I would like to also recommend Maca Root for hormonal imbalance. I was amazed how quickly my energy came up and mood leveled out. I actually noticed positive results within days. Be sure to use the gelatinized version for easier absorption.
I would like to add that Maca Root is very beneficial for Menopause sysmptoms. I started it just this week, and I have already noticed a difference in my hot flashes. I have also tried other alternative treatments ie: herbs and Vitex etc with not much change to my symptoms. The Maca Root seems to really work and has alot of added benefit because of being a super food. Its packed with so many vitamins and minerals on top of it all. It is definitely recommended for HRT. I bought organic Maca root in bulk at Bulk Barn and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg.
Greetings - my first post but I have been an avid fan of this site for a while :-) For hormone balancing, Maca (root) is a phenomenal way to go - I use the powder form in water (tastes meh - slightly nutty) but it's available also in liquid drops. I am perimenopausal and I was shocked that it stopped night sweats in its tracks! I had been dealing with that for a couple years, so it was amazing to not have to kick the covers off halfway through the night any more. YAY! It is better than progesterone to balance estrogen since it is a food and gentler in its approach. I am a fan!
