Excellent product. Once I've tried it, it was part of my daily supplements.

This is definitely helping me with my pcos. My cycle is now regular

I believe this has helped me manage PCOS and infertility. I have conceived once taking this along with chasteberry and other vitamins and supplements aimed at promoting a thicker endometrium.
24/01/2022, By KJB
I started taking Maca to help build up my endometrium, which is on the thin side. I have been struggling to fall pregnant with my 2nd baby. I also have PCOS and have recently had surgery to remove endometriosis. I am seeking the natural route to balance hormones and I can say that my endometrium seems to have thickened after only 1 month on the product. I am also taking some other supplements to help, such as vitamin E, omega 3 (fish oil), L-arginine and chaste berry.

Bought for hubby, early days, but he's not so stressed and generally feels "better"
21/04/2021, By Rory
Maca always has mixed reviews. I hoped it would work for me but sadly I haven't seen noticeable improvement.
21/04/2021, By Louida
It hasn't done anything for me. I've read so many positive reviews and I am disappointed that it didn't work out for me. I would recommend it to someone with the hope that it would work for them.
31/03/2021, By Ish
I was unsure what to expect given the mixed reviews I read on the site, but these capsules definitely improved my mood and energy levels from the first couple of days that I started to take them. I just needed one capsule a day to keep me going all day and I have low iron and vitamin B levels, so definitely felt a difference.
I've now bought the maca root powder, but always forget to mix it in my cereal or tea, so taking a capsule is way easier and more convenient.
04/03/2021, By Melissa
My hair got thicker and stopped falling out as much. My cycle became more regulated and my breasts grew!
06/02/2021, By Faith
It’s better than taking the powdered form. In terms of taste

Wonderful product, especially if you don't like the taste of Maca powder. Very useful to boost the immune system in these uncertain times.

I noticed a difference within two weeks of using these tablets. I would highly recommend them!
04/10/2020, By Cassie
Love it
28/09/2020, By Barbara
I use this product for its adaptogenic properties. It is much easier to take as a capsule rather than the powder, which I find difficult to drink.

I noticed the redness & breakouts on my chin improving within the first week. Overall skin health is much better! I feel full of energy. I am ordering again!
10/06/2020, By Herold
Sfera products and packaging are convenient. I didn't use this for long enough to see the effects - was advised to stop due to contraception interactions. Otherwise, I recommend this!
03/06/2020, By Karen
Nice to have

Delicious savory snack!
26/05/2020, By Coco
Well I used firstly the hydrolyzed maca powder since it was easier for my body to absorb. It was great and I had no bad side effects but my bust went from 33" to 35"... I'm literally stuck with that now. I'm going to try the capsules for efficiency and see how that goes along with my workout routine. So I just wanted to point out that if something doesn't work for you in more than 3months... Leave it. Your body doesn't want it. Pay close attention to how your body reacts.
21/05/2020, By Prudence
So much better than using the powder, very efficient. Good quality

helps a lot with pcos
29/03/2020, By Lucy
Personally, didn't see much of a difference. So I wouldn't buy it again, but I don't have anything against it. And it seems to have helped a lot of other people, which is great!
18/03/2020, By Naomi
I bought this product and shared it with my daughter. She started taking this capsule, after the 2nd day, she had all the
Energy and didnt feel so tired anymore. That first night she cleaned her place, did washing etc. She is very impressed with it.
My, however, is another case. It made me feel nauseous, my mouth was dry. I felt sick. I only took it for 2 days and the effects lasted a week. So this product did not agree with me.
12/02/2020, By Nikki
Love these, they definitely give me more energy

So far so good.
13/11/2019, By Brenda
Hi. Might be good to put more info in the description, saying how long it takes to work etc. I found they gave me awful insomnia and noticed no improvement in energy. Also made me ridiculously emotional and seemed to make my depression worse. Should I persevere and give it more time ? Would have been nice if the supplier advised on this.
01/11/2019, By Mo
Each to his own, but unfortunately these Maca capsules did not improve my general energy levels and hormone balancing albeit after three months consistent use (I tried!). Had high hopes, much more convenient than the powder form, but alas.
25/09/2019, By Elle
I tried this product for various reasons but the one effect that stands out is the relief of period pains, I've used it over 2 cycles and it definitely made a huge difference.
24/09/2019, By Imogene
did not see any results
17/09/2019, By Alexandra
This Maca product, being extra strength, is the only one that really alleviates my chronic depression. It has many other health benefits, but this is the most noticeable for me. I highly recommend it over antidepressants.
13/09/2019, By Joy
Did not notice any improvement
05/09/2019, By Tess
After using it for a month, my mood swings and hormonal dips have definitely improved.
27/08/2019, By Sophie
Much easier to use than the powder and really helped with moodiness. Will definitely recommend to others and have recommended it to friends.
15/08/2019, By Nicole
This Maca Extra tablets were too strong for me. Made me feel so depressed.
16/07/2019, By Easy to ingest
So much easier to consume than the powder version.
24/06/2019, By Liz
Been using it for 2 months now, hormones are much better, made allot of changes so not sure if this is the reason for it, but I am ordering another one for month three.
12/06/2019, By Nicole
Had bad side affects. Made me feel moody
10/06/2019, By Nicole
Made me feel very down. Moody.

Excellent product, really helps with energy levels
15/11/2018, By Anonymous
So convenient and very easy to digest compared to macca powder. Helps with hormone balance which in turn helped with my acne.
12/11/2018, By Mo
I tried the powder form Maca first, which is good and cost effective, but simply not as convenient as the capsules. Been using the Extra Strength Maca from Sfera for about 4 months now, one a day but doubling up during times where I need a extra boost.
02/11/2018, By Amy
Works wonders!
31/10/2018, By Boipelo
Could not see or feel any difference.
This depends on how long you took it and so on.
I prefer the actual powder which you mix in your smoothies etc.
Feels a lot more efficient.
28/10/2018, By Alex
I've been taking this Maca root product for several months now and find that it has alleviated my chronic depression when I take the recommended dose each day. It works better than an antidepressant and no side-effects.
25/10/2018, By Liam
Love macca

Helps with hormone balance
27/09/2018, By Rowena
Sfera Maca definitely helps me deal with stress. I feel wide awake and healthier when taking it
21/09/2018, By Birgit
It helps regulate the hormonal balance. I feel it and I can see that it helps my daughter too
19/09/2018, By Katlego
I have been taking this for over a month and am yet to see any improvements. Period pains remain, mood is still poor, energy low, mental endurance? None to speak of... How long should I take this before it starts to work?
17/09/2018, By Nash
Amazing, I love this product and I’m never without it unless I’m cycling it (recommended that you don’t use it continuously, I use it for a month then take one week off). Maca helps me manage my stress levels, gives me energy and ensures that my hormones are in balance
10/09/2018, By Nadia
Great adaptogen for women. This is my second bottle.
07/09/2018, By Carika
Use these tablets when your ‘that time of the month’ is on its way. It helps with cramps and headaches and taking it a day or two before will help even more. Also good for keeping your energy throughout the day.
05/09/2018, By Kathy V.
Anyone will tell you this product is amazing, and though it's not something you can immediately feel the effects of, it is essential for anyone wanting to balance hormones, deal with any kind of hormone issue, as well as just give your body a boost.
28/08/2018, By Cailin
I recommend this to everyone. It's really helped increase my energy levels, mental agility and all round sense of feeling good.
27/08/2018, By Mantshadi
This product is great for balancing your hormones (women) and it really increases my libido, also I experience less menstrual cramps. Great energy booster as well.
20/08/2018, By Stacy
Too early to tell but it seems to be starting to work.
07/08/2018, By Birgit
Enjoy this product for energy
06/08/2018, By Emma
I purchased this product based on the "extra strength" promise on the label. However, the maca is raw; it has not been gelatinised (which is best practice for creating a more concentrated dose - especially for capsules which contain small quantities of maca). Gelatinisation is simply the process of removing starch from the maca root, which produces a more concentrated powder that is easier to digest and absorb, and activates other beneficial nutrients. Faithful to Nature stocks other maca root products which are gelatinised, and I would recommend looking into purchasing one of these instead. In terms of my experience taking the product - I have noticed no effect at maximum dose (three capsules). Please update product description and labelling to state that the maca is raw.
30/07/2018, By Nadia
My energy is much more stable through the day.
24/07/2018, By Alex
I used to take an anti-depressant for chronic depression due to a chemical imbalance, but the side-effects were too severe. Since taking these Maca root pills I have no depression while taking it and no side-effects. My hubby also takes it and is happy with the product.
19/07/2018, By Rai
Have only been this product for a short while but so far results have been noticeable. Definite increase in energy and lifted mood. Looking forward to seeing increased results- will definitely be a client for a while
26/06/2018, By Candy
So far very happy with this product. I have a hypothyroid, and was feeling very down and fatigued. Since I have been using this product I definitely have been feeling a lot more rejuvenated.
12/06/2018, By Fatima
For my 20hr work days it is excellent for giving energy and keeping alert and focussed.
07/05/2018, By zahra
This product helped with weight management (I struggle to gain weight). It also seemed to balance my hormones; pms etc.
05/05/2018, By Pearl
01/05/2018, By Angelique
Just after a few days I could feel my energy levels are much better. My hormones were so out of whack, I had the worst breakout on my face. My face is clear!
29/04/2018, By Verona
I gave some of my Maca capsules to my daughter-in-law to see if it will help with her menopause symptoms. She has been using this product for two weeks now and today told me that her hot flushes completely disappeared! I have been using this product for a month now and I am very happy with the results. My mood has lifted and I feel so much happier and content. Sfera Maca has got a client for life!
28/04/2018, By Lidia
This product really helps for period pains, also for my teenage daughter. I also felt less hot flashes and night sweating.
26/04/2018, By jess
great product
25/04/2018, By Elmarie
I purchased this for myself, but luckily did more research before taking them. Maca is high in iodine, and not recommended for people with iodine allergies. Luckily my husband can still take them, so not going to waste.
07/04/2018, By Verona
This is a great product. I started using it four days ago and already feel the benefits. Happier and more energy.. I first did some research and started with a very small amount. I only used half a capsule in four days. I had to start with a small amount because I am elderly. By the third day I could feel the effect in my breasts; a slight shooting sensation which I always had in my young days. I will definitely keep on using this wonderful product.
05/04/2018, By Winnie
I am using this product now for a few months My doctor could not belief why I don't need pills for hormones on my age. I recommended this product to some of my friends
31/03/2018, By Seithati
Balanced my hormones and improved my energy levels
15/01/2018, By Bron
I have noticed a difference in my mood. On the whole, I'm a bit happier and less irritable which speaks to the hormonal balancing effect of the maca. It's also a lot nicer to take the herb in pill form rather than using the powder in smoothies etc.
08/01/2018, By Fatima
Great product. Helps to normalize irregular periods.
21/12/2017, By Brenda
LOVE this product! Great for hormone imbalance and menopause symptoms.

Excellent supplement. My libido picked up in less than a week and it feels like my stress tolerance has definitely gone up as well.
03/10/2017, By Aryn
A good energy booster and rebalancer.
03/10/2017, By Clarinda
I love the Sfera products in general, they work really well. Although I did notice an improvement in my mood, I can't say it made much difference with my PCOS
13/08/2017, By Mandy
An excellent product that has really helped keep my mood stable
11/07/2017, By Dominique
An amazing product. Improved my mood, increased libido, less pain during monthly cycle, regulated my cycle. Absolutely NO regrets!

I'm so happy I tried this product, it has always kept my hormones balanced and reduces PMS, I feel energized, always in a good mood during that time of the month. And oh boy, my libido increased too. Thank you to Faithful to Nature for this lovely product and your speedy delivery, always!
10/11/2016, By Linn
So happy I tried this product, my mood has improved noticeably and I even recommended it to a friend who is also very pleased. Thank you!
28/04/2015, By Jeanne-Marie
I am so happy I found this product. My boyfriend has a very stressful job and as such our love life has suffered for it. After taking the lowest dose for less than a week he has become less stressed and his virility has returned with a bang!!
