Benefits of Maca and Maca Malt Smoothie Recipe

Today I am sharing about Maca Root at Quick and Easy, Cheap and Healthy.

Maca root is a super-food that is packed full of nutritious goodness. It’s loaded with over 60 micronutrients, 18 amino acids and 20 fatty acids. Maca is 40% potassium, 10% calcium and contains vitamins A, B, C, D, E, B12, B1, 2, 3, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, silica and zinc.

It is believed that maca is most beneficial because of its effect on the endocrine system. Maca is an endocrine modulator and the endocrine system includes all of the body’s glands and the hormones they secrete.  Hormones regulate many, many things including tissue function, mood, growth and sexual development.

You can find the recipe and learn how maca can help regulate hormones, increase libido and more at Quick and Easy, Cheap and Healthy.
