As a Holistic Lifestyle Expert, I have a passion for working with women to better empower themselves to take control of their health and well-being. Today I am excited to share why I love this whole-food super-food – Maca – and how you can incorporate it into your routine.
Maca is a nutritious plant root that helps to balance hormone levels, reduce stress, improve energy and improve your sex drive. Maca is an adaptogen that helps increase your body’s resistance to stress to help mitigate the effects of the stress hormone cortisol. Maca can help you sleep better, deal with stress more effectively, help with weight management, overall energy and vitality. Available in both powder or capsule form, I recommend powder, as it is easier to incorporate into recipes. 1-3 tsp daily added into your smoothie, oatmeal or a morning elixir (shown below) is the perfect way to optimize the use of this amazing super food.
