Maca is used to promote healthy free testosterone levels in men, which accordingly helps improve strength, vitality, hair health, higher bone mass density and sexual drive. Maca is beneficial to men and women of any age, but especially over the ages of 30 when hormone levels decline.
Among women, Maca supplementation has been studied to help normalize the symptoms of premenstrual/menstrual symptoms, as well as the symptoms of menopause including: hot flashes, night sweats, cramps, fatigue and lethargy.
The dried Maca roots are carefully selected and washed before they are cut, cooked, dried and ready for milling. Organika®‘s Organic Gelatinized Maca Powder undergoes a specialized procedure, involving additional slow cooking and an extrusion process which splits large starch chains, to create a Maca powder that mixes instantly.
- Known as Peruvian Ginseng, Maca Powder supports healthy bone structure, stress levels and increased energy.
- Balances mood and emotional state during menopause.
- Supports physical and emotional aspects of sexual health.

I've read in the past that maca was great for peri-menopausal women, and I tried it, not crazy about the taste at the time. At 45 now, I noticed that I had put on weight due to fluctuating hormones causing an increase in my appetite. I started with this powdered version last month as an additive to my morning protein smoothie, and since then I have noticed that my appetite has decreased tremendously, I am eating way less, and I have lost weight as a result. Excellent product, and I love how it dissolves easily for absorption!

I've read that gelatinized maca absorbs better in the body than the non-gelatinized kind, so I stick with this kind. Also like that it is organic and Canadian. I can't speak to the maca's taste because I usually bury it in something else - a smoothie, hot drink or oatmeal. Also not sure about the effects and whether it's actually doing anything for me. But I continue anyway, taking it just occasionally.

This is the only maca I've tried so far but I like the taste. The only downside like someone else mentioned and I like I mentioned is that I have never tried others to compare to but is it does clump a bit if you don't have an immersion blender. I'll probably buy it again. I'm using it in my battle to balance hormones.
