Taking Royal Maca and Royal Camu: Correct dosage is everything!

Royal Maca All

Recently Whole World Botanicals received this email from a customerRoyal Maca All

Q: For the last three weeks, I’ve been taking 3 Royal Camu capsules a day and 3 Royal Maca caps in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. I know everyone is different but is there a time frame where one feels it really kick in? I still have the hot flashes in the morning and evening. My moods are still iffy, energy low, no libido, head a bit fuzzy, balance is not there…but then in my quest to feel better maybe I am being impatient. Should I perhaps supplement the Royal Maca with pregnenolone and the Royal Camu with 5HTP?

A: No, no, no! If you are at the right dosage, these botanicals will “kick in” anywhere from one to four days. If you supplement a “wrong” dosage of Royal Maca (wrong for you because everyone’s different) with pregnenolone, you’ll literally being adding fuel to the fire of your hot flashes. An average dosage – so it might not apply to you– for menopausal hot flashes is 6 capsules a day. Four caps is on the low side for many women. But remember the dosing rule for Royal Maca: Take a starting dosage for 5 days and if your symptoms are not at least 80% better, increase your dosage by one capsule a day—for the next 5 days.

Royal Camu generally works just great as a mood balancer if you are at the right dosagefor you. At 3 caps a day you are not taking even the smallest recommended dosage for mood balance support. So it doesn’t seem like a good idea to go running to another supplement. The minimum amount for most people is two caps (1/3) tsp. twice a day on an empty stomach – first thing in the morning and at about 3 or 4 p.m. Some people need 3 caps twice a day. Others need up to 5 caps (one tsp.) twice a day. Again, start small, and let how you feel be your guide.

  1. I WOULD LIKE TO START THE ROYAL CAMU AS A MOOD BALANCER. CAN I TAKE THIS IF I AM ON BIRTH CONTROL?

  2. Dear Diane,

    I’m so sorry for the delay in answering you. Yes, you can take the Royal Camu while you are on birth control pills.

    Best,

    Viana Muller
