PCOS

5 Natural Ingredients to Prevent PCOS

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 13 Oct 2022

When it comes to managing PCOS, diet is one of the most critical aspects of the condition. A PCOS diet should be designed with a person's nutritional needs in mind and should also include foods that can help manage insulin levels. A PCOS diet promotes good blood sugar control, which will help to reduce PCOS symptoms, such as excessive hair growth. It's important to note that the foods you eat can significantly impact your body's ability to produce insulin. If you're struggling with PCOS and its related symptoms, consider changing your diet to include more protein and healthy fats, known to reduce insulin resistance.  

  • Eat everything in moderation. More than 90% of women with PCOS gain weight because they don't eat enough calories or overeat junk food. A healthy diet should include fruits and vegetables for good nutrition, whole grains for fibre, lean proteins for satiety (fullness), and healthy fats to provide satiety and support hormone balance. 
  • The PCOS diet is a low glycemic index (GI) diet. It's a way of eating that helps you lose weight, manage your hormones and improve your overall health. A low GI diet contains many slow-releasing carbohydrates such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables and beans. These foods help keep blood sugar levels steady, so you feel full longer and don't get the cravings for high-carbohydrate foods. 
  • Keep total carbohydrate intake between 20-50 grams per day, depending on activity level. Eat 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, depending on activity level. 
  • Choose lean proteins for at least one serving per meal (e.g., fish with veggies) and limit saturated fats. 
  • One of the essential things in the PCOS diet is to increase the natural ingredients intake. The best solution to PCOS lies in the flora. Natural remedies leave no side effects on your health.  

So here is a list of some natural ingredients that help ease your PCOD problem: 

1) Mulethi: 

Spices are placed in a spoon and placed on the cement ground.

Mulethi is an Ayurvedic element used in PCOS treatment for centuries. It is known to treat diabetes, regulate blood sugar, and regulate hormones and insulin secretion. Mulethi is a great natural supplement to your PCOS diet plan because it can help you stay healthy and prevent weight gain. This supplement is commonly used to help women with PCOS lose weight, but it also helps with other issues, such as diabetes and high cholesterol levels. It also helps in improving fertility and menstruation irregularities by reducing menstrual cramps. In addition, Mulethi is also known for its ability to rejuvenate the skin and hair. Mulethi powder is easily available in the market. You can soak one tsp of the powder in a glass of water overnight and have it on an empty stomach in the morning. You can also add some honey and lemon with the water for a better taste. 

2) Lodhra: 

High angle of bowl with powder and leaves

Lodhra is another Ayurvedic herb that helps restore balance in female hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. This natural ingredient can be used along with ashwagandha to enhance its potency and promote weight loss. Lodhra is a beneficial ingredient in treating PCOS because it reduces insulin resistance caused by hyperinsulinemia (high blood sugar). Insulin resistance affects both men and women with PCOS and those genetically predisposed to develop this condition. Lodhra also helps to improve ovulation by increasing progesterone levels while reducing prolactin levels. Lodhra is also a tonic herb used in Ayurveda to improve immunity and stamina. Mix 1/2 tsp of Lodhra powder in plain water and consume twice daily.

 

 

If you are looking for a more convenient solution, replace your coffee mugs with a cup of herbal tea like andMe's plant-based PCOS tea. This vegan and non-toxic PCOS tea benefits the period cycle, weight loss, and energy level and helps reduce hormonal acne and body hair. 

 

 

3) Chamomile tea:

This ingredient is famous for regulating the sleep cycle, but it is also beneficial for preventing your PCOD problem. In addition, chamomile consumption can also help regulate good and bad cholesterol levels, which is essential for women with PCOS. Chamomile tea is also believed to stimulate the estrogen receptor mechanism in our body. 

4) Flaxseeds:

Flaxseeds profoundly impact testosterone levels. In addition, the active compounds in flaxseeds help diminish PCOS symptoms by decreasing androgen secretion. This may cause a reduction in body hair, acne, male pattern baldness, body weight etc. You can add flaxseeds to milkshakes, smoothies, and even desserts like mousse or puddings. 

5) Ashwagandha:

Ashwagandha is an herb used in Ayurveda for centuries to treat various conditions, including PCOS symptoms. Ashwagandha may be able to regulate hormones and increase estrogen production in women with PCOS, so it's worth looking into if you're struggling with this condition on your own. An imbalance of LH (luteinizing hormone) causes irregular periods, acne, and other hormonal imbalances in women with PCOS. Ashwagandha helps regularize LH levels and regulate ovulation. Sometimes PCOD problem symptoms can also cause anxiety and depression in women. Ashwagandha powder also helps calm your nervous system and helps improve your sleep cycle. You can add Ashwagandha powder to tea, smoothie, or detox juices. You can take this natural element along with mulethi powder for the best results.

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).
