Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), also known as polycystic ovarian disorder (PCOD), is hormonal disorder causing enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the outer edges. This is a very common condition affecting 5% to 10% of women in the age group 12–45 years. It is caused due to hormonal imbalance. It can cause problems with menstrual periods and make it difficult for her to conceive. The principal features include no ovulation, irregular periods, acne and hirsutism. If not treated it can cause insulin resistant diabetes, obesity and high cholesterol leading to heart disease. It can also lead to chronic mental illnesses, such as depression and anxiety.
There is no cure for PCOD, but it is possible to alleviate the symptoms to ensure they are negligible. People often have to maintain very careful and balanced diets, be careful not to exercise too much or too little, and rely on many medicines. Sounds stressful?
It is, and symptoms are often aggravated under extreme stress. People suffering from PCOS go through much pain, and here at Tea Trove, we recognize that. We have relied on our network of health and tea artisans to come to the help of the various women who go through this pain.
The Tea Trove ‘For Her’ PCOD/OS Blend is crafted to aid those who suffer from this disorder. An ayurvedic blend of a variety of ingredients, it not only helps with your digestion and gut health, but also reduces inflammation and regulate sex hormones like androgen and estrogen. The Unique-IS2 probiotic strain survives and germinates in the harsh conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, in the range of pH 2.0 – 0.5. It remains stable over a range of temperatures, allowing drinkers to take it the way they prefer – hot or cold – with no reduction in its efficacy.
There are a variety of ingredients that go into our blend that manage the multiple symptoms of PCOD. Chaste tree berry, licorice and spearmint help balance hormone levels, which is very helpful in improving amenorrhea, infertility, acne, and unwanted facial hair. Gymnema treats insulin resistance also known as metabolic syndrome, which presents itself through weight gain and high blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. Ashwagandha and giloy are adaptogenic herbs in our blend for managing stress levels, regulating hormone prolactin levels and androgen synthesis. Milk thistle helps nurture a healthy liver.
You should give this PCOS drink a six-month game plan along with low-carbohydrate diet and regular and moderate exercise. Discontinue use once pregnancy is confirmed with blood or urine test.
