Two super-foods that are great for your hormones!

Super-foods are plant-based foods that provide extreme health benefits to those that consume them. Adding a small dose of the super-foods listed below to your daily routine will help to keep you happy, healthy and feeling young!
 
The root of the maca plant is packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins, and phytochemicals.  Maca root is considered to be an adaptogen because it assists the body in adapting to stressful or changing conditions.  Maca has been found to speed up the body’s healing process, balance out hormones secreted by our endocrine system and provides the body with energizing compounds.  Throughout history, raw maca has been used in traditional medicine for fighting fatigue, increase stamina and boost libido.      
 
Another superfood that is good for balancing out hormones is cocoa.  Unsweetened, all-natural cocoa is extremely rich in nutrients and anti-oxidants and has been linked to a reduction in stress hormones in the body.  It has also been to play a role in reducing the risk of heart disease – likely because the body is less stressed.  Treat yourself to a little bit of high-quality, raw cocoa in order boost your mood, reduce anxiety and keep your heart healthy!
