  • Hi, thanks for posting that. I am thinking about trying Maca.

    I have also read some women have moodiness or severe PMS symptoms from maca and may require a smaller dose than is suggested by manufacturers.

  • Glad you enjoyed it:), The best dosage for maca is half a teaspoon 3 times daily at least 25 minutes before meals. Some people go overboard and take tablespoons upon tablespoons daily.

    If its hormonal issues/PMS symptoms you are using maca for you should also look at supporting the liver with bitter herbs on the back of the tongue pre meal and liver support herbs such as milk thistle, schizandra berry, turmeric etc. These support the liver so it can metabolize the excess hormones.
