amitamin® Ovarifert is a food for special medical purposes for the dietary management of women with fertility problems related to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is the most common cause when it comes to decreased fertility or infertility of women. It is a complex of symptoms like anovulation, male pattern hair groth and unbalanced hormonal status.
What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a hormonal disorder that is widespread among women of childbearing age. It is characterised by an often abnormal insulin metabolism and the over production of “male” hormones. It is quite natural that women produce small amounts of “male” hormones, so-called androgens. The most wellknown androgen is testosterone. Women with PCOS produce increased amounts of these “male” hormones, especially testosterone. The symptoms of this hormonal imbalance may include, but are not limited to irregular menstruation, increased hair growth on body and face and a very large number of cysts on the ovaries.
What does amitamin® Ovarifert do?
amitamin® Ovarifert supports the particular nutritional and physiological demands of women with PCOS. It is able to treat its symptoms, especially a limited or absent ovulation. The product is based on the findings of nutritional medicine and contributes to the normal female hormone system without containing hormones itself. All its ingredients are officially classified as foods.
amitamin® Ovarifert is therefore very safe to use. Please read the directions very carefully and follow the instructions on this pack or the instructions of your doctor or pharmacist.
Who is at risk of PCOS?
PCOS occurrs more frequently in overweight than in slim women. A genetic predisposition may also lead to the development of PCOS. Symptoms may occur immediately after the onset of menstruation, but also from the mid 20s and some symptoms may still occur after menopause.
What are the symptoms of PCOS?
The symptoms of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome usually do not occur all at the same time. Often only one or more of the following disorders are present:
Irregular menstruation and fewer than 9 cycles per year;
Absence of menstruation (amenorrhea);
Unusually strong menstrual bleeding;
Infertility (non-occurring pregnancy);
Excessive, unwanted hair growth especially on body and face;
Rather thin head hair;
Weight increase, in particular on the abdomen;
Problematic, impure skin;
Mood swings, depression or anxiety.
Each woman with PCOS has her own “mix” of more or less pronounced symptoms. All symptoms appear together only in rare cases.
What are the causes of PCOS?
The causes of PCOS are largely unknown. It is possible that multiple causes contribute to this condition. There appears to be a correlation between women who are obese and have high levels of insulin and PCOS. In cases of insulin resistance the body’s own insulin is not sufficiently effective in the body. The metabolism subsequently reacts by producing more insulin in the pancreas. This leads to excess insulin, which has an adverse effect on the ovaries.
Ovary function is controlled by a hormone called “Insulin-like Growth Factor” (IGF). Due to its similarity to insuline, the IGF-governed ovary regulation gets disrupted when normal insuline levels are elevated, leading to PCOS symptoms. Controlling blood glucose levels and insulin via their diet can therefore have positive effects for women with PCOS.
Many clinical studies have found that the two inositols myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol combined with alpha-lipoic acid can help to improve insulin sensitivity and thus regulate overall insulin levels. Furthermore, androgen production has been shown to normalise in association with the two inositols. Myo-inositol, alphalipoic acid and D-chiro-inositol have a combined complementary effect on cellular metabolism. amitamin® Ovarifert contains these micronutrients in a high-quality formula.
