What’s this Maca stuff? Maca powder comes from the maca root. Maca root comes from high in the Puruvian Andes. It has a long history of medicinal use and you’ll soon find out why. This herb is off the hook:
- Vitamins and Energy: Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. The high B vitamin profile means that maca energizes. Plant based athletes are all about it.
- Sexual Function: It balances hormones in both men and women, increases LIBIDO and endurance (oh Heeeyyyyyyy), and has be shown to support healthy fertility.
- Woman’s Mood: Because of the hormone balancing, maca alleviates menstrual symptoms and cramps as well as helping with menopause symptoms.
- Skin: It is also used to clear up acne. I mean, this makes total sense as it is a hormone balancer!
So, Maca is good for you. How the heck do you use it? Well, today I’m going to share a pudding recipe with you but you can also add it to smoothies, oatmeal, homemade energy bars, sky is the limit my dears.
