Fertilovit® FPCOS is a food for special medical purposes that has been tailored to meet the specific needs of women with PCOS planning for pregnancy. As a consequence of elevated levels of male hormones, they often suffer from disorders of oocyte maturation associated with irregular or lacking menstrual bleeding. Insulin resistance occurs frequently as well. This leads to a specifically increased demand for vitamins, minerals and other substances. Inositol, N-acetyl-L-cysteine, DHA and EPA in combination with highly dosed folic acid and other nutrients cover this demand, thus supporting women with PCOS planning for pregnancy
Fertilovit® FPCOS: For preconceptional dietary management of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Micronutrient combination with inositol, N-acetyl-L-cysteine, chromium and high-dose folic acid to meet the increased need for inositol, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
PCOS: INSULIN NEEDS INOSITOLS
A frequent reason for PCOS is a disturbance of insulin metabolism, which is referred to as insulin resistance. In this condition, the insulin (which is secreted by the pancreas) cannot excert its normal effects at the receptors of sugar-metabolizing tissue-cells. Trying to compensate for this, the pancreas secrets more and more insulin, ultimately leading to hyperinsulinemia. Due to the similarity of insulin to IGF (insulin-like growth factor), which is an important regulator of the ovary, this results in irregularities of ovarian function. Therefore PCOS-patients are recommended to take up micronutrients that contribute to normalisation of blood sugar levels and support insulin action. Well characterized are the inositols, that play an important role in insulin signal transduction.
