Superfood Spotlight on Adaptogenic Super Herb, Maca

With our new Organic Elixirs, you easily incorporate nourishing ingredients into your day and give your body a boost in whichever way you’d like. Whether it’s nourishing your gut with our Belly Elixir, detoxifying from the inside out with our Beauty Elixir or improving mental stamina with our Brain Elixir, each variety offers unique benefits. One of our favorite adaptogenic super herbs in our new Brain Elixir is Maca Root.


Like all adaptogens, maca can act as your body’s own personal thermostat, adapting  – and working to amplify the body’s ability to self-regulate key systems, offering balance and support wherever you particularly need. Maca is well-known for regulating hormones and increasing energy levels and stamina.


Maca is high in a long list of vitamins and nutrients including over 20 amino acids, B vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, magnesium, copper, iron and many more. Along with its nutritional benefits, maca is well known to increase stamina and supply the body with “feel good” endorphins.


Maca is a relative of the cruciferous family, like broccoli and cabbage, and it is grown mostly high in the mountains of South America. The root is generally grounded down into a powder that can be incorporated into a wide variety of different foods and beverages and has a rather pleasant, nutty flavor.


Along with easy-to-digest fermented greens and functional ingredients, our Brain Elixir can be mixed with water or juice, added to a smoothie or blended into your favorite recipe for an easy way to incorporate maca. Improve mood, increase stamina and keep yourself balanced with one easy scoop!
