loved it as much as I love mine. It is such a great energy booster too!

    We both eased our way into adding it to our morning smoothies, because of the strong taste - the Premium is much stronger than the Red. And after just a week I was adding 2 tsp to the smoothie and now I am up to 3 teaspoons in my smoothie. It takes getting used to, but it is very much worth it!

    Maca Powder for hormone balance

    I've been taking maca powder for a year. I started with the yellow because i had a coupon and have now switched to the red because they say for hormone balance thats the one for women. I haven't noticed a difference between the two but since taking the powder I have noticed an increase in libedo and less mood swings. Will take this stuff for life! Fast shipping and nice tasting.

  • Unknown 29th Jan 2017

    Not the tastiest product but

    The red Maca taste very beety but inside a smoothie that consists of banana, cocoa powder, and almond milk , DELICIOUS. And maca gives me better curve definition around my hip area. Just be sure not to take maca during that time of the month . Although I've heard maca helps soothe PMS , it only made mine worse. Overall great product and worth it .

    Keeps me balanced!

    I have been using Red Raw Maca for about 1 year and I have seen a big difference in my menopause symptoms. While at first it stopped my hot flashes, which was the reason I started in the first place, they did return but only a few a day as opposed to 20+ a day. My moods are more balanced, my facial skin is still supple, I have more energy than people 30 years my junior.
    I take 3 teaspoons a day in 4 oz of applesauce. My wake up instead of coffee, without the jitters! I do skip one day a week as suggested.

    Like the health benefits and notice improvement especially in strength of nails and increase energy but having problems getting the powder to dissolve in my smoothies dispite using a ninja blender. I will probably purchase again but will try the capsules. I do not like the chalkiness of adding this in my drinks. Tried to exchange but was told that is not an option.

    Love Red Maca

    I started with the red maca capsules, but taking 10-12 a day was to much so switched to the powder. I really love it. I am on my second month. I was taking pain pills for cramps every 4 hours for the first 2 day. The first cycle on the maca i only took 3 pills total. That is huge.Cramps weren't as bad as they were before.That was the main reason to take the red maca.
    I love the energy I get from it. My hair and nails are growing like crazy. My skin looks better

    I absolutely recommend this product. The price is affordable, the packaging is informative just like the website, I haven't had any side effects, it taste good blended into a smoothie, no after taste. I do suggest for fitness purposes, that a good detox is done before taking this product. I'm transitioning to vegan and in the morning (6:00am for me) I drink a Maca smoothie on a empty stomach followed by a bottle of water. I have great natural energy all day, and no bad food cravings that can hinder my new diet and fitness goals.!! BTW I'm from New Orleans home of some of the best restaurants! (LoL) Thanks to THE MACA TEAM for sharing such a great product and I hope you enjoy your Max's as much as I do.!!

    My hot flashes are gone!

    When I ordered the Red Maca powder, I was having 5 to 20 hot flashes a day. I prayed that God would lead me to a natural solution for this problem. I'm 51 years old now, and starting menopause. I was thrilled when my maca order arrived! I add 1 1/2 teaspoon of the maca powder to my breakfast smoothie. Later in the day, I add 1 1/2 teaspoon of the maca powder to a glass of chocolate almond milk, along with a frozen banana in the vitamix blender. It's been the answer to my prayers! Almost all the hot flashes have ceased. I am so grateful for the red maca powder. It is wonderful that I'm sleeping through the night, without waking up with hot flashes. And those awful hot flashes during the day are practically gone as well. Thank you, Maca Team, for this wonderful product.

    I have been using Red Maca from The Maca Team for about 6 months now. The results are incredible! It only took a week to feel some difference but within two weeks I felt a significant difference. My hot flashes are G-O-N-E when I eat this product daily. My mental clarity is significantly improved and my mood is sunnier & more positive. I was so impressed by this product I have shared it with my sister and my daughters.

    My daughters began using it about three months ago. They were impressed by how much better they feel. They tell me that it relieves many of their menustral symptoms (gloominess, fatigue, cramps) and depression symptoms. One said to me that she can tell a difference immediately if she forgets to take it.

    This product IS actually amazing, I have tried other Macas (my sister shared another brand that she was using with some limited results - but I used it and it didn't help at all) and this product has such a significant result for me that none of those compare!

    Love this product!

    I stumbled upon the Maca root powder, while researching for a remedy to help with hot flashes. I tried flaxseed oil and other natural products, but the intensity never diminished. I was skeptical at first but decided to try it.
    I have found that the Maca powder has helped tremendously. I'm not waking up every 30 minutes in the middle of the night. The intense, overwhelming feeling, as a hot flash surfaces, are not noticed anymore. I am so HAPPY with this powder, I caught myself sharing the web information with a parent. I told her to try it because so far nothing else came close to the relief I feel. I'm just not feeling the flashes anymore. It didn't happen over night but I would say with in a few days I was feeling different.
    I'm only using a teaspoon a day, in my morning organic tea, along with half & half and Madhava agave sweetener. I'm not drinking as much coffee any longer but have organic tea 3 to 4 times a day.
    I've also used it in my morning smoothies when I have time to make them. Otherwise it's easy to use in my tea. By the way, Your hot chocolate recipe is delicious!
    I have so much more energy and clarity at work. I've seen a change in my attitude at work and that love of working with my students has returned. I'm looking forward to trying the other Maca powders as well.

    Maca Powder

    I have been using the powder since June and I am still having hot flashed every couple hours. I am using 3 teaspoons a day and taking one day off per week. Should I increase the amount of powder? I am grateful to be off the HRT pills but the hot flashed are getting a bit too much.
    Thanks for any input you have.

    Terrific for hot flashes

    I started using the red maca for hot flashes at night and to increase my libido. After one day, I was sleeping through the night, no more nighttime power surges! I started with one and a half teaspoons a day and am gradually increasing it now that I know it agrees with my stomach. Am still waiting to see if my libido will increase, will keep experimenting with the dosage and giving it time to 'do its thing'. It's been less than a month. I also notice that I no longer have an energy crisis in the afternoon, definitely made a difference in that area.
    The taste isn't too bad, I usually mix it with either my morning yogurt or oatmeal. To me, it tastes like a cross between a malted milk ball and cinnamon, so it lends a slightly cinnamon taste to the oatmeal. It goes well with prune juice, also. Have already recommended this product to two friends.

    Muy buena

    La compro desde Espa–a, pues ahora no encuentro maca roja y esta es de la mejor calidad que hay.
    El œnico problema es que me sale muy caro por los portes. Espero que en un futuro sea m‡s barato

    You got the love the Maca from the Maca Team

    I got introduced to Maca a few years back but a tiny bottle at a local health food store and did like it. Then I found the website from the Maca team and call them great customer service fast service and I felt honesty with what they told me. I started on the red organic raw Maca. Put it in our smoothie that I also gave to my husband.
    I am back working out with weights in the gym early morning (5.30am)
    I was due for a new large back of my Organic Raw Maca and decided to ask regarding the black Maca. I ended up ordering 1 bag of the organic Raw Black Maca and 1 bag organic Raw Red Maca.
    We really like the black Maca along with the red.
    I use one teaspoon of black maca along with my organic wheatgrass powder in Manitou mineral water to work out. Then I have a smoothie after workout with 1 teaspoon of the black Maca and my husband has a smoothie with a black Maca for his breakfast.
    I am a plant food eater and use the red Maca in my bean dips, hummus dips and veggie/ chili dips. It is so so good.
    The black maca I use in my coconut milk frozen desserts my avocado frozen desserts and almond banana soft serve ice cream.
    Actually like the black Maca for that a bit better I must say.
    Hope you get adventurous with the Maca,
    I have not tried the yellow marker yet.

    Definitely Different

    I've tried various maca brands over the last 20 years and The Maca Team brand is very special. There is definitely a difference when it comes to the quality and colors of the maca. This red maca does seem to nourish certain parts of my body while the black maca nourishes something else.

    I know I've been missing the nutrition these maca provide. I'm 75 years old and bodies wear out, but I'm finding I'm regaining a functioning body. How wonderful is this?!?!!!

    Not for everyone

    I decided to try this product for hair loss. I started to lose my hair during perimenopause, it has gradually worsened over the years. I thought that balancing my hormones would help. I started taking this in hopes of helping with this issue. Instead of it helping it made the issue worse. I have had twice the hair loss. I stopped taking it but the hair loss remains excessive, i am hoping that with time it will at least return to the level it was prior to taking this product.I also have a history of endometriosis and the pain I previously experienced started to return while on this product. I am sure it is a great product for some people but it didn't help me.

    Ladies, this product WORKS!!

    I began using this product several months ago to manage menopause symptoms. I noticed an improvement within one week, and a signficant change within a month, but I never liked the taste. I started off mixing it with apple juice but I still didn't like it. One day my son drank my last bottle of juice, so out of desperation (I could've choked that kid of mine), I threw some in the blender with a half of lemon and some spring water. Not too bad, but I got tired of taking it due to the taste. After two months of not using maca, the symptoms came back with a vengeance! I immediately re-ordered and started mixing the powder with freshly squeezed citrus juice, which made it much more palatable. The symptoms have decreased tremendously! Maca is now one of my daily staples. Ladies, try this product! It helps with the menopause symptoms we talk about - AND THOSE WE DON'T...!! Here's my Morning Jumpstart recipe:
    1 TBS Red Maca Root Powder
    1 juiced ruby red grapefruit
    1 juiced orange
    1 juiced lime
    1 juiced lemon
    1 TBS Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar (optional)
    Mix until all powder is dissolved or place in blender for 30 seconds. Drink or sip through a straw.

    Definitely helps

    After tragedy hit my family, of many things that got shaken up and messed up, one was my hormones. Everything in my life was completely haywire and suddenly also my cycles etc were too. I guess it shouldn't be surprising. I couldn't change or manage so much of what was going on, but after a while I tried to tackle a few of the areas where I might be able to do something. Red maca has helped me tremendously. My hormones have evened out, I have noticed more obvious fertility signs, and my normally somewhat irregular periods that were suddenly aaaaall over the place have become the most regular they have ever been. I even became pregnant with our bonus baby when age wise (42) and stress wise, it seemed that wouldn't and couldn't ever happen again. This baby has brought smiles and lightness back into our family that I didn't imagine I would ever see again. I feel less trepidation moving forward into the years of menopause etc, down the line with red maca on my side. It is filling in some gaps I apparently had. I absolutely dislike the taste. But I mix it with a couple ounces of juice or something and chug it down like a shot. Totally worth it.

    The best Maca I've tried

    My naturopath tested me for this product and said I should take 8 grams, which works out to be two level teaspoons. I mix it with water and add a little hot water to the top of the glass. I stir it well, and though I might need to add a bit of water to the final few grains, I find this is the easiest way to take it. The taste is sweet, and believe me I have tried a few other Maca powders which were far more unpalatable! It tastes like a 'real' and 'pure' product and so I believe I'm getting what I paid for. Since I have it shipped to Australia, the price is not insignificant, with the exchange rate and postage. But I think it is worth it. I take it for my bones and my hormonal profile. I am a 62 year old woman with osteoporosis and Type 2 Diabetes, but despite these two factors, I am fit and well.

  • Unknown 11th Jul 2016


    I have been taking the Maca powder 3t a day for about a month. I have been weaning myself off of the HRT pills I have been taking for about 6 years. I am still having hot flashes so I don't know if I should increase the amount of Maca I am taking or if I should wait a while longer to see if the flashing gets less frequent.

    Gotta Have It!

    Lov your M pwd. I absolutely eat at least 1Tablesp./day, and put several in my raw bar recipes,oatmeal,smoothies,anything I can think of. Its supposed to be good for hormones, &since I have thyroid problems I take daily. The flavor reminds me of graham crackers I used to eat as a kid(I'm 56)&it will forever be a staple in our extremely healthy lifestyle. Thank you for selling in bulk, since no one comes close to your price per oz. It is absolutely delicious,which is what unhealthy eaters don't realize about healthy superfoods!!! As soon as I'm running low, I will be ordering again from your company. Thank you! Sincerely,Rhonda

    No stomach problems

    i praise and thank God, I ordered the raw Red Maca powder and then read reviews that one should never injest raw Maca. I think next time I want to choose the cooked kind, but, I thank God, I have not had stomach problems with this. I have been taking about a tablespoon a day. I started taking it in the Holy Month of Ramadan, so I have been fasting in the day, all the nights that I have started taking it. I feel very good, but a little weak, however, I have been fasting, without any food or drink from dawn to sunset for 25 days now. I am almost finished with the bag of Red Maca, and plan to buy the gelatinized red kind next time from you. I want to see how I feel taking the gelatinized Red Maca while not fasting. I wish you well.

    Great product!

    I've ordered other maca powders before and they often lack color and scent...not this stuff! I've been using this daily for about a month now and I can definitely feel a difference in my energy levels. I was breaking out under my neck and chin- which according to Chinese medicine relates to hormonal imbalance- but since using the red maca that has cleared up without any topical products. I often get maca powder from my peruvian relatives when they visit, but since discovering this product I don't have to wait for them to visit and it seems fresher than what they bring me sometimes! Unfortunately, my second order burst in the shipping package during shipping but all it took was one email to the maca team and they shipped a new one immediately! Amazing customer service!

    Good for what ails you

    I have had a hard time getting into the habit of using the maca powder, as I do not have a blender to mix it up. And the whisk is too big to fit in the glass I use. Therefore, I have to put my juice in a bowl, whisk, then pour it into a glass, a bit of a bother.

    That said, because of my inconsistency, I cannot determine if there are any effects for me. But I will persist.

    In orange juice, the taste is sufficiently masked to be palatable.

    Great product!

    After using this Red Maca powder for a couple of weeks, I felt more energized and healthy. So much so that I ordered a Black Maca powder to use a couple of times per week (using the Red Maca powder the other days)- which I learned from reading the brochure that came with the powder- and I thought it was a great idea.

    In addition to feeling great, I know the Red Maca helps with hormones, fertility, libido, etc. I do not need the fertility aspect, but could use some assistance in the libido department. I have noticed a slight difference with that (though not much because I'm just overly exhausted with everything going on in my life at this moment). But one thing I did notice was the additional "lubricant" that seemed to form. I don't normally have an issue with that area, but my husband and I did notice that there was more than usual. So that may be helpful to those who are wondering if Red Maca will help with that aspect.

    And a perk is that both the Red and Black Maca powder taste great! I currently use 2 tsp. of Red- which tastes somewhat mild and sweet; and 1 tsp. of the Black (will graduate to 2)- which has a little more taste. somewhat like a radish. I like it. I use both (though not together) in my morning "Green" drink. I really enjoy it.

    Tastes much better than the product I tried previously

    I am a 62 year-old woman, with low hormone levels, and osteoporosis. There is no way I'd go on HRT and I found the natural bio-identical hormones I was offered very hard to take. I've used Maca before, but I found the smell very off-putting. Your red maca is obviously much better, and actually tastes sweet, and though it has an aroma, it is not unpleasant. As soon as I've finished my oil-pulling, I mix the powder with warm water and drink it down. It is supposed to be best on an empty stomach, and I want to give it every chance to "do its thing." I started off with a half metric teaspoon, but I've gone onto a heaped normal teaspoon, and don't have any problems with it. The packaging is very attractive, and full marks to the designer. My thanks to the Maca Team.

    Proper Dosing

    I mix the raw red maca root powder in with plain yogurt and protein powder for breakfast. After using one teaspoon daily for a couple of weeks, I increased the maca to one-and-one-half teaspoons. After a week of that- and one day off- I went to two teaspoons. Stomach distress followed, after which I returned to one-and-one-half teaspoons, which is working out fine.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Great energy boost

    I've been taking Red Maca for a few weeks. Mix it with 4-5 oz of water and drink it plain, empty stomach. Love it. Has a smokey, unique taste which takes a little getting used to but I just chug a lug it down. I noticed within days the steady energy it gave me. I'm used to taking a quick nap after lunch and since Maca I just haven't felt the let down of energy after eating. I feel good about taking it and like thinking I'm making my insides happy too.
