Made me VERY sick,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Maca Powder, 1 Pound Pouches (Grocery)
I have used other brands of Maca with no problem. This one made me very, very sick to my stomach with pain and nausea. It took me a few weeks to isolate what was making me sick - had a full gastro work-up and everything - that's how sick I was! Today, after being healthy again for 2 months I tried 1/2 tsp of maca to test and am sick and nauseous.
I know many people take maca with no problems. I only post this so those who get sick will hopefully not struggle as long as I did to figure out what is causing it.

Yes, me too. I found that Maca interacts poorly with herbs that contain phytoestrogens the hard way. I didn't have the stomach problems when I took Maca made by another company, however.
