This past weekend was Portland Vegfest! I had a wonderful time listening to renowned vegan MD’s such as Neal Barnarn, Milton Mills, and other RD’s like Julieanna Hever! There were also products galore to sample. One of my favorites of the convention was Macaccino: The Organic Maca Root Superfood Energy Drink! Maca is a herb from the cruciferous family of plants (of the species lepidium meyenii).
Here are the top 3 reasons I love it so much!
Dense Superfood Nutrition: Maca is rich in fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur, iron, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, 20 different amino acids (with seven essential amino acids), sterols, and more. It also has trace elements such as zinc and selenium. Great for vegans!!!!
Energy without the jitters or crashing: Maca is a natural stimulant, but when you eat it, you don’t feel like you are taking a stimulant. The jitters commonly associated with energy drinks and coffee don’t happen!! Elevate your energy in the morning, on adventures, with the kids, at the office, at the gym, with each other. Not to mention it tastes delicious!!!!
Amazing benefits: Maca has been reported to Improve Mood, Improve Stamina, Improve Libido, Aid in Muscle Recovery, Improve Circulation, Ease Symptoms of Menopause, Balance Hormones, Increase Sperm Production, Improve Melatonin Production, Improve Sleep, Relieve Depression, Lessen Anxiety, Reduce Cholesterol, Balance the Endocrine System, Improve, Immunity, Enhance Memory, Improve Menstrual Disorders, Strengthen Erections, Increase Physical Performance, Reduce Hot Flashes, Reduce Lethargy, Improve Hypothyroidism, Improved Skin. So exciting!!!!!!
