Effective Home Remedies for PCOS

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is characterised physiologically by impaired metabolism and the production of hormones such as androgen and oestrogen. It affects reproductive-age women and premenopausal women.

Managing insulin resistance in PCOS can be challenging. The body may not respond to insulin normally, so higher insulin levels. This higher insulin production can result in an excess of male hormones.

Treatment options for PCOS 

Nowadays, the treatment for PCOS is about lifestyle modifications and medical intervention. Lifestyle modifications are about diet, exercise, and weight loss.

Pharmacological or medical interventions certainly have a cure, but the associated side effects and the cost of medicine can be large deterrents. With the given condition, a better alternative is often required; hence, the use of medicinal plants to treat PCOS.

Home remedies for PCOS

1. Inositol  

Inositol is a substance produced naturally inside the body. It is one of the most effective natural remedies to treat PCOS. Inositol is a well-researched substance with proven benefits. Foods such as fruits, nuts, and grains are rich in inositol. Apart from this, it is also available as a supplement on the market. A lot of research has proven its efficacy. However, professional consultation is still advised before starting the dosage.

2. Asparagus Racemosus or Shatavari 

It is an important medicinal plant in Ayurvedic medicine. It is used for the normal development of ovarian follicles, regulates menstrual cycles, and revitalises the female reproductive system.

3. Tinospora Cordifolia or Guduchi

As it is referred to in India, Guduchi is a plant known for its hypoglycemic effects. It is an excellent remedy for inflammation caused by insulin imbalance and ovarian cysts. It also helps in the reduction of insulin resistance and the revitalization of the body.

Foeniculum seeds are a good source of PCOS treatment. They are rich in phytoestrogens, which help lower insulin resistance and the inflammatory conditions of PCOS.

7. Grifola Frondosa or Maitake mushroom

It is a fungus species often used for hypoglycemic conditions. It causes ovulation in PCOS, as per animal studies. It is also used in the treatment of diabetes. The primary indication is increased insulin sensitivity and regulation of blood glucose levels.
