The mid-afternoon slump. It can hit you when you least expect it. It often sets in when you still have a long way to go on your work and home “to do” lists for the day. In those moments, it’s so tempting to reach for that second (or third) cup of coffee to give you the energy you crave.

What if you could find a caffeine-free alternative to increase vitality and optimize your natural energy levels?*

Look no further than the high Andes mountains of Peru, where you’ll find Maca growing more than 12,000 feet above sea level. Fortunately, you don’t have toactually travel to South America to be able to enjoy the benefits of the highest altitude crop in the world!

Maca has been consumed for 3000 years, and is an adaptable plant that demonstrates an amazing ability to adjust to extreme climates.* Interestingly, when Maca root is ingested by humans, we actually refer to it as an “adaptogen”, meaning it helps with our adaptability to the demands of stress*. In the world of botanical medicine, we often see this direct parallel between a plant’s growing strategies in the nature, and its beneficial qualities in humans.

MegaFood has created two unique formulations where Maca plays a starring role.

In Daily Maca Plus for Women Over 40, Maca teams up with other botanicals, including Ashwagandha, a renowned Ayurvedic plant that helps promote a healthy stress response.* Ashwagandha is also an adaptogen, and is an excellent herb for supporting balanced energy levels when taken on a daily basis.* The addition of Chaste Tree Berry and Black Cohosh in this women’s blend help to maintain a healthy hormonal balance.*

Daily Maca Plus for Men Over 40 features different botanicals that complement Maca to promote strength and vitality for men.* Saw Palmetto and Nettle Root support healthy prostate and urinary tract function.* Reishi mushroom, also referred to as the “Mushroom of Immortality” in traditional Chinese Medicine, is best known for its role in promoting healthy aging.*

With these two MegaFood Nutrient Booster Powder blends, you can bring gender-specific energy and stress support directly into your daily routine.* Please note:  while these blends are designed for the Over 40 Crowd, younger adults can still enjoy them, too! Each one offers a caffeine-free daily boost, and just might help you wave good-bye to the afternoon slump.* Simply add a scoop to your favorite smoothie, or try one of the following delicious recipes!
