I am 47 years old and have been suffering from rage and crying jags before during and after my period for the last several months. I found Royal Maca Powder in a health food store and am just amazed—all of my emotional symptoms disappeared in a week and I feel wonderful. I take only 1/6 tsp. a day. I have already recommended it to 5 or 6 friends. Thank you for this great product.

I have been taking the Royal Maca for 5 days and feel better already. My head is clear, I’m sleeping more soundly and it seems that my hot flashes are disappearing.

I am 50 years old and have been taking Royal Maca for the last five years for hormonal balance. I love the Royal Maca as it has helped a great deal and 2 caps once a day on an empty stomach seems to be the optimal dose for me.
I was on HRT for 20 years for terrible hot flashes. I tried stopping several times but wasn’t able to bear the hot flashes and night sweats. I started taking just the regular Royal Maca—after stopping all hormone supplementation for a month and just taking the Royal Camu. I was taking 9 capsules a day which brought some relief but not enough and then wrote to Dr. Muller about which product to take and the dosage. She told me that women on HRT for decades had special challenges and suggested that I try combining Royal Maca Plus with DIM together with the Royal Maca. I have achieved great relief by doing this and take the Plus product 3 times a day with meals together with the regular Royal Maca 3 times a day with meals, plus an extra capsule at lunch. (But don’t go by my dosage—every woman is different.)

Thank you for your response to my inquiry.
I did stop taking my HRT for a week and then took 1 Royal Maca w//Dim capsule in the morning w/food. I did that for a week and was still experiencing some hot flashes, so I now take 2 capsules a day and it really does seem to be helping. I sleep much better too and my frame of mind is good plus I seem to have more energy.
My niece gave me as a gift 3 months ago the Royal Maca Plus with DIM because I had been having terrible hot flashes for months. I don’t know if it’s wishful thinking or the placebo effect, but from Day 1, I haven’t had a single hot flash since I started taking this product. It is a miracle. I just take one capsule a day.*
* Note: Dosage size varies widely depending on physiology, age, height and weight of the person taking the product.
I have been using royal maca instead of hormone replacement for about 3 or 4 years. I take 4 caps per day.
It has virtually eliminated the horrible hot flashes I was having and I no longer am on the bio identical hormone I was on earlier. My question to you is: what is the difference between the regular royal maca and maca for menapause. I am taking a full spectrum greens product so I probably don’t need the dim version. Can you please let me know as I am ready to reorder.
I got that email about not taking your product until 4 weeks after Estroven, etc.. is out of the system, but I had already started it… either way…. YOUR PRODUCT IS EXTRAORDINARY!!! I had major hot flashes at night and sometimes during the day which caused other anxious feelings, etc… and all the things that go along with perimenapause. I have not had my period for over 2 months, but feel like it may come soon:) either way…. The Royal Maca Plus for Women with DIM has almost completely stopped my hot flashes and balanced me out big time in less than a week. I take 1 three times a day… Hope it’s ok that I didn’t wait for 4 weeks…
For the past few years, I’ve had warm/hot flashes off and on that have been easily dealt with via Black Cohosh. But about 9 months ago, soon after I completely stopped menstruating, I started having frequent hot flashes, at about one an hour 24X7. In addition to being woken up every hour or hour and a half, I’d have bouts of insomnia that would last for an hour or two. My ‘old friend,’ Black Cohosh had absolutely no effect on this state of affairs. A Peruvian friend of mine suggested I try Maca, and after significant research, I found your website. I started at 3 caps a day of your Royal Maca, and eventually went up to 7 which has now all but eliminated the hot flashes. The past few days, I have had a couple of minor warm flashes…and I’ve had a complete, restful night’s sleep the last two nights for the first time in 9 months! I’m SO delighted with your product. I cannot thank you enough!
My clients have LOVED the Royal Maca!! I am an Electro-Dermal Screening Technician located in Texas. I work primarily with DP Nutritional and Desert Biologicals remedies but have found that your product works very well with my clients that have menopausal issues.
Many thanks to you and your company for providing outstanding products.

I’d heard of maca root before and noticed it in my supermarket one day. I decided to do some research before I bought some. Your website did a thorough job of telling me what you do and what your product is about. The first sign for me that the maca was helping is my menopausal heart palpitations stopped. My skin was feeling very sensitive; almost like paper. It feels great now. I sprinkle it on my oatmeal every morning or eat it straight by itself. I’ve been recommending your product to people.
Thank you for making the effort to produce a great product and making it fair traded too.
Your product has helped me immensely. I had a hysterectomy in my early 20′s and am now 57 and was looking for something natural to help me feel better. I had never been on hormones. I noticed an immediate change in my energy levels and all around feeling. I am somewhat sensitive to herbs, so sometimes I skip every other day and still feel fantastic taking this product. I did a lot of research on the internet before choosing your product, Royal Maca Plus. I will continue to purchase this product and take throughout my lifetime. I was even more surprised when Dr. Oz mentioned the Maca product on his show the other day and knew that I had made the right choice in choosing Royal Maca to help me.
Yes, I have been taking the Royal Maca and Camu for about a year now. Love both!!
The Royal Maca has helped my hot flashes tremendously. I take two capsules every morning and that seems to be the right dosage for me. If I take more than the two capsules, my hot flashes return.
Thanks for such great products that are US organic and that we can trust completely!
Your products are wonderful. I went into abruptly into menopause in 7/06. Had 2 light periods in between. Was put on injections and hormonal creams and my Prolactic level was over the top. I was at the New Life Expo and dropped the Whole World booth. I was intrigued with Maca/woman and spoke a length with the sales-person. This was in 4/08. I was told I would notice a balance of my hormones and also it may take up to 4 months to work.
On 8/18/08 I had a normal period and have been regular each month. I feel wonderful. Your team was right; 4 MONTHS exactly. I rave about your products to doctors and they do not have a clue. Recently a gynecologist could not understand why a woman of 53yrs young has a full period. I told her about Maca (and that I went into menopause early because of a medication I was taking which caused my periods to abruptly disappear, without any flashes). She was very suspicious. I said I feel great and that my mom had a period until 61yr young. Her answer to my problems I am having concerning fibroids, uterus tilting to right, is to have my uterus removed. Not a chance. I wish more doctors were educated about the wonderful results from Royal Maca. I wanted to thank your company and I continue to use your products and tell every one about them.
Thank you ever so much.
I am 49 years old and have been taking it for peri-menopause symptoms. I had noticed in the last couple of years that I was experiencing more severe PMS along with Pre-menstrual cramping and very heavy periods. Also my periods were coming closer together (every 24-25 days) Since I have been taking the Royal Maca, my PMS has gone away and I no longer have cramping or heavy periods, also my periods are very regular at 27 days. So I have been very happy with the outcome.
I am 40 years old and I had been on birth control pills for years.
After discontinuing the birth control pill, I began having irregular periods. I used to have normal periods every 28 days. Gradually my periods became later and later or simply failed to show up. I became very concerned because I wanted to try to become pregnant. My OBGYN tested my hormones and the levels showed up normal and not premenopausal. I started taking the MACA in March in hopes of restarting my period. Within 30 days my periods became normal again and arrived every 28 days. I’m also happy to announce that I’m 6 weeks pregnant as of August! MACA is excellent for promoting normal periods and increasing fertility. I highly recommend MACA!
I have a severe fructose sensitivity or intolerance problem. I suffer from unreal gas and bloating and constipation. I also suffer from wheat and gluten sensitivity and lactose too!! Do you think the Camu-Camu would help. I have terrible digestive problems. I can’t take vitamin c at all. What do you think?
Your Royal Maca has solved all my menopause problems. It is really a miracle for me. I was allergic to anything else. You don’t need to call an email is fine
Thank-you for your concern about how the product is working. Very happy with the out come. Only need to take one capsule twice a week. Much better person to be with. So happy I found you.
I have had the opportunity to try many different types of maca including ordering a pound of it from South America from a reputable herb company so that I could experiment with large doses so I could gauge the effect. More on that later.
I have worked in the natural foods area as a vitamin associate for 8 years and have received A LOT of feedback regarding maca from both men and women. I like the fact that your body decides on which hormones to make. When you take Maca, it is a modulator of hormones according to the needs of each individual, regardless of gender. This is much better than “shotgunning” the body with individual hormones such as DHEA, progesterone, ect. In my opinion, this much safer and is about balance as Maca raises or lowers the hormones and brings them into BALANCE.
After doing research on maca I realized there was not much published research in PubMed except for rats and it seems that traditional use of the herb was gelatinized or baked to increase its effectiveness. I looked for this on a lot of supplement labels and baked or gelatinized was not listed. It is on Whole World Botanicals maca I decided to experiment as I was older and looking for ways to keep my hormone balance healthy.
I tried many other maca supplements in various dosages without noticing any energy or libido effects. I ordered a pound of powdered maca so that I could try larger dosages up to 2 to 3 tablespoons of maca powder to see if that would work. I did not notice very much at all as regards energy or libido. Then I received a sample of Whole World Botanicals maca powder from a rep and decided to try it.
I started out with 1/2 tsp of maca in my morning smoothie and noticed pleasant energizing effects for the first few days. Then I tried 1 teaspoon and the effects were dramatic on both libido and energy. So much so that I had to cut back on my dosage because it was too energizing and to much attention was being directed towards my libido. In other words, I was being too distracted at work. When I back down on the dosage or stop taking it for a while my energy normalizes.
The long and short of it is that the customer feedback is great for the Whole World Botanicals maca and I never hear back from customers regarding the other maca products even though I ask them to give me feedback. Based on personal experience and customer feedback I believe that Whole World Botanicals is the best maca out there because it is a 4 to 1 extract and most important it is baked or gelatinized according to traditional methods of preparation.
You may pay a little more up front but you can use dramatically less for results.
I must say I never reply to these things but I love this supplement for menopausal hot flashes. There are 5 women in my office who also use Royal Maca. Over time I had to increase from 2 capsules a day to 3 but all in all its the only product that works for me.

I have Hashimoto and my periods were unmanageable. My OBGYN wanted to
perform surgery and I was very reluctant. I read about Maca in one of
Mary Shomon’s books and decided to try the one at Whole Foods. It
helped a little but when I purchased your product, I can tell a world
of difference in just a month. This is the first time in some 20 years
that my period does not hurt and I am not incapacitated for two or
three days. I am amazed and, above all, grateful. I just purchased
three more bottles and I will be taking this product for a long time.
I will also tell my endocrinologist,who is very receptive to herbal
remedies. Thanks a lot.
