Women suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), have abnormally higher levels of testosterone and DHT in their bodies - much higher than women without PCOS. Excessive levels of androgenic hormones such as testosterone, androstenedione, and DHEA are believed to be the cause of one of the most troubling symptoms of PCOS – hirsutism (too much hair in all of the wrong places) and acne. High androgen levels in PCOS can cause hormone imbalances that lead to infertility; PCOS is the most common cause of infertility in women.
Saw Palmetto berry interferes with dihydrotestosterone binding to the androgen receptor, acting as a phytoestrogen and aids with blocking excessive testosterone in women and can also stimulate breast growth.
Fennel seed stimulates breast growth in two ways by being a phytoestrogen and a prolactin stimulant. It also contains a phytoestrogenic compound known as estragole that stimulates the growth of the mammary glands (breast).
Fenugreek contains diosgenin, a phytoestrogen that mimics the effects of estrogen in the body. Fenugreek is also one of nature's most potent prolactin stimulators that aids in the increase of breast size.
CHASTEBERRY - VITEX FRUIT
Chasteberry is extensively used in the treatment of hormonal disorders in women. It aids in the proper and normal functioning of the pituitary gland. Chasteberry also helps balance the level of progesterone in women.
Regular consumption of chasteberry helps maintain balance and accuracy of hormone levels in the body. Some herbalists also use the herb for treating polycystic ovary syndrome - PCOS. Women suffering from PCOS do not experience a regular menstrual cycle which leads to infertility due to lack of ovulation. Sufficient dosage of chasteberry, when taken regularly, helps balance the progesterone level in the body and can also eventually shrink ovarian cysts. This balance will lead to regular ovulation within the female body.
