How to Balance Your Hormones with Superfoods

How to Balance Your Hormones with Superfoods

Dec 27th 2019

There is an overwhelming amount of information available about hormone balance. This topic is broad, ranging from gender-specific concerns to age, sleep, energy, focus, mood, stamina, and physical attributes such as hair and skin. Seeking the guidance of an expert is highly advised, but one of the safest and easiest places to seek hormonal support is from the foods we eat. Eating a clean diet filled with organic foods and managing stress levels is a good place to start when you’re aiming to stabilize the hormonal scales. When that’s not enough, superfoods can help us achieve balance.


The most common concerns with hormone imbalances are often gender and age. Maca Powder offers a wide range of benefits for both. This precious Peruvian root grown in the Andes Mountains is considered an adaptogen. It has the unique ability to assist your body to do what it needs to (adapt) in order to heal naturally. Adaptogens are botanically derived and in order to qualify as such, they must be completely safe and non-toxic, have broad uses for health, and support the body and mind in overall stress reduction. Maca comes in a variety of colors, all with varying adaptogenic benefits.

Did you know that Red Maca addresses many concerns for women, while Black Maca supports hormonal needs for men?  If you have a sensitive stomach, try Gelatinized Maca. It's formulated to be gentle on the digestive tract. Maca powder is a versatile superfood that can be easily added to your favorite smoothie or Acai fruit bowl.

Camu Camu

Stress hormones are another area that often requires balancing. Camu Camu is high in vitamin C and can offer integral support. Our adrenals are responsible for producing a stress hormone called cortisol. For many people, the adrenals are over-worked, which can throw cortisol levels out of whack. These vital organs hold an extremely high concentration of vitamin C and therefore need an avid supply in order to thrive. Camu Camu is a superfruit berry grown in the rainforests of South America and is cherished by the indigenous Amazonian people for its nourishing benefits. Camu Camu in powder form carries incredible bioavailability to be used efficiently within the body. Your adrenals will love that! Add Camu Camu to water, your favorite juice or Superfood Smoothie Mix.


Flaxseed is a plant source of Omega-3s and is high on our list of beauty superfoods. It’s a high-fiber superfood that helps keep your hormones in balance by assisting your body in excreting excess estrogen. If you’re looking for faster results, incorporating flaxseed in your diet will lead to healthier looking skin and stronger hair and nails.
