Every woman who experiences hormonal imbalances knows the discomfort it can cause, and also knows that using over-the-counter medications for relief doesn't always work. These issues leave 85% of women looking for relief from menstrual symptoms such as cramps, bloating, and mood swings.
Our go-to solution? Maca Root Powder.
Maca is an adaptogen, or a natural substance that normalizes and regulates the systems of the body, including your endocrine system, which controls your hormones. When you experience PMS, your estrogen levels are falling, soaring, and falling again. Of course your body feels out of control!
By regulating your endocrine system, maca suppresses your rapidly changing hormone levels, thus minimizing the symptoms of PMS.
However, maca isn’t just used for these annoying monthly symptoms. Maca’s hormone-regulating powers have also been proven to provide relief for symptoms of menopause. Your endocrine system affects your body in more ways than you may realize - this superfood is known to improve energy, libido, and fertility via hormone regulation.
But the benefits don't stop there! Maca contains high levels of healthy carbohydrates, protein, iron, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, B vitamins, and linoleic and oleic fatty acids. It's a great stress reliever and can also provide sustained energy as a coffee alternative.
Our favorite way to incorporate maca into our diets is via maca root powder, which blends nicely into a smoothie or can be mixed into your homemade energy bars. You can also add a teaspoon to your coffee or tea. Go ahead and load up on this delicious, nutty-flavored superfood. Your hormones will thank you!
