Benefits of Maca

May, 2017

As you probably know by now, I am all about HEALTHY & EASY.  Both are key.  So if something is healthy to eat, but takes too much time to prepare, it just ain’t happening.

So today I’m excited to share something I recently discovered that instantly increases my daily nutrient intake, and takes about 10 seconds to prepare!

Enter maca powder.

Maca powder is a superfood that comes from the maca plant and mainly grows in the Andes of central Peru.  It is part of the broccoli & radish family, yet it has an earthy taste with a nutty flavor.  I almost taste a little bit of butterscotch flavor!

I’ve done a bit of research on maca, and apparently it offers a wealth of benefits.  It is high in calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamins C, B-1, B-2, and E, copper, iron, and contains almost all of the essential amino acids.

Maca is actually known as a miracle food, and with all of the following benefits, I totally get it:

  • Improves sexual function in women
  • Boosts immune system
  • Normalizes menopause symptoms
  • Supports mood
  • Enhances fertility
  • Maintains bone density
  • Enhances energy

In fact, over the centuries maca has been called: magic, the food of the gods, a natural Viagra, and a miracle drug.

Count me in!

Here’s how easy it is to incorporate maca into your daily diet –

Mix one teaspoon of it into your coffee every day.  It gives your coffee a certain flavor, but it’s a GOOD flavor, I promise!  My coffee actually seems lacking now when I DON’T put it in!

If you want to start incorporating maca into your coffee, start with 1/2 teaspoon for a few days and then go up to 1 teaspoon per day.

Healthy + Easy = No Brainer
