... didn't really measure- I think I was taking too much). I wanted to control hot flashes. I do believe it relived my flashes, however after 3 weeks in I started experience stomach pains- similar to gas and bloating. 3 weeks later I reflected on my diet and thought about maca. I stopped taking the maca. I have not experienced the pain. Could I be allergic? Or could I have been taking too much? It helped the hot flashes... thanks
From the good people here:
Maca is available commercially in several dosage forms including powder, liquid, tablets, and capsules. Most commercial Web sites recommend a daily dose of 1 dried maca extract 450 mg capsule 3 times daily taken orally with food."
3 heaped teaspoons is just over 20 grams, so you have been taking at least 15 times the recommended dose.
