Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a hormonal disorder affecting 5-10% of childbearing women and is the most significant cause of infertility amongst women of all nationalities. Symptoms vary greatly between women, but can include weight gain, acne, excessive hair growth, multiple ovarian cysts, and male pattern hair-loss. More serious manifestations include: hyperinsulinemia, elevated triglycerides, and difficulty breathing.
Conventional treatments for PCOS are targeted to symptom management from oral retinoid for skin concerns, oral contraceptives, or insulin regulating drugs. However, the most effective treatment is always to address the root cause – this includes diet and lifestyle adjustments as well as supplementation with a few key nutrients that can improve outcomes. The first is inositol. This member of the B vitamin family comes in two forms: myo-inositol and d-chiro- inositol. A combination of these two forms was shown to significantly improve insulin sensitivity by cells, thus preventing blood glucose dysregulation. This also had an impact on the regulation of a number of sex hormone levels. Further, oocyte and egg quality improved leading to improved fertility in women suffering from PCOS. Folic acid has also been seen to be beneficial by providing antioxidant support from excess homocysteine. It also supports healthy brain, cardiovascular and genetic functioning. Advanced PCOS Relief contains the active form of folic acid to ensure that the body can use it properly.
