Manage PCOS with lifestyle changes and dietary supplements.

Did you know there are 4 different types of PCOS?

  • Insulin resistance PCOS

  • Adrenal PCOS

  • Inflammatory PCOS

  • Post-pill PCOS

Some of the most common symptoms of PCOS are:

  • Irregular periods

  • Acne

  • Excessive hair growth

  • Mood swings

  • Difficulty in conceiving

  • Weight gain/loss

  • Male/female-pattern baldness

Now, most of these symptoms can also be due to other reasons and NOT PCOS. Which is why it becomes tricky for health experts to diagnose this condition. They run multiple tests (mainly a hormone profile and a USG) to conclude that you have PCOS.

Once it is established that you have PCOS, different doctors have different ways of helping you manage it, regardless of its type and depending on its severity. It includes advising you to make lifestyle modifications, encouraging you to quit smoking and excessive drinking, to putting you on birth control pills. However, in addition, many health care experts today have resorted to recommending supplements to their patients. They have seen supplements such as NAC and Inositol work wonders in managing PCOS.

Cysterhood NAC

It is formulated with clinically-tested ingredients, N-acetylcysteine and Vitamin C, a balanced formulation that helps support your hormone and ovarian health inside out. It has 600mg of NAC with vitamin C, a powerful blend that helps manage PCOS more effectively.

What is NAC?

NAC is short for N-acetylcysteine. It is highly recommended by doctors and clinically proven to support PCOS. A study published in the European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynaecology, and Reproductive Biology found that those resistant to clomid had a nine times higher ovulation rate, and a five times higher pregnancy rate after taking NAC over a trial period.

Benefits of NAC

Detoxifies the body: NAC is a great antioxidant. Many studies have revealed that NAC reduces oxidative stress in the body by eliminating free radicals. It prevents the cells and tissues from damage. It builds immunity and improves heart health and fertility.

Improves insulin resistance: Often, doctors prescribe metformin to help improve insulin resistance. However, several studies have shown that many patients who opted for NAC instead of metformin reported lower levels of insulin resistance along with lowered cholesterol levels, without any side effects (the most common one with metformin is acidity).

Balances the hormones: NAC is associated with lowering androgens and testosterone levels, which in turn improves ovulation, resulting in regular menstrual cycles. Many have also reported a decrease in hirsutism, acne, and better weight management.

Fights inflammation: PCOS causes an increase in the levels of oxidative stress. It damages the cells and tissues, causing inflammation. NAC helps in maintaining the overall health of the reproductive system and reducing inflammation.

Additionally, it has plenty of other health benefits.

Prevents kidney and liver damage: People who consume the right dose of NAC regularly have lower levels of oxidative stress. It protects the kidney and liver health by fighting inflammation and keeping the organs healthy.

It helps improve mental wellness: NAC is clinically proven to reduce mental stress – an important aspect of effectively managing PCOS. It also helps control mood swings, anxiety, and depression.

It helps fight respiratory conditions: People with PCOS are advised to work out regularly and live an active lifestyle. Therefore, it is essential that their respiratory health is good, allowing better oxygen intake. NAC helps in keeping the lungs healthy and has shown to significantly benefit people with chronic bronchitis.

Vitamin B9: It is also known as Folate which is essential to implantation, fetal growth, and organ development.
