Essential Living Foods Organic Vitality Smoothie Mix contains a blend of three different maca varieties. Harvested from the Andes Mountains in Peru, the Incans revered Maca for its unique ability to increase energy, drive, and endurance. Tapping into their philosophy, we created an innovative Maca blend that combines red, black, and yellow Maca with the traditional Ayurvedic herb Ashwagandha, known for its rejuvenating properties, and Cordy-Gen, a concentrated form of Cordyceps, to support stamina and metabolism. Feel how our delicious Vitality Blend is the perfect synergy of ancient wisdom and modern nutrition!
This is an adaptogen smoothie blend, great for hormone balancing, mental focus and anxiety. Unlike caffeine, which can potentially stimulate too much, most people find that maca will wake them up if they're feeling low, but calm them down if they're wired. Researchers believe this is because Maca contains unique phytochemicals — unique alkaloids known as macamides and macaines — that appear to have a modulating effect on the hypothalamus-pituitary axis, the system governing multiple aspects of health and daily function.
