    Best form of Maca to buy? (for libido)


    Done a few forum searches and it seems the general consensus is 5-10g a day seems to work really well. Wondering what the most effective brands are? Don't know if I should go with capsules or if I will have better results with raw powder, what do you find works best?

    Thanks

    hey criticalbench, I notice you mention 5-10g of Maca alot for upping libido. How long typically before you feel libido effects? Need to cycle?? Do you just buy normal organic powder or whatever? I'm confused on the difference between that, or 4:1 extracts etc.

    Thanks alot

    I always thought Trib was awesome for this. Unfortunately it made me a loose canon. Maca on the other hand makes me feel excellent in all aspects.

    I've tried now brand powdered for cost but am using swansons premium 4:1 extract at 6 500g caps 3x day for 9 grams total. I've used maca 3 times before with it only working once. It toke me a couple weeks to feel it. I'd really like to know the best quality/potentcy for the price. swanson is the cheapest capsules..having a hard time finding a good powder supplier? I'm stacking with goji,longjack,trib,and mucuna for libido. just started 3 days ago . so far nothing

    i just buy plain bulk maca from mountain rose herbs or nuts online. 10g has a little effect even the first day. a little bit of libido rise, but it also seems to enhance orgasms too.

    This. Just toss a teaspoon or two in your protein shake. Works like a charm for me, but makes me aggressive/beyatchy.

    The effects of gamma-oryzanol supplementation during resistance exercise training.
    Int J Sport Nutr. 1997
    To determine the effectiveness of gamma-oryzanol supplementation, weight-trained males were randomly divided into supplemented (G-O) and control placebo (Con) groups. The G-O group ingested 500 mg.day-1 of gamma-oryzanol according to manufacturer's instructions. Test batteries were administered before (T1), after 4 weeks (T2), and after 9 weeks (T3) of a periodized resistance exercise program. Both groups demonstrated significant increases in 1 repetition maximum muscular strength (bench press and squat) and vertical jump power, with no differences between the groups. No differences between groups were observed for measures of circulating concentrations of hormones (testosterone, cortisol, estradiol, growth hormone, insulin, beta-endorphin), minerals (calcium, magnesium), binding protein (albumin), or blood lipids (total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL-cholesterol). Resting cardiovascular variables decreased similarly for both groups. These data suggest that 9 weeks of 500 mg.day-1 of gamma-oryzanol supplementation does not influence performance or related physiological parameters in moderately weight-trained males.

    Really wish this guy would stfu about gamma-o.

    Do some research before you shoot off your mouth. The study you posted is on 500mg of GO in powder form. We are the only company that uses GO in a liquid form.

    What else you got?

    How about what do you have that is an actual human scientific study using liquid? I've seen some that show health benefits which is nice, but haven't seen anything that shows more.
