Our organic Peruvian maca is grown at high altitudes in the Andes mountain ranges of Peru. It contains no fillers and is 100% pure. This Peruvian maca root is naturally sun dried in maca plantations 14,000 ft. above sea level.
I wanted to share maca (shop here) and its benefits because I am an advocate and living proof of its effectiveness and immense health benefits. So let me tell you why its is so amazing for just about anyone.
First and foremost Maca is an adaptogen. What adaptogens do is help balance your body's ability to deal with stress and regulate your hormones so you achieve overall balance. This naturally ensures greater energy and vitality.
From a nutritional standpoint it is no surprise maca is beneficial because it is full of vitamins and minerals which our body loves. It is particularly rich in minerals like Calcium, Magnesium and Iron and is also rich in vitamins B1, B,2, B6, B12, C & E. Okay, since thats established and while its great, maca gets even better!
As far as athletic performance goes, this is my top herb of choice. So wether you run sprints, workout at the gym, play a sport, practice yoga or even walk or jog regularly, maca will benefit you immensely.
Whether you are male or female, maca works on your adrenal system to balance your hormones and provides you with strength, focus and balance of mind to work harder and perform better in your sport or physical activity of choice.
Another property of maca that makes it special for athletes and active people specifically, is that it enables faster recovery after the body is put through stress. It makes you feel amazing because your body will be in balance, and we all know the old adage "Balance is Key".
Now, lets talk energy. Personally, I can feel a boost of energy almost immediately after taking 1 or 2 teaspoons of maca. I take it every day or every other day, either in my smoothie or sometimes simply mixed in some water (stay tuned for other maca recipes). You will certainly feel a surge of energy, clarity and vitality.
Theres still more!
Maca will boost your sex drive. Yep, thats right! This powerful herb is known to be a natural aphrodisiac and therefore boosts your sex drive and provides an overall sense of well being. As I mentioned earlier, the fact that it keeps our hormones in balance also enables the senses to be heightened. This works for both men and women.
I would like to end by saying that the longer you take maca, the more you will feel its benefits, as your body becomes in tune and balanced with nature.
