I am a regular customer of i.herb but this is the first time i have been so impressed with a supplement that i wanted to spread the word. I have been for a great deal of my life hormonally out of balance, been to conventional doctors, alternative doctors and none were able to help me telling me that my hormones were all ok, although i felt most of the time lousy, im now 45 and perimenopausal. I had used maca powders before, but either i didnt use them long enough for them to take effect or i was missing the effects of the gelatinized version. I have been taking 1 teaspoon of this for the last 6 weeks and i feel ''balanced'' for the first time in my entire life,putting weight on in all the right places and nowhere else, improved sleep, mood and energy. Im over the moon!!

I prefered this maca to the raw maca that Navtias Naturals also sell. It's easier for the body to absorb. The combination of maca and cacao really helped me to get som extra energy, as well as getting my period back. It tastes quite neutral, and is very good to blend into smoothies.

The taste is really strong and hard to hide in food

Gelatinized Maca powder has a wonderful caramelized aroma, but sadly, does not translate well to a flavor palate. Beware of using this in a smoothie blended with anything acidic ie, lemon juice, kiwi, strawberries...it 'll make the smoothie taste like vomit. I cannot fathom why and have yet to come across an explanation. I add only half a teaspoon to a daily smoothie with banana, spirulina, walnuts, goji berries, hemp seeds, and whatever green vegetable. on hand. Definitely does give a boost in energy, not a placebo, but have yet to use it long enough to comment on any other health merits.

I do love this maca powder but it's not that special for me. I didn't find so great difference between taking- and not taking this maca powder. I make my smoothies with this and it doesn't taste very much in it. I find the taste quite agreeable. I love that maca does balance my hormones a bit and reduces my acne breakouts. I have more energy to exercise as well! So I will keep eating this and hope that it improves my health even if I it didn't notice. However I do recommend this for exercise and energy!
