Here are just a few health benefits about my favorite superfood ingredients I’ve added into this recipe.
Beauty Superfood: Maca – the Legendary Libido Boosting Adaptogen
If you haven’t heard all the legendary hype behind maca it is time that you catch up. Maca is a powerful root, that has been praised for centuries for it’s adaptogenic-like qualities, making it the perfect ingredient for my Sexy Time Smoothie Recipe.
For a quick recap, adaptogens are natural plant products, that increase your body’s ability to deal with internal and external stresses and normalize imbalances.
It has been said, that the ancient Incans used maca root as an aphrodisiac. When consumed regularly, maca is believed to help balance hormones, minimize menopause, even boost libido and fertility.
This adaptogen also helps protect the brain from damage, improves cognitive ability in healthy people and improves bone health. Above all, it’s also believed to lift energy!
Use maca regularly as a great way to help your body adapt to stress- counteracting the negative effects of tension and anxiety. Want to learn more about this beauty superfood? You can read on about maca, here!
Beauty Superfood: Raw Cacao – the Ultimate Aphrodisiac Antioxidant
Raw cacao does the body and the mind good. The key here is we need to remember only to not overdo it, and to make sure we use raw cacao, not that other processed and/or milk-containing chocolate staring at you in front of every grocery store checkout line.
Raw cacao is a rich source of antioxidant flavonoids. It is also the highest whole food source of magnesium.
Cacao contains the neurotransmitter anandamide, known as the “bliss chemical”, which is why it’s associated with promoting feelings of love and joy.
Incorporating small amounts of cacao into your life can help improve your memory and take your vibrancy to a whole new level.
We also know cacao does wonders to boost energy! You will want to be mindful of the time you make this libido boosting smoothie, as you certainly won’t be wanting a nap anytime soon.
Beauty Secret Ingredient: Cayenne Pepper – the Super Stimulant
And for the secret ingredient, to really heat things up, welcome cayenne pepper. (Applause! Applause!) Or wait, are you on the other side of the fence? If so, you are probably thinking, Cayenne pepper in a smoothie, are you kidding me? Well Beauty, I am not, and let me tell you why.
Cayenne is a super ingredient because of all it’s stimulating properties! It helps circulate blood flow and it assists us to metabolize food. Need help removing toxins from your system? Cayenne will do it for you! It will even help remove unwanted bacteria out of your gut.
Including cayenne pepper into our smoothie recipe helps to stimulate our salivary glands, which really amps up our digestive system. It is a major detox supporter.
Your capillaries actually open up when they are confronted with cayenne, which helps eliminate acidity. This super stimulant has even been found to suppress hunger, while it regulates sugar and stabilizes glucose levels.
