Inositol and ovarian function
May 26, 2016
You have probably heard of the benefits of inositol for mood related disorders; from depression, to OCD, and more.
But did you know that inositol can be very effective for ovarian health?
This can be an important consideration in working with a patient…here’s why.
I recently had a patient, whom we were using inositol as part of a womens ovarian health protocol, take the inositol as recommended at 1 scoop twice daily. Inositol has shown to promote healthy ovarian function, has been used in issues of trouble conceiving, maintains healthy LH, FSH, androgen and insulin levels.
The patient is a peri-menopausal, still regular menses, as many do have been noticing irregular flow of menses from time to time over last year or so…but this cycle through her for a loop. After looking at all lifestyle issues, hormonal usage, stress, thyroid, etc. her lengthy, and very active menses and flow we surmised to be due to the inositol.
Just a tid bit of information, if you find yourself using inositol to a female with fluctuating, variable or challenging hormonal cycles.
