Oana, our Watford store manager likes Viridian Myo-inositol with folic acid and Nature’s Answer Vitex, both very beneficial for female hormonal health.
Oana says: “It is estimated that 10% of reproductive age woman have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), making it one of the most common hormonal issues. I’ve been managing my PCOS with a low glycaemic diet and exercise, but what I found works very well for restoring hormonal balance, ovulation and fertility is a combination of Myo-Inositol and folic acid. I recommend 2 grams of Viridian’s Myo-inositol and folic acid twice daily in water for minimum 3 months. I also recommend Natures Answer Vitex Agnus Castus – 2 ml first thing in the morning. This is one of the most important herbs for PCOS because it helps to stimulate and normalise the function of the pituitary gland, which controls the release of luteinising hormone.”
Aside from being used for PCOS, Myo-Inositol and folic acid combinations have been beneficial for women who suffer from insulin resistance, hirsuitism, elevated testosterone and also as a supplement for preconception.
