9 Reasons to add our Timeless Maca powder into your daily regemine.
Aphrodisiac: Looking to get a little behind closed doors? Maca it up! Dubbed Peruvian “ginseng,” maca powder has been used for thousands of years as a natural aphrodisiac, and has even been used to naturally treat Erectile Dysfunction.
Hormone & Mood Balance: Consuming small amounts (no more than 1 tablespoon) of maca each day can help balance out your hormones. This leveling out of hormones can help ease depression, thereby boosting your mood, energy level, and focus, while lowering your anxiety.
Fertility: The black form of maca has been linked to increasing sperm count in men. The fact that maca helps to regulate hormone levels can increase fertility in women.
Vitamin & Mineral Rich: Full of Vitamins B, C, and E, maca powder is a great source for antioxidants and keeping your immune system healthy. It also contains calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, and phosphorous.
Medicinal Properties: Used to treat osteoporosis, stomach cancer, depression, leukemia, and tuberculosis, maca is used in the naturopathic medical industry worldwide.
Energy Boosting: A popular alternative to coffee, maca is known for elevating your energy level and also increasing your stamina. Put this in your afternoon pick-me-up smoothie and have energy for a jog after work!
Stress Relief: Similar to its mood and energy-boosting characteristics, maca helps you kick back, chill the eff out, and unwind. My personal side note: since going for a little roll in the hay always loosens you up, the aphrodisiac quality to maca also helps in the stress relief department.
Clear Skin: For those with mild acne and/or skin irritation, maca may be a natural remedy. The nutrient quality and hormone balancing characteristics of maca help keep your skin healthy, vibrant, and clear.
Muscle Building: Both men and women can enjoy the benefits of maca powder, both from a sexuality standpoint and from a fitness angle, as it has been linked to aiding in the development of muscle. Just ask your local body builders – they’ll tell you!
