At Planet Beach you will find services that strive to ultimately make you feel better and look better, but they do this by reducing inflammation in the body. Utilizing red light therapy, the meditation booth, the hydration station, the HOTWORX infrared sauna and more, these powerful treatments are ancient technologies that are available to you.

In addition to utilizing services at Planet Beach and Hotworx that are based on ancient treatments and traditions, you can enhance your results with superior nutrition.

Next on the list is another medicinal root.

It’s been used for centuries in South America for warriors to increase their longevity and stamina going into battle. It can be added to soups, salads, smoothies, or anything you can think of!

This superfood is called Maca.

Maca root grows in the mountains of Peru at high altitudes of 7,000 to 11,000 feet, making it the highest altitude growing plant in the world. Maca is a radish-like root vegetable that is related to the potato family.

As a nutritional supplement, Peruvian Maca has generalized tonic effects on the biochemical functioning of the human body. Chief among these effects is the enhancement of endocrine function. The endocrine system includes all of the glands, and the hormones they secrete, that exist in the body and that control such conditions as fertility, sexual function, digestion, brain and nervous system physiology, and energy levels. Hormonal regulation is responsible for all of the physiological attributes that enable us to enjoy the myriad sensations of being vibrantly alive, including those related to sexual arousal, physical activity and mental-emotional states of being. Maca root has also been called an adaptogen, (look for upcoming blogs all about adaptogens) which means that it increases the body’s ability to defend itself against both physical and mental weakening, hence potential illness. It is believed it achieves this by supporting adrenal and pituitary gland health, both of which underlie proper endocrine function.
