Yoga is an ancient practice that is meant to naturally discipline and condition the mind, body, and spirit. It is thought to have originated by ancient Shamans, or healers, of the East. Yoga’s history is long and complex, but the fact that it has been practiced for thousands of years is a testament to its tremendous benefits for human beings.
Through yoga practice, one reflects on the strengths and weaknesses present in each individual body. On top of its spiritual benefits, the physical benefits of yoga practice are undeniable. Since yoga does not require any tools or machinery to perform, the body is strengthened in a way that is absolutely natural. Yoga positions evolve out of the natural sitting and standing positions of our bodies. As we practice yoga, our bodies become more flexible, able to twist and turn with more ease and grace than ever before. This is because in addition to building flexibility, yoga builds strength in every muscle group: arms, legs, back, shoulders, chest, and abdominals. In practicing yoga, our muscles become strengthened by holding poses for a period of time.
The result is toned, lean muscle definition: your muscles grow from supporting your own body weight. Compared to lifting dumbbells, this practice recruits far more muscle power. Instead of isolating a single muscle, entire groups of muscles (big and small) are engaged in supporting the body’s weight. Recruiting these smaller muscles is the difference between having a bulky bicep look and an arm that is toned all over. For those who ever wondered if it is really possible to build strength through yoga, the answer is unquestionably yes! Through yoga, one uses their own body weight to make their body stronger. In this manner the mind focuses itself on the body and allows the two to come together for all-around strength training – mental and physical.
A long-known South American staple, Yacon is a crisp, sweet-flavored, low-calorie plant root (tuber) that has many inherent health benefits. Its sweetness and low-calorie nature stem from its chemical composition: the plant produces inulin, which acts as a means of storing energy for the plant, as well as fructooligosaccharides, a natural, sweetening byproduct found within the root.
Inulin accounts for several of the root’s health benefits: it increases calcium and magnesium absorption, promotes the growth of healthy intestinal bacteria, and has significant prebiotic characteristics. Similarly, the fructooligosaccharides share a lot of those same prebiotic characteristics, promoting a healthy and effective digestive system.
These natural sweeteners make Yacon a perfect dietary supplement for people with diabetes as well.
Yacon can be found in our Epic Protein : Chocolata Maca, Vanilla Lucuma and Sproutein. Read more about our vegan protein powders.
The DL: Anything that has the word "epic" in the title is going to be pretty rad (well, we hope at least), and we know things with chocolate in them are rad, so this protein powder seems like it could be a winner! Plus it's raw, organic, and provides 19 grams of protein per ounce. It might even be a bit of an overachiever, if you ask us.
