Polycystic Ovarian Disease

Polycystic Ovarian Disease is a hormonal or endocrine problem that causes women to have a variety of symptoms such as missed or irregular menses, small ovarian cysts (fluid-filled sacs), high levels of androgens, a male hormone that typically is in low amounts in females. The cause of PCOS is unknown although genetics may play a role. A main underlying problem with PCOS is a hormonal imbalance and menstrual irregularities. It can lead to infertility.

Supplement Considerations

Prostate Support Nutrients

A prostate support nutrient should contain natural agents known to block the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. The build of dihydrotestosterone has been implicated in POD.

Fat Metabolizing Supplements

a fat metabolizing supplement should contain three natural agents shown to help regulate blood sugar levels and insulin. High insulin and blood sugar have been implicated in POD.

Essential Fatty Acids

An essential fatty acid should contain the perfect blend of essential fatty acids shown to produce the prostaglandin hormones (series -1 and series – 3), which slow down the cell division rate and reduce inflammation. These are important considerations in the management of POD.

High Potency Multiple Vitamin and Mineral

A high potency multiple vitamin and mineral should contain boosted level of key antioxidants and B-vitamins required to facilitate the conversion of essential fatty acids into Prostaglandin series-1 and series-3.

Adrenal Support Nutrients

An adrenal support nutrient should contain natural adaptogens, which suppress the over secretion of cortisol from the adrenal glands when a person is under stress. Individuals who are under stress often show high cortisol levels or an abnormal cortisol secretion pattern, which can impair the normal function of many glands and organs, including the ovaries. Adrenal Support Formula helps to suppress the over secretion of cortisol, and thus, enables many glands in the body to express more normalized function.
