What is the recommended dosage?
6 capsules a day are optimal, but it could take some days getting used to them if you are new to Mighty Maca® Menopause Capsules. Start out at 3 and increase from there.
What time of day should I take it?
Everyone is different so listen to your body and see how you do with it. Start with taking it at the same time in the morning or mid afternoon. It is energizing but not a stimulant. Dr. Anna has even had some clients that like it in the evening and because it is an adaptogen, it does not interrupt sleep for those that do not suffer with high cortisol at nighttime.

Do Mighty Maca® Menopause Capsules break your fast?
The answer about breaking your fast is this: It depends on what you are trying to achieve. There are so many types of fasts. With Keto-Green, we are trying to get our body into Ketosis and be a fat burner; but most importantly become alkaline! Dr Anna includes 3 levels of fasting in her book, Keto-Green 16. Many experienced fasters come to this program and test acidic when they break their fast. Our goal is to get our bodies alkaline, reduce inflammation and feel balanced. Dr. Anna teaches us that when we start a Keto-Green lifestyle, the most important part to focus on is getting alkaline first! That is why taking Mighty Maca® Menopause Capsules is okay to take first thing in the morning, while you are still fasting. However, if you are consistently alkaline and achieve ketosis, then of course you can opt not to take Mighty Maca® Menopause Capsules when you break your fast and see how you do.
I just started Mighty Maca® Menopause Capsules and feel a lot of detoxification/stomach issues/bloating. What should I do?
The most common "intolerance" to this product is detoxification (this is what makes Mighty Maca® Menopause Capsules so good!) which happens quite quickly when you begin using Mighty Maca® Menopause Capsules. This can cause things like headaches, gas and bloating, digestive issues, and just generally feeling bad. If these are your symptoms, just know that detoxification is a GOOD thing, even though it may be uncomfortable during the process. The symptoms usually pass within a few days to a week and a good electrolyte supplement, like LMNT powder or Tri-Salts (both of which Dr. Anna recommends), can help a lot. If you have a very sensitive digestive system, to begin with, adding this product may exasperate it temporarily. Dr. Anna's Mighty Maca® Menopause Capsules are generally well tolerated by most women and contains a number of other helpful ingredients that help with energy, hormone balance, and increased nutrition. Some people may need to reduce their optimal serving of Mighty Maca® Menopause Capsules to half and then gradually increase it over time so your body slowly goes through the detox and becomes accustomed to the rich fiber and green healthy gut nutrients. If you are suffering from gut health issues, Dr. Anna highly recommends taking a high-quality probiotic like her product, Gut Thrive as well as digestive enzymes- Keto-Green Enzymes.
Does maca increase estrogen?
Maca is not estrogenic; it is an adaptogen and helps balance estrogen levels.

In the case of women having a previous breast cancer diagnosis and/or treatment, she strongly suggests women always talk with their oncologists. Learn more here.
