We at Wholistic Running love to bring runners every advantage to better running…especially when it’s delicious. Enjoy this amazing recipe for dark chocolate maca truffles!
Maca is a powerful adaptogen, which is the main reason we consume this superfood on a regular basis, especially during heavy training and racing periods. Adaptogens help to diminish the affects of stress by aiding in the regeneration of the adrenal glands and tired muscle tissue. This in turn helps to recover more quickly so we are able to do more high quality workouts. It also helps to improve the quality of sleep by lowering cortisol levels. Another reason I consume maca is for its natural energy boosting abilities by nourishing the body, not adding stimulation. You can actually feel it working.
