OviVance combats insulin resistance related to common gynaecological disorders. It contains a unique blend of plant-derived phytochemical ingredients, vitamins and minerals that help to optimise reproductive health. This blend leads to more rapid improvement in insulin sensitivity and hormonal imbalances.
These ingredients are:
Inositol, a naturally occurring nutrient which exist in the body in two forms: myo (MI) and D-chiro-inositol (DCI). Both act in fertility, reproduction and metabolic health. Problems in the balance between these two forms of inositol results in reduced insulin sensitivity and poor ovary function. Clinical studies have shown that inositol, especially at the ratio provided by OviVance, improves regulation of insulin and insulin sensitivity, ovulation and follicular maturation, egg quality and quantity and restores menstrual cycle regularity.
OviVance contains L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), the natural form of folate, offering benefits such as better absorption and increased safety. Folate is essential to reproductive and foetal development, and supplementation improves menstrual function and regularity of ovulation, enhances reproductive outcomes and response to fertility treatment, and helps prevent neural tube defects, preeclampsia, miscarriage and congenital abnormalities. Regarding MetS and PCOS, folate aids in avoiding hyperhomocysteinemia, a condition responsible for cardiovascular damage and cancer.
Choline is a vital nutrient in liver, neurological, musculoskeletal and cellular membrane function. During reproduction and pregnancy, choline is essential due to increased cell-division and membrane synthesis, reduces placental inflammation, improves placental vascular development and angiogenesis, and leads to better neurodevelopment and further reduced chance of neural tube defects.
Vitamin Ais a nutrient essential to normal growth, especially during foetal, neonatal and childhood development of the organs and immune system.
Vitamin B6, a coenzyme in over one hundred enzymatic reactions is known to reduce the symptoms of morning sickness, nausea, vomiting and postpartum depression. The vitamin is also involved in reducing homocysteine, benefitting PCOS patients.
Vitamin B12 is essential to optimal infant neurological development and prevention of neural tube defects, pre-term delivery and preeclampsia amongst others. The vitamin is also involved in reducing homocysteine levels alongside folate, vitamin B6 and choline.
Vitamin D positively affects the ability to conceive through improved egg maturation, fertilisation rates and menstrual regularity, and reduces risk for preterm birth and preeclampsia. The vitamin is also well known to assist in MetS and PCOS through reduction in insulin resistance, dyslipidaemia and obesity.
Iodineis required for synthesis of thyroid hormones, and low intake reduces fertility rates, impairs neurodevelopment, and leads to spontaneous miscarriage, congenital abnormalities and other issues in pregnancy.
Magnesium improves pregnancy rates and reduces the occurrence of preterm labour, preeclampsia and growth restriction. It also assists metabolic aspects of female health, especially in terms of MetS, PCOS and reducing the risk of gestational diabetes.
Selenium occupies major roles in immunity and redox processes. Supplementation may lessen the risk of neural tube defects and preeclampsia, while improving cognitive development. It also has well established roles in MetS and PCOS, insulin sensitization, inverse relationship with androgenic hormone levels
Zinc is important to optimal health during pregnancy, as well as addressing PCOS and MetS, especially through reducing inflammation and oxidative stress, improving insulin sensitivity, blood sugar regulation and dyslipidaemia.
