How Much MACA LIVE™ Do I Need?
One to two full teaspoons of powder daily. Maca is a food and does not have restrictions to size of dose nor are there any known negative side effects.
These are suggestions that have shown to be most effective. Two to four teaspoons-take half in the morning and other half again in the afternoon to start. The beneficial effects of Maca accumulate with use, and very often the amount of MACA required to maintain a healthy state of balance decreases over time.

What About Using MACA For Fertility?
MACA has been used for centuries in South America for fertility. In the United States men and women who have had difficulty conceiving are beginning to report pregnancies after using maca. We recommend both partners (male/female) to be using Maca while working on conception. Women usually stop taking maca when pregnancy is discovered and resume Maca if they are breast-feeding to support milk production.
It is important to remember that maca is NOT a hormone. MACA is a food that nourishes the hormonal system to maintain optimal balance and health, and works by stimulating the Hypothalamus & Pituitary Glands to help balance the Endocrine Glands.
MACA was originally studied by Dr. Chacon because of it’s ability to ward off malnutrition in the poorer regions of Peru. Maca is especially high in calcium and magnesium and has proven to be successful in promoting healthy bone formation.
