Inositol has insulin-like properties and acts as a second messenger for insulin inside the cells. Inositol is involved in improving insulin sensitivity, reducing androgen, and restoring regular ovulation.

Vitamin D

The sunshine vitamin improves insulin sensitivity and promotes healthy ovarian follicular maturation. Ideally, you should test your vitamin D levels. Minimum dosage: 1000 IU/25 ug daily; more if deficient.
