Love the stuff has a nice fudgey taste, Add it to my morning shake when I have some. Has a really nice energizing soothing effect. Pick up a small bag and try a TBSP or two once a day see how you feel.

I've noticed fewer perimenopausal issues when I take Maca. However, the stuff I purchased tasted so dreadful I couldn't gag it down (I bought a cheap piller and made maca pills).


Where did you purchase your maca?

Bought some of the powdered gelatinized Navitas stuff..i tastes horrendous!! And worse, sticks to your teeth. Maybe best blended in shakes. Urgh.

Was wondering about Maca too and might've bought the Navitas stuff. But no interest in consuming aphrodisiacs and thanks Tony for your warning!!
