Benefits of Maca Powder

I have been doing a lot of research on superfoods lately (shock right? 🙂 ).

Some of the most beneficial superfoods are actually ones that many of us have never even heard of before.

When it comes to finding superfoods, Nativas Naturals is one of the best online sites you can find them on.

They make sure all of their products are the best quality, and their variety is phenomenal.

Since each product is extremely nutrient dense, you only need a very small amount (sometimes less than a teaspoon) to reap the benefits.  Therefore, they can last for a long time.

Recently, I purchased Maca Powder from them.

Maca powder is most known for its’ energy boosting and stress reducing qualities (macapowderbenefits.net). 

Along with this, it can

1. increase fertility

2. help heal wounds

3. improve skin

4. help to increase muscle mass

and of course

5. increase overall health

(benefits and side effects of macs powder)

So pretty much, it’s all the benefits of an energy drink without the negative ingredients

Maca powder can be very easily incorporated into your diet.  You can either buy it in the powder form and mix it into whatever you’d like, or you could even take it in a tablet form.

If you are interested in seeing recipes using this superfood, I would more than happily come up with some!

Why Acai?

I don’t know about you, but over the past few years, pretty much any smoothie shop or froyo shop I went to somehow advertised acai in some of their products.  I never really thought anything of it.  The most thought … Continue reading
