Will I Have To Take MACA For The Rest of My Life
Not exactly, since Imperial Gold Maca™ is not replacing hormones in men or women, it is fine to start using this food herb at any time and to stop without any danger to the body. It is advisable not to use it continuously but to alternate periods of taking the herb with periods of rest from the herb to maximize the body's response to Imperial Gold Maca™. For example, stay on 90 - 120 days and off for 30 days might be a good rest period for the body so it doesn't require larger dosages to achieve the same previous positive effects.

How Does MACA Compare to Other Menopausal Herbs Like Black Cohosh or Other Women's Formulas? Imperial Gold Maca™ provides the ingredients to support menopausal health. The herb works through the hypothalamus and pituitary to help insure balanced and healthy hormone levels in the body. Many men and women notice the difference within a week! Imperial Gold Maca™ helps promote sexual functioning, insures vaginal lubrication, and, in general, brings about all the benefits of healthy, balanced hormone levels in the body. For men, increased testosterone levels usually increase substantially. Black Cohosh, licorice root, and soy products all contain weak plant estrogens and have not been satisfying to most women. Many women do not feel a difference when they take these herbs but the effect is not lasting.  For this reason Imperial Gold Maca™  is a better choice and the results are quick and very rewarding. Imperial Gold Maca™
bulk powders are Certified Organic, Certified Vegan and Certified Kosher and is considered the highest rated maca product available with the species used Lepidium peruvianum Chacon.

How Well Does Maca Work For Erectile Dysfunction? Imperial Gold Maca™
is not a drug or medicine and works to feed the entire endocrine system so the body can become more in harmony naturally allowing testosterone levels to build  thus increasing sperm count and overall male function. See Libido 
See Understanding E.D

MACA's Effect on Sports Performance The head trainer of a major league U.S. baseball team ordered MACA for the entire team as an integral part of their sports nutrition program after using it himself and experiencing that it supported his energy. Men who work out have begun to use Imperial Gold Maca™ to promote stamina and personal trainers are recommending it to their clients. Athletes notice a difference within an hour and excel with greater endurance. Read some of the testimonials.   See Soccer Team Success

Can MACA Be Taken With Vitamins? Many people have used Imperial Gold Maca™ with Vitamins  and they have not experienced any negative reactions, in fact it enhances the overall effect by allowing the body to become more in harmony that much quicker.

How Effective Is MACA As An Aphrodisiac?  Imperial Gold Maca's™ ability to act as an aphrodisiac is well known. Ask almost any South American if they have ever heard of MACA and they will probably smile back and say "Oh, yes, Spanish Viagra™". MACA is not Viagra™, but it does nurture the hormonal system of men and women so well that a healthy hormonal balance is restored and the body can operate at greater optimum conditions. Some studies have recently indicated that the reason for the libido enhancing effect of Imperial Gold Maca™ is the nourishing effect it has on the body allowing testosterone and estrogen levels to regulate based on the bodies needs.

How Does MACA Balance Hormones In Men & Women?  Imperial Gold Maca™ is an Adaptogen herb. This means the herb will work in the body according to the needs, age and gender of the person using Imperial Gold Maca™. If a woman is entering menopause and is peri-menopausal, begins having symptoms related to a change in hormone production such as fatigue, night sweats, dizziness or palpitations, it is very likely her hormones are no longer being produced in amounts that can work in concert with each other. For example, her estrogen production may be normal but her progesterone production is unable to keep up with it. Or, as she begins menopause, her estrogen production may drop off leaving her with too much progesterone. Or the production of both these hormones could be too low for her to maintain a good quality of life before and after menopause. Imperial Gold Maca™ has been shown to promote the body's production of the proper amounts of hormones to maintain health. Even in men testosterone levels will increase, sexual potency will be maintained throughout a man's lifetime. 

Who Is Dr. Gloria Chacon de Popovici ? Gloria Chacon de Popovici, PhD, is the biologist from South America who, in 1960, isolated the 4 alkaloids responsible for the medicinal and nutritional effects of MACA. Dr. Chacon, who has worked with the United Nations and Universities in both North and South America, she lives her life as a powerful commitment to bringing the knowledge of MACA to world countries concerned with hormonally related illnesses, malnutrition and osteoporosis. Dr. Chacon said it best to our founder in 1999.

"It is an honor for me to have discovered scientifically 40 years ago, the nutritional and medicinal value of this unique species of "MACA" (Lepidium peruvianum Chacon) ,the Andes plant that our ancestors have known about for thousands of years. I sincerely hope that Imperial Gold Maca™, a 100% natural product gives our planet a better quality of life not only in the present but in the future as well." Dr. Gloria Chacon de Popovici11/29/99

Are There Different Grades And Varieties Of Maca?  Just like tea and coffee Maca is being grown and sold in many parts of South America under the name MACA, but their are huge differences in flavor, aroma, taste, nutritional and medicinal benefits. Because Maca is so popular, marketers have found an item to exploit and unless a consumer is aware of the differences in species of plants, area's and regions grown there is a good chance of buying poor quality that just doesn't deliver the full experience that Maca is known for. Also being sold are standardized pharmaceutical brands under many different brand names. Budget priced Maca products bring disappointment and a bad first time experience.

Imperial Gold Maca
™ is gown on its own land in the Andean mountains of Peru and has the credentials to document it's true source, plus in addition, it is produced at the National University of Agriculture at La Molina, Peru just a short distance from Lima. The University is an agricultural teaching college and prepares and produces the premium organic Imperial Gold Maca™ crops.

Are There Testimonials From User's Of MACA ? Internationally there are thousand's of men and women who have used Imperial Gold Maca™ (Lepidium peruvianum Chacon) Here is what some of them are saying. 
See Testimonials These testimonials are actual users who have sent there comments.

How Much Imperial Gold Maca™ Should I Take ?
The standard nourishing qualities are found most beneficial when 3 capsules are taken twice daily or  6 capsules at all at once at 600mg each allowing for a dosage of 3600mg. daily. If you use our bulk powder of Imperial Gold Maca™ one teaspoon daily is nearly the same as taking the six capsules. There is never a question of taking to much, since Imperial Gold Maca™ is an all natural premium quality food herb it is very safe in larger dosages. If you find you have way to much energy from this minimum dosage, then you can adjust downward the intake to satisfy your personal needs. Athletes and body builders will consume much larger dosages to sustain there activities.

How Effective is MACA For Fertility ? Imperial Gold Maca™ may increase a  man and woman's ability to conceive rather dramatically. This happens because of Imperial Gold Maca's™ ability to promote the production of the Luteneinizing Hormone (LH). The LH causes ovulation. Imperial Gold Maca™ has also been shown to increase sperm counts in men. Research studies on small animals were conducted by Dr. Gloria Chacon with extremely successful results in almost all cases! (These studies will be published later in the year.) It is also worth noting that a males sperm count will increase in the millions and will better increase the fertility environment for a couple. It is also noted that Imperial Gold Maca™ is very safe to take after a birth to help restore the hormonal levels and if you are breast feeding will produce a very high quality milk. Should the infant be given Imperial Gold Maca™ is asked frequently, and the answer is after a year old you can give 1/2 - 1 capsule or 1/8 - 1/4 tsp.

The key to success with Imperial Gold Maca™ is continued daily usage without missing any days. Follow the 30 days off 90 days on usage as noted above.

Are There Any Side Effect's ? After thousands of years of use as a food in South America and the recent extensive increase in the consumption of Imperial Gold Maca™ in this country and Europe, there are no known side effects regardless of dosage size. However, ongoing concerns exist about the species and purity of MACA being sold by marketers who are exploiting this Peruvian miracle herb food. For this reason Imperial Gold Maca™ uses carefully grown plants that are hand picked and are the same as  Dr. Gloria Chacon's discovery of species and purity of MACA (Lepidium peruvianum Chacon) and as having been grown in accordance with her her research discoveries more than 40 years ago. See Growing Fields

What Is The Difference Between Other MACA And Yours ?
Other species of MACA like plants grow wild and at low altitudes in parts of Columbia, Bolivia, Argentina and Peru. The Maca like plants are then harvested under less than optimal conditions with flowers and weeds that grow at these lower altitudes. Not all Maca are the same, with reduced medicinal properties they serve of minimal value. See different grades of Maca above. It's important to understand that Maca just like coffee and tea come in many grades, varieties and species of plants.

Imperial Gold Maca™ is produced at our own facilities in Peru and is guaranteed to be the very best Maca product available today. "If its not Imperial Gold Maca™, its just not Maca" Imperial Gold Maca™ is guaranteed to be grown at the proper altitude of 13000+ feet and above. No other plants grow at this altitude and survive. Imperial Gold Maca™ is 100% pure premium organic MACA root and is guaranteed to be the  correct species and to contain the necessary alkaloids that have the medicinal properties and benefits it is known for.

Can Children Use Maca ? Dr. Gloria Chacon has performed tests over a period of time with the assistance of Dr. Jorge Aguila Calderon and Dr. Freddy Madrid Gironda on local children in Peru, with similar results as adults received. Children who had trouble with attention and staying focused, were relieved considerably of these symptoms, in addition, they become more alert and calmer. Imperial Gold Maca™ is a very safe product.

What Is Standardized Maca ?
True medicinal plants grow naturally and are available through harvesting and old fashioned farming. In the last few years the term STANDARDIZED has come into the botanical market place which is the laboratory version of herbs. Here is were you will find budget priced brands with little benefits. We at  believe that pharmaceutical quality just doesn't agree with our all natural philosophy,  We use only the finest and best premium quality organic MACA roots that are hand picked, and that is why Imperial Gold Maca™ is so popular and effective. Just ask our customers who have tried other brands and came loyally back to Imperial Gold Maca™ See Our Growing Fields

How Does Gelatinized Maca Differ From Standard Maca?  Gelatinized Imperial Gold Maca™ is more easily digestible and can be better digested than regular Imperial Gold Maca™ powder because all the starch has been removed as a result of the technology developed by the National University of Agriculture in La Molina, Peru. It's important to understand that marketers who attempt to sell Gelatinized Maca on the internet are selling either oven toasted Maca or some other thing that is very questionable. The University has issued several notices about this in the last few years.
See Gelatinization Difference  
See Internet Marketers Exposed  If you purchase a Gelatinized product be certain that it has the National University of Agriculture's Official Certificate of Analysis and there official labels to guarantee you are getting the real thing!
