What are the best supplements for PCOS?

Not too long ago, I came across this PCOS supplement resource by Dr. Aviva Romm. In the post, Dr. Aviva details which supplements are recommended for treating polycystic ovarian syndrome naturally and why. Dr. Aviva is an MD, herbalist, and ecologist who promotes prevention and advocates for women’s health issues. Her website is relatable and easy to read so I figured I’d share it with you guys.

After reading the article, I learned some new things and solidified some items my current supplement regimen (woot. woot. I got it right with the inositol). I also almost had a panic attack thinking about how much it would cost to pimp my medicine cabinet out.

In the article, Dr. Aviva recommends at least one supplement from three different categories. In this article, I’ll give you a brief overview of each category, how it helps, and how much cash flow you can expect to dish out.

It is super important to keep track of how supplements are affecting your body so be sure to log your symptoms, improvements, and anything out of the ordinary when starting new supplements. I created a FREE supplement journal to help you stay organized and be accountable on your journey to treat PCOS naturally. Be sure to add all your new supplements for PCOS to the list.

Let us begin.

Category One: Balancing Blood Sugar and Insulin Resistance

This category is pretty simple in theory: the goal is to balance your blood sugar, which will reduce your insulin resistance, and in turn lower your testosterone levels. BUT HOW DO YOU DO THIS? First off, don’t forget to eat whole, fresh, and clean meals. This means plenty of veggies, fruits, and lean meats.

Here is the supplement list for this category along with prices, and a link to purchase from amazon*. All in one spot! Check out Dr. Aviva’s article for more information on the benefits of each supplement.

Category Two: Nourish your Adrenals

Did you know that stress leads to increases in blood sugar and cravings for sugar, carbs and fats? Me either. According to Dr. Aviva, stress activates an excess of cortisol in the body, which leads to high blood sugar, craving, and eventually raises insulin resistance. Dr. Aviva described the phenomenon in her article linked above if you’d like to learn more. The main take away point is that by nourishing your adrenals (which are responsible for producing cortisol) you can avoid raising your insulin resistance and lower your stress levels. We could all use a little stress relief, right? Check out my article on the PCOS blues, HERE.

PCOS is a disorder in which a woman’s hormones are unbalanced so it only makes sense that taking supplements for PCOS that aid in balancing hormones should be added to your daily regimen. Check out recommended supplements for PCOS and detoxing hormones, prices, and links below.

Based on the recommendations above you could have a complete supplements for pcos regimen from about $25 bucks a month up to $200 month. Remember, I’m not a doctor and Dr. Aviva isn’t familiar with your individual needs so always check with your medical doctor before changing up your routine. Dr. Aviva also has her supplement recommendation list available as a PDF so don’t forget to check it out.

I’m currently taking Ovasitol, Folate, prenatal vitamins, and occasionally Vitex (I’m still doing my research on this one). Based on reviews and Dr. Aviva’s article, I’m thinking about adding Peony and Licorice to my regimen.

    1. Melissa,

      I’ve heard really good things about Pregnitude. Have you had success? I don’t take Pregnitude myself because I take Ovasitol which has both Myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol in a 40 to 1 ratio which is the body’s normal level. I don’t know if Pregnitude has both?

      1. Chris, I have taken Pregnitude and it only contains Myo-Inositol and Folic acid. Which before I started Metformin, it helped stabalize my cycles. I went from 48 days, to 38 days with Pregnitude, to 26 days with Metformin.

  2. I have been taking magnesium and even at the 250mg level I have felt less sugar cravings. I just increased my dose to 750mg to see if it would help out even more. I have seen it suggested for PCOS to take about 700mg a day.
