PCOS is becoming so common in masses, yet is very much manageable. Taking a well-balanced diet full of essential nutrients and vitamins can fix the hormone and keep the body functioning. There are four significant nutrients that are very much helpful in PCOS. They can be easily sourced from food but taking supplements for the same will ensure the adequacy. The correct dosage of these nutrients can very well be discussed with the doctors.

Inositol/Myoinositol – It is a vitamin-like substance found in several plants and animals. They are found in cantaloupe, citrus fruit, beans, brown rice, corn and sesame seeds, and wheat bran. This supplement is intensively used in treating many metabolic conditions. In this case, it helps to improve ovarian function and regularises periods making it easier to conceive.

Omega-3 fatty acid – It is an essential fatty acid and belongs to the family of polyunsaturated fats. Consumption of omega-3 has several medical benefits; it helps in avoiding CVS and heart-related disorders. In PCOS women, it increases glucose metabolism and reduces hunger which further aids in weight loss. Omega 3 sources include fatty fish, flax seeds oil, walnuts, etc.

Chromium – It is an important nutrient. It metabolizes sugar and fat. It reduces blood sugar levels and increases insulin sensitivity. The RDA of this nutrient is 50-200 mg. Chromium is easily found in shellfish, broccoli, and nuts. It is hardly found in plant or animal-based products. Thus, most people rely on its supplements. 

N-acetylcysteine – It is a supplement that is derived from cysteine (amino acid).it builds antioxidants in the body. It increases fertility and reduces insulin resistance in women suffering from PCOS. Its prime sources are beans, lentils, spinach, bananas, salmon, and tuna.
