Benefits of Maca!

Maca, a root that belongs to the radish family, is seen to have many great benefits and people are not aware. Maca can also come in powder form. Like everything else, consuming too much can begin to lack benefits and turn against you. Maca’s benefits can be consumed in smoothies, salads, drinks, cooked foods, and juices.

Let’s get into the benefits now, that some research suggests it may offer:

Vitamins: rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E; providing calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.

Sexual function: serves as a boost to your libido and increases endurance. At the same time it balances your hormones and increases fertility. Although limited evidence stands that it improves sexual function.

Women’s health and mood: relieves menstrual issues and menopause, alleviating cramps, body pain, hot flashes, anxiety, mood swings, and depression.

Energy: Athletes may take maca for peak performance, increasing energy levels and stamina. This does however still lack some scientific evidence.

Cancer: it is said to aid in the treatment of cancer, though science has not proven that it prevents or treat cancer.

Skin:  Maca can be used to decrease skin sensitivity, or withstand extreme temperatures.

Note: Maca should not be used by people with high blood pressure or by those with hormone-dependent cancers such as breast or prostate cancer. As with other supplements, maca hasn’t been tested for safety in pregnant women, nursing mothers, children, and those with medical conditions or who are taking medications.

More scientific studies are needed to fully prove these benefits, however if you find you need assistance in some of these factors, try maca, as your doctor what they think. It could just be your answer.

The Happiness of Being Grateful!

Do you want to be Happy?

Of Course you do. Everyone does.

What if I told you I know the answer for being happy, but you need to follow it religiously in order to really be happy. That’s not to say you will never have moments of sadness, it’s life.

I loved reading this article because it truly showed me the meaning of Gratitude. It showed me the meaning of happiness. Being happy, to me, is not only my happiness but the happiness of others too. That is, bringing happiness to people around me.

The trick to being happy is to be grateful for what you have because you are blessed. If you are reading my blog at the moment, you are more blessed than many people because you have the ability to have access to the Internet and a computer and definitely shelter. So, take a moment to be thankful for that. Love what you have and give love to those that need it. Love can be simply shared through gratitude, that is, gratitude of others. Are you grateful to have family, friends, colleagues, health, abilities, skills, …? It takes a few seconds to thank someone and these seconds from your life can really make a difference in theirs. Not only that, but scientific studies have shown that gratefulness leads to happiness, so it’s a win-win situation.

So, the pursuit of happiness should drive you to action, because it can and will make a whole difference.

Matt Richardson, co-founder of Gramr Gratitude Co. states that 

Scientists believe that 40% of our happiness is influenced by intentional activities. 40% is a lot. You are in control. Be good to yourself by being grateful. Be good to others by thanking them for who they are, and what they do for you.

He recommends a simple intentional activity that can take as little as 5 minutes of your time in the week if you want to be happy.

Each week write one thank you note to someone who makes your life better. That’s one handwritten thank-you note per week. Not a text, not a Facebook post, but a heartfelt, handwritten thank-you note, which indicates to someone that you spent time on them because they matter. It could be your best friend, your yoga instructor, your hair stylist—it could be anyone. Your relationships will become more meaningful, you will become happier, and so will everyone you touch. All it takes is a few minutes of mindful gratitude each week—remember, you are in control of 40% of your overall happiness, and remember that we are all in this together. So let’s start a habit, and let’s start a movement.

So take a moment, think of those you are grateful for in your life, and write to them, tell them. Take time for them. A simply Thank You may mean very little to you, but to those that love you and you love, or those that care about you and you care about, it makes a difference, and you will notice, this difference will make you a lot happier. You will find a happiness you forgot about or one you’ve never known about.

Thank you all for being proud followers of my blog! Your constant trust in my writing makes me happy. I hope my posts continue to make you happy and bring a smile to your day.

Genders & The Power of Sex

We know how much men tend to Sex appeal. When men are exposed to women bare in any way, shape or form, they get aroused. It doesn’t take too much for a man to feel aroused when there is any skin showing on a woman.

Women, on the other hand, are not as easily touched. This being said, a man can walk naked in a room and it won’t drive her nuts, whereas a women knows what she is doing when she walks naked into a room. He wants her.

It’s just the way the gendered brain works. Sex is on a man’s mind almost 24/7 if not to say a full 24/7. It not their fault, it’s just the power of hormones and our nature. Men are sexual beings, more so then women. Studies have shown it too. The thing is, studies have also shown that women get aroused on effects beyond their acknowledgement, they get physiologically aroused without knowing they do. But that is a study on its own for another day.

This is to show that women are not as sexually compelled by the power of visualization as men are. This explains as well the power of the man’s second brain. Enough said.

Watch this, you will be impressed with the findings.
