ZMA contains two of the most important micro minerals needed by women with PCOS - magnesium and zinc.
- Reduces testosterone levels
- Reduces acne
- Reduces unwanted hair growth & loss
- Lowers insulin levels
Hair thinning/loss is a symptom of high androgen levels in women with PCOS. A percentage of your testosterone is converted into a much more potent androgen called DHT (dihydrotestosterone).
It's this DHT that blocks the hair follicle cycle leading to hair thinning and loss, especially on the scalp. Zinc helps to block this conversion, thus, helping to reduce hair loss
The effect of magnesium supplementation on metabolic profiles and levels of hormones, thus clinical symptoms, in PCOS
Taken from Biological trace element research -- In a parallel randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial 60 women with PCOS aged 20–45 years were recruited. Participants were randomly assigned to consume magnesium supplements (containing 250 mg magnesium oxide) or placebo for 8 weeks. After the 8 weeks of magnesium supplementation among women with PCOS the following was found:
The effect zinc has on inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
Taken from Nutrients -- PCOS is associated with a distinct increase in global activity of 5α-reductase and this leads to an enhanced conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) - the more potent form of testosterone. Zinc is considered an anti-androgen by inhibiting 5α-reductase and thus decreasing the production of DHT.
