We’re deep in the heart of the holiday season. It’s a busy time of year for many, with deadlines looming for school or work and a rotating cast of friends and family passing by. When you’re juggling so many responsibilities at once, it’s all too easy to drop the ball. We’re constantly inundated with marketing for the latest, greatest toy, and oftentimes that means fast fashion and tech devices that are destined for a landfill. But who has the time and energy to shop for uniquely meaningful gifts for everyone on their list, never mind the budget? We have an idea for showing your loved ones how much their happiness and health means to you: giving them the gift of maca.
Maca Root for Health and Fitness
Maybe Aunt Lisa is a long time fitness guru, or your brother is looking for support with building a new health regimen. Wherever you are on your health journey, adding maca to your diet (or gifting it to a loved one) is a great way to rethink your approach to getting fit.
Nutritional supplements and weight-loss medications often come with a hefty price tag, never mind the time and expense of obtaining a prescription or trying out a variety of supposed “quick fix” solutions. While it’s always a good idea to consult with a trusted medical professional before making any significant changes to your diet and level of physical activity, consuming maca root is a time-tested approach to getting into shape. Once popular among Inca warriors in its native Peruvian Andes, maca root has long been celebrated for its performance-enhancing properties. Maca isn’t part of a fad diet, though - it’s a nutrient-rich superfood that’s been found to have noteworthy impact on the physical fitness of those who regularly ingest it.
We’re proud to sponsor numerous athletes who are happy to tout the role maca has played in helping them achieve their goals. Research has found that in addition to boosting energy, maca helps the body build muscle and recover more quickly from strenuous exercise. So if you’re still shopping for a gift for a workout buddy, consider introducing them to one of our organic Peruvian maca root products. Black maca root has been linked to muscle building and increased stamina and strength, and products like our raw black maca powder are great mix-ins for protein smoothies.
Maca Root for Mental Clarity
Maybe a loved one wants to focus on mindfulness in 2024, or is getting ready for a big exam. Did you know that maca root has long been associated with improved cognitive function? It’s believed that regularly consuming maca contributes toward heightened mental acuity and focus. Research performed in 2016 linked maca root with enhanced motor coordination, and suggested maca root’s potential for slowing age-related cognitive decline.
And in 2017, scientists investigating the potential benefits of a diet containing maca have come to refer to the superfood as a “neuroprotectant,” which may be used to “target oxidative stress, stabilization of membranes, inactivation of enzymes, inhibition of apoptosis, or inhibition of inflammation so as to inhibit or decrease the cellular death and neuronal injury.” In short - maca can help keep your brain healthy and operating at optimum capacity, which is great for academic overachievers and business professionals.
