This next one is something I use a couple times a week and it has done WONDERS for my health. Maca Root is a radish-like root vegetable that grows in high altitudes in Peru. Maca root is commonly ground into a powder and is loaded with vitamins, amino-acids and helps boost energy. But that’s not all! My favorite thing about Maca root powder is it helps regulate, support and balance the hormone system. Hello anti-acne herb! Maca root is an adaptogen (I love that word), sharing many similarities with ginseng. Adaptogens are substances that raise your body’s resistance to diseases; therefore, improving physiological and emotional health. BOOM!! Another must-have! (I put a tablespoon in my oatmeal or smoothies 2-3 times a week)
Maca Root Powder Can be found at GNC, The Vitamin Shoppe, Fresh and Natural Foods (Shoreview) and Whole Foods Market.
