If there is just one superfood you need on your menu to balance those cray cray hormones, it's maca. Maca is from peru and it looks a bit like a potato, but it does a whole lot more good for your insides and best of all, it balances your hormones. Maca deliveries a big kick of energy to your system and is one food you should be including in your wellness regime. I've underlined all the benefits today because there are just so many for you to see! And I haven't included them all here otherwise the post would go on forever. But know this much – maca may change your life.
It gets the title of a superfood because it delivers on the nutrition front. It's totally full of vitamins and minerals as well as enzymes and amino acids which is why it makes a swell effort in getting your hormones happy. It's full of B vitamins (those are the energy vitamins) – vitamin B-12 being particularly good for the vegetarians amongst us. It is also a great source of bioavailable calcium and magnesium – magnesium being one of my favourite all round period fixers as well as iron, potassium and vitamin C.
