D-chiro-inositol is extracted by a patented process from Carob (Ceratonia siliqua) pod that mostly found in Southern Europe. Deficiency of D-chiro-inositol in peripheral tissue causes insulin resistance that leads to hyperandrogenism in ovaries which results polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). D-chiro-inositol helps to regulate the balance between androgen and estrogen by decreasing luteinizing hormone and serum testosterone level. It improves glucose tolerance and reduces circulating insulin. It reduces oxidative stress on follicle and decreases total cholesterol and triglyceride levels. D-chiro-inositol has been clinically proven as an effective treatment of ovarian cyst and PCOS associated metabolic disorders. It helps to improve and regulate normal ovulation after two weeks of administration. It also reduces hyperandrogenism related skin disorders like hirsutism, alopecia, acanthosis nigricans and acne. It lowers cardiovascular risk in women who are suffering from PCOS by controlling arterial pressure.
