FERTIPIL PLUS FOR PCOS
Fertipil Plus PCOS is a scientifically designed product which focusses on assisting women in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome, better known as PCOS.
Common PCOS Symptoms are:-
- Weight gain
- Excessive hair growth (normally on face or back)
- Blotches on skin under the arms or breasts
- Irregular periods
The ingredients contained in Fertipil Plus PCOS have shown to significantly increase chances of falling pregnant by reducing the size of cysts on the ovaries and producing more quality oocytes.
Studies show that the ingredients contained in Fertipil Plus PCOS can assist with:
- Reducing the size of ovarian cysts
- Improving the number of good quality of oocytes
- Having an insulin sensitizing effect on the body
- Regulating menstrual cycles
- Promoting ovulation rates
Who should take Fertipil Plus PCOS?
- Recommended for all women, trying to fall pregnant or not, who have symptoms of PCOS such as excessive weight gain, irregular periods, acne, excessive hair on face or back.
How long should Fertipil Plus PCOS be taken?
- Fertipil Plus PCOS should be taken for at least 3-6 months before treatment is stopped, or if pregnancy is desired, take daily until preegnancy has been confirmed.
- Hormone levels may take time to balance out so Fertipil Plus PCOS must be taken on a continuous basis for best results.
Dosage and instructions for use:-
- Take 1 sachet 2 times a day dissolved in 250ml of water. Take Fertipil Plus PCOS after a meal.
What makes Fertipil Plus PCOS different to other PCOS products?
- Apart from the fact that Fertipil Plus PCOS has its own formulation compared to other products, Fertipil Plus PCOS contains 60 sachets (2 x daily) for 30 days.
- Because PCOS is mostly caused due to a level of insulin resistance, insulin levels must be maintained and managed. For best results dosages should be split and taken 2 times during the day to allow for effective management of insulin levels. It is for this reason that we provide you with a 60 sachet 1-month option.
Myo Inositol 2000mg
D-Chiro Inositol 50mg
Alpha Lipoic Acid 100mg
Folic Acid 250mcg
INOSITOL (Myo-lnositol & D-Chiro Inositol)
Studies have shown that a combination of Inositol and Folic acid substantially reduces the size of ovarian cysts and increases egg quality and reduces the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome in women undergoing ovulation induction as part of an IVF cycle.
Fertipil Plus PCOS contains both Inositol and Folic acid in dosages best suited for women who are trying to conceive. Myo-lnositol (Ml) hass been found to improve the number of good quality oocytes, clinical pregnancies, and delivery rates in overweight women with PCOS.
Myo- Inositol has shown to increase the proportion of top quality oocytes and has shown to decrease the size of ovarian cysts by having an insulin sensitizing effect (Insulin resistance is a major cause of PCOS) and by lowering androgen levels in women who suffer from PCOS.
It has also shown to induce regular ovulation in women suffering from PCOS.
Administration of D-Chiro Inositol has been shown to reduce insulin and free testosterone levels, while decreasing systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and serum triglycerides.
It has also been shown to improve endocrine parameters including serum testosterone, serum androstenedione, and gonadotropin-releasing hormone-induced LH response. It was also found to reduce BMI and improved insulin sensitivity markers in PCOS patients with diabetic relatives, who exhibit a greater response as compared to those with no family history of diabetes.
The effect of D-Chiro Inositol extends to menstrual regularity, which improves with its supplementation. This regularity is associated with a decrease in serum AMH and in insulin resistance.
D-Chiro Inositol may improve the maturity and quality of oocytes significantly, while reducing oxidative stress.
D-Chiro Inositol has been shown to drastically reduce insulin and male hormone levels (both causes of PCOS) in the body and has also shown to increase the quality of oocytes.
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID
Among the many possible interventions in PCOS, other than pharmacological treatments such as the use of metformin , various integrative compounds have been proposed such as the two isoforms of inositol, that is myo-inositol, D-Chiro-inositol (DCI – as discussed above), and alpha lipoic acid.
Both inositols and Alpha Lipoic Acid were reported to be effective in reducing the insulin resistance in PCOS patients. While inositols are involved in the structure of the post receptor transduction of the signal induced by the linkage of insulin on its receptor, Alpha Lipoic Acid has been demonstrated in the animal model to increase glucose utilization.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is also known as a potent antioxidant which reduces oxidative stress in the female reproductive system. Constant oxidative stress in the body has shown to drastically decrease normal ovulation rates in women.
Folic Acid and PCOS
Several clinical studies have found success when combining folic acid with myo-inositol. The combination is thought to improve fertility in women with PCOS by improving insulin sensitivity, which is also a feature of PCOS (insulin sensitivity is where your body doesn’t use insulin effectively.
Folic acid and neural tube defects
Folic acid (also known as folate or vitamin B9) is a vitamin which is crucial for two main reasons, before and during conception; it increases your fertility rate and lowers the risk of birth defects for your baby. This is the case due to its ability to help grow and protect cells in your body. It is also essential for the development of DNA. This is especially critical during pregnancy, when cells in your body are growing and dividing very quickly in order for your uterus to expand, the placenta to develop, blood circulation to increase, and the fetus to grow. The CDC recommends that you take folic acid supplements every day, for at least a month before you become pregnant, and every day while pregnant.
It has become a commonly known fact that the use of Folic Acid (which is part of the B vitamin group) before pregnancy prevents neural tube defects. Therefore, public health authorities all over Europe recommend an intake of 400 µg folate per day for women of reproductive age.
Taking a regular daily dose of folic acid supplements has been shown to improve fertility in women. The data shows that those taking the supplement regularly had a 40% lowered risk of suffering from problems related to egg production (20%, the second biggest cause, of female infertility is as a result of ovulation issues).
Many other studies suggested that folic acid lowers the risk of birth defects by at least 50% and if you’ve already had a baby with a defect, it can reduce the risk for your next child by as much as 70%. Some defects are fatal and other can leave your baby permanently disabled.
They are scary problems, to say the least, and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Examples include:
- Neural tube defects (NTDs)
- Heart and limb defects
- Urinary tract anomalies
- Narrowing of the lower stomach valve
- Oral facial clefts (like cleft lip and cleft palate)
These can occur within the first 3-4 weeks of pregnancy, before the woman is even aware that she is pregnant.
Only 50% of pregnancies are planned and therefore it is important for every women of childbearing age to make sure that she has enough folic acid in her body.
