[Recipe] Hormone Balancing Smoothie

This smoothie has only a few ingredients that will be easy to blend.

 

Maca powder comes from a tuber and is thought to help improve energy levels, increase libido, and support adrenal function by decreasing the stress response and reducing the amount of cortisol and adrenaline produced by the body.*

 

Maca is also thought to help balance estrogen levels, which can help manage symptoms of menopause like night sweats and hot flashes.

 

It can also help improve reproductive health and fertility and decrease symptoms related to conditions like (PCOS).*

 

You can find maca at our local grocery stores.
