Destress with Maca Root

Posted by The Maca Team on 15th May 2024

This time of year may find you getting ready for another round of finals, or trying to wrap up that big project at work before you take your annual vacation. Whatever the reason, stress and anxiety tend to weigh heavily on you when the stakes are high. You’re probably facing the temptation to overcaffeinate and overextend as you try to power through whatever it is that’s got you so wound up. But avoid the temptation to binge on sugary caffeinated beverages to get you through and focus instead on foods and beverages that are good for you. Hydrating and eating well are key to managing stress and anxiety, and getting away from the computer screen for a while to stretch your legs won’t hurt, either.

How can maca root help you manage stress and anxiety when you need it the most?

Did you know that lots of stress can negatively impact your overall health? Chronic stress can contribute toward high blood pressure, heart disease, and more. You may find yourself experiencing lots of headaches, depression and anxiety, upset stomach, or worse. According to the American Psychological Association, more than a quarter of Americans surveyed in 2022 reported being so stressed out by their daily lives that they could hardly function; and nearly 70% reported suffering from extreme anxiety on a regular basis.

Whatever the cause, the facts are clear: stress is bad for you. So what can maca root do for you when you’re feeling stressed out?

We’ve talked extensively about maca as an adaptogen, or a naturally-derived substance that helps the body respond to a wide variety of stressors. Adaptogens work at a molecular level by regulating the balance between the hypothalamic, pituitary, and adrenal glands, which are responsible for the stress response in your body.

That’s where maca root comes in. Proper nutrition is key to ensuring your body is prepared to handle stress, and maca is chock-full of essential nutrients as a superfood. Maca also contains two unique nutrients known as macaenes and macamides, which play a role in contributing toward your body’s hormonal balance. They also possess powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Maca also boosts your energy and can help improve focus and mental acuity, which are essential when you’re knee-deep in a highly detailed and extremely important task like that final essay, or your department’s budget report.

Like any dietary change, you have to put in the work before you can expect to see results. Regular maca consumption pays off - within weeks you may find yourself less stressed out, and feeling more energetic. Mix maca root in with your favorite herbal tea, or take a couple droppers of liquid maca extract in the morning.
