At Nourished we are committed to destigmatising women’s health issues and providing bespoke and impactful solutions which will make a real difference in their everyday lives.
Introducing Inositol; a powerful Nourishment bursting with scientifically-backed health benefits. Clinical studies have highlighted the impressive properties that Inositol has, including its ability to improve menstrual cycles, metabolic health and reduce the symptoms of PCOS.
What is Inositol?
Inositol is a naturally occurring carbocyclic sugar that plays a key role in the body, including providing structure to cell membranes, helping to balance hormones and important chemical messengers in the brain.
As hormonal health conditions affect 10-20% of all women of reproductive age worldwide, Inositol (often referred to as B8) has been extensively studied due to the host of benefits it offers for those with PCOS.
Our latest scientifically-backed edition to the Nourished line-up is here to help, because although PCOS is not a choice, Inositol can help relieve that discomfort and get you on your way back to being you.
What are the Benefits of Inositol
Managing the symptoms of PCOS can be extremely exhausting and occur on a daily basis, that’s why understanding how Inositol can help is very important.
Supplementing Inositol has been shown to support ovarian function and metabolic hormonal parameters of people who suffer from PCOS.
Scientific studies have shown that Inositol can restore ovarian activity/regularity and increase fertility [i], as well as helping to improve the regularity of the menstrual cycle.[ii]
According to studies, insulin resistance is very common in women suffering from PCOS, no matter what their BMI was [i]. This high-impact active ingredient has shown to have a beneficial effect on the metabolic profile of women with PCOS but helps to regulate insulin levels in those with insulin resistance. These positive changes have been shown to reduce blood pressure too [iii].
Inositol can also limit the presence of hyperandrogenism, which refers to the presence of male sex hormones such as testosterone and how they can affect the female body. [iv]
