Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite supplements If I had to narrow my daily supplements to 5 or fewer per day, this would be on my list! It noticeably boosts my libido. I can even take it every few days instead of every day, and it can still feel the effects. 'Nuff said. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maca I bought this because of the health benefits for menopausal issues. I do find that i helps with Hot flashes and sleeplessness, I found that it increases you heart rate and I don't need that. But for your personal usage find your own needs for what it does for you and it's for Men and Women.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stomach pain common side effect I noticed some good effects from taking this, but I also noticed some stomach pain every time. Did some research and found that this is very common - and for some people the pain was long lasting! No one in Peru eats raw Maca. You want the gelatinized version, which employs light cooking to break down the starches - it's also more nutrient-dense. There are a few versions of the gelatinized here, and more elsewhere. In my opinion, raw maca should not even be sold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swanson regular Maca I have used, alternately, Swanson regular Maca (SW961) and Swanson Maca 4:1 Extract (SWP011) over several cycles at the recommended dosage. The supposedly stronger extract was notable for having no noticeable effect. The regular Maca does have, for me, an effect at the recommended dosage. It has been used regularly since. Authoritative sources have recommended using maca--a food--at the level Peruvians do, 3-5 grams per day or higher. The regular Maca has been used at these increased dosages with increased effect and no apparent problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Verdict still out I've taken the recommended two capsules per day for 30 days now and I am not seeing any results. In fact, my night sweats are more often now than when I wasn't taken it. However! I haven't given up on it yet. I'm increasing my dose and will see if that helps. Will update this review (or post a new one) if the extra dose helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from p this review pertains to the following product used as a swanson combo: Muira Puama Maca Fenugreek (testofen) catuaba D aspartic acid Been on this for 3 weeks and this is what I noticed: better energy (diminished afternoon crash) better sleep even though I am sleeping slightly less hours libido and performance and noticeably improved in all aspects improved performance and endurance in the gym slight acne - indicative of higher testosterone and estrogen (might need to add an AI later on) cons : the fenugreek is somewhat expensive but the bundle as a whole is very nicely priced :-) note : the DAA I used is called testforce and is chelated DAA also note : this review is repeated across each of the bundle components Recommended!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There are better Maca supplements I have been trying different Maca supplements over the years and I have found that Swanson brand Maca is not as potent as many other brands on the market. I LOVE The price at Swansons, but I am having to go elswhere to get better Maca.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifetime User I started working night shift about 4 months ago and had no energy for the gym and started gaining weight. A friend from work turned me on to this. I mix 1 maca, 1 gurana, 1 asprin and 1 jet alert. I take all that right before i leave for the gym, it takes me about 20 mins to get there. My workouts are now twice as long and more intense with not much more effort. Plus i have energy threw out the night, havent even finished that first bottle and im buying another one because im afraid of running out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For peri-menopausal symptoms This works great. Once you let it build in your system for a few days, 1 twice a day keeps those night sweats and hot flashes in check. This formula seems to work better than other ones I've tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maca Root is GREAT! I am very happy with it, I started out w/ the lowest dose, but that didn't do much, so I added 1 capsule to the dosage making it 2/morning 1/lunch, I have felt more energized, my periods don't hurt near as bad, I don't feel as moody as usual, I sleep a little better at night, don't know about hot flashes, too young for those but I do know I feel better, don't have so much problem staying awake during the day, I feel more active, so I am very satisfied. Oh & I did lose the 5 lbs I gained, time to try for more!!! I like this stuff! :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cook that Maca! Let me begin by saying I love Maca! I truly can see the benefits it provides in the gym, the bedroom , and as a natural energy stabilizer throughout the day. However, in order for Maca to truly be effective in the body it must be cooked (or gelatinized). There is an enzyme present in Maca that when not cooked out disrupts the digestive system and may bind you up something fierce! This is why the people indigenous to the region of the high Andes where Maca is native, eat it cooked and not raw. You wouldn't eat a raw potato now would you? Unfortunately, Swanson does not offer a gelatinized Maca supplement. Cook that Maca!

Q: Why does the color and smell seem to be different than my last order?

A: Natural color variations can occur from batch to batch. Botanical ingredients have a distinct and earthy odor noticeable after opening the bottle.
