Lovin' My Nutribullet With A Side Of Maca

Remember how I mentioned a while back that I wanted to try out the nutritional supplement called Maca?

Well, I've been throwing it into my daily Nutribullet shakes for about a week and I can't say that I notice a difference in my body.

However, I do notice the taste. Maca has a very strong earthy taste. Although I use all kinds of berries to try to disguise the taste, I can still taste it. However, considering the many benefits of the supplement, I will continue to chug it down.

Maca was discovered and used by the Incas in Peru. Actually, what we consider Maca these days is really the ground up form of the Maca Root. It is widely marketed in nutrition stores in a powder or pill form. There have been several clinical trials using Maca and it's been found that it favorably effects energy levels, moods and can decrease anxiety naturally. It is also marketed as an herb that can improve sexual desire. Though, this conclusion has been found to be flippy-floppy. Some studies say it works and others say it's all hokey-pokey.

I personally am using it to boost my energy levels and of course my moods. You can never be too positive right?!?! And if it makes me desire things...well then it does. Hahaha!

It's also fairly cheap. The bag that I show pictured above is $10 and will last forever since I'm only using a tablespoon at most in each shake.

I'm not saying that you should go out and try it, but it does have it's positives if you have issues with anxiety. I'm giving it another few weeks to see if I notice a real change in my energy and/or moods.

I'll let you all know if it's really all it's cracked up to be!
