Maca powder benefits
So, what exactly are the benefits of Maca powder? There are many…
Rich in vitamins and minerals
Maca root is a good source of carbs and fiber and is low in fat. It’s also rich in vitamin C, copper, iron, as well as potassium, vitamin B6 and manganese. These vitamins and minerals are essential for sustaining overall health.
Research shows that after at least six weeks of Maca ingestion, sexual desire is increased in both men and women. So if you’re looking to improve your love life, this natural aphrodisiac might just be the hit you need!
Help with infertility
Related to the libido-boosting qualities of Maca, this supplement can also increase men’s fertility by improving both the quality and quantity of semen.
May help relieve menopause symptoms
This Peruvian plant has been shown to aid hormonal regulation, which in turn can alleviate hormone-related menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness and sleep problems.
A natural mood-booster
Compounds called flavonoids contained in Maca are associated with reduced signs of anxiety and depression. Maca powder helps balance cortisol levels (a high-stress hormone), leaving you feeling de-stressed and happier.
Maca has been lovingly accepted into the athlete and bodybuilder community because of its energy and stamina-boosting qualities. Regular use of this supplement can, therefore, leave you feeling more energized and improve exercise performance.
Improved brain function
For centuries, Peruvian natives have been using Maca to improve children’s school performance. This tradition is now supported by modern research, linking this plant to improved cognitive function and memory.
Possible side-effects of Maca powder
Although Maca is generally considered safe to consume, there are a few conditions in which it’s to be used more cautiously:
Maca contains substances called goitrogens, which may interfere with the normal function of the thyroid glands. If you are already experiencing impaired thyroid function, make sure to discuss the use of Maca with your doctor to avoid any risk of adverse effects.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding
There is currently a shortage of information on Maca safety for pregnant and breastfeeding women, so if you are a (soon-to-be) mama, make sure to have a chat with your doctor before using this supplement.
How to use Maca powder?
Maca powder has a slightly sweet and nutty flavor which most people find enjoyable to eat. While it’s not something you’ll want to eat straight out-of-the-box by the spoonful (and it’s not recommended to do so anyway), sprinkling it on top of some oatmeal, fruit, salads, or adding it to a smoothie will give your body a boost without upsetting the taste buds!
The perfect Yummy Smoothie
- 1-2 Frozen Bananas,
- 3/4 to 1 cup Almond or Macadamia plant milk
- 1-2 tablespoon natural Peanut/Almond/macadamia nut butter
- 1 tablespoon Apu maca powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Optional extras add some cinnamon / raw cacao or carob for a rich chocolaty smoothie
- Sweetness can be adjusted by adding some dates or healthy sweeteners like stevia, honey, agave or erythritol.
