Provation's Natural Balance.
Provation's Natural Balance.
Myoinositol improves hormonal balance and decreases the male hormones, often found to be elevated.
It reduces androgen levels (testosterone and androstenedione), corrects the LH/FSH ratio, restores normal menstrual cycles and induces ovulation, thereby facilitating spontaneous pregnancies by adequate luteal phase progesterone production. 1
Cinnamon has been shown to improve menstrual cycles in women with menstrual irregularities.
It has been found to have insulin sensitizing effect and improve menstrual cyclicity in women with hormonal imbalance. 2
Chromium may improve the profile in women with hormonal imbalance.
Supplementation has been shown to decrease insulin resistance and improve lipid profile and may improve glycemic control. 3
Curcumin may improve symptoms of metabolic imbalance.
May improve glycemic control and lipid metabolism in patients with hormonal imbalance and metabolic abnormality without significant adverse effects. 4
Zinc may decrease androgen hormones and improve ovarian function.
Improves ovarian function thereby decreasing androgens and increasing progesterone, which is a natural androgen blocker. It also inhibits the enzyme 5 alpha-reductase and therefore reduces the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. 5
Magnesium may improve hormone levels.
Magnesium supplementation resulted in reduced BMI and testosterone levels as well as increased DHEA concentrations in women with hormonal imbalance and may decrease serum LH levels. 6
Manokolin K (Red Yeast) may improve hormone levels in women.
It has the ability to inhibit steroid synthesis which was claimed to be responsible for the observed decrease in hyperandrogenism, which may further restore ovulation in hormonal imbalance patients. 7
Co-Enzyme Q10 A nutrient supplementation that includes folic acid and co-enzyme Q10, given for a minimum of 3 months, is beneficial for women with PCOS in terms of PCOS-specific parameters. 8
Potassium has been recommended to be added to patients with PCOS as lower levels have been shown to exacerbate inflammatory reactions seen in PCOS. 9
Berberine berberine improved insulin resistance in ovarian theca cells with an improvement of the ovulation rate per cycle, so berberine is also effective on fertility and live birth rates. 10
