I think I can be quoted in saying "you can only do/take so much in a day". I'm so obsessed with superfoods - nuts, seeds, spices, powders - you name it! But there's just so much you can take (and absorb) in a day. With that being said, I decided I needed some Maca back in my life so I'm trying out a new brand, and I'll report back on it in a couple weeks!
I love Maca for its list of health benefits:
increased energy & endurance
loaded with vitamins B6, B12, Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium & Iron
regulates hormonal imbalances
Everyone is different, but I can really feel a difference in my energy levels, endurance & more importantly, my recovery from my workouts when using Maca Powder.
This ancient superfood is known for its potency and recommended starting with as little as an 1/8 of a teaspoon - 1/2 teaspoon and building up to 1 teaspoon per serving. Additionally, Maca should be cycled. For example, 1 day on/ 1 day off or if you use it for several days in a row, take 2-3 days off.
Who's used this fabulous superfood powder!? What kind of experience have you had with it? xx
