I just found the powderred version at Whole Foods today. I got it - some size 00 capsules and a capsule packing kit. But how do I know what mg fits into that capsule and how many do you take if you pack them this way?

Hmm. My 00 capsules say they hold about 900 mgs each. I did it by hand so I tend to think ours are on the "less full" side.
I would think that taking 3- 4 a day would still give you the proper amount. (We do.)
I'm hoping someone else chimes in though, cause I have the same concern!!!

Yeah - I am handfilling as well - or going to - but I have never handfilled - how do YOU do it?
Yeah I have heard you can't overdose cause its a food - but I rather not test that theory

LOL I honestly just got my hands really clean and dry and also had a small spoon and a small funnel and good movie handy. I was surprised at how full I could fill them, with all of those things. Oh, also, I used a really big bowl to work in. I just put a few tablespoons of maca in it, and went to work, while watching my movie.

I've taken up to five a day and only a gassy stomach at the very worst so I don't think you can do much harm with it. HTH!
