While it is not understood what the exact cause of PCOS is, research suggests that a process called oxidative stress, has something to do with it.
Oxidation is a normal and necessary process that takes place in your body. Oxidative stress, on the other hand, occurs when there is an imbalance between free radicals (oxygen-containing molecules) and antioxidants in your body.
Oxidative stress may be linked to PCOS by contributing to increased levels of male hormones, infertility and insulin resistance.
What does this evidence mean for PCOS management?
In order to reduce the formation of free radicals in your body, you need more antioxidants (molecules that help protect against the effects of free radicals) - Sinopol® may be able to help.Find Out More
Several factors contribute to oxidative stress and excess free radical production. This includes:
Obesity, diets high in sugar, fat and processed foods along with smoking of tobacco products and alcohol consumption.
Health problems related to metabolic dysfunction e.g inflammation and certain cancers.
Exposure to pollution, radiation and a variety of other environmental toxins such as pesticides and industrial chemicals.
Oxidative stress may damage cells, proteins, and DNA. This may contribute to aging signs such as wrinkles, graying hair and decreased eyesight.
This can include physical muscle and/or joint pain as well as headaches.
Memory loss or brain fog.
This can lead to insulin resistance and eventually even type 2 diabetesFind Out More
Oxidative stress promotes insulin resistance. The ovaries respond to the increased insulin by producing androgens (male hormones). The presence of excessive male hormones and the effect they have on the female body is referred to as hyperandrogenism.Find Out More
Oxidative stress can compromise the quality of the egg cell used in assisted fertility procedures such as in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). This may decrease the chances of a successful IVF procedure, or may result in miscarriage. and FIVET.Find Out More
