Note: Years ago, when I wrote this article, inositols were new to the market. Since then, they have become a mainstay of PCOS treatment. As more research was completed, we learned that the most effect could be found by combining both myo insoitol and D-Chiro inositol. You can find this modern combination in Ovasitol. For more about his powerful combination, read my article, “Why I Use Ovasitol – Combo Myo/D-chiro Supplement.” Also, please note that Pregnitude contains folic acid instead of folate. For more about why this is a concern, read, “What Every Woman With PCOS Needs to Know About Folic Acid.”
When I first heard about the marketing of myo-inositol under the name Pregnitude, I was skeptical. I have to admit, I thought it sounded like a pharmaceutical company was just jumping on the PCOS bandwagon with another nutritional supplement marketing to women with PCOS who are trying to get pregnant. The name sure sounds like a fertility drug.
Before you continue to read about Pregnitude, you may want to learn more about the benefits of myo-inositol. For more info on myo-inositol read my post. You’ll also want to read how Dr. Scott Roseff, a leading Reproductive Endocrinologist is using myo-inositol in his practice.
The more I investigated this product, the more I realized that it is the real deal. It is actually a myo-inositol and folic acid nutritional supplement that has been around for years in Europe and extensively tested with great results. In Europe it is known as INOFOLIC and is made in Italy by LO.LI Pharma. U.S based Everett Laboratories Inc. is now distributing this same product under the name Pregnitude in the U.S. market.
Pregnitude comes in a box of 60 packets that each contain the 2g of myo-inositol powder and 2oo mcg folic acid. All you do is empty one packet in a 8 ounce glass of water and drink. I tried it today and couldn’t taste a thing. The typical dosage is one packet in the morning and one packet in the evening. One box of Pregnitude contains 60 packets designed to last one month.
Since Pregnitude is a nutritional supplement, it is available without a prescription, but it is important to speak to your physician prior to taking any supplement. The cost of Pregnitude online is $39.99.
