When it comes to heating things up in the bedroom with your partner, your immediate thought probably isn’t root vegetables and beans. (I mean, who are we to judge if it is!) But the powerful benefits of maca and cacao are proving themselves to be just the boost you and your lover may be looking for!

Maca is a magical Aztec root that has been used medicinally for centuries in South America because it is a known adaptogen. Adaptogens simply increase immunity by improving the overall ability of the body to handle stress. Maca is dried and ground into a powder that increases energy, stamina, and enhances libido in both men and women.  It’s also been found to balance hormones, increase fertility, and provide relief from menopause symptoms so it’s amazing for the many changes our bodies go through over time. Let’s be honest though, it isn’t labeled as an aphrodisiac for nothin’!


Cacao in its raw form is a known stimulant. It gets your blood pumping and releases serotonin to make it a powerful mood enhancer. And just like its friend, maca, with regular consumption it acts as an aphrodisiac. Oh, baby.


Both of these powders are easily accessible at any Whole Foods and incorporating them into your daily routine is simple and oh-so-yummy! If you’re a coffee drinker, try adding a tablespoon of each high-vibe powder into your morning java, blend, and enjoy! Not into coffee? Heat up some almond or coconut milk on the stovetop, add a little raw honey, cinnamon, maca, and cacao for a warm, nourishing beverage. Just be mindful that the combination of honey, cinnamon, maca, and cacao will give you a spike in energy so you may or may not want to consume before bed… Then again, maybe you do. We'll let you make that call, boo!
