although slightly bitter compared to other brands of Maca it is still a descent quality.i find Maca easily digested when served hot so here's a great hot recipe for using this product : 1 to 2 tsp of Cacao,1 tsp of Maca,1 tbsp of grinded poppy seeds and 1 tbsp of sweet melaco/Molases,2 chocolate tablets and the smallest amount of salt,mix all together with a cup of hot water & add a handful of Goji berry / lycium berry above & wait for it to be cold enough to drink-thats it you're ready to go! ...you are welcome to rate & read my other reviews

My husband and I use it religiously - add it to protein shakes in the morning and before our workouts in the evenings (although, I have also made protein bars/bites with it for a little snack during the day). Provides you with the right amount of energy to endure the day and then beast through a workout (especially, if you've had a hard day at work) - and that's all without the jittery feeling of a pre-workout or caffeine!

I was hesitant at first with purchasing this brand, but glad I did. Takes nice and makes me feel good with increased energy and feelings of joy.

I am an athlete woman and I am using it sometimes in the mornings as suggested: maca, cacao and brown sugar, and also I am adding cinnamon together with cardamom to it. For me it is good, tasty (reminds nuts a bit) and serves instead of morning coffee. But due to not big amount of studies done yet for young women, I am trying not to overdo with it. Just sometimes, when I have a mood for it.

Using Maca powder does help with my energy levels. Also it seems to be helping in my pre-menopausal issues. It also helps with the headaches I used to get.

Great quality maca powder.I am taking 2grams pre and after work out for physical boosting and mental well being. Single dosage of 5-7grams seem to raise libido.

I haven't tried any maca powder before, so I have nothing to compare with. However, this product is smooth, mixes well with other "powders", and for the items I have used it for (smoothies and fruit-based ice cream), it is good. Especially, I like to add it when using raw cacao powder for a "deeper" taste of chocolate.

First time trying any form of powder, so I didn't know what to expect. Since trying this, I've experienced controlled appetite, more arrive lifestyle and it helps with my fertility. Don't mind the slight smell, it goes away obviously when you add more foods to your smoothie, smoothie bowls, etc.

I drink some raw maca powder mixed with water before doing sports. Despite the slightly unpleasant taste, it gives me an important energy boost, without the side effects of other stimulants, such as caffeine.

Is like it should be, I'm happy with this :) Only minus comes from the resealable zipper - it was hard to close(probably has maca in it) and is unreliable(I dropped the bag and few teaspoons of maca got on the floor because the zipper was open).
