The weather is changing, the days are shorter and colder. Besides, it's the perfect time of year to get cozy with loved ones at home. While you and so many others might already be thinking ahead to next year’s fitness goals, there’s no reason to deny yourself a healthy helping of mini marshmallows for your hot chocolate - especially if you’re serving up maca, too.
Maca for Your Immune System
You can hear it now: the dreaded sniffling and sneezing on the other side of the cubicle wall. It’s essential to be on top of your health, especially during the holidays when there are so many added sources of stress.
We’ve written about Maca for Immune System Support in the past, and we think it’s information that bears repeating. Recent research has lent weight to the ancient Incas' belief that regularly consuming maca can improve your overall well-being. A 2022 laboratory study found that maca exercised an immunomodulatory effect on subjects, meaning that it demonstrated a noticeable impact on their immune system.
Maca is called a “functional food” for a reason. Functional foods are generally organic, nutrient-rich products like meats, fruits, and veggies that possess the bioactive components associated with stimulating your body’s natural healthy response to things like stress and strenuous exercise. Maca is also considered an adaptogen, which means it exhibits an anti-inflammatory and overall “balancing” effect on the body. That’s why it’s recommended for everything from bouncing back from a workout, to maintaining your hormonal health.
Maca for Staying on your Feet
There’s so much to do before the end of the year! In addition to the obligatory family gatherings, many of us have our hands full with travel, shopping, and tying up any loose ends left before the start of 2024. Responsibilities have a tendency to pile up when you’re distracted.
All that running around is exhausting, and it’s hard to maintain the energy you’ll need to get through the season. If you’ve kept up with your maca routine, though, it might not be as difficult! One of the numerous benefits associated with consuming maca throughout history is an increase in energy and stamina. That means that maca can help you stay on your feet longer, which is great when you’re running between department meetings or scrambling to get the house ready for guests.
Treat Yourself to Maca
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by so many responsibilities. That’s why it’s more important than ever to make health-conscious decisions that can improve your quality of life. As part of a balanced diet and exercise plan, maca can do just that.
Whether you’re visiting with friends and relatives or looking forward to some quiet time at home, it’s easy to fit maca root into your regular routine.
Once you’ve figured out your ideal serving size, you can mix a couple spoonfuls of our organic, non-GMO maca powder into your morning beverage or space your maca capsules throughout the day. Our liquid maca extracts are convenient for carrying in your purse or backpack.
