What is the recommended dosage?
We recommend starting with one scoop (1/2 scoop if your body is not accustomed to high quality adrenal support and greens or if you're usually sensitive to supplements). As your body detoxes, you can then work your way up to 2 or 3 scoops daily. A scoop is approximately 3.6 grams.
What are the directions for use? Can we drink it in a hot beverage?
Mighty Maca tastes great! You can mix it in water, juice, hot tea or with your favorite shake/smoothie. Mighty Maca tastes great in a hot tea with lemon juice. Mix it up and be creative with your Mighty Maca routine!
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 and see if you also need a scoop later in the 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.

Does Mighty Maca Plus 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-Green16.
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 Mighty Maca and the Alkalizing Detox Beverage you drink first thing in the morning, while you are still fasting. However, if you are consistently alkaline and achieving ketosis, then of course you can leave out the Mighty Maca in your shake when your break fast and see how you do.
I just started Mighty Maca plus 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 so good!) that happens quite quickly when you begin using Mighty Maca. This can cause things like headaches, gas and bloating, digestive issues and just generally feeling badly. 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 is 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 the dosage of Mighty Maca Plus to half or even less 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 with 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.
