Maca can be taken in capsule form (with the powder in the capsule) or as a powder or as a concentrated extract. The capsules generally contain 500 mg of powder. Most people take it in powder form by blending it in smoothies or simply taking it by dissolving in water. I recommend in powder form so that your body absorbs it immediately. It does have a unique nutty flavor, a bit of an aftertaste but it’s not strong and OK for most people. If you are sensitive to the taste then taking it in capsule form would be a better option for you.
