Maca root is an adaptogen that can improve your body's resilience to stress and support healthy energy levels.
Maca root comes from the maca plant, a cruciferous vegetable that’s native to Peru. It's often dried, turned into powder, and taken medicinally because it has a wide range of health benefits, including its ability to support healthy energy levels. That’s why we included it in Re-Lyte Boost.
How exactly does maca make you feel more energetic?
Well, maca is an adaptogen, which means it helps your body respond better to all types of stress. By improving your body’s resilience to stress, it can help reduce overall fatigue when taken consistently over time. Research shows that maca can increase energy in male rats and make men feel like they have more energy. A 2009 study also found that athletes who took maca for 14 days performed better in a 40 km cycling course.
Maca has a proven ability to make you feel better mentally too. Research shows that maca powder can make people feel less anxious and depressed, which could have a positive impact on energy levels as well.
