PCOS and Inofolic Alpha

If you have PCOS, Inofolic Alpha has been proven to restore ovulation in 95% of women after 3 months. It also helps alleviate many other PCOS symptoms.

Indeed, every woman should start taking this PCOS supplement as soon as she decides to try to conceive as it can help regulate ovulation and improve the quality of the egg.

What is myo-inositol?

Myo-inositol supports the activity of a number of hormones in the body, especially reproductive hormones. It is likely to be present in your diet, but many people need to supplement this important nutrient.

Myo-inositol and PCOS

Myo-inositol is used to improve ovulation and egg quality, especially in women with PCOS. It also helps reduce the symptoms of PCOS such as unwanted hair, acne and oily skin. Interestingly, about 35-40% of people do not absorb myo-inositol very well. This is overcome by taking it in combination with Alphalactalbumin, an active ingredient in Inofolic Alpha, which is why Inofolic Alpha achieves superior results compared with products containing myo-inositol alone.

How long does myo-inositol take to work?

For best results, myo-inositol should be taken for at least three months and continued for as long as necessary. When taken throughout pregnancy, it can help reduce the incidence of gestational diabetes. Many women continue taking myo-inositol even outside of pregnancy to maintain their quality of life.

What is the difference between inositol and myo-inositol?

Inositol is the general name for a molecule with a very simple chemical formula. The arrangement of the molecule can differ and this affects its biological activity. Myo-inositol is a particular arrangement (Isomer), which has a strong biological activity in the areas of reproduction and PCOS.

What are the best supplements for PCOS?

Sadly, there is no cure for PCOS so managing your symptoms with the right supplements is crucial. The most researched supplement in the treatment of PCOS is the B vitamin myo-inositol. Myo-inositol also reduces insulin resistance and in turn reduces testosterone and androgen levels, such that unwanted hair growth, oily skin and acne can all be reduced. Whilst this vitamin is likely to be present in your diet most PCOS women will need to supplement myo-inositol. However, taking myo-inositol alone can be a problem as almost 40% of PCOS suffers do not absorb myo-inositol very well. This is overcome by taking it in combination with another supplement called alpha-lactalbumin, an active ingredient in Inofolic Alpha. Studies show, when alpha-lactalbumin is taken in combination with myo-inositol there is an improvement in the absorption of myo-inositol within the body. This results in a reduction in PCOS symptoms and ultimately improved clinical outcome for PCOS women. Furthermore, alpha-lactalbumin also reduces inflammation, a common underlying factor in PCOS.

If you are taking a PCOS supplement to improve your fertility, then a combination of myo-inositol and alpha lactalbumin is crucial as it is proven to restore ovulation in 95% of PCOS women. In addition, for women trying to conceive folic acid is a must. This vitamin reduces the risk of birth defects and is one of the key ingredients in Inofolic Alpha.

If you are looking for any additional support Zinc supplements can give a boost both to your fertility and your immune system, and there is some evidence to show an improvement in excessive hair growth and alopecia in PCOS women. Zinc can be found in the micro-nutrient profile of Impryl a conception supplement, made with the right combination of micro-nutrient to balance your metabolism and to improve your egg quality, Impryl is safe to take in combination with Inofolic Alpha.

Natural supplements for PCOS

Many vitamins and minerals can be found in regular foods. However, it can be difficult to get the right nutrients from diet alone. This is where natural supplements come in.

Myo-inositol is a prime example of this. Although it is naturally occurring in food, women with PCOS are often unable to adequately absorb it. Inofolic Alpha, however, combines myo-inositol with alpha lactalbumin, which helps PCOS women to absorb more of this important vitamin, improve their chances of conceiving and find relief from PCOS symptoms. Moreover, all the ingredients found in Inofolic Alpha are derived from natural sources.

In addition, if you are looking for natural home remedies that may help with PCOS symptom management, here are a few that you could try.

  • Cinnamon. Extracts from cinnamon trees have been suggested to assist with both insulin resistance and menstruation regulation, however the evidence around this area is limited. You could even try adding a sprinkle to your morning porridge for a nutritional boost to your daily diet.
  • Turmeric. It is suggested by some that turmeric supplements could help lower your insulin resistance. Turmeric is also supposed to have anti-inflammatory properties, by simply adding this spice into your daily cooking you could be doing your body some good.
  • Cod liver oil contains vitamins A and D and omega-3 fatty acids which have been suggested by some to contribute towards keeping your menstrual cycle on track, however more research is needed in this area.
  • Evening primrose oil. Use of this has been associated with premenstrual syndrome, but there is little evidence to support its use in PCOS management.

How to improve fertility with PCOS?

Many women with PCOS may not ovulate or have regular periods, but Inofolic Alpha is proven to restore ovulation by 95% in women with PCOS. A great many women choose to monitor their ovulation using apps and ovulation trackers, which help them decide when they should try to conceive.

A healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise can also play an important role in improving your fertility, particularly if you are overweight. With regards to your diet, avoid processed foods and opt instead for whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and oily fish.

Allied to this, ensure you get 8 to 10 hours of sleep per night, keeping a regular sleep timetable. A healthy sleep routine will also lower your levels of stress, which is another important factor in improving your fertility.

How to regulate your period with PCOS supplements?

Many women with PCOS suffer with irregular or absent periods. Inofolic Alpha addresses the issue right from the core of the problem. The unique formulation helps by reducing the number of androgens (male hormones) in your body, to bring your hormones back into balance and regulate your periods.

Vitamin D is widely known for its many benefits and is obtained from sunlight and from the diet, leading many people to top up the vitamin D levels. A lesser-known benefit, perhaps, is that Vitamin D in combination with Calcium may help keep your periods regular, especially those PCOS women on prescription medication like metformin. Again, if you are concerned that you are not getting enough Vitamin D from your diet or have been diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency speak to your doctor immediately, they may recommend taking a form of vitamin D supplement to improve your overall vitamin D status.

How long does it take the average couple to conceive?

Most couples will get pregnant within 12 months of trying if they are having sex regularly and are not using contraception.

The truth is that, even if you are lucky and have perfect fertile health, there are things that can go wrong at every stage which make successful conception unlikely.
