I've read about maca on this board, and it's fertility benefits. So I bought some the other day, but it was about $17 dollars for 60 350mg capsules. I've read that you should take 2,000 to 3,000mgs a day, and at that rate, it's going to get very expensive.
I've read that some people take it in powder form; is that cheaper? Is there any particular source for cheap maca?

Thanks

actually, a lot of people on here take 2000-3000 mg - i know beloved had written on a maca thread that she took 3000. i take 2000 mg a day and so does DH. i have read that plenty of people take way lower doses, but i've seen a lot of message board types taking 2000-3000 for TTC, so i figured i'd go with it.

we get this which is 400 tablets with 500 mg for just under $40 and free shipping. i am so checking out lucky vitamin, though. i had a hard time finding it for less than $10 (incl. shipping) for 100 tablets w/500 mg.

In one of the super-long maca threads, someone talked about how they encapsulated the powder themselves because they couldn't stomach the taste of it alone but couldn't afford the capsules.

I get straight powder and mix it with orange juice or milk. I bought 2.2lbs from vitacost for $28 and take 1.5-2tsp a day (which is within the 2000-3000 mg range, though I couldn't give you the exact number off the top of my head), which should last me at least 4 months.
