Prolonged estrogen in the body, HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) treatments for women suffering from menopause and postmenopausal symptoms have been linked to chronic illnesses like breast, uterine and ovarian cancers.
Maca is a natural alternative to assist in relieving the symptoms of menopause. Maca contains no estrogen, phytoestrogen or hormones. Maca assists in regulating your own hormones by improving the function of the endocrine system (i.e the system of glands which produces hormones in the body). It is the only super food known to nourish the endocrines system, and by doing this, allows the body to restore balance, alleviating, exhaustion, hot flushes and other problematic symptoms.
Maca is recommended for the treatment of a host of hormone related disorders including low libido, menopausal and pre-menstrual symptoms. Research has shown that hormone balancing Maca not only supports the endocrine glands but also the adrenal gland functuon, which is very important in times of stress.
Maca actually provides the body with many nutrients including potassium and calcium (it actually has higher levels of calcium than milk). It contains protein, carbohydrates, and fatty acids. However, it is the presence of two recently discovered compounds, macamides and macaenes, that are are thought to give maca its aphrodisiac effects. In the April, 2000 issue of the medical journal Urology, researchers reported that rodents fed a concentration of macamides and macaenes developed an increase in energy, sex drive and stamina and in 2008 the side effects were confirmed in human trials. Toxicity levels: Maca has very low toxicity levels and as a result has no known side effects and is generally safe to use in conjunction with other treatments and medications.
Take 2 to 3 teaspoonfuls of Maca per day mixed with your food or beverages. It can also be sprinkled over your breakfast cereals or porridge. It can be added to your smoothies.
