Citrus bergamia grows in the coast of Southern Calabria, Italy. It contains natural polyphenolic antioxidants and free radical scavengers that have been found to help with cholesterol and blood glucose levels.
Berberine HCL (Hydrochloride) Extract is commonly found in many natural plants and can help regulate blood sugar, insulin, lower cholesterol levels, and help with weight loss, among other benefits. It’s great for improving the symptoms of PCOS.
Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is grown at high elevations in the Andes region of central Peru.

Vitex (chasteberry) is widely used to promote overall health and balance in a woman’s cycle.
Lycopene is an antioxidant that helps you get healthy, radiant skin by working against harmful free radicals. It has also been linked to general heart health and prostate function.
Chromium is a trace mineral that enhances the action of insulin. Some studies have shown supplementing with chromium may improve blood sugar control. In one study, women with PCOS were given 1,000 mcg per day of chromium for two months and in that time results showed improved insulin sensitivity by 30% in average weight women and by 38% in obese women with PCOS.
Licorice Root Powder is a useful ingredient because Italian researchers have found that licorice root can help reduce serum testosterone in women with PCOS. The researchers believe that the glycyrrhizin in this herb inhibits an enzyme that is required for testosterone production. Licorice can also be used as an adjuvant therapy for hirsutism. Also, licorice root promotes ovulation and aids with liver detoxification. The liver removes toxins and excess hormones and therefore helps with hormonal balance.
Artichoke Leaf Powder is great because artichokes have many so wonderful qualities! They are full of antioxidants and can reduce the growth of cancerous cells. Artichokes also have antioxidants cynarin and silymarin which aid in regenerating liver tissue. They are high in fiber and can help to improve your digestion.
Amla (Amalaki, Indian Gooseberry, Emblica Officinalis) fruit is very well established as a remedy for a variety of disorders including diabetes, atherosclerosis, acidity, asthma, constipation, inflammation, obesity, etc. It is very rich in antioxidants and abundant in vitamin C. It contains chromium which is believed to give it the ability to temper diabetes. It also contains nutrients that promote healthy hair growth – Amla is highly beneficial for women who suffer from alopecia areata (hair loss) due to PCOS. It is very effective in shedding weight when supplemented by good diet, nutritional supplements and a healthy lifestyle. Amla also stimulates the liver and helps it to flush out accumulated toxins efficiently; this is particularly useful in patients whose symptoms are side-effects of long-term use of birth-control pills and other hormonal drugs.
Organic Cassia Bark Powder (Cinnamon) is an important ingredient because cinnamon is a common recommendation for PCOS to help with fighting insulin resistance. Insulin resistance can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. More than half of the women with PCOS have insulin resistance, which can wreak havoc on your hormones, and is already an issue when you have PCOS.
Insulin resistance can interfere with normal ovulation by preventing the body from ovulating or limiting the maturation process of the released egg.
High levels of glucose in the blood can lead to many symptoms and complications, including increasing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
As mentioned before, cinnamon is one of the best natural remedies for managing blood sugar levels to help prevent insulin resistance. Various studies around the world have shown how effective cinnamon is for reducing blood sugar levels, so if you’re dealing with insulin resistance, you could really use some of this spice in your life.
