B Vitamins and PCOS

 B Vitamins and how important they are if you have PCOS

Today I’m really excited to talk to you about a group of vitamins really vital for female health and those particularly with hormone dysregulation, PCOS and weight issues.

The B vitamins are very important in helping to improve the symptoms of PCOS. Its really important to make sure you have these vitamins in a combined vitamin as they all work together on different elements! Vitamins B2, B3, B5 and B6 are particularly useful for weight and maintaining and managing it. One of the B vitamins - Vitamin B2 ( riboflavin) helps to turn the food you eat via fat, sugar and protein to the energy we need to survive(its also the one that turns your wee bright yellow!) B3 another vitamin, is an important co-factor in supporting glucose tolerance factor (GTF), GTF is something that allows your body to keep an eye on blood sugar . It needs vitamin B3 to help this process, almost like food for your GTF! Vitamin B5 is also important as it helps your body metabolises fat, so important if you are overweight and need to lose weight to qualify for fertility support! B6 is also marvellous as it supports proper hormonal balance and may be one deficiency present if you suffer from PMT. It helps to maintain blood sugar, oestrogen and also progesterone and helps in mood regulation via serotonin. Many women with PCOS have deficiencies in this and also low progesterone, so worth topping up your levels with B6 in this case. B6 is also part of a ‘gang’ with B2 and B3, that will help your body to make and move thyroxine, needed for normal thyroid hormone production. Continue reading

Amy's story

Pregnant with first baby, thanks to OvuSense

My name is Amy and I just wanted to share some good news! I have PCOS and I managed to get pregnant after using OvuSense for 3 months. Here's my story.

I was diagnosed at the age of 19 with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). My doctor at the time actually told me that my chances of getting pregnant were pretty low with PCOS. I knew I wanted to be a mother one day so, as you can imagine, I was completely devastated by this news. Since being diagnosed, I have been on the drug, Metformin to try and help my symptoms.

Inositol and PCOS - your questions answered

My name is Angela and I'm a Nutritional Therapist in the UK. Recently, I have been supporting Ovusense and the Facebook forums attached with this fabulous fertility monitor over the last few months via a chance meeting with Kate Davies, Fertility Nurse for Ovusense, at the Fertility Show in London last year.

I have been really delighted be part of this team as nutrition and the world of supplements can be so confusing! As part of the PCOS Fertility Support UK Forum, and as a fertility nutritionist, I am happy to give advice on a supplement that I feel is suited to just about anyone who suffers from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and also tend to get such amazing results with almost no side effects.
