Take Maca on the Go this Summer

Take Maca on the Go this Summer

Posted by The Maca Team on 19th Jun 2024

It’s hot out there, and depending on where you’re located geographically, you might still just be “pre-heating.” But it’s the time of year to see and be seen outdoors, and you can’t be expected to miss out on all the summer fun because of a little sun. Staying hydrated is key to properly enjoying the season, and you should be sure to eat plenty of whole foods with enough sustenance to power you through hot, tiring days on the beach or by the poolside. Avoid overdoing it on sugary, alcoholic beverages or quick snacks that are high in salt and low on nutrients. Stick to fruits and veggies, drink plenty of water, and of course, keep up with your daily dose of maca.

It’s the time of year for vacations, and it’s the time of year that a lot of us let our routines start to slide. With the kids home from school there’s not as much time for housework or for the gym, and of course, there’s only so much time you can take off from work to make the most of your annual holiday.

But that’s no excuse to slack off on what matters most: your health. It may be harder to prep a balanced dinner with a constant parade of visitors through the kitchen, but you can at least be sure you’ve got a few staples ready at home and for on the go…and maca can easily be one of them. 

Take Maca Along for the Ride

You don’t have to worry about the mess or fuss of mixing maca powder into anything - just a few drops under the tongue whenever it’s most convenient for you, and you’ve got your daily dose of maca covered.

Of course, if you’re boarding a plane for an international adventure, you’ve got those pesky liquid restrictions to worry about. But no need to worry! Maca capsules come in a tub that can easily be packed into your luggage, and a few capsules throughout the day means you’ve kept up with your maca regimen even as you chase the kids through London. And you sure could use the energy, couldn’t you?

Maca By the Pool

But who says you have to make any grandiose plans to make the most of the summer? Time spent with family at the park or at a relative’s pool can mean precious memories you’ll treasure for years to come. Beat the heat by toting along a refreshing maca beverage. You could play it simple with an iced maca coffee or maca power juice, but why not show off for the in-laws with some iced chicha de maca, a delicious traditional Peruvian fermented beverage?
