4 Easy to Use Posted by Sharla Schultze on 28th Jan 2023 I have tried red Maca in powder form and in the extract form. I found the taste of the powder not to my liking, but the extract has a mild taste which is much more palatable. The extract is very easy to use with no mixing or unpleasant taste. I am taking it to (hopefully) help with bone density. I can't really evaluate the effectiveness concerning my bone density, so gave it 4 stars.
