Why does PCOS cause excessive growth of facial or body hair?

Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) often have excess hair growth caused by high androgen (male hormone) levels, which can also cause thinning hair and hair loss from the scalp.

Unwanted hair growth (hirsutism) on the face, chest and buttocks, affects about 70% of women with PCOS. Again, this It is caused by an excess of androgens.

How to stop facial hair growth due to PCOS

As with most PCOS symptoms, unwanted hair growth (hirsutism) is caused by high androgen (male hormone) levels, which can also cause thinning hair and hair loss from the scalp. Hirsutism affects around 70% of women with PCOS.

Often, ladies with this problem will be prescribed the contraceptive pill as that can help to control hormone levels. There is encouraging research showing a potential benefit in PCOS women who have taken myo-inositol supplementation

 

How can Inofolic Alpha stop my hair growth?

If you are suffering from acne, hirsutism (excessive body hair) or other effects of hyperandrogenism, this is because women with PCOS often have high testosterone levels.

Myo-inositol can help to maintain balance in these hormones.

Myo-inositol is a key nutrient the body seeks to maintain hormonal balance and metabolic functions. Up to 38% of PCOS women struggle to absorb myo-inositol from food sources or supplements alone, which is why the addition of alpha-lactalbumin in Inofolic® Alpha is so important.

Inofolic® Alpha, is well-researched with its ingredients originating from natural sources with little or no side effects.
