Menstruation is a tough time for us women. Period cramps, heavy flow and of course, the much fear irregularity. But these take a back seat when the bigger issue, PCOS is at hand. PCOS(Polycyctic Ovary Syndrome) occurs to women during their ovulation years.
There is a balance of estrogen and testosterone hormones in women’s’ bodies, which when facing a dis-balance, can lead to cysts forming inside the ovaries.
PCOS have varying symptoms. These can lead to obesity, depression, lack of or heavy menstruation and even infertility.

Bibhitaki also helps in constipation due to its natural laxative quality. This also helps boosting immunity that helps fighting off illness during the times of period.
