Royal Maca is a sun-dried gelatinized concentrate, much more potent & digestible than Raw Maca Root. Native people never eat maca raw.
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.
Young & Peri-menopausal Women: 1/3 tsp. daily.
Women with no period: 1/2 tsp. daily for 1st week. Increase by 1/2 tsp. daily per week as needed until symptoms are 80% better. If taking HRT or estrogenic herbs, stop 4 weeks before starting Royal Maca to avoid more hot flashes. For those 4 weeks, take 3 caps (1/2 tsp.) 3x day of Royal Camu between meals to reduce hot flashes.
Gluten-free. No additives.
Consult a physician if taking Tamoxifen, Lupron, or pregnant before using this product.

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.

This maca is great. No hot flashes with this and it seems to increase energy and clarity.

This is far and away the best maca supplement I've ever used

Sorted out my hot flashes from the very first day! This particular maca seems to be a cut above many of the other maca products. I had only limited success with estrogenic herbs such as black cohosh, red clover etc. - they would work briefly and then the hot flashes would come back. Apparently, you need to stop the estrogenic herbs before starting with the maca or it may not work. I also take the DIM+ with the maca which is an incredible product for peri and menopausal women.
