Need I say more? I love chocolate. And as I am cleansing my body I am starting to want less and less sugar and am easily satisfied by a small piece even when given an opportunity to indulge in a whole bar.
On my recent grocery-shopping trip I found an amazing chocolate. It is 70% of cocoa and has 4000mg Maca – Organic MacaSure Chocolate. Now, I had no idea what Maca was when I bought a bar of this amazing chocolate. I just thought it was good organic dark chocolate. After I tried and its soft honey-sweet deliciousness melted in my mouth I was amazed by how different and wonderful it tasted. I went on Google to see what was so special about this chocolate and here is what I found.
Maca is a root, grown in Peru. It is grown at very high altitudes and in fact, is the highest altitude growing plant in the world. Cool, huh? But what does it for us? Its chemical composition consists of significant amounts of amino acids, carbohydrates, and minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, zinc, magnesium, iron and vitamins such as B1, B2, B12, C and E, as well as numerous glycosides. This amazing combination of nutrients makes Maca an amazing hormonal tonic and assists with many major body functions, such as, fertility, sexual function, digestion, brain and nervous system physiology and energy levels.
I haven’t tried any other brands or products containing Maca, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE these chocolates. And love the fact that the chocolate bar contains a suggested intake of half to a full bar a DAY! I love this chocolate prescription J
At this point I have been eating a small piece of it with a cappuccino before going to the gym or doing home workout, it give me a lot of energy to enjoy my workout. What a better way to inspire yourself for a good and hard workout?
I found the Organic MacaSure Chocolate at my local Sprouts. If you cannot find it in your local store ask the manager to order it for you. Most natural grocers do these services, especially if you are trying to buy in bulk, or order it yourself online.
Enjoy your chocolate prescription!
