Feelin' Macho With Maca

If you ask me, a lot of these super foods have some pretty weird names. All the superheroes kept simple names like Spiderman, Wonder Woman, Batman, etc. Then we get to super foods and we hear the names acai, maca, camu camu, chia; we spend half the time just figuring out how to pronounce them.


Well, unfortunately, we are unable to adopt superhero powers, but organic maca powder can make us feel like we can! Maca root, a member of the cruciferous vegetable family along with broccoli and cauliflower, is providing benefits that exceed the need to fly or climb up walls. However, after learning about the energy it can provide your body, I will not stop you from trying after supplementing with this nutritious veggie.


Organic maca powder originates in the mountains of South America, mainly in high ones of Peru (draxe.com). The nutrient profile is outstanding, as it contains more calcium than milk and 8 of the essential amino acids, all while being vegetarian and vegan-friendly. It is well known for the energy production it gives, so supplementing pre-workout or in the morning is strongly advised. When it comes to helping both male and female, organic maca root powder can have different effects on hormones. No matter the gender, each effect is a good one, but let’s take a look at how they differentiate.


Women can greatly benefit from organic maca root powder in two ways. One, it can aid in PMS, PCOS, and menopause. It can help control hormone levels, therefore balancing out estrogen in the body (draxe.com). Next, it can also be a fertility and sexual health booster. When hormones are balanced, we tend to see improvement in mood due to our serotonin levels being on track again. Serotonin plays the largest role when it comes to how one feels. Without balanced serotonin, many feel anxiety and depression resulting in low libido. Looks like organic maca powder may be the superhero for single ladies.


For the male counterpart, maca root also assists with fertility and testosterone levels. When it comes to helping fertility for men, organic maca root powder is the most beneficial. This color of maca has been shown to increase production, mobility, and volume of sperm (draxe.com). Just like the ladies, with unbalanced serotonin levels comes lack of sex drive; even for men believe it or not! Maca adheres the same way in the male body to help in making sure serotonin is regulated properly. With that being said, feel free to get a cool cape or disguising mask, because who knows what your body will be accomplishing with organic maca powder. Start with about a tablespoon a day to begin seeing your health become super!
