PCOS or Polycystic ovary syndrome can cause as many hassles as its pronunciation does! 5 to 10% of Indian women deal with it in their reproductive age and the incidence seems to be going up.  Simply put, PCOS is a common disorder of the endocrine system (which includes all the glands in your body that make hormones).  And if you’re wondering how you got it, well unhealthy lifestyle is a major reason. Some of the main symptoms include weight gain, infertility, mood swings and hormonal imbalance

Nirogam’s effective formulation for PCOS

Ayurveda recognises PCOS as a kapha predominant condition and based on this, Nirogam has formulated a unique combination of herbs called Picoshunya that is aimed at addressing all the symptoms of PCOS and treating irregular menstrual cycles.

How does it work?

  1. It increases the digestive fire after digestion and detoxifies the body.
  2. It has a diuretic effect and anti inflammatory properties, both of which reduce obesity.
  3. All of the above have the effect of eliminating cysts, promoting regular periods and improving the health of the endometrium (the lining of the uterus).
  4. The formulation acts on sugar level to maintain them and burns fat to boost the metabolism.
  5. Both of the above regulate the hormonal levels leading to better ovulation and enhanced fertility.
