Cool off this summer with this margarita recipe full of superfoods that help reduce menopause symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, sleep issues, dry skin and brain fog.
Here’s why this cocktail is so good for you:
Berries– the fiber in the strawberries and raspberries help detox ‘bad estrogen’ from the body which, when elevated, can contribute to poor sleep, night sweats and hot flashes.
Rhubarb- research backs that it reduces hot flashes.
Maca- is an endocrine balancing powdered root from peru that is very helpful for women experiencing menopause symptoms.
Schizandra Berry Powder– helps gently detox the liver and also promotes glowing skin and mental clarity. Many of Madeline’s clients have found that taking schizandra daily helps them reduce their menopause symptoms.
Pearl Powder- Pearl powder is used as a beauty herb in chinese medicine and is taken internally to promote youthful looking skin. It is cooling and anti inflammatory to the body and high in a well researched anti-aging antioxidant called Superoxide Dismutase (SOD).
Beet Powder-beets provides your body with ‘methyl’ groups that help your liver detox and remove bad estrogen. Which helps with hot flashes and menopause symptoms.
Tocotrienols- a powder extracted from rice bran that contains vitamin e which has been shown through research to help with menopause and hot flashes. Tocotrienols are delicious added to smoothies and elixirs.
Tequila- is optional of course but if you’re having flashes it’s a much better choice than drinking wine. Drinking wine can significantly increase hot flashes and night sweats!
***You can still make this recipe without the pearl, beet powder, maca powder, schizandra and tocotrenals.
