Maca Powder is made from the root of the maca plant. Maca root is also known as Lepidium Meyenii, part of the Cruciferae family of plants, which are reddish roots like radishes. The maca root is usually dried and stored, where it can then last for many years. Its popularity began more than 5000 years ago in South America, and has been in use since.
Maca has traditionally been used as a sexual enhancer. It has been used all over the world and is reported to effect both men and women. The affect is not understood to be hormonal, as it has no effect on estrogen or testosterone. Sperm production increases have been reported in men who supplement with Maca, and those wanting to reduce prostate hypertrophy also find it useful.
Maca is starting to be investigated for its use as a mild “nootropic” with some users reporting improved cognitive ability, as well as others suggesting it can have an effect on bone health.

One of those things you don't notice much, but you really feel it when you miss some. Love it in the morning shake

The best Maca I have ever tried. Most Maca's have a very strong smell and taste. This one is mild and actually tastes good. It works too.

I dont know if the capsules taste any better, but they sure cant be worse.
This stuff requires a strong will and a weak gag reflex. Maybe it helps, I have to psyche myself up for a good 30 mins to take it

I used to get 100g for around $15 from supermarket/health food shops and when I saw this - a WHOLE KILO of the stuff for $57 I died and went to heaven.
Awesome product - great quality and amazing price. I have it every morning with my oats :)

Nice, tastes fine to me. I guess if you used a lot it might not be great.
Nice price too!

It's not bad tasting if you just take it straight with water. But I much prefer to add it with other supplements in a shake. The flavour is very subtle so you don't really notice it's there. Great value as well!
