Mineral & Vitamins for PCOS, PCOD Care

PCOS is a gynae pandemic. It is affecting women across all ages across the globe. 

There are two ways to take care of yourself when you have PCOS :

  1. Lifestyle management
  2. Medications

We always favour the natural lifestyle management of PCOS because not only it treats it, it also improves overall health of the person. 

What vitamins and minerals are important in PCOS management? 

  1. Iron

Many of PCOS patients have anemia because of heavy menstrual flow. 

So incase your iron level or Hb is low, eat iron rich foods like spinach, methi, mustard, kale, brocolli, apple, banana, dates, jaggery. 

  1. Zinc

It is a trace element known to help in fertility and immune function. It decreases cholesterol level, improves hirsutism and improves insulin resistance. It also aids in weight loss.

It is available in plenty in food items like nuts, seeds and grains. 

  1. Chromium

It is known to decrease BMI, reduce free androgen levels, and reduce insulin levels. 

It is abundantly present in apples, bananas, grains and nuts.
