Supplements, or Why you NEED them if you have Kids
Ok, so first things first;
Kids drive you FREAKIN crazy don’t they
Oh the joy….
Ok, well I will admit, they’re magic… even though their DNA is really programmed to drive you NUTS.
But how can you help but love… I.E:
Above, the youngest nut job (5) smoothing concrete. He’s a VERY dilligent worker and VERY good at the jobs he tackles. Scary good…
Nutjob sisterly love. The 2 oldest. Dangerous combo, 1 super book smart, one super life smart, I hope for all your sake they don’t ever team up in the business world.
Traveling sightseeing nutjob kids
Cutest Nutjob kid in the world likes the Vatican guards
Jet setting nut job kids, with nutjob cousins
Nut job motorcycle kid
So it’s really no wonder that Mom & Dad, need supplements…
As long promised, especially to reader Matt, I will post about the supplements my wife and I believe, do actually work, regardless of the hype or negativity around said supplement. Supplements that we think, aleviate some of the stress pf daily life and of course raising NUT JOB KIDS.
Instead of putting them all in post, I figured lets do one per post, I will be inclined to perhaps go in depth a little further, and perhaps we can also have some back and forth discussion and sharing of experiences. I will also show you only the EXACT product I buy and where to buy it. Disclosure, I do NOT receive any commission for you clicking the links or buying product from the vendors I share. Totally unbiased feedback, after having sampled many many brands over the years. I am not an MD, please be responsible and do your home work, if you are on medications. Natural supplements are powerful, and some DO interfere the effectiveness and goals of daily necessary medications.
So without further ado, here’s the first one.
From the website of this retailer a decent general description of Maca powder: “Maca root has been used in indigenous Andean societies as a source of nourishment and healing for thousands of years, and continues to be one of the most appreciated superfoods today. Used to increase stamina, boost libido, and combat fatigue, maca root has long been regarded as a highly adaptogenic and powerful food. Navitas Naturals Gelatinized Maca Powder is a concentrated form of this special root’s beneficial elements; the fiber of the root is extracted making this superfood more digestible and its beneficial elements intensified. With an earthy taste that is slightly nutty with a hint of butterscotch, a little maca goes a long way.”
Ok, so there are two types available in powder form, gelatinized and raw. The gelatinized version is easier to absorb I think, because the maca has been heated (cooking off some starch). This makes sense for me as the Peruvians did NOT eat Maca raw. Just a thought, but totally your choice.
My ( and my beautiful wife’s experience with Maca…yes, a picture why not)
Ok one more, sorry…I’m crazy about her…….
Maca powder is an adaptogen and hormone regulator. Trust me, it’s powerful stuff steeped n history for 1000′s of years as an integral part of traditional and early advanced cultures in the region where it’s from.
Build up slowly when you start taking maca. A little goes a long way. of course all the research and anecdotes and all the books and websites that try and sell you some, love to market this “magic” supplement. There’s nothing magic about it, it’s very much like Ginseng from a different part of the world, but in my experience better. FAR BETTER.
For both of us, there is a distinct sense off well being, when we take it. Recovery after exercise is markedly better and provides a very noticeable “energy lift” for the day. As with ALL SUPPLEMENTS, make sure you take breaks from it, this seems to only increase it’s effectiveness paradoxically.
Do you have any experience with Maca? Like? Dislike?
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, love your family and be HAPPY.
