Maca Capsules: Bursting with Energy

Move over synthetic energy supplements, Zokiva’s got the latest and greatest energy booster – Maca Capsules.  The newest addition to the Zokiva pantry is jam packed with energy-enhancing nutrients.  It’s so powerful you’ll probably be bursting with energy within just a few days of starting a regimen of Maca Capsules.

We’re bringing the ancient superfood of the Peruvian Andes Mountains right to your doorstep to give you the best all-natural energy.  Believe it or not, Maca is related to the radish but it has as sweet butterscotch and oat scent and flavor.  It is overflowing with an alphabet of vitamins (A, B, C, D & E) as well as minerals including iron, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, iodine, potassium and magnesium, among others.  It also contains body sustaining amino acids, protein, fiber and essential fatty acids.  Each of these nutrients contributes to Maca’s energy-inducing phenomena. 

First, Maca Capsules contains a good deal of iron, which increases red blood cells that oxygenate blood and invigorate the entire body.  Amino acids and proteins help build muscles and also contribute to many neurotransmitter functions that allow the body to operate smoothly.  Essential fatty acids are used to help metabolize food into energy.  And all of the incredible nutrients of Maca help sustain the body for optimal function.  In fact, Maca is known as an adaptogen because it elevates the body’s operations to a higher level of health.

Maca doesn’t just help boost energy in the traditional sense.  It truly provides 360 degrees of energy for the entire body.  In addition to helping you through your daily activities, Maca Capsules promote stamina, strength and endurance for physical movement.  This makes Maca Capsules an excellent supplement for those who lead active lifestyles or want to improve their ability to exercise and athletic performance.

Maca Capsules help with emotional and hormonal balance as well.  Maca has been used to ease depression by energizing the body.  More energy helps maintain a positive attitude and increases motivation.  Maca can also help increase libido and sexual desire, as well as relieve some of the fatigue and lethargy associated with menopause. 

As an adaptogen, Maca also energizes your insides so your entire body performs at a higher level.  This unique type of superfood supports sustained health and well-being.  Find your true energy potential with Zokiva’s new Maca Capsules!

Improve your Heart and Blood Health with Maca

If you’ve ever taken a look at a diagram of the cardiovascular system, you’ll notice it is much like a huge roadmap of interconnected highways, thoroughfares and even some back roads.  Blood is carried to all the major and minor attractions of the body.  From your brain to your feet, every movement, every thought, every breath is possible because the heart pumps blood through the body.  Therefore, healthy blood and a strong heart are essential to our health.  Luckily, Zokiva now has one of the most potent natural superfoods for cardiovascular health, Maca.

Maca is a great source of iron, which is required for healthy blood.  Iron produces and oxygenates red blood cells and carries oxygen to the lungs, which is then dispersed throughout the body.  When we don’t have enough iron to make red blood cells, it’s known as iron deficiency anemia.  Without red blood cells, our bodies don’t get enough oxygen and we feel tired.  Lack of oxygen can make us physically lethargic, but may also cause our brain to feel sluggish too.  The CDC estimates that 10% of women are iron deficient.  It’s especially important for women to get enough iron during pregnancy, when the body is working overtime to pump blood to mother and baby.

With a variety of nutrients including protein, fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, Maca strengthens muscles.  And the heart is one very important muscular organ!  When the heart is strong it pumps blood properly throughout the body, keeping other organs and systems running smoothly too.  Maca can help improve circulation to ensure the whole body is getting the oxygenated blood it needs, and also stabilizes blood pressure to maintain normal levels. 

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and stroke is the fourth most common cause of death.  Plus, many people suffer from non-fatal heart attacks, stroke and other diseases and live painfully with negative symptoms.  Heart disease and stroke are the result of plaque build-up in arteries that prevent blood from flowing freely to and from the heart and brain.  When blood is cut off from these vital organs, the results can be deadly.  Risk factors of heart disease and stroke include smoking, being over weight, lack of physical activity, high blood pressure and unstable blood sugar levels.  And one of the biggest risk factors is not getting proper heart-healthy nutrition. 

A heart-healthy diet is one that is packed with fruits and vegetables with tons of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  It’s also important to limit high fat and high cholesterol foods.  Instead chose lean proteins like chicken, turkey, beans, legumes and low-fat dairy products.  Also be sure to get enough whole grains for fiber.  The best way to ensure a heart-healthy diet is through a superfood supplement like Maca.  Its super simple to add Maca to many foods you eat regularly, like yogurt, soups, smoothies and more. 

When you add heart-friendly herb such as Maca, you know you’re getting your daily nutrients as a preventative measure against heart disease and stroke.  Plus you’re getting your fill of essential iron to oxygenate your blood, improve circulation and steady your blood pressure, naturally.  Keep those cardiovascular highways healthy and strong with Maca!

Maca: An All-Natural Daily Energy Boost

Looking for some energy today?  Everyone once in awhile everyone experiences those days when you feel drained, sluggish and down right tired.  It’s usually the body’s way of saying we need to slow down, get more rest or perhaps we’re not getting the proper nutrition to sustain ourselves.  Zokiva offers many superfoods that contain a host of nutrients to boost bodies into great condition.  Our newest addition is Maca, an age-old root that can revitalize and rejuvenate health and wellness by energizing the body. 

Energy is the key to so many aspects of life.  And for us humans, most of our energy comes from food.  Good nutrition invigorates our bodies like gas fuels cars and sunlight gives plants the energy they need to grow.  Maca is an amazing plant that has been used to enhance energy for centuries.  In times past, it was given to warriors before they went into battle.  Maca is perfectly formulated with protein, amino acids, fiber, vitamins, minerals and fatty acids to strengthen and refresh the body. 

When the body is properly fueled, it has greater potential to work at maximum capacity.  You’ve probably experimented with this yourself, even if you didn’t realize it.  On days you eat plenty of protein, fiber, good fats, complex carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables, you most likely feel better and have more energy – physically, mentally and emotionally – to be your best.  On days when you eat less healthy, maybe too much fried fatty foods or sweets, you feel lethargic and weary.  You can’t expect your body to run as smoothly when you aren’t offering it all of the nutrients it needs to thrive.  Even when you can’t get all of that great nutrition in your diet, you can supplement with superfoods like Maca!

Maca has specific energy-enhancing properties and is gaining attention from amateur and professional athletes for its ability to deliver strength, endurance and stamina during exercise.  From the basketball court to soccer field, or simply a steady jog on the treadmill or chasing around toddlers, Maca may be just what you need to bust out your peak performance.  Maca will also help with shorter recovery after major physical activity to avoid extreme exhaustion after intense exertion.  No matter what your workout goals may be, getting an all-natural boost to improve your athletic performance is always a winning idea.

For those who find themselves very tired most of the time, including people who suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, Maca is often used as an alternative superfood to boost energy.  Rather than resorting to pharmaceuticals that may have negative side-effects, many people with fatigue disorders are taking a more natural approach to curb exhaustion.  Maca is one of the most potent choices because it is an adaptogen.  That means it raises the body’s level of function to superior heights.  When the body operates with more energy at a higher level, it is able to handle more activity and defend against any potential threats to health and wellbeing. 

Zokiva aims to bring you superfood nutrients so you can be your best.  We’re thrilled to now offer Maca Powder for all-natural energy and strength to improve your daily life.

Introducing Heart-Healthy, Energy-Boosting, Mood-Enhancing Maca Powder

Zokiva is thrilled to introduce the newest addition to our line of natural superfoods: Maca Powder.  This amazing Peruvian root provides many nutrients that are often hard to come by in our daily diet, making it a phenomenal supplement for overall health.  It also has specific benefits including heart health, better moods, sexual function and energy and stamina for intense physical activity.

Often referred to as the “Peruvian ginseng,” Maca is found high in the Andes Mountains and was originally discovered by the Inca Indians.  It looks similar to a radish but smells like butterscotch.  It has been cultivated and used for medicinal purposes for many years.

Maca is a terrific daily superfood supplement because it is high in protein, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iodine, zinc, fiber, amino acids and Vitamins B, C and E.  This combination of nutrients offers the body tremendous energy.  It is especially helpful in supporting performance, stamina and endurance for athletes or those who live very active lifestyles.

On top of heightened physical energy, Maca may also support improved mental energy and focus.  Translation: more productivity, being present and gaining a sense of accomplishment and boosted confidence.  Maca has therefore been hailed a natural mood enhancer.  Additionally, people who consume Maca regularly show higher levels of the natural mood-stimulant chemical serotonin.  And the best part is that Maca does not cause many of the damaging side-effects like many pharmaceuticals that treat anxiety and depression, such as weigh gain and lethargy. 

Another incredible benefit of Maca comes from its iron content.  Iron supports healthy blood, which helps maintain normal blood pressure and cardiovascular function.  Anecdotally, Maca has supplemented treatment for anemia, leukemia, HIV/AIDS and other blood-related diseases and disorders. The nutrients in Maca also aid in preserving strong teeth, bones and muscles, and help the body heal and recover faster from injury and illnesses. 

Last, but certainly not least, Maca is known to support sexual and reproductive health in men and women.  It may stimulate sexual desire and performance, as well as improve fertility.  For women, Maca is especially helpful in relieving some side-effects of the menstrual cycle and menopause including cramps, mood shifts due to hormonal changes, hot flashes and body aches. 

Maca powder has been used for centuries in its native South America to support general good health.  Zokiva is now able to bring this tropical root to your daily health regimen, and we think you’re going to love it!
