Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a disorder characterized by hormonal imbalance, irregular menstrual periods, excess hair growth, and obesity. Women with PCOS typically have numerous cysts on the ovaries. PCOS is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age, affecting an estimated 5–10 percent of the Indian population.
In PCOS, the body produces an excess amount of androgens, and the ratio of luteinizing hormone to the follicle-stimulating hormone is abnormally high. Ovulation occurs less frequently, or the ovaries don’t release eggs at all. In the absence of ovulation, the menstrual cycle is irregular or absent, and cysts containing immature eggs form on the ovaries. This causes the ovaries to enlarge.

Benefits of BIOSOL Natural Protein in PCOS
Clinical Research studies show that a high-protein/low-carb diet can be beneficial in a number of ways in PCOS:
- Help boost metabolism: All foods have a thermic effect, meaning they increase the rate of metabolism and the amount of calories burned. The thermic effect of protein is between 15% and 30%, far greater than that of carbohydrates (5% to 10%) or fats (0% to 3%). Eating more protein can increase the number of calories burned per day by as many as 100.
- Control appetite: Protein stimulates the production of cholecystokinin, glucagon-like peptide 1, and peptide YY, hormones that are involved in satiety, helping to reign in appetite and reduce cravings.
- Improve blood sugar control: All foods trigger a glycemic response in which blood sugar (glucose) levels increase. Because protein is digested slowly, its impact on blood sugar is relatively low. A 2019 study in Diabetologia reported that adults with type 2 diabetes who followed a high-protein diet for six weeks had reductions in both postprandial (post-eating) and fasting glucose levels.
- Temper the insulin response: Protein stimulates the release of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood glucose levels and counteracts the action of insulin. The right amount of protein can help balance the levels of glucagon and insulin in the blood.
- Research looking at the effects of a high-protein diet on PCOS has been promising. For example, a 2012 study from Denmark reported that women with PCOS who followed such a diet for six months lost an average of nine pounds of body fat.
- Similar results were seen in a 2012 study from Iran in which 60 overweight women with PCOS who followed a diet made up of 30% protein not only lost weight but also had lower testosterone levels and improved insulin sensitivity.
- There is evidence, to suggest that increasing the amount of protein in the diet from 15% of calories to 30% or even more than 40% may be highly beneficial in PCOS.
- This is along the top end of recommendations by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) that women 19 and over get 10% to 35% or more of their daily calories from protein supplementation.
- According to a 2014 study in the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics, that increasing the amount of protein in the diet from 15% of calories to 30% or even more than 40% can improve insulin sensitivity, hyperandrogenism (high testosterone), menstrual function, and fertility in women with PCOS.
