Maca is a root vegetable that grows high in the Andes mountains of Peru. (above 13,000 ft. / 4000 m) For thousands of years it has been an important part of the diet of people native to the area. And now it is one of the most important agricultural exports of Peru. Maca is a nutrient rich vegetable, containing a wide range of proteins, amino acids and vitamins. Maca also contains special nutrients called macaenes and macamides that are believed to support hormone balance and a healthy endocrine system in both women and men.

Because of its positive effect on hormones, people who take Maca report a wide range of benefits ranging from increased energy, to fertility to hair growth to muscle building and a lot more. Among these benefits, the positive effect Maca has for menopause is one of the most frequently reported. At The Maca Team we regularly hear from happy customers who share that Maca is helping them to minimize symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia and irritability We have 100s of testimonials from women from all over the world. Here are few samples:

"I am 50 and taking the Red Maca extract helped a lot with my Hot Flashes and night sweet. I have a lot of energy in the daytime to accomplish my daily goals. Awesome Product!!!" - Monica Francis

"I have been using the raw, red maca powder to control my menopausal hot flashes for a year and a half. It has been working wonderfully! It took a bit so if you try this be patient. For me it was around the 4th or 5th week of consistently taking my daily dose when suddenly my hot flashes were gone .... and they had been no small thing...". - Tamara Andersen

"This stuff is amazing. I am peri-menopause. I had taken flax seed for the night sweats but it seemed to no longer help much. My menstrual cycle was crazy. I did some research on Maca and which one would be best for me. So, I ordered the red maca and after 3 weeks WOW. No more night sweats and my menstrual cycle is back to normal, then fewer. I am not having any of the symptoms of menopause. No emotional outburst, no hot flashes and fewer menstrual cycles. The taste isn't great but I just add it to my smoothie every morning and it's drinkable. The benefits are worth it. I highly recommend this product to everyone. It has worked for me." -K. Patterson

"It gives me so much energy! I can definitely tell the difference in my energy level on days I don't take it. I started having night sweats but taking my Maca, I do not experience them anymore. I truly believe that Maca is helping me escape the unpleasantries of menopause. I am 55 years old." - Terri L.

"I have been using for a few weeks and I felt more energized in only a few days. I am sleeping much better as well. I no longer have menopausal symptoms, including irritability, insomnia, and hot flashes. I like the fact that it is raw and organic as well." - Claudia

"I have been using red raw capsules for months now due to menopause symptoms such as hot flashes. My hot flashes are gone! I no longer crave sugar so I have lost weight. I feel better overall. I highly recommend this product." - Mary West

"I have been taking The Maca Team's gelantinized red maca for 4 months and I LOVE it. My hot flashes are less and my joints feel better. I like it so much that I share it with anyone who is willing to try. Great Product!" - Lori

"I am a 54 year old that recently started having hot flashes and do not want to use hormones. Prefer something that is natural vs hormone replacement therapies. After taking for a couple days my hot flashes - day and night - are gone. Plus I have more energy and my libido has increased. Due to better sleep I'm much happier. I take a couple teaspoons of the Red Maca with room temp tea on an empty stomach every day now. Have recommended to friends that are suffering of these flashes. Give it a try." - Liz

"I have been taking this for about 6 weeks. Stopped after 4 to try a natural estrogen pill from the health food store. Bad move. The Maca powder worked much better, so I re-ordered. I mix the powder with Almond milk and it tastes pretty good. Still have a few hot flashes, but greatly reduced." --Angela

"I have severe hot flashes and I can't take hormones. I've tried every kind of natural help that I could find with no results. With the Red Maca capsules, I'm now on my third week and my hot flashes are reduced in both intensity and duration. I will try the powder next." - Customer asked to remain anonymous

"I started to have some serious post menopause problems. I tried all the home remedies but the itching, burning and pain continued. Vaginal dryness was the problem and nothing was working until I tried the Red Maca. I noticed after two days of taking the Red Maca that the itching and burning was not as bad as before. After approximately a week of use, once per day; all pain burning and itching had stopped. This is an amazing product and it works. I personally would recommend the Red Maca to any women that maybe suffering with vaginal dryness. Thank you Maca Team" -JoAnn

"Your products are awesome and it works wonders for me. Every time a see a lady whip out a paper fan or nicely decorated folding fan, I am glad to share info on your products. It's never a nice thing to have your very own "personal summer". I'm thinking about making up some business cards with the link to your website to give it out next time I see someone waving a paper fan!" - F.R.

"There are a lot of Maca, products on the market, but this one really worked for me, a 58 year old menopausal woman. My hot flashes went away after 12 days, my memory is better and I have a lot less anxiety and depression. I am continuing to take the Red Maca.Root Extract as directed and everyday life seems a little better." - Suzan Baltozer

"I have been taking this MACA Liquid now for 3 months and what a difference!! My hot flashes stopped since the first day I took it! My energy is noticeably up ( my coworkers noticed too-lol)! My thyroid must be in better balance because I have been losing my hair at the hairline for the past couple years and now it is all growing back in! I will NEVER be without it !" -Helen
