    These capsules were recommended to me by a friend for relief of hot flushes and the fact that they can help 'lift' your mood. I have to say that since taking these I haven't experienced any hot flushes and definitely feel that my mood is more balanced and positive. They are also inexpensive and I've recommended them to several friends since, so worth a try if you have any menopause symptoms.

  2. Niki

    Definitely feel a boost in energy and well-being after a few days of taking these. I do find it best to cycle them though as the noticeable effects seem to wane after 2-3 weeks. So I take them for 3 weeks before having a 1-2 week break. Works for me, but a different protocol may work equally well or better for you. We're all a little different.
    Goes Well With:
    Glass of water.

FAQs

What is Maca?
Maca is a plant that grows in some of the harshest conditions in the world - on top of a high mountain in less-than-ideal soil. A member of the Cruciferae family, it is related to the mustard plant as well as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. It contains nutrients such as Vitamin C, zinc, iron, and calcium. Its botanical name is Lepidium Meyenii. It produces leaves but the root is the source of the supplement’s nutrition - the roots are dried and then processed into powder. It is typically taken as powder or in capsules.
What are the potential health benefits of Maca?

There are a wide variety of potential Maca benefits, which makes some consider it an adaptogen - a supplement that can help your body better handle stressors and challenges to protect itself. With so many nutrients, Maca root has a wide arrange of potential benefits. 

 

1. Maca Can Improve Your Mood

Like other cruciferous plants, Maca is packed with healthy compounds. Maca contains antioxidants called flavonoids, which are largely linked with improving mood and reducing anxiety. Several Maca Root studies have noted reduction in feelings of anxiety and depression. 

 

2. Maca May Improve Your Blood Pressure

The same study that showed benefits to depression and anxiety symptoms also noted that post-menopausal women taking Maca had reduced diastolic blood pressure, the pressure in your arteries when the heart is resting between beats. We know that other cruciferous vegetables support overall health, and Maca is no different. 

 

3. Supporting Fertility

One of the primary early uses for Maca was to support reproductive health. 

Further research is being done on the impact of Maca on all reproductive-related hormones to investigate other potential benefits. Many women report that it helps to “balance” their hormones and moderate some of the symptoms of menopause, like hot flashes. 

 

4. Increasing Stamina

Thanks to all of Maca’s other benefits, continued research has shown that it can even increase your stamina during exercise. Just like it has been used for centuries to boost energy, in Peru, a study showed an improvement in a cycling time trial with consistent Maca supplementation. 

 

5. Increasing Energy

The Vitamin C, iron, and B6 content of Maca all help support a healthy immune system and reduced fatigue. While no direct correlation has been shown with strength or muscle building, being able to push harder in your workouts can have many resulting benefits. If you’re struggling with energy or finishing your workout strong, Maca could be the solution you’re looking for.

When is The Best Time to Take Maca?
The timing of your Maca supplement doesn’t have as strong of an impact as the consistency of when you take it. The majority of research studies that showed benefit had the participants taking a consistent dose - the timing of ingestion related to your workout isn’t as important. You could add it to a post-workout shake or a pre-workout stack, however works best for you.
What's the Ideal Maca Powder Dosage?

You should use 5 grams daily for consistent results. You can mix it simply with water, juice, or into a shake or smoothie. Our Maca powder is vegan, organic, and gluten free, making it fit naturally into your healthy diet. edy that is known for its potential to increase testosterone levels in men who suffer from low levels of this primary sex hormone. Inadequate levels of testosterone can lead to a variety of health issues, including low libido, erectile dysfunction & in some cases infertility.
