Many of my readers have asked me about the polycystic ovaries, its possible causes, consequences, and what would be some good natural ways to treat this syndrome, and today I want to please them with this post.

A tremendous amount of young women increasingly suffer from polycystic ovaries, I would think that there is a shared youth factor that makes all suffer from the same… Will a poor diet, stress, constant weight changes in the search of feeling comfortable have something to do with polycystic ovaries?

While we investigate, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is caused by a hormonal change that makes it hard to ovary releasing mature eggs, that is, no ovulation occurs. These changes can generate:

  • Difficulties to lose weight
  • Excess hair
  • Acne
  • Hair loss
  • Fertility problems
  • Menstrual pain (cramps)

5 Natural remedies for polycystic ovaries

Today I give you some natural remedies that can prevent and help with hormonal changes:

  • Cinnamon tea: helps regulate the menstrual cycle in women and helps relieve menstrual pain (cramps). Mix two tablespoons cinnamon in a glass of warm water and take it once a day.
  • Apple cider vinegar: This is a good ally to maintain levels of blood pressure, slowing your body to produce too much insulin. Diabetes is a condition that tends to polycystic ovaries. Mix two tablespoons of vinegar per cup and drink it before meals.
  • Mint tea: mint components are excellent regulators of hormones and help fight pain. Add mint leaves in your green tea and drink it daily.
  • Maca: this root is known for its hormone regulating properties and helps fight menopause. You can take it in tablet or powder form, the recommendation is 3gramos day. (Learn more about maca here)
  • Linseed oil: rich in omega-3 and omega-6 nutrients that regulate hormone levels and promote ovulation cycles. You can take a tablespoon a day.
