This superfood chocolate milk hits the sweet craving, powers up the energy tanks, has nothing but natural goodness and genuinely tastes freakin' awesome! I get such happy tastebuds with every sip the health benefits really are just added perks, but they are vast...
Maca root is a potent superfood, so of course it's full of all the superfood essentials - vitamins, minerals, fibre, amino acids (protein building blocks) and good fatty acids. Yes yes, all good stuff, however, it's how those goodies act within the body that makes this one of my fave superfoods. It is reported to benefit adrenal and glandular balancing, strength, endurance, libido and sexual function, hormonal regulation and associated mood swings - basically translated; better stress management, more energy, more sex, less grumps! Seriously friends - get some Maca in your lives!
This is not to say that the raw cacao has been bumped to second chair. With oodles of disease-fighting antioxidants and lots of serotonin a.k.a the happy hormone, this mood boosting, natural anti-depressant works wonders alongside the maca. Nobody puts cacao in the corner! (Ahh Patrick Swayze - I still swoon...hmm, maybe enough Maca for Georgie!!).
