(NaturalNews) When Tosha Nichole, who suffers from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), had gone eight months without menstruating, she turned to maca powder to jump start her cycle. Her past experience and success with the powder led to this decision, and today, she recommends women suffering from PCOS to use maca powder.

"I've taken everything," she explains. From herbs to maca pills, nothing worked to regulate her system until she tried maca powder. Nichole, who blends about four to five teaspoons of maca root powder with water and a banana, says the powder has been "very beneficial to balancing hormones." She attributes the powder's powerful properties to the return of a more regular menstrual cycle.

Nichole also enjoys mixing it with coconut, almond or soy milk along with a banana and says that, in addition to regulating her hormones, consuming maca powder can clear skin and increase energy.

What is raw maca powder?

A root vegetable grown in the Peruvian mountains, maca is considered an adaptogenic, nutrient-packed food capable of honing in on and healing particular weaknesses in the body. Heralded for its energy-producing (including libido-boosting) and adrenal stress-reducing abilities, the raw powder contains over 50 different phytochemicals that contribute to restoring the hormonal balance necessary for those suffering from PCOS. A woman with PCOS is not able to properly absorb minerals needed for adequate menstrual function. Maca root has been shown to offset such imbalances.

According to the Office on Women's Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, upwards of 5 million women in the U.S. may have PCOS, which is the most common cause of female infertility. In addition to irregular menstrual cycles, women with PCOS may experience increased facial hair growth, acne, pelvic pain and depression.
