As a clinical nutritionist here at SheBANG!, I was really excited to develop our latest superlatte: the Peri Peppy Shroom Latte.  I included therapeutic dosages of organic reishi mushroom and maca to give you steady energy without the caffeine jitters and a shed load more benefits with your morning cuppa.

If you suffer from hot flushes, mood swings, inability to cope with normal life stressors, low energy and libido and sleepless nights, then Reishi and Maca are here to help us thrive through perimenopause.   

Let me lay it all down...

Why I LOVE Reishi Mushrooms in Perimenopause

Let’s dive into the magical world of Reishi mushrooms, and let me tell you, these little fungi are like a hug for your body and soul!

Reishi mushrooms contain bioactive compounds such as polysaccharides, triterpenes, and antioxidants that contribute to their health benefits.

These compounds have been shown to support hormone balance, enhance immune function, and provide stress-relieving effects. Additionally, reishi mushrooms possess anti-inflammatory properties, which can help alleviate symptoms associated with conditions like PMS and menopause.

The adaptogenic nature of reishi mushrooms can also help us manage stress more effectively, promoting a sense of well-being and overall vitality.

Here are some of the incredible benefits of Reishi through perimenopause:

1. Adaptogen Extraordinaire: If you feel like you're juggling a million things at once, and your stress levels are through the roof, enter Reishi, the ultimate adaptogen! This little powerhouse helps your body adapt to stress like a boss, leaving you feeling cool, calm, and collected even when life throws you curveballs.

2. Stress Support Superstar: stress can wreak havoc on our bodies, so another reason I included Reishi in this blend was for the way it supports healthy stress recovery and response in the body, helping you bounce back from those hectic days and weeks.

3. Sweet Dreams Are Made of Reishi: Who doesn't love a good night's sleep? Well, Reishi is like a lullaby in mushroom form! It supports healthy sleeping patterns and helps promote refreshing, rejuvenating sleep which can be the very first thing that goes in perimenopause.

4. Buh-Bye Weariness, Hello Energy: Ever feel like you're running on empty, running on fumes, running on...well, you get the idea. Reishi will help drop weariness and annihilate nervous energy.  It's like a little burst of vitality that leaves you feeling energised and ready to tackle whatever the day throws your way.

Why I LOVE Maca in Perimenopause

Maca! Yep, that humble root vegetable from the Andes Mountains of Peru that's been making waves in the world of wellness, especially during perimenopause and menopause. Here are the wonderful benefits of Maca during this transformative phase of our lives:

1. Libido Booster Extraordinaire: Ah, libido, the spark that keeps the fire burning in the bedroom. But let's be real, perimenopause and menopause can sometimes put a damper on things in that department. Enter Maca, the ultimate libido booster! This little root vegetable has been used for centuries to support healthy libido levels, helping you keep that spark alive and kicking.

2. Menopausal Symptom Warrior: Perimenopause and menopause can sometimes feel like a wild rollercoaster ride of hot flushes, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. Maca is an incredible ingredient that will help reduce the occurrence of menopausal symptoms, leaving you feeling like your fabulous self again. Say goodbye to those pesky hot flushes and hello to a smoother, more comfortable transition to the big M: Menopause.....and beyond.

So there you have it!  This is why I had to make the Peri Peppy Shroom Superlatte with these two powerhouse ingredients: to put a pep in your step through perimenopause.
