- Works to correct magnesium deficiencies, 19x more common in women with PCOS
- Specifically blended to regulate androgens and normalise insulin in PCOS
- Contains magnesium, an essential mineral for regular periods
Women with PCOS are 19x more likely to have a magnesium deficiency compared to women without PCOS, and as magnesium is involved in hundreds of important chemical reactions in the body, this can create serious issues. Luckily, supplementing with magnesium can help with any deficiency-related problem and work on processes such as regulating blood sugar, temperature, liver detoxification and the healthy formation of bones and teeth
Research also suggests that magnesium normalises insulin levels by improving insulin sensitivity. For women with PCOS, healthy insulin sensitivity means fewer insulin-related symptoms like weight gain, cravings, and irregular periods.
Zinc helps in reducing insulin resistance, which is a major contributor to the development of PCOS. It also helps regulate the levels of androgens (male hormones), which are elevated in women with PCOS and contribute to the development of symptoms like hair growth, loss, acne and irregular periods. Zinc is also involved in follicle development and ovulation, which are often disrupted in women with PCOS.

Improving metabolic profiles in PCOS: PMID (31696157).
In a parallel randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial 60 women with PCOS aged 20–45 years were recruited for magnesium supplementation. After the 8 weeks of magnesium supplementation among women with PCOS the following was found:
• Favourable effects on BMI compared with placebo group
• A decrease in waist circumference
• Increase in serum luteinising hormone (LH) levels (crucial for ovulation)
Effect Zinc Has on Inhibiting The Conversion of Testosterone to Diihydrotestosterone (DHT): PMID (28347315).
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.
Can ZMA be taken with birth control?
Can I take Balance with this also given it also has zinc and magnesium?
Yes, combined, you will not exceed any daily recommended dosages.
