A harmonizing blend of Maca & Rose infused into raw balls of feminine bliss to balance hormones, relieve stress, increase energy, and sustain vitality.
Maca root has come to be regarded as a true harmonizer for women as it works to balance out hormonal & thyroid function, support fertility, maintain bone density, normalize changing moods, and increase energy as well as sexual vitality.
This hardy root from the Andes has been used for thousands of years by the Peruvian people for its nutritional and medicinal benefits. Primarily an adaptogenic root, maca helps the body to adapt to stress while allowing the body to naturally regulate itself by normalizing the hyper + hypo functioning of the organs. It is specific to women’s health due to its unique ability to balance hormonal + thyroid function. Its unique plant sterols act as precursors to support normal hormonal responses. It primarily does this by working with the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, which are the two major glands responsible for regulating healthy estrogen & cortisol levels. It is also a powerful antioxidant and beneficial for a variety of feminine conditions including menstrual cramping, PMS, PCOS, low libido, infertility, menopause, adrenal exhaustion, and even some cognitive disorders.
I have found that a great way to incorporate maca into your diet is by taking it daily in the form of capsules, I like to use Botanica Maca Root Liquid Phytocaps or by incorporating 1 Tablespoon of the powder into your food. I especially like to add it to my homemade raw desserts or smoothies. Below, I have included a recipe for my homemade Maca Feminine Balancing Bliss Balls that were formulated to balance the female body & mind.
Maca | Lepidium meyenii | An ancient herb & nutritional food source used by the Peruvian people of the Andes for thousands of years. Maca is an adaptogen + antioxidant herb with an affinity for the endocrine & reproductive systems. It is harmonizing to both the male & female body and works to balance hormones, thyroid function, menstruation, fertility, menopause, adrenal function, energy levels, and libido.
Rose | Rosa centifolia | A treasured herb long regarded as a symbol of beauty that is healing to the mind, body, & soul. The aroma of rose can awaken the heart and her essence can heal the soul. Rose is regarded as a nervine & blood + energy mover that also contains anti-hypertensive, anti-anxiety, hypnotic, anti-inflammatory, and astringent properties.
Cacao | Theobroma cacao | An ancient nutritional & medicinal bean used throughout Central + South America for centuries. Traditionally made into a blended drink with the addition of herbs & spices. Cacao is high in antioxidants & flavonoids and is considered to be a whole nervous system stimulant, making it effective at balancing blood sugar levels, insulin levels, and mood + energy levels.
Almond | Prunus dulcis | A highly regarded nut & nutritional food source. Almonds have a high fat & calorie content making them a very valuable food source. They are also packed full of nutrition + antioxidants and contain monounsaturated + polyunsaturated oils, protein, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, and vitamin E.
Date | Phoenix dactylifera | A prized fruit & nutritional food source. Dates are full of antioxidant flavonoids, phytonutrients, minerals, and vitamins. Including fiber, iron, calcium, magnesium, copper, and vitamin A.
Coconut | Cocos nucifera | A highly nutritious fruit regarded for its meat, juice, milk, and oil. All of which contain high levels of lauric acid. The meat of the coconut is also high in essential fats & oils, especially medium chain fatty acids that are easily assimilated into the body & metabolized into vital energy.
