It’s the time of year when many people find themselves taking to the road (or the skies) to visit with friends and family in celebration of the season. While it’s always nice to see loved ones you haven’t gotten to spend time with in a while, travel also often means the disruption of routines that are important to maintaining your health - routines like diet and exercise. Who’s thinking about counting calories when there’s pumpkin pie on the table?
(Don’t count calories - that’s not healthy!)
What is healthy is sticking with your dedication to maca. And though traveling with a bag of powdered maca root is understandably daunting, we offer several options for maca products that are easy and convenient to travel with.
Maca Liquid Extract for Convenience
Our liquid maca extracts are made through a proprietary four-step process that condenses all the nutrients you’ll find in your maca powder into a mildly-flavored extract that’s made for your convenience. Our amber dropper bottles contain about two fluid ounces of maca, and are small enough that you can easily tuck them into a coat pocket or purse for your travel.
How do you enjoy your maca liquid extract? It can be as easy as adding a couple droppersful to your hot chocolate or morning coffee. We recommend holding a dropper’s worth of liquid extract beneath your tongue for about 30 seconds in order to let it absorb more easily. Liquid maca is overall quicker to absorb into the body than maca powder products, ensuring that you benefit from your dedication to your maca routine faster.
Maca Capsules on the Go
Many countries still restrict the amount of liquids you can pack into your carry-on, so if you’re worried about safely stashing a glass bottle in your checked bag, toting our maca capsules along for the journey is your best solution.
We always recommend our maca capsules for people who don’t care for the flavor of maca. It’s probably the easiest way to work maca into your diet, and it allows you to space your maca serving size throughout the day - for example, you might take two capsules in the morning and then two with lunch. Keep in mind that your maca serving size will depend on a number of factors, including your size and weight, so it’s important to have that figured out before you begin regularly consuming maca.
