To make sure you get nutrients from maca root in your diet every day, taking capsules is a good option. Also, if too busy and do not have time to prepare early morning maca shake, capsules are a great and a convenient alternative. Capsules are also a good option in case you really dislike a nutty and earthly taste of raw maca powder.
Maca capsules are made from dried maca roots are ground to powder, packed and then sold in capsules as food supplement. These products are designed to be both healthy and convenient.
Producers are usually putting about 500 milligrams of ground, dried maca in each capsule. Maca capsules are then sold in bottles of 100 capsules with pure maca root.
Maca Capsules Dosage
Companies selling maca in capsules are recommending 3-6 capsules a day or between 2000 and 3000 mg per day. This amount will provide you an optimal dose. Some people are taking even more capsules. How many capsules you take, will depend on your own needs, if you plan to take black maca or red maca or if you are a man, a woman or active athlete.
Good to know: With maca, you have a safe, effective, nontoxic and non addictive way to significantly improve your overall well being, without the hazards of prescription drugs (In toxicity studies conducted in the U.S., maca showed absolutely no toxicity).
Maca benefits with maca capsules are as same as with other maca products.
P.S. make sure you take capsules every day for optimal results. In order to avoid maca side effects it is recommended to start with only one capsule a day, and then increase gradually the amount to see where your limits are.
“Everything in moderation for best and safe results.”
