Here is a killer performance smoothie recipe for both men and women that will give you stamina and energy, while improving your physical and emotional well-being at the same time. It contains two of the most powerful superfoods in the world: Maca and Goji Berries.

Though users of maca enjoy a variety of benefits, both men and women have found specifically that it significantly boosts libido and sex drive; balances hormones; and increases energy, stamina, athletic performance, and the feeling of general well-being.

Goji berries are the single most important food for healing disease and maintaining vitality. They are filled with powerful antioxidants and other compounds that help prevent cancer and other illnesses. Antioxidants also boost the immune system and lower cholesterol. Goji berries also have compounds rich in vitamin A, which has anti-aging benefits. These special compounds help boost immune function, protect vision, and may also help prevent heart disease. Some research even suggests that Goji Berry extracts may boost brain health and protect against age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Now that you know the basics, grab your blender and mix this delicious, healthy smoothie right away:
