Maca root, also know as “Peruvian Ginseng”, is a nutrient-dense vegetable gown at high elevation in South America and is a rich source of important vitamins and minerals. Several studies have shown that maca can enhance mood and has been associated with reduced anxiety and symptoms of depression, and increased libido in both men and women.

Hemp’s popularity has exploded over the past 7-10 years and research is catching up with its popularity. Cannabigerol (CBG) Is the “mother” of all compounds found in hemp as it is the first present when the plant begins to flower. Where CBD is more widely used to treat stress and anxiety, CBG has shown great potential as a neuroprotectant. CBG helps to support healthy inflammatory function and has even been shown to possibly support neurogenesis, the growth of new brain cells -possibly leading to greater capacity for focus and attention.
