Top Healthy Homemade Drinks For PCOS

Top Healthy Homemade Drinks For PCOS

We're often told that living a healthy lifestyle is an integral part of managing PCOS, but introducing a ton of lifestyle changes in one go can seem daunting. We're here to tell you that you needn't achieve an athlete's regime to control your PCOS. Small, consistent changes are enough to get you started. You could introduce a 20 minute walk everyday or switch to a meal that is more green, or simply introduce healthy drinks that are super easy to make and extremely effective (no, they aren't bitter concoctions that seem like punishment).

Homemade Drinks to Manage PCOS

We've made a list of homemade drinks to manage PCOS that will help you kickstart your journey to the healthiest version of yourself.

Aloe Vera Juice

Refreshing, fresh, and hydrating-Aloe juice is the perfect drink to help your body get that extra lubrication to flush out all the toxins and cleanse your digestive system.

Green Tea

Green tea is a potent antioxidant since it contains catechins, compounds that can help regulate blood pressure, increase weight loss, and protect the brain. Certain studies conducted have also proven that green tea has a positive impact on reducing the symptoms of PCOS.

Moringa Water

Androgens help people enter puberty and mature physically. Females with high androgen levels may develop acne, facial hair and other PCOS symptoms.

Moringa water is great to manage PCOS since the Moringa plant is known to reduce insulin levels which in turn reduce androgen levels in the body. Androgens like testosterone are sex hormones.

Chamomile Tea

Effective in calming your nerves and releasing anxiety, chamomile tea can be very soothing when dealing with PCOS induced mood swings.

Herbal Tea

Blends of Ayurvedic herbs are great PCOD drinks to consume. Herbs like Ashwagandha that serves as a natural energy booster, Lodhra that reduces heavy menstrual bleeding, or Daruharidra that controls acne and hair fall are natural and powerful ways to fight the frustrating symptoms of PCOS in the safest manner. Herbal blends like The Basics Herbal PCOS Tea prove as powerful hormone balancing blends that are easy to consume and require minimal effort.

Mulethi Water

Mulethi

Mulethi or Licorice contains anti-inflammatory and anti-androgenic traits that make it one of the best drinks for PCOS. It is also effective in reducing inflammation, insulin resistance, and stress. It also aids in liver detoxification and improves immunity and gut health.

Fenugreek Seeds Water

Fenugreek Seeds Water

Fenugreek seeds extract is effective in lowering blood glucose and improves insulin sensitivity. According to a recent study, women who consumed fenugreek had a decrease in PAO (polycystic appearing ovaries). All you need to do is soak fenugreek seeds overnight and consume it first thing in the morning to improve the health of your ovaries.

Cinnamon Tea

Cinnamon has been found to have an insulin sensitizing effect and a positive effect on menstrual cyclicity in women with PCOS. Herbal PCOS teas often include cinnamon to reduce the symptoms of PCOS.

Much like every other aspect of living a healthy life, consistency is key when managing PCOS. Choose a PCOS drink that you like consuming on a day to day basis and the trick is to find blends that give you the goodness of multiple ingredients so that you can benefit from the abundant goodness of natural ingredients.
