Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is grown at high elevations in the Andes region of central Peru. It has been used for centuries by indigenous Peruvians as a food source, as well as for increasing stamina and energy. More recent scientific studies have demonstrated that Maca supports hormonal balance and both male and female reproductive health.

Tastes good with Cocoa Powder
I have tried other Maca Powders in the past. This is one of my favorites!!! Tastes a bit nutty, but mixes well in a smoothie with Cocoa Powder.

tastes awful causes massive bloating issues
This claims to be gelatinized but it causes massive gas/bloating issues. Tastes awful tried it in almond milk and fruit juice. If you have a sensitive stomach I wouldn't try this brand. I've read the capsules might be better.

Pretty much all you need to know about MACA can be summed up in two words: MACHU PICCHU. This mountain top estate in the Peruvian Andes built around 1450 by the Incas, now considered one of the Wonders of the World, is undeniable evidence of the great wisdom and power of those Incas. MACA is purported to be an important, significant food of today's Peruvians living in that region of the Andes, as it was with the mysterious and mighty Incas centuries before. Who am I to argue with MACHU PICCHU? I have read all over the internet, in reliable printed publications, as well as on Swanson's website how useful MACA is, and is reported to have been for centuries, as a primary food staple for energy, stamina, vitality, and longevity. As with old sayings, a centuries old nutrient would no longer be in favor if there weren't validity to it. I'm a believer. . . . MACHU PICCHU. . . . MACA. Works for me. Good to know: This NOW Foods Pure Certified Organic MACA Powder is a wonderful product. Very user friendly and effective. I put a big rounded tsp of this MACA into any of my different 'green drinks' I put together every day. Taste is fine; I really don't even notice it. Miscibility is fine whether I stir it, shake it, or use the blender. My healthy cocktails with MACA provide me with everything the articles and claims say. It's all good. Another reason I choose this MACA Powder from NOW Foods is that it is a 6:1 Concentrate, giving me more 'MACHU PICCHU.' Looks to me like this makes NOW's MACA the best buy, too. Swanson's price is great, a fraction of the price down at the local Natural Markets and Vitamin Stores. This is all good.

May be good for you but awful to taste!
This stuff tastes terrible! My second order was in cap form. No matter what I mixed it in, hot or cold, it was awful! It has a very earthy, mineral, dirt or clay sort of taste. Not my favorite. I would recommend the caps instead.
