Organic Yellow Maca Powder - Non-GMO, Kosher, Raw Ground Maca Root, Vegan, Flour, Bulk - by Food to Live
Raw Maca root comes from the family of plants closely related to broccoli. Maca is so healthy that is considered a superfood. The botanical name of the plant is Lepidium Meyenii, also known as Peruvian ginseng. Healers have been using it for hundreds of years, and today, everyone can get all the benefits of maca root with the top-quality Organic Maca Powder from Food To Live®.
Maca Powder Benefit: Women and Men
The health benefits of maca root come from its ability to affect the hormonal balance within the body. The most important of its effects is, without a doubt, the fertility boost.
The special advantages of maca root for women include:
* Alleviating the unpleasant menopause symptoms.
* Reducing anxiety and stress.
* Enhancing fertility through the stimulation of the pituitary gland.
The benefits of consuming maca for men are:
* Restoring male libido.
* Improving sperm motility and increasing sperm count.
* Normalizing hormone levels.
For both men and women maca powder can act as a mild aphrodisiac. It's the combination of this effect with the fertility boost offered by the plant that is considered to be the secret of the overall high fertility in Peru, where maca still remains a staple kitchen ingredient.
Maca Powder Nutrition
Maca powder benefits aren't restricted to hormones only. Bodybuilders and vegans, in particular, should consider adding maca flour to their meals as it contains a variety of valuable nutrients and proteins. Note that due to the effect of this superfood on the hormone levels, one should be very careful about combining it with steroids or other supplements of questionable nature.
Peruvian maca powder is considered safe and the fact that people have been consuming it for centuries definitely proves this. However, it's advised that you consult a doctor about adding it to your diet if you are suffering from any chronic health conditions or take medications that affect hormones.
Every spoonful of Food To Live® Maca Powder gives you a small boost of the following nutrients:
* Vitamin B6
* Vitamin C
Due to this particular combination of elements, this superfood has a strong positive effect on your immune system. It also promotes bone health and can enhance the body's natural ability to absorb calcium due to vitamin C.
Take 2-3 tablespoons of maca powder a day for a week or month and cycle it with an equal period of 'rest' to get all the benefits it has to offer.
Maca Powder Recipes and Storage Tips
The taste of maca powder is difficult to describe aside from it being mildly earthy-nutty with a note of butterscotch to boot. As this ingredient is mostly used in smoothies, you can easily mask the taste if you don't enjoy it. Our favorite recipe is mixing 2 ½ cups of nut milk with a tablespoon of maca powder, 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder, and 2 pitted dates.
Store Food To Live® Certified Organic Maca Powder in an airtight container and keep it away from heat and humidity.
