maca vs pine pollen what are your experiences?

I've tried raw and gelatinized (cooked) yellow maca as I live in Peru and the raw maca is no where near as potent as the gelatinized version at least for immediate effects. However I've boiled up black maca in its dried whole food state and it was pretty effective on immediate energy levels. I haven't tried pine pollen yet but was hoping you guys would share your experiences with either product or both and explain which one you prefer.

i think your right about the libido effect i find royal jelly to be more effective. Well the pine pollen comes from the pine which has testosterone mimicking properties in it, it's easily absorbed and the pine tree itself is the longest living tree which is often the most dominant tree in forests. It is full of goodies including all 22 amino acids, reservatrol, coq10 and a ton of vitamins and minerals, in my opinion it's natures perfect food and people are raving about it much more than maca so i was curious what yall think. It's been used in chinese and korean medicine for thousands of years

Maca tastes like old library books. I cannot recommend it for this reason.

Powdered maca, gelatinized or not, absolutely wrecks my guts. Gassy, grainy baby-poop diarrhea. And it gives me a putrid BO, for some reason.

Man, that is one thing I do not put into my body.

I've had Maca in powdered form, wish I had access to the actual roots. It has a very nice effect. I think the whole libido increase is overrated, but what it does is it helps provide the minerals (magnesium, zinc, etc.) needed for health so that you do feel an increase in energy levels.

From what I understand, you'd need to cycle these things, that is take it for a week, and then don't take it for a while.

I've never used or heard of pine pollen, what is it supposed to do?
