Read What Doctors Have Said About MACA

How Much Imperial Gold Maca™Do I Need?
You will notice that each capsule of 
Imperial Gold Maca contains 600mg. of 100% premium quality 100% Organic MACA Root. The usual amount used in South America by men and women is usually as shown the maximum daily dose. (10 Capsules daily) or half - 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 times daily 3-6  capsules or  1/2 - 1 teaspoon twice daily.

It is interesting that the beneficial effects of Imperial Gold Maca® accumulate with use.

Very often the amount of MACA required that may eliminate hot flashes, increase energy or maintain a healthy state of hormonal balance decreases over time. For example, a woman using a beginning amount of 6 capsules a day to eliminate hot flashes may find that after 1-2 weeks she only needs 2-4 capsules to achieve the same results. Men respond best when taken over a two - four week span, may notice a greater sexual stimulation and interest as well as the above listed benefits.

What About The Powder Form Of Imperial Gold Maca™?
The powder form may be mixed in water, or almost any other beverage. MACA mixed in protein drinks is an excellent tasting drink. MACA powder also makes a pleasant, earthy-tasting tea when mixed in boiled water and steeped for 5 minutes. Be creative with your mixing to make it very favorable.

Imperial Gold Maca™ is ideal with apple sauce and yogurt. It mixes easily with any beverage and has a delicious taste of it's own. The powder is excellent in protein drinks and ideal just before athletic activity. 
A favorite is mixed in a protein drink and adding a banana or other fruit. However it is great with ant beverage!

Imperial Gold Maca™ is a food and may be taken with or without a meal. Those using MACA find that the most convenient time to take it is in the morning when they wake up.  A Healthy Alternative, LLC suggests taking  either all at once or in divided amounts. Because Imperial Gold Maca does have a subtle energizing effect, we suggest taking Imperial Gold Maca™ before 8: 00 pm. in order to avoid disturbing your sleep. Body builders and athletes perform much better when taking MACA one hour before exercising. Increased stamina and energy has been noted frequently. Allowing MACA to build in the body improves the overall effects. Being consistent and taking MACA daily for several weeks amazes people. Energy and stamina improve dramatically with continued use.

What About Side Effects?
here are no known side effects with Maca. Occasionally a woman may develop breast tenderness – this is simply a signal to reduce the amount of MACA being used. It is also not advisable to take Maca late at night, as this may create energy, and keep you from getting a restful nights sleep. Men report increased stimulation if taken late at night. Generally it is very safe to take.

What Other Changes Can I Expect While Using MACA?
Men and women have reported increased energy levels and it may , increase the ability to function under stress, and increased libido. Women report and it may decrease in the problems associated with PMS, menopause and peri-menopause. Men report increased libido function and stamina often. A man's sexual appetite & potency increases with continued use as does a women's.  

Women experiencing the irregular menses associated with Perimenopause usually experience changes in their periods such as fewer cramps, a gradual decrease in bleeding and less fatigue. These effects accumulate with prolonged use of MACA.

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 Imperial Gold Maca™. 

We recommend both partners (male/female) to be using Imperial Gold Maca™ while working on conception. The usual amount taken for fertility is between 3600mg. and 5000mg. daily. Women usually stop taking MACA when pregnancy is discovered and resume MACA if they are breast-feeding which may help to increase milk production and quality and adjust the hormonal levels.

It is important to remember that Imperial Gold Maca™ is NOT a hormone. MACA is a food that may nourish the hormonal system to maintain optimal balance and health. And may Work Through The Hypothalamus & Pituitary Gland To Help Balance The Endocrine Glands.

Do I Need To Take Other Vitamins And Minerals With MACA?
Our advisory board of  nutritionists suggest taking a good multivitamin, Vitamin E 800IU’s and Vitamin C at least 2,000mg. a day. This is a generic recommendation and should not replace recommendations made by your own health care practitioner and should not be used if you have any contraindications to the above vitamin suggestions. Multivitamins does help the body in many ways and it is a good idea to check with your health practitioner as to the amount best for you.

Imperial Gold Maca™ contains large amounts of vitamins and minerals and can be enhanced by your own use of multivitamins. MACA was originally studied by Dr. Chacon because of it’s ability to ward off malnutrition in the poorer regions of Peru. Imperial Gold Maca™  is especially high in calcium and magnesium and has proven to be successful in promoting healthy bone formation.
