Glutathione & Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS affects 1 in 15 women. It is the most common reproductive endocrine condition.
There are common distinguishing features which differentiate between irregular menses and PCOS
Diagnostic indications for PCOS are: no monthly ovulation, high levels of androgens and/or cysts on the ovaries.
Secondary symptoms of PCOS are hirsutism (hair growth on the face), hair loss, acne, weight gain, and infertility due to the increase of cysts on the ovaries.
Women with PCOS are also predisposed to type 2 diabetes (Craggs-Halen & Balen, 2004).
This diagnosis continues to pathologize gender presentations which are polymorphed, yet does not recognize that Nature has a variety of ways of presenting itself.
Unfortunately, the body is viewed and measured by social and cultural meanings which maintain binary ideology.
Glutathione is The Master Antioxidant which rapidly eliminates Oxidative Stress.
Oxidative stress is understood as the imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants and the formulation of too much of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Studies have revealed that oxidative circulating markers are significantly increased in patients with PCOS compared with the normal and are considered as a potential inducement of PCOS pathogenesis.
