Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders, affecting up to 20% of women of reproductive age.1 PCOS is associated with elevated male sex hormones, impaired insulin sensitivity and reproductive dysfunction, including menstrual irregularity and infertility.1 Myo-inositol helps restore the activities of ovaries in PCOS patients through its role as a precursor to inositol 1,4,5-triphosphate (InsP3), which regulates menstrual cycle hormones and oocyte maturation.2,3 Myo-inositol also promotes the production of inositolphosphoglycans (IPG), which activate enzymes involved in glucose metabolism.2 In a clinical trial involving 42 women with PCOS, participants were randomized to consume 400 mcg of folic acid alone or in combination with 4 g of myo-inositol daily for six to eight weeks.4 When compared to the placebo folic acid group, women in the myo-inositol group experienced more cycles of ovulation (69.5% ovulated in the myo-inositol group compared with 21% in the placebo group), lower testosterone levels, and improved insulin sensitivity.4
