View Full Version : Need help with Maca!!
02-14-2007, 11:38 AM
I do take a tablespoon of maca a day. I feel my body needs that much not less. I hate the stuff. To me, dirt would probably taste better! I take it in powder form mixed with juice. No matter what type of juice I drink it in, it still seems as if alot is left in the glass. I am wondering if I would get the benefits of taking raw maca in pill form. I read a thread before where someone mentioned to manually putting it in capsules.. but I dont have that much patience! Is there a store online that sells raw maca in pill form? And is it enough to get the same benefits??

I usually add a tablespoon in my chocolate mylk in the morning or in my green smoothie. I personally like the taste of it. It DOES taste like dirt - Earthy to me. I don't know about maca in a capsule/pill form. Have you googled this? You have to be careful with geletin capsules. Most (if they don't say they are not) are made from beef geletin. :eek:

For those who, like me, strongly dislike the taste of maca:
I did the maca thing years ago. I decided to stop it because I don't like the taste. My own personal conviction is that I don't need to swallow something unpalatable in the mindset of "good medicine". If I can't enjoy something alone, as a meal, without the need to alter or mask the taste, then it's probably not a good food for me.
I changed to eating whole, ripe, fresh, organic (when available and affordable) food, and my body has thanked me.

Maca tastes best mixed with cacao. Even better with cacao & goji betters. I actually ended up really enjoying it.
