I have been taking this Maca for about a year, and can say I really feel it. This isn’t one I needed to take for two weeks to start feeling it either. I noticed the increase in energy and overall vitality right away. Definitely recommended.
I have PCOS and really had issues with having a consistent and non painful cycle. When I first started taking this I was on day 178 of a never ending cycle. I knew I was progesterone deficient and had given up on modern medicine to help me. Within three weeks of starting this I ovulated. I took 2 pills of this for a two months alone in combination of giving up gluten. My cycles began to regulate and I began to be able to lose weight which had become impossible due to the hormone imbalance. I added vitex and lowered it to 1 maca pill and within two months was pregnant with a baby that we had been told was ‘impossible’ by seven doctors.
After our son was born I waited to see if everything would regulate itself. Since I started having a lot of the issues again that I knew were related to the progesterone deficiency I have gone back on it. I am feeling a lot better since I started taking it. I love it and would highly recommend trying it if you struggle with PCOS or hormone deficiency. I love that it is an adaptgen and can help your body figure out what hormone is missing or not working properly.
I have tried several brands of maca over my time using it. This was the first and I loved it. For a while I could not find it so I supplemented with the NOW brand instead. While the NOW brand was good, I felt that this one was better. I just felt a lot more energized on this one.
I’ve been using this for over 3 years now, it works great for me. You have to understand that this is not a fast acting pill but a slow acting organic herb. It helps in faster recovery and works the same way like multi vitamins where the effect is slow and prolonged.
If you’re trying it for the first time, I would recommend to be a bit patient and give it a month or so before making conclusion if it’s good for you or not.
My husband and I both use this product in addition to our multivitamin for added energy and general all around well being. He and I both have aging hormonal changes and have suffered with night sweats on occasion. It seems this supplement has basically stopped that for both of us! I was taking 1 tablet for a long time and didn’t “feel” any difference or improvement. I was about to discontinue its use, but invested time in researching more thorough before doing so. I found it takes 2,000-3,000 mg for its best effective dose…and yes indeed after we began taking three of the 800 mg tablets we began to feel a difference! The energy it produces is not a caffeine type feel…it literally just makes you feel awake and alert and ready to go. This will always be part of our daily vitamin/supplement regimen.
Best supplements ever if you need to boost your energy or your libido, it does both and very well. At first I bough this to prove if this could make me more curvy, It didn’t give me bigger breast, butt, whatsoever but I notices a HUGE difference in humor, libido and energy. I have hormonal imbalance too (strogenic dominance) and this relieved my symptoms as well. Maca it’s a very good source of protein (THAT’S a plus) and this supplement is cheap and the quality is great. I recommend to give this a try.
I have been using this product since January 2011 for pre-menopausal symptoms. Bought the product on an older Amazon listing. I felt the difference in just 4 days of taking this. All the hot flashes and mood swings were gone, and within weeks I was able to sleep through the night again. I also have more energy and no longer need a nap during the day. This product really helps to balance the hormones by balancing your endocrine system. I recommend it highly for any woman who’s suffering from hormonal imbalance or changes.
So, I am a native Peruvian living in NY. I have consumed Maca my whole life. Energy wise, it cannot be compare to anything else, it does take some time to work, but it is with all natural supplements. Libido and sex. Well, I am almost 40 and I feel like I am in my twenties. I do exercise and eat healthy. When buying Maca, make sure it says, “Made in Peru”.
After experiencing 30 to 40 “hot flashes” per day, I came across the recommendation to try maca root. It has helped significantly in reducing the hot flashes, and minimizing their severity. A couple of things about maca root, however, is that you have to take it for 2 to 4 weeks before any real benefits kick in. I’ve been taking 3 a day. In trying to scale back to two times per day, there is some worsening of symptoms, so it’s back to 3 and I’m not particularly thrilled about that, but would rather take 3 than have the problems
I have been using this Maca 800 mg for about 3 weeks on and off. The flavor is interesting, almost creamy by description! I take the required dosage 2-3 tablets a day(every 6 hours). I refrain from any activity in the bedroom for about 4 to 5 days plus drink lots of water.
When the time came to release the burden the result was impressive! Volume was considerable and consistency was to my girl’s liking!!
Pricing for 100 tablets is good value.
