Whole World Botanicals, Royal Maca, Superfood, 6.17 oz (175 g)8 Reviews
Expiration Date: Oct 2018
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.

Sensitive or petite people: Start with 1/6 tsp. daily.
For energy & well-being: 1/4-1/3 tsp. daily.
Men over 50: 1/2-1 tsp. daily. Some may find it more effective to take 1 tsp. every other day.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I stopped taking birth control last month and started taking 1/2 tbs of Royal Maca every morning. I have always had very short cycles, 21 days instead of the supposed 28 or 29 day cycles most women have...and I have always had very painful cramping. After being on Maca for 1 month, my 1st cycle off Birth Control was 29 days and my period came with minimal cramping! I am very happy with the results so far and plan to keep taking Maca. I would recommend taking it with some fruit juice, I think Passion fruit juice goes well with the Maca taste.
When I use Maca from Whole World Botanicals, within a week I start feeling more energy, improved libido, and just overall better. Depression lifts and I'm happy again. I made the mistake once of buying in bulk something in a plastic bag. Problem is, Maca absorbs moisture and mold get started, and this it doesn't work at all. I've been using this off and on for about 10 years. I should never stop, but sometimes I just can't fit it into the budget.
