Who would have thought a nice treat like this could be helpful for balancing those hormones!

Maca is a powerful adaptogen, which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body’s glandular-hormonal system, nervous system, cardiovascular system and musculature. It supports the endocrine system (win for hormones), the adrenals (win for stress management), and the thyroid (win for your metabolism), and is known to improve your overall mood.

Due to its ability to balance hormones, maca is particularly beneficial to counteract menopausal and premenopausal symptoms. New to using Maca? Find more information on this Peruvian vegetable here.

Both maca and raw cacao are excellent sources of magnesium, which supports hundreds of reactions in the body. It is also well known to contribute to better sleep (essential for hormone balance) and also balancing your nervous system.

Enjoying a treat of chocolate doesn’t have to make you feel guilty. Like anything, consuming poor quality chocolate, such as chocolate loaded with added sugar and chemicals, is not beneficial for your body.
