Vitamin D, Inositol and PCOS/Fertility

This came from Nancy Dunne's Newsletter. It is great for learning more about reducing PCOS symptoms and increasing fertility.

Inositol Improves Quality of Your Eggs

In previous newsletters we've shared with you
several studies showing that the B-vitamin inositol
and d-pinitol (another form of inositol) are useful
for improving ovulation, reducing insulin resistance
and reducing symptoms of PCOS.

New evidence suggests inositol may also be
beneficial for improving egg quality in women who
have PCOS.

You need to have good egg quality in order to
become pregnant, and in order to avoid a
miscarriage. As you may know, PCOS women
have a greater risk of miscarriage.

The results of this study indicate that if you are
interested in increasing your chances of becoming
pregnant and reducing risk of miscarriage, inositol
supplementation is advisable.

It appears that women with PCOS have a need for
higher inositol intake because they metabolize and
lose it faster than other women.
