Following is a list of the most powerful plants used in eliminating the symptoms of this physical condition.

Saw Palmetto

The extracts made from this plant have been successfully used in regulating estrogen levels in the female body. The overproduction of this hormone is one of the symptoms most frequently associated with PCOS. In addition to restoring the normal balance of estrogen–testosterone in the blood, this herbal remedy also facilitates weight loss and increases libido.

Maitake Mushroom

PCOS is also associated with insulin resistance. The extract of this mushroom is known to be able to reduce this insulin resistance, helping to maintain blood sugar at a healthy level and having other beneficial effects, like restoring the healthy metabolism of glucose and lipids, and promoting healthy body weight as well.

White Peony

Used in the form of tea, this plant is used for regulating the levels of another hormone essential for fertility, progesterone. Women suffering from PCOS usually have low progesterone levels, a problem successfully remedied if the patient consumes peony tea on a daily basis. Additional benefits of this supplement include the regulation of estrogen and prolactin secretion, also important for conception.

Dandelion Root

Known as an excellent tonic for the liver, dandelion root extract reduces PCOS symptoms by helping the body eliminate the excess hormones accumulated in the liver. It also removes the toxins from the body, thus helping women suffering from menstrual disorders and fertility problems.


Widely used as a spice, cinnamon has numerous beneficial effects on the body, the increase of insulin sensitivity being the quality that makes it useful in the treatment of PCOS. It helps control blood sugar levels and facilitates weight loss as well.

Soy Isoflavones

Women with PCOS often suffer from infertility because of anovulation. Soy isoflavones have effects similar to Clomid, a prescription drug widely used for treating ovulation disorders successfully.

If you are suffering from PCOS-related infertility, you can try out some of these natural remedies. PCOS herbal treatment options can be great alternatives to prescription medication; however, always consult your doctor before taking any of them, to make sure you are not allergic to them or suffer from any condition they might aggravate.
