5 Benefits of Maca Root

Find yourself depending on coffee for a boost in the morning? Why not try maca instead? Maca is a root from Peru; it’s a tuber, like a potato, and offers an amazing energy boost for those with low energy. Maca however, unlike coffee, offers energy in a non-caffeinated way that supports the body. That’s why I love YouthH2O because it contains Maca, as well as other amazing superfoods!

Maca is a nutritionally dense super-food that contains high amounts of minerals, vitamins, enzymes and all of the essential amino acids. Maca root is rich in B-vitamins, which are the energy vitamins, and maca is a vegetarian source of B-12. To boot, maca has high levels of bioavailable calcium and magnesium.

 

1. BALANCE OUR HORMONES

Maca root helps balance our hormones. It has helped me tremendously over the last year with this issue. Maca stimulates and nourishes the hypothalamus and pituitary glands which are the “master glands” of the body. These glands actually regulate the other glands, so when in balance they can bring balance to the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands.

 

2. HELPS WITH FERTILITY

Maca’s also a fertility enhancer and is best known for improving libido and sexual function, especially in men. For this reason, it’s earned the nickname “nature’s Viagra.”

 

3. GIVES YOU ENERGY

Within days of using maca your energy level may increase. It is also known for increasing stamina. Many athletes take maca for peak performance. If you find yourself tired most of the time, experiment with maca to see if it helps

 

4. MOOD ENHANCER

I love this, especially when it comes to PMS. Helps with anxiety and depression and the symptoms associated with PMS.

 

5. OTHER USES

Proponents claim that maca can also benefit:

  • depression
  • erectile dysfunction
  • libido
  • promote hair growth
  • PCOS
  • thyroid conditions
  • promote weight loss

 

So definitely give it a try! I take YouthH2O twice a day and be ready to see the amazing benefits it offers!

Thanks for reading,
