By Now Foods10 Reviews
Expiration Date: Oct 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is grown at high elevations in the Andes region of central Peru. It has been used for centuries by indigenous Peruvians as a food source, as well as for increasing stamina and energy. More recent scientific studies have demonstrated that Maca supports hormonal balance and both male and female reproductive health.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Navitas Naturals' organic gelatinized maca powder comes in the most economical 16oz zip-lock packaging. It ran out of stock one time and I came to buy NOW Maca. To my surprise, this is even more aromatic and great tasting. Maca is also known as Peruvian ginseng. The gelatinized form has its starch removed so as to boost its absorption. It boosts man's stamina in all forms of physical activities and is believed to increase libido and sperm health as well. To boost fertility, women can take this once daily, and stop during menstrual period or when pregnant. For menopausal women, Maca supports healthy estrogen level and is effective in alleviating symptoms like hot flashes, anxiety and moodiness. As in all herbs that regulate hormone, allow the body time to adjust and take only when needed. Maca is not suitable for women with already estrogen-dominant traits like painful breast-engorgement before menstrual period, severe acne breakout, heavy menstrual bleeding, and history of hormone-sensitive breast cancer.
A product I have used for years. Great in morning smoothie. Love it.
