99 out of 108 people would recommend this product31/03/2021, By IshI 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 MelissaMy hair got thicker and stopped falling out as much.

Very useful to boost the immune system in these uncertain times.11/10/2020, By LungileGreat supplement for immune health and vitality09/10/2020, By AntoinetteAbsolutely essential for me to maintain optimum vitality. Amazing06/10/2020, By TI noticed a difference within two weeks of using these tablets. I would highly recommend them!04/10/2020, By CassieLove it28/09/2020, By BarbaraI 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.20/09/2020, By FlitsSeen an increase in energy29/08/2020, By Ninagreat25/08/2020, By TamLove21/08/2020, By FaySo glad I came across this product !

I feel full of energy. I am ordering again!10/06/2020, By HeroldSfera 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 KarenNice to have01/06/2020, By JohnyWonderful28/05/2020, By TammyDelicious savory snack!26/05/2020, By CocoWell 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 PrudenceSo much better than using the powder, very efficient. Good quality10/05/2020, By Sandesh ElaineBEST MACA I EVER TRIED03/05/2020, By ElderTrue to its name01/04/2020, By LYNNGOOD FOR PCOS31/03/2020, By sandyhelps a lot with pcos29/03/2020, By LucyPersonally, 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 NaomiI 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 NikkiLove these, they definitely give me more energy19/01/2020, By AidSuper15/12/2019, By HeidiSo far so good.13/11/2019, By BrendaHi. 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 MoEach 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 ElleI 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 Imogenedid not see any results17/09/2019, By AlexandraThis 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 JoyDid not notice any improvement05/09/2019, By TessAfter using it for a month, my mood swings and hormonal dips have definitely improved.27/08/2019, By SophieMuch 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 NicoleThis Maca Extra tablets were too strong for me. Made me feel so depressed.16/07/2019, By Easy to ingestSo much easier to consume than the powder version.24/06/2019, By LizBeen 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 NicoleHad bad side affects. Made me feel moody10/06/2019, By NicoleMade me feel very down. Moody.21/02/2019, By MmidahGreat product....i’m soo happy with it11/12/2018, By KathyGreat supplement, fantastic for general health.20/11/2018, By NikkiExcellent product, really helps with energy levels15/11/2018, By AnonymousSo 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 MoI 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 AmyWorks wonders!31/10/2018, By BoipeloCould 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 AlexI'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 LiamLove macca15/10/2018, By BirgitHelps with hormone balance27/09/2018, By RowenaSfera Maca definitely helps me deal with stress. I feel wide awake and healthier when taking it21/09/2018, By BirgitIt helps regulate the hormonal balance. I feel it and I can see that it helps my daughter too19/09/2018, By KatlegoI 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 NashAmazing, 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 balance10/09/2018, By NadiaGreat adaptogen for women. This is my second bottle.07/09/2018, By CarikaUse 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 CailinI 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 MantshadiThis 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 StacyToo early to tell but it seems to be starting to work.07/08/2018, By BirgitEnjoy this product for energy06/08/2018, By EmmaI 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 NadiaMy energy is much more stable through the day.24/07/2018, By AlexI 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 RaiHave 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 while26/06/2018, By CandySo 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 FatimaFor my 20hr work days it is excellent for giving energy and keeping alert and focussed.This product and vitex and serrapetasse helped to conceive naturally and sustain my pregnancy, after 5 consecutives miscarriage23/05/2018, By sandraA GOOD HELP FOR FERTILITY07/05/2018, By zahraThis product helped with weight management (I struggle to gain weight). It also seemed to balance my hormones; pms etc.05/05/2018, By PearlSUPER GREAT STUFF FOR ENERGY,MOOD AND MENTAL HEALTH... BEEN USING FOR ONE MONTH AND I LOVE IT.01/05/2018, By AngeliqueJust 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 VeronaI 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 LidiaThis product really helps for period pains, also for my teenage daughter. I also felt less hot flashes and night sweating.26/04/2018, By jessgreat product25/04/2018, By ElmarieI 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 VeronaThis 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 WinnieI 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 friends31/03/2018, By SeithatiBalanced my hormones and improved my energy levels15/01/2018, By BronI 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 FatimaGreat product. Helps to normalize irregular periods.21/12/2017, By BrendaLOVE this product! Great for hormone imbalance and menopause symptoms.16/12/2017, By CorLove the benefits of this product!
