Women with PCOS tend to have higher levels of the male hormones testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) than other women. DHT is the hormone partly responsible for male-pattern hair growth and male-pattern hair loss in women.
Saw Palmetto berry, pygeum and nettles each contain substances that inhibit the conversion of testosterone into DHT and thus have a dampening effect on DHT, a primary driver of male-pattern hair growth.
Pygeum contains substances that have been reported to work synergistically to reduce levels of luteinizing hormone (LH), prolactin, and testosterone, excessive levels of which create problems for PCOS.*
