There are many different hormonal imbalances involved in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). As such, different herbal blends work for different types of PCOS patients.
Our tea blend is geared to those women with high androgens (high testosterone and high DHEA) which is what often causes the acne and hair growth.
Spearmint tea helps lower the DHEA, the total testosterone and free testosterone.
Green tea helps to increase the sex hormone-binding globulin which helps to mop up the extra testosterone. Green tea has also been linked to a two-fold increase in fertility.
The studies to reduce the hormones were done over two months so don’t expect to drink just one cup every once in a while to see the changes. Two cups per day is required for this therapeutic effect.
That said, it’s a tasty tea that can be enjoyed by anybody anytime.
PCOS blend is available at Simply Tea and Chocolate downtown Barrie and at Rooted Naturopathic Clinic
