PCOS herbal remedies are a dime a dozen these days. It is one of those proposed solutions sought by PCOS sufferers. Let me tell you now that PCOS is a condition best treated with various combinations of pharmaceutical products, alternative medications, and holistic approaches.

Holistic treatments for PCOS focus on the underlying conditions that upset the balances in your hormones. I've found that this is by far the best approaches to PCOS treatment and highly recommend Natural Ovarian Cysts Relief Secrets to anyone that would consider knowing what herbal supplements are required.

To stay on topic, we will be talking about PCOS herbal remedies. Before I give out one useful herb for fighting PCOS, let me clear up one thing. I strongly advise against using herbal supplements ALONE for your battle against PCOS. Herbal supplements are merely supplements as the name says. It is in no way intended to replace the medications your doctor advised. With that said, let's move on to one useful herb you can get your hands on: Gymnema Sylvestre.

Gymnema sylvestre is just one of many in the plant family of gymnema, but is the only known herb with use in medicine, so we'll call it gymnema from here on. Gymnema has been in use for medicine since ancient times. Today, you can find and purchase it online and from various stores. Gymnema typically comes in pills.

PCOS sufferers often have the case of insulin resistance. This means that insulin is not absorbed by the body, resulting to the blood sugar levels shooting up. When the body detects too much blood sugar, it produces more insulin. It's a classic case of body organs and their broken chain of command. Gymnema helps in PCOS treatment by keeping blood sugar levels down.

Dosage of PCOS herbal remedies that contain gymnema is usually 400 to 600 milligrams. There are no reports so far regarding adverse reactions to the supplement save for intolerance of some pharmacological components or conflicting components with the herbal supplement and the main medications.
