Why does it occur?
PCOS occurs when a woman is not, an ovulation which interruption in the normal, cyclical interrelationship between their hormones, brain and ovaries.
The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. In the past, it was thought that PCOS was completely caused by overproduction of androgens. Recent studies have shown that metabolic syndrome with insulin resistance and high insulin important roles in PCOS play.
Metabolic syndrome can be the condition that best illustrates the long-term effects of our Western lifestyle habits. The usual suspects are responsible: high calorie / high carbohydrate diet, lack of exercise, hormonal disorders and chronic stress are some of the most important causes of metabolic dysfunction.

Finally, this type of diet causes obesity, which will cause insulin resistance (the inability which participating cells to insulin), which aggravate the PCOS even more.
