Maca is also known as Peruvian Ginseng and has been used for endurance, energy, stamina and hormonal balance for over 2,000 years. It was taken by Inca warriors before battle. These days, the Inca tribes’ Peruvian descendants continue to cultivate this amazing root.
Organic Burst Maca, which is a unique blend of four different maca varieties, is harvested by hand in the Peruvian Andes where the soil is incredibly rich in nutrients.
Maca is a fantastic accompaniment to your That Girl™ workout programme, and here’s why:
Maca contains compounds that have been found to boost energy naturally. The rich content of iron in Organic Burst Maca means that oxygen is delivered your muscle cells more efficiently. Anyone for another set of squats?
Strenuous exercise, along with emotional stress and drinking too much coffee (among other triggers), raises our levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which, if consistently high, can zap our energy and impact our health in the long term. Maca has been shown in studies to reduce cortisol levels in the body, promoting hormonal balance. And… relax!
Maca has a regulating effect on our complex system of hormones, it can normalise testosterone, progesterone and oestrogen in both men and women, which can mean improved athletic performance, as well as boosting sexual desire (and performance). Bring out your inner tiger!
Fancy adding maca to your routine? Organic Burst Maca tastes malty with hints of caramel so it can add a slight sweetness to your smoothie, porridge or yoghurt, which we think you’ll enjoy!
