Top 5 Supplements for PCOS

What is PCOS?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder in which the ovaries of women produce an abnormal amount of androgens. PCOS is one of the most common causes of female infertility. 

When a woman's body does not make enough hormone for ovulation, the ovaries can develop many small cysts which produce hormones called androgens. Women who have PCOS often have high levels of androgens.

However, not all women who have PCOS develop cysts in their ovaries. Some women with this disorder might not have cysts in their ovaries, while some women without this disorder might have cysts in their ovaries.

 

The exact causes of PCOS are unknown. However, 70% of women with PCOS have insulin resistance. The insulin levels built up in a woman's body may cause high levels of androgens.

Obesity is one of the factors of high insulin levels and makes PCOS symptoms worse.
