What is PCOS?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a complex condition that affects 1 in 10 women worldwide.
Women with PCOS have a hormonal imbalance which can affect their health in many ways.
For instance this condition can increase the risk for infertility, metabolic syndrome, sleep apnea, endometrial cancer, and depression. Many women have the condition, even though they don’t know it.
Symptoms of PCOS can include :
Irregular periods : a lack of ovulation means fewer periods i.e. less than 8 a year. Or periods may come every 21 days or more often. While some women stop having periods altogether.
Heavy bleeding: owing to the uterine lining building up for a longer period of time, periods can be heavier than normal.
Too much hair on face, chin or parts of the body where men usually have hair.
Acne on face, chest, and upper back.
Weight gain or difficulty losing weight. In fact up to 80 % of women with PCOS are overweight or obese.
Male-pattern baldness due to the excess of male hormones.
What is in PCOSITOL supplement?
Myo-Inositol : Can help to improve insulin sensitivity and ovulatory function. Approximately 30-40% of PCOS women have impaired glucose tolerance.
Coenzyme Q10 : an antioxidant for the maintenance of good health.
Magnesium : assists with hormone regulation, insulin resistance, as well as inflammation associated with PCOS.
Folic Acid : helps to both prevent anaemia as well as promote ovulation. Importantly, it also lowers the risk of neural tube defects in developing babies.
Vitamin B12 : Optimizing B vitamin levels can improve fertility in both men and women. Vital for normal red blood cell formation.
Chromium : Beneficial in cases of insulin resistance – a common feature of infertility due to PCOS. Provides support for healthy glucose metabolism.
Zinc : Helps in connective tissue formation, maintaining healthy skin, ovulation and immune function. Also helps to metabolise carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Calcium: Together with Vitamin D, a healthy diet and regular exercise it helps to reduce your risk of osteoporosis.
