has energy-metabolising effects. Also known to stabilise hormone levels and the endocrine system: studies showed it helps reduce the discomfort of the menopause and helps with PMS.
and describes itself as
Maca powder has been used in Peru for endurance and energy for over 2000 years. Maca root is called the Peruvian Ginseng due a variety and density of essential minerals. Organic Burst® Maca is grown organically according to the old traditional method. Our maca powder is cultivated in the Andes Mountains 4100 meters above sea level where no other plant can thrive. Organic Burst® Maca is raw, pure and organic, preserving all the nutrient density of this unique superfood.It sounded a good choice for me as it is suppose to help with menopause symptoms, and as I am sadly at that stage of life I thought it had to be worth a try.
- Strengthens the body and increases stamina due to the perfect mineral balance.
- Stabilises hormone levels. Maca powder contains bioactive compounds, plant sterols and prostaglandins that help regulate the endocrine system.
- Healthy energy levels. Maca powder is high in phosphorus, manganese and iron. Iron promotes oxygen transport thus helping us fight fatigue and tiredness.
- Metabolism. Zinc in maca powder increases carbohydrate and macronutrient metabolism.
- Healthy bones and teeth due to high levels of calcium.
- Nourishes the skin. Maca powder is rich in zinc, which helps maintain good skin.
Now I eat a fairly healthy diet and I sprinkle a combination of sunflowers, sesame and pumpkin seeds on my cereal every morning which contains a lot of the micronutrients.
My biggest issue in my life is tiredness, and lack of motivation to do anything much apart from work. Also fancied it due to the calcium levels as I have never taken dairy then it has become important to me to do something about that ( maybe it is already to late).
Well I have worked my way through this tub and have to admit I do have a bit more get up and go, do want to get up off the couch in an evening after work, and am more willing to go out and walk the dog every evening. I was not keen on the taste, sort of like burnt seaweed taste, but I have been drinking it in with something flavoured and its not overpowering enough that you notice it.
They do various other organic products, and one of the things I really like about this company is things like
Our products are made using nutrient-dense 100% organic superfoods. We do not use any chemicals, fillers or extracts in our products – only pure and natural raw ingredients. We only source from suppliers who engage in sustainable development of local communities.
The sales from baobab powder help employ thousands of poor families in rural Africa. They also help the environment by preventing deforestation.
I have placed an order myself with this company and feel enough of a difference to keep on with it for another few months at least to see the long term impact for myself.
This is a review post with the product being provided for free, but this is an honest review of my findings.
