Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder that affects 1 in 10 women, with some studies suggesting 1 in 5 women. PCOS is often associated with hormone irregularities. The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. PCOS can be caused by higher levels of androgen or male hormones. The high levels of androgens prevent the ovaries from producing enough progesterone, resulting in undeveloped follicles. As a result, ovulation cannot occur and the immune follicles turn into small cysts on the ovaries. PCOS is a chronic condition that, when left untreated, can lead to more serious health problems such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Common symptoms include irregular menstruation, infertility, abnormal hair growth, acne and weight gain. Symptoms vary from person to person.

  • 8-13% of menstruators of reproductive age are affected by PCOS 
  • 75% of menstruators are unaware they have PCOS
  • 70% of menstruators diagnosed are also insulin resistant 
  • PCOS may or may not have cysts
  • There is no cure for PCOS but it can be managed

Key Ingredients

PCOS tincture is firmly rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and infused with the knowledge of modern science.

An overall harmonising herb, it helps to relieve painful menstruation and improve progesterone production. Gan Cao, Glycyrrhiza glabra, or Licorice Root, has a spasmolytic effect on uterine contraction thereby relaxing the uterus and reducing cramping. Recent studies showed that Gan Cao helped alleviate hyperandrogenism (the excessive presence of the male sex hormones testosterone, androsterone and androstenedione) in PCOS*.

Known by the scientific name of Cinnamomum verum, Rou Gui is thought to be useful in improving insulin sensitivity in women with PCOS.
