The Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal (HPA) axis is our central stress response system. It is a complicated set of relationships and signals that exist between the hypothalamus (a part of the brain), the pituitary gland (also part of the brain) and the adrenals (at the top of the kidney).
Maca helps balance hormones & reverse hypothyroidism. It is an endocrine adaptogen consisting of nutrients that support hormone production. It's high in iron, calcium, potassium, protein, magnesium, phosphorus, & zinc. It stimulates & nourishes the hypothalamus & pituitary (master glands) which regulate other glands in the body (adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian & testicular glands). Maca is also beneficial for PMS, menopause, fertility issues & improving libido & sexual function. #dherbs
