Although the disease typically afflicts young women, PCOS can manifest itself at any age. The PCOS hormonal imbalances can cause different diseases that can range in severity from skin disorders, sleep apnea to infertility, diabetes, heart diseases and cancer. The exact cause of PCOS remains unknown, but research has focused on ovarian cells and adrenal glands overproduction of hormones. Treatments that attempt to regulate the hormonal imbalances involve oral contraceptives to different compounds such as metformin; however, these treatments are not ideal and at times not clinically acceptable.Resveratrol And PCOSA research group at UCSD has described the first clinical trials evaluating the effects of resveratrol on PCOS using micronized resveratrol provided by RevGenetics (Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, doi: 10.1210/jc.2016-1858).Sign Up To Get Manufacturer Discounts Sign Up For DiscountsResveratrol ResultsThe study that was also registered in ClinicalTrials.gov was remarkable not only because it was the first of its kind but also because of the amazing results.This study demonstrated that resveratrol could lower the hormone levels originating from both ovarian tissue and adrenal glands. Specifically, in a 3-month period the women taking a 1500 mg of resveratrol lowered their hormone levels originating from the ovaries by as much as 23.1% and the adrenal glands by 22.2%. These results are better than current treatments.Resveratrol A Superior AlternativeConsidering that other PCOS studies using oral contraceptives for 12-month results in only 19% reduction of ovary hormonal secretions; proving that resveratrol is a superior alternative. Also, in another study using metformin for a 6-month period as a way to treat PCOS resulted in an insignificant 8.2% hormone reduction.Resveratrol Hormone Side EffectsAnother benefit of taking resveratrol is that it does not have the undesirable side effects of metformin, i.e., diarrhea, vomiting and nausea that can occur to some people taking this compound. On the contrary, the women in this study taking resveratrol also had a 31.8% decrease in fasting insulin level and an increase in the insulin sensitivity index.Resveratrol Works FasterIn short, resveratrol works faster and better that other PCOS forms of treatments being done in the United States.About RevGenetics: RevGenetics provides pure EU organic resveratrol to Universities for research.
