I've seen the black maca extract at my local health food store. It's by a company called MacaPro and it's very expensive. Their black maca has an extract strength of 18:1 and the yellow extract has a strength of 10:1. So if this is the brand you're using then I would go with the black since it's stronger.

Maca root reknown as an 'adrenal herb' in the nutrition industry. Its root vegetable of the Andes.
Considered an aphrodisiac without hormonal impact (not a testo-booster).
It is probably a bit tame for a forum like this. Yohimbe / Yohimbine (sp. I forget the spelling) is the sort of primodeal stuff thats popular on a builders forum, viz. I can't see it being worth the money.

The source I'm talking about is in the start of the thread and I think it's pretty cheap. I've noticed some differences and I'm wondering if others are noticing the same things too.

What differences did you note? I have ordered the maca monster from the source you're referring too but it's not arrived yet.

1HP-so how's the maca monster?
For me it didn't taste the best, but it was very potent. It's probably the best for what ever maca does to the reproductive system I could really feel it working somewhere around the prostrate. It felt like stimulation of some sort. If I remember right, 1-2 tsp/day seemed right.
Now since nobody replied about the Black Maca... I think it might be the most androgenic. I notice that my body odor in the pits get REAL STRONG if I take over a tbs/day. It reminds me of a teenage boy who hasn't started using deoderant yet. So I think it might be changing my body chemistry.
It could be all in my head, but it seems like women seem "extra interested" when I'm taking maca-expecially the black.
I've got an order of the yellow and maca monster comming so I can give those a try again.

I can't find this info anywhere, I'm just going by what I'm noticing.
With my source, I think the "yellow" is a mix of the 3. The black is just black.
Chuck have you tried the maca monster? That's some good stuff
BTW looking forward to trying DTCH in the future.

Interesting, never heard of the different "colors". Mine appears to be yellow bulk form but works pretty well at 1-2tsp per day. I get a little too amped on it sometimes so I rarely use it for more than a few days. Keep meaning to run it for a month or so.

The maca monster is white/slightly yellow. It's quite a bit stronger then other maca's I've tried but then again, since I buy it by the kilo I've also been taking more of it. Its effects are very strong @ ~15 grams a day which is about the highest I went, it has more benefits then pure libido, you simply feel awesome and very relaxed/cheerfull. I absolutely hate the taste, also very hard to mask mixing it in your shakes. I cap it these days, but you have to take a lot of caps
10-13-2009, 09:40 AM
Yeah, the taste...or aftertaste I should say..is kinda rough.

1-2 tsp is same as how many NOW brand caps of Maca and how many grams????

Chocolate might cover the maca taste...I usually dump it in my protein shake but even then you can taste it.

Dsade- put me down for some bars!
Try the maca monster-it's very strong. It's not the best tasting though.
The yellow tastes great. Maca is one of those things that start tasting really good after you get a feel(craving) for it.
1hp-15g of the monster is nuts! I maxed out at 5-10. Did you feel the "prostrate stimulation"??? There's something to maca that I can't figure out. I wish there was more research on it.
If you want to try the black, you have to email Ken and specifically ask for it. It's not listed on his site.
and capped maca monster is WAY better than NOWs capped maca!

Thanks for your input Chuck, reps.
The monster maca I'm talking about is a 19:1 extract. Its quite potent in effect anyway.
10-16-2009, 06:09 AM
Just tried top grade ginseng over the past two days (same supplier) - kicks like crazy. Its expensive but the energy effect is unreal. Its like lump of rock and I'll need a hammer to break up a root. Worth try. Whether it keeps its potency over time dunn.
Chuck seems to be saying is that the DTHC dosage is max. dosage.
Chuck: Why is Tribulus so high on the DHTC list of ingredients? Maca I can understand, pretty cheap and looks potent (at least smells it). Long Jack I can understand from the reports - it is supposed to be really potent (Ken the website guru's view). I've tried Tribulus but it no effect at all. Where are you sourcing?

I used maca before from a local healthstore. it was alright but I didn't try it for long enough to know if it really worked.

You should try "black maca" in order to improve your spermatogenesis. Indeed, I have just found a research, whose authors, mostly form Universidad Cayetano Heredia (a Peruvian college specialized in medicine) told that black maca is the best compared to the other "ecotypes" such as "yellow" or "red" maca.
Moreover, if you like further information, I suggest you to visit Jonas Cabezudo's web page, a notorious Peruvian scientific and entrepeneur who can provide you with further information about this matter.
bye and best regards,

I went through 2 tubs of Maca monster I bought from Ken. 2 heaping teaspoons a day. I didn't notice any effect whatsoever. *shrugs*
