[article]Do you know that 1 in 5 women in India and 1 in 10 women of child bearing age worldwide have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome? It has become an urban epidemic and one of the main reasons for infertility in women of reproductive age, and many women feel lost & lonely because it affects their fertility or period cycle, ability to conceive, their appearance and weight.

&Me wants every woman suffering from PCOS to move on from feeling helpless to taking control of it. We have developed a unique tea to balance hormones and alleviate a woman of her PCOS symptoms. 

Before we learn more about this unique product. Let us learn more about PCOS and understand parts of the female reproductive system and their functions.

The reproductive system is made up of:

1.Two Ovaries: oval shaped sacs that produce the eggs. 

2.Two Fallopian tubes: pipes which carry the egg from the ovaries to a bag called the uterus

3 Uterus: where the egg fuses with the sperm and eventually houses the baby in a pregnant woman

4.Vagina: it is the tube through which the sperms flow to the uterus to merge with the egg.

This system needs 4 hormones to function smoothly:

FSH and LH are produced in the brain. FSH is a hormone that tells the ovaries to produce the egg. The newly produced egg is contained in a sac called the corpus luteum. And LH tells the ovaries to release the eggs into the uterus.

Progesterone and Estrogen are the two hormones made by the ovaries. They prepare your uterus for pregnancy by making the uterus lining thick like a soft cushion/ shock proof surface to receive the egg from the ovaries. 

What is the cause of PCOS?

The top one among the issues is Hormone imbalance.-Androgen hormones- Women with high levels of Androgens in the body are at a great risk of getting PCOS. This causes excess facial hair growth.
Insulin Resistance (IR): When the body cannot use a hormone called insulin to lower blood sugar quantity. This can lead to diabetes.

High level of LH, low levels of FSH and low level of progesterone: The egg is not produced, and the uterus is not cushioned enough for the egg or pregnancy.In some people, small compartments of fluids called Cysts can grow in the ovaries and make them produce less eggs. This causes irregular periods.It is genetic for some women, if women in the previous generations in the family have PCOS.  

What does PCOS do to the body?

A woman with PCOS can experience below listed symtoms-

1.Abnormal period cycle (excess, irregular or missed periods), weight gain, acne, oily skin, excess facial hair growth, hair thinning on the head, dark patches on the skin, depression, anxiety, mood swings and irritability.

2.Women struggle to get pregnant because it affects their fertility. Women can also develop diabetes and obesity in extreme cases.

How can PCOS be treated?

Many women are prescribed synthetic hormones/ medicines to treat the hormonal imbalances or diabetes associated with PCOS. These are only temporary measures with many negative side effects. 

There is a call for a safe and holistic approach to manage PCOS. &Me’s PCOS tea is a synergistic combination of herbs and nutrients can:

1. Regulate cycles

2.Manage weight 

3.Reduce facial hair and acne

Ingredients that help Regulate cycles

In case of PCOS your period cycles are irregular or absent due to hormonal imbalance. Specific ingredients can balance hormone quantities. They ultimately make sure you ovulate to have regular period cycles.

Lodhra

It is an Ayurvedic herb. It balances FSH and LH in the body. It tells your ovaries to produce eggs and helps in the making of corpus luteum which produces progesterone to prepare the uterus for pregnancy. 

Vitamin B6

This also helps balance hormones in the body.It is required for making the corpus luteum for progesterone. It also prevents progesterone deficiency. 

Zinc

Zinc tells the pituitary gland (a part of the brain) to produce FSH. FSH tells the ovaries to produce eggs and make progesterone for pregnancy. 

Ingredients that help Manage Weight 

Women with PCOS have Insulin Resistance (high insulin level in blood) and as a result have high blood sugar levels. High insulin level other hormone changes in the body to increase appetite and decrease fat burning, which leads to weight gain. There are some ingredients which help lose or manage weight:

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
