JOCELYN HAS BEEN FEATURED ON:

In my online fertility program (www.myhealthypregnancyplan.com), I share prescription and nutrient options for inducing ovulation in PCOS patients, including NAC, inositol, black cohosh and Vitamin D.

A new study from Iraq is exploring the use of Curcumin (turmeric) in normalizing levels of LH and FSH hormones, and inducing ovulation in female rats where PCOS was induced by the use of letrozole. The study found it to be effective at normalizing the pituitary-ovarian axis hormones, and promoting healthy follicular development and ovulation. 

Curcumin is a known herbal anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, with a safe track record of success with male fertility as well. Best of all, it is a delicious, widely available and affordable addition to any meal, especially curries and soups.

While it remains to be seen how this most recent trial will translate into human studies, it is a promising start!

I hope you have found this helpful, and do let me know if you have any questions!
