In order to balance out my decadent indulgences this holiday season, I usually make at least one healthy smoothie in the morning to at least start the day right. Included in these smoothies, I always manage to throw in some maca. And not just any maca; Vega Maca!
Ancient, native Peruvians used maca root for thousands of years as both a food and a tonic. They believed maca increased energy and stamina.
Also known as Peruvian ginseng, maca shows great potential as an adaptogen, according to foremost maca researchers; this adaptogenic potential may account for the balancing, energizing and stress-reducing effects reported by some maca users. You can use Vega Maca to: promote vitality, contribute to a feeling of overall well-being, maintain good health, and provide antioxidant support.
Certified organic, traditionally grown in the Andean highlands and sustainably harvested in partnership with Peruvian farmers, premium Vega Maca is produced using a proprietary heat extrusion process called gelatinization to improve absorption and concentrate the active micronutrients within.
That last bit is why I prefer Vega Maca to any other maca powder on the shelf; their gelatinization process concentrates the micronutrients so that I get the maximum benefit for my purchase, be it in capsule or powder form.
Obviously if you're making a smoothie I'd say go for the powder, but the capsules can be a great solution if you don't have time to make a smoothie in the morning. Win-win!
Thank you to Vega for another amazing product. I couldn't survive the holidays without them!
