Just when you thought your body had survived its last transformation, it re-contorts itself again and your hormonal balance gets out of whack. As women, we kick and scream our way through pre-pubescence, menstruation, pregnancy, perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause. Some of us endure these metamorphoses better than others. Pharmaceutical companies have a field day hawking everything from water pills to feminine libido-enhancing drugs.
Cha Cha Cha Cha Changes!
Most women over 50 are either somewhere between peri-menopause and post-menopause. That means they’re looking for hormonal balance and relief from hot flashes, weight gain, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, mood swings, fatigue, and even depression. For those who experience severe symptoms, there’s a plethora of drugs and herbs available in stores, online, or by prescription that promises results. Unfortunately, many come with scary-sounding side effects.
What I like about Femmenessence supplements is that they aren’t a substitute for estrogen-like drugs, soy, black cohosh, or wild yams. They simply support hormonal balance as well as heart, bone, and mental health. They’re formulated with organic maca root, which will help you balance your body’s hormonal levels naturally.
Achieving hormonal balance using Maca Root
Maca root has been a staple of the Peruvian diet for thousands of years. It grows in the Andes mountains and has become increasingly popular in health food stores for numerous reasons. It’s even used as a substitute for chocolate.
The problem with using maca root, as a means for supporting hormonal balance, is that you have to make sure you’re consuming the right variety. There are actually 13 different varieties of maca root and each has its own special benefits. Some types are more helpful for men than for women and vice versa. Purchasing a bag of maca powder at the health food store and mixing it in with a smoothie will probably not help ease a hot flash or make you feel sexier. In fact, most of the maca products you find at health food stores are formulated to increase energy and improve male fertility and are not as beneficial to women.
A product that makes it easy to balance your hormones, naturally
What Femmenessence has done is to make sure the right variety and ratio of maca root are blended into a formula for every stage of life a woman goes through to receive optimal results.
MacaPause is designed for women 50 years old or older, which is the majority of our readers. According to the package, it will help you in the following ways:
- Naturally, supports normal hormonal balance.
- Supports heart and bone health.
- Supports an improved outlook on life.
- Supports healthy energy levels.
- Supports sexual health – libido and vaginal dryness.
- Supports the body to help reduce hot flashes.
There’s a disclaimer on the bottom of the box that states:
These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
It’s suggested that you take 2 capsules in the morning and afternoon (when you have an energy low) but it may be best to start with just 1 capsule at first to make sure you don’t have an adverse reaction. Taking a dose that’s less than recommended is a good policy for any type of supplement product. Don’t ingest the product if you’re pregnant, nursing, or if you’re taking any other type of hormonal medication. Always consult your healthcare professional before starting a new supplement or over the counter medication.
You have choices depending on what’s happening to your body
If you’re younger than 50, don’t worry, you can still choose from MacaLife, for women experiencing peri-menopausal symptoms and who are still menstruating, or MacaHarmony for women in their teens through their reproductive years.
