Fitness and nutrition go hand in hand when it comes to results and this Superfood is something everyone should be taking!
Maca has many benefits such as enhancing your workout performance, increasing energy levels and boosting mental function. Maca is an adaptogen, which is a group of plants that contain properties that either boost energy or relieve stress, depending on what the body needs.
Develops Lean Muscle! Maca contains 18 of the 20 amino acids needed in the human body. This improves your performance, muscle recovery and growth. Maca also contains natural properties that boost metabolic function helping results in losing body fat.
Brings You Into Balance! Testosterone is the hormone associated with producing muscle mass, relieving pain, and boosting metabolism. Maca helps your body naturally balance hormones linked to maintaining lean muscle. Maca helps to reduce excess oestrogen levels that can increase due to poor diet and stress, excessive oestrogen can affect your weight and how quickly you recover from a workout!
Improves Your Workout! Great to take before and after a workout Maca root is not only alkaline-forming to prevent inflammation, it’s also free of stimulants and 100% natural. Maca helps boost your energy before a workout and aids rest mentally and physically after a workout! Maca naturally lowers physical and emotional stress in the body. So its great to help your body recover and for your overall health!
Lowers Stress! Your adrenal glands are incredibly important when it comes to taking care of your health and optimizing your energy. When the body is constantly stressed, the adrenals are forced to produce cortisol in high amounts. This can be beneficial before and during a workout when we need energy, but our body isn’t meant to produce it when resting or not in a state of physical stress. Maca lowers cortisol naturally helping the body heal on all levels much more quickly.
As little as a teaspoon a day is effective enough to get the benefits! Try my awesome smoothie below and get Maca in your life!
